Celebs hide behind them and, admittedly, so do I! Don't even ask me how many pairs of sunnies I have - enough to lend them out to my responsible BFFs and make room for the newest addition to the collection. I obsess, you obsess, let's optically obsess here.

On Our Radar: Penguin Shades

Posted By Fashion on Jun 18, 2007 at 5:46PM

Not new to the sunglasses scene, Penguin shades have lived under the radar but thanks to fans like Amy Winehouse and Brit bad girl Peaches Geldof, I suspect a boom is near. These vintage-inspired frames are fun and fabulous - and affordable to boot.

These oversized lovelies are currently on sale for $113, from $150. Be sure to check out their other styles ranging from bold Dirk Diggler-esque shapes for the boys and sexy-in-my-Cabrio rims for the girls.

Almost all of the latest sunglass trends - bug-eyes, aviators, Jackie-Os, chunky square - have been beaten to death. All except for one: the cat's-eye. This style is very old-school yet hip, and perfect for those with a small face. These Tom Ford Anouk Cat's-Eye Sunglasses, $300, are stunning (you may recall that I have them!) yet pricey. But fret not, because you can get this look for less.

Trend Alert: Bejeweled Wraparound Sunglasses

This Spring sure has been fun with everything razzle dazzling and biggie blinging. So, it's no surprise temple art has taken over sunglasses - even on a sporty shape like the wraparound. A great shape for oval faces, these bejeweled wraparound sunglasses take basking in the sun to another level. Starworthy yes, expensive yes, but when you wear a pair of these at least you can ditch the earrings!

I covet them. A reader wrote me inquiring about them - she covets them. These Tom Ford Anouk cat's eye sunglasses, $300, graced several January fashion mags sending women slavering for them.
