shopbop | review

Well, I finally made my decision! I did decide on the Marc by Marc Jacobs Tonal Sunglasses, but instead of going with black - I chose brown honey. I was somewhat apprehensive about ordering sunglasses online without trying them on first, but since Shopbop offers free returns - I figured I had nothing to lose.
Turns out - they are perfect! Large enough to provide good coverage - but not so huge that they take over my face. They are also very lightweight, easy to wear all day. They arrived in a large protective case too (along with a cleaning-cloth) But, one minor thing that I really appreciate about this pair - no large, obnoxious logos on the sides! I don't like sunglasses with huge emblems on the sides (distracting!) ... there is a faint "Marc by Marc Jacobs" printed on the sides + faintly on the upper edge of one of the lenses ... but it is barely noticeable. (difficult to try to photograph, actually)
Something else I decided to order - an Indah Luz Pinch Bandeau. My sister had been telling me that she wanted a nude-tone bandeau to wear over strapless bras - especially when wearing a looser-fitting top. You can lean over and not be worried about things being seen. I tried it on too - very soft and comfortable! I believe there are only blue ones left, though.

  2. I like your finds; and I am SO all about a bandeau or even a gap body bra cami in the racerback. wear it under everything, and sometimes over a bra!
