Mirror, Mirror

Unfortunately, there is a double meaning behind the title of my post today. Originally, the title was going to be about my new sunglasses. Lately, I have caught the mirrored sunglasses bug after seeing them on bloggers and in stores over the last few months or so. I was considering investing in some Illvesta mirrored sunglasses, but when I saw these for a little over $10 from the J. Crew Factory, I thought I would pocket the extra $200 for something else. Truth be told, these are actually men's sunglasses, but they are actually quite smalleither that or I have a large head. It's probably both!

The other more unfortunate side of my title comes from the fact that the day I "debuted" these new glasses was also the day that someone hit the mirror of my parked car in the parking lot of Target. I am always careful to park away from other cars and walk; it's good for the car and good for me, but today it didn't pay off and I found my mirror dangling off the side of the car. Of course, no note was left, so now that $200 I saved on my glasses is going toward the $400 cost to buy and install a new mirror. In the words of Full House's Michelle Tanner, "How Rude!"

    1. Yes, I totally feel like this outfit is straight from a j.crew or j.crew factory ad, which in a way, I guess it is! Thanks for your kind words and sentiments about my car.

  9. Oh wow that wasn't nice. I had that same thing happen to me in college and of course most of my part time job paycheck went towards getting another one then. I love your new sunnies and top though. Cute look and thank you for linking up to
