The Cow’s Moo

Because cat’s pajamas are a little overrated.

My idea of enduring Olympic spirit 2012 is first and foremost, likening female swimmers’ upper bodies to Balmain shoulder pads. Following that, a look into the merchandising of various London-based web boutiques. The process isn’t very Olympic on surface level, not very much on an existential level either. Regardless, here’s what I learned while looking at London based boutique, Brown’s Fashion’s site: Thai women with Anna Wintour/Dora the Explorer hybrid haircuts are greater than us, and have really compelling names. Especially when spoken out loud, like Moo Piyasombatkul, for instance, enter her eponymous eye-wear brand: Moo.

Yes, it’s the cow’s moo.

They seem to specialize in reintroducing the stimulation fashion once depicted, now just sort of somewhat grazes. It’s kind of like that “fuck, why didn’t I think of that” moment when you step into the notion of accessorizing an accessory as simple as your sunglasses. Is there any good reason you haven’t yet added pearly worm like figures to your rims? I can’t get past the quirky accents. They’re reminiscent of the Spring McQueen shades but just a little less…frilly, girly, Midsummer, shaka laka. I am fairly keen on this pair, a set that ensures if you didn’t have a uni-brow, you do now.

More so, however on the pair photographed first. On the one hand, they’re a glimpse at what would be George Wipple’s eyebrows had he lived on the North Pole. On the other, seamen, again here, I’m not talking about boat pros. It’s kind of like John Lennon took care of a looming erection and the end of said erection resulted in a release that landed just above his shades. It dried, thus creating a very interesting and thought provoking…set of accoutrements to adorn his ubiquitous frames. Maybe, just maybe, it’s the Something About Mary fashion equivalent.

The sunglasses are far easier to digest in GBP formation. In dollars, they range from a cool $450 to $550 and while that’s certainly no stipend, there’s something to be said about investing in the flourishing creativity of a young artist. Still, they’d probably make for an interesting DIY endeavor, One I’d likely leave only to the ladies of Honestly, WTF.

Personally, I love the sunglasses. They’re original and interesting–very clearly made with love, good conversation starters at very least. But it’s tough to digest such a hefty price tag. The fact of the matter is, they’ll probably endure more use than our favorite high heeled shoes, see: Charlotte Olympia seashells, so why the cloudy restraint?

Common sense?

But what’s that?

Tell me what you think, I have to know. Lam ba da.

    I will admit that I pay high prices for sunnies, but around $500 is typically my limit if that really is reasonable.  I know I need my ass spanked but hey Tom Ford is forever calling my name! From a new designer though, no I will not pay that much for sunnies….

    I love the unibrow pair! They kind of emulate my grandpa’s natural brow structure, but hey, I’m all for that sort of thing… I’d love to see how they’d go over in my high school though!

    Nah, I’ll just get some basics at Claire’s boutique and hot glue some items from the bottom of my junk jewelry draw to them.

    remember when the dollar used to be worth something?  that was great.  and until that happens again i think i’d rather put my money where i won’t lose it in the form of seashell shoes instead of in quirky sunglasses i’ll inevitably leave in a cab.  not that they wouldn’t look great on a cabbie!

    Not sure I get these oober-expensive statement sunglasses.  Your description is entertaining and fun as always though!  :)  Only a select few can pull these off without looking a little …off.  I’ll stick with my classic Chanels, thankyouverymuch.  Keep up the good work, love your posts and your blog!!

    “My idea of enduring Olympic spirit 2012 is first and foremost, likening female swimmers’ upper bodies to Balmain shoulder pads.” LOL! #DEAD #RESURRECTEDI dig em, John Lennon jizz and all, especially the first pair although I usually go for the dark sunnies. They go a long way with the Leiber bags I inherited from my papa + the Prada bags I inherited from insomnia.

    I love the first pair but they are very expensive to me!!!^^

    They’re pretty cool, but a bit expensive. As you said though, they’d make a great DIY project!

    They are not amaaaaaaaaaaazing, maybe are fun and pretty but not TO-DIE-FOR, so for me is a to-not-buy-for. but it looks like a DIY project to try!

    Maybe it’s because of the way that we value sunglasses, almost in the sense that we take them for ranted and dont give them as much importance. Insted when it comes to shoes we are able to better understand the beauty of them, becasue its almost a traning that as women we have been put trough, therefore give them higher value regarding the price.
    My personal view on spending money in this kind of situation is “If i love it, why not?”
    I’d rather spend a bit more and everythime i seem my reflection somewhere with those sunglasses on fall in love always a bit more, than regret not being asble to feel like that.

    i have quite…impressively wild (yes… that’s a nice way of putting it) eyebrows, so these would inevitably make me look like i had 80s moustaches on my eyes, but i love them ever so!
