MOD Monday

It's almost time...Summer 2011 is right around the corner depending on what part of the United States you live, so with that being said, today's topic is 'sunglasses' but not just any shades of course, we're gonna be talking MOD!  There have been so many variations of shapes and styles throughout the years but the one that's making a loud revival is the return of the big white chunky mod frame of the 1960's.  Screen stars of the vintage era gone by, Audrey Hepburn & Grace Kelly were the first to make white mod shades scene savvy.


    
The round shape was popular in the 60's early 70's and evolved into an oversized oval.  Although there hasn't been too much variation over time, this frame will never go out of style!




In the 90's, the late grunge rocker Kurt Cobain of the then popular band Nirvana, made these shades rock and and shortly thereafter, everyone was else was too! 



White is a universal color for all seasons these days so you can throw away the notions of the past that you're not supposed to wear this bare hue beyond Labor Day and after all, if the 'It Girl's' Nicole, Drew & Paris give these pale shades a thumbs up then you know you're all good to go!
