Modern 50s Chic: Cat Eye Sunglasses


It's so true when they say 'history repeats itself'.  Marilyn Monroe was famous for wearing cat eye sunglasses in the 50s, but after spotting Kourtney Kardashian rocking them, I was in love.  It's an easy way to glam any outfit - like that simple summer-to-fall floral dress & denim jacket combo.  What do you think?!



Well, luckily I snagged a bunch of Deadstock Vintage Cat Eye Sunglasses on last month's treasure hunting spree and they're now for sale at the online shop!


Meow.. Express your inner kitten, girls! ♥

  2. I found your blog via FTLOB and I am so glad I did! I love all things vintage. I love the cat eye sunglasses look. Especially when Kourtney Kardashian wears them! I love her style. I am not sure I can pull off the cat eye glasses but I think I now definitely have to give them a try! Cute blog!
