Killer Shades: Chanel Prestige Cat Eye

It was 60-something degrees here this past Saturday, which for November in New York City is nothing short of insane, but there was no complaining from my end! I got the above Chanel Prestige shades ($550 at Sunglass Hut), a few weeks ago and have been so madly in love with them that I’ve literally been wearing them intermittently around my apartment (luckily my live-in boyfriend and I are long past the stage of having any shame…). They’ve got just the right amount of flash, are totally original without being over-the-top or tacky, and I love the cat eye shape. My head is on the smaller side so few shades other than Ray-Ban aviators flatter me, but these — if I do say so myself! — look fantastic. I finally got to wear them out on Saturday on my post Black Friday Barneys shopping excursion and, of course, I didn’t take them off once I got into the store. In fact, one of the SAs on the seventh floor followed me around till I got off my phone because she “just had to know where those sunglasses are from!”

While the cat eye shape flatters my face shape the best, the new Chanel Prestige collection also has aviator and over-sized shapes that come with the classic chain and leather detailing of the iconic Chanel bag. Each styles comes in a variety of color combinations. Hello amazing, amazing holiday gift!

    I was just wondering if there are any pictures i can find of you wearing the sunglasses? As i have also been dying for these sunglasses for so long! However, i am not sure how they would look on, as i also have a small face!
    Thanks, Fiona xo
