The 100: My Collection

As I recently posted The 100 by Nina Garcia is the ultimate fashionista's guide. I have been working on owning all of the pieces myself and have decided to share what I have found. I thought it would be appropriate to start with A.

A: Aviators
For the past year I have been searching for the perfect pair of aviators. Nina Garcia says to go with a classic look. Nothing that is too shiny or too trendy. Ray-Ban's are the obvious choice, but if they don't look good on you, don't get them (which is what happened to me). All of the ones I tried on were either too big, too droopy, too small, or too trendy. Of course I searched Nordstrom for a nice designer pair and found a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs aviators that were as close to perfect as I could get, but the price was just a little too steep. So I put off buying them for at least four months.

This past weekend I went to Nordstrom Rack not expecting to find anything. I wandered around checking out the trends and accessories which brought me to the sunglasses. Since I was still trying to find some more reasonably priced aviators I decided I'd just check. It was a miracle! I spotted a great pair of aviators that happened to be Marc by Marc Jacobs. They weren't exactly the same, but that was just fine because they fit even better than the ones at Nordstrom and were only $35. The answer was clear, I had to get them. After about a year of searching I finally found the ultimate pair of aviators.

If you find something you want but the price just doesn't match with what you can afford you can always check online too. Some great websites where you can compare prices are:
