ITEM OF THE DAY Item of the Day Edward Hansen

My item of the day is super important in a harmful UV-Ray kind of way.  Sunglasses aren’t just an important accessory, they actually protect the windows of your soul from imminent ozone damage.  Personally, I tend to like my sunglasses the same way I like my men, “large and in charge.”  Okay, that’s a joke: beautiful sunglasses come in all shapes and sizes.  My boy Socrates once said, “Know Thyself” and I couldn’t agree more.  Following Socrates’ ancient advice, I know that a classic and/or modern take on the aviator frame works totally well with my face!

One day, several months ago, I walked into the Solstice at the Beverly Center and my eyes were immediately drawn to the Tom Ford section of the sunglasses wall.  Scanning the wall, I spotted these gorgeous, modern black aviator-framed sunglasses (with a perfect black-grey lenses).  After I tried them on, I knew I had to have them, but I couldn’t wrap my head around spending $500 for a pair of sunglasses.  So I walked away from them, and it’s true what they say: walking away from true love is totally heart-wrenching and soul crushing.

Still, I thought about my true love-my Tom Ford “Ace” Sunglasses.  Sadly, I’m not Dana Wilkey of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who spent $25,000 on “gold and python” sunglasses (gauche!); my sunglasses-budget is just slightly more humble. Thankfully, there is this wonderful entity called “eBay”, which I used for the very first time to buy my Tom Ford “Ace” Sunglasses.

Initially, I was quite hesitant to use eBay: I had never it used it before and I was scared they were going to send me fake sunglasses (baby doesn’t wear fakes).  Despite my fears, I purchased my Tom Ford “Ace” Sunglasses at an extremely reasonable price, and when I opened the box and saw the majestic beauty of my “Ace” (and the authenticity card), I knew it was the right decision.  And I couldn’t be happier or more in love!

Officially, I’m aware that my aviator shades are a little Angelyne-esque (maybe meeting her rubbed off on me?), but sometimes life can be a crazy deck of cards, and it’s always good to find an Ace!

If you’re feeling luxurious, you can grab yours at Saks Fifth Avenue.
