My favorite hangover-hiders

After makeup, sunglasses are my favorite thing to shop for. They can be tried on in less than 5 seconds, come in a bazillion styles, are usually stacked together within easy reach, and make for lots of corny fun. It's great to find fantastic $3 sunglasses at the nearest drugstore in Tortola because you realize you lost your RL ones at LaGuardia, and you need to get on the boat now. It's also great to try on dozens of bedazzled D&G pairs and standoffish Dior shield glasses, all to realize that the classic large, round rectangle shape in black suits you best.

So, here is a compilation of the best sunglasses I've seen so far this year, categorized by style and in a variety of prices. Enjoy!
