Black As Black


I have a confession to make... I've always had an unhealthy obsession with sun visors.  From the first plastic/terry towelling number my dear little granny bought me as a souvenir of the Gold Coast  to the  palm frond woven variety sold by little Hawaiian ladies on the roadside of the north shore.  So it didn't take much when I saw pictures of sun visor clad models on the runways recently for me to do some googling and find an updated version.  One big bonus of course is that it's kind of like a hat with built in sunglasses so if you're not entirely sure if the look is for you consider it as wearing two things for the price of one! Anyway enough about hat.. I mean that, hoping you guys have a wicked weekend.

That is so funny - my mom always made me wear a visor to protect my skin (in fact I am on vacation with her now in Spain and she made me wear hers today - forever the sacrificing mama), but now I love them! Such fun photos
