Aviator Sunglasses, Almost Famous Style

Shaggy faux fur coat: Ebay - Pink Floyd band T: H&M - boots: Forever21 - denim boyfriend shorts: vintage Levi's - hoodie: Ebay - aviator sunglasses: Vogue via sunglassesshop.com

It might look sunny, but it was actually disappointingly cold outside. So I just popped on one of my favourite faux fur coats and ended up with this sort of casual take on Almost Famous rock star style. Which coincidentally looked really cool with my new shades, a pair of grey aviator sunglasses

I remember buying my first pair of aviators at H&M, back when I was about 14. They had blue glasses and they were oversized. Also, they looked absolutely dreadful on me. Since then, I've tried on aviators from time to time but they always give me a droopy face, even though I like them a lot on other people. Something about the shape of the glasses pulling down the perkiness of my face, rather than giving it a laid back edge like they do on other people. UGH!

However, when I got the chance to pick out a pair of sunglasses from sunglassesshop.com, this particular pair of aviators caught my eye: NOT too droopy, unlike this pair that would look awful on my face, for example. I also contemplated another pair of Oakley sunglasses because of those rad mirrored lenses, but since I basically have every model of sunglasses except for aviators, the choice was an easy one. YEAY! I immediately popped them on to catch some sunshine after work (when it was still warm :().

So! You into aviators, or do you suffer from DFS (droopy face syndrome) like me?


  1. Supah cool! Yeti from da hood. Leuke hoodie ook :)
    Bril staat u goed. Aviator model zou iedereen moeten staan, maar lijkt me echt onmogelijk, er zijn er zo veel verschillende.


  2. ja is idd zever, staat totaal niet bij iedereen al is het maar omdat het niet bij iedereen's stijl past.

  3. Leuke foto's en mooie zonnebril! Ik wil echt zo'n oakley bril!


  4. Die laatste foto is keimooi met de zonnebril en uw gekrulde haar!

  5. I've never really gone for the aviators because I have fairly pronounced cheeks and so when I wear them if i smile they get pushed up weirdly. But these ones look awesome on you! Also, you have incredible legs. I am highly jealous.

  6. De kleur van je trui past echt super bij je haar! :)
    Nice glasses

  7. Do you prefer wearing band T's of bands you actually listen to, or do you just not really care?

  8. I don't think I own any band t's of bands I don't love in some way or another. I mostly have shirts of the who,the beatles, pink floyd and gaga, acts I'm all crazy about. And then I have shirts of the doors and the sex pistols, whom I think are very cool bands and I know a lot of their songs, but I don't love them as much as the first ones I mentioned.

    But I'm not one of those people who basically starts fuming when they see someone wearing a Rolling Stones T even though they don't look like real fans or whatever.

  9. Hééé ik heb dat ook, nu ik er bij nadenk! Nog nooit erin geslaagd aviators te kopen, ondanks vele pasbeurten :(

  10. I love your outfit……!!!!! so stylish…..love the sheer tights especially, with the shorts and the great top... love Pink Floyd..... you have such a lovely smile....and those eyes!!!!
    Love your look……
    You’re so chic! So pretty…and you have such a great sense of style.
    I adore your hair that way too…I’ve always worn my hair long…
    You match perfectly…everything you wear…… you certainly make a super statement…..

    I grew up in tights, being in ballet for 13 years. In fact, mom raised me rather androgynously, so I also wore tights under big sweaters and hip length tunics and such around the house growing up. Your lovely look reminds me of all those days….epsecially when the delivery man would come and I’d meet him at the door and he’s refer to me as Miss……
    Oh, by the way, I’m a guy…and I love fashion as much as I love dance.
    I traveled in Europe this past fall,
    It looks like you have the same affinity for tights as I have…..

    I’ve been raving to my new friends about how much I love the tights/shorts look, so they encouraged me to try it myself…
    and I have in a big way,….. denim cutoffs, high waisted shorts, even a romper…….
    I will following your blog religiously….. thanks for sharing your lovely taste and your beauty
