Want to change a look? Keep the pricey 'it bag' ...swap out the eyeglasses…prescriptions, sunglasses…IMO the accessory to be collected…like watches or bling. Except face framers can really alter a persons persona--- maybe even more so then accessories from the neck down.

A Spring 2014 preview at Viva International: highlights...


From Guess…retro feminine shapes (sunglasses in particular)---with subtle metal accents, exotic tortoise color palette, and iridescent mirrored lenses.
