Find Of The Month - Fashion

Sunglasses are my major accessories' weakness and it's very hard to resist to so many temptations each collection. This Miu Miu's kind of retro old Hollywood glamour ones with a decadent elegance are so far the most beautiful pair of sunglasses I've ever purchased. I love their blue soap frames, the mirrored lenses when the sun hits the right way and the sophisticated look they provide. They'll probably be the find of the year!
