Little Luxuries- Zooey Deschanel for Oliver Peoples Sunglasses


Okay this is more of a big luxury than a little luxury (due to price), but I love my new Oliver Peoples Zooey sunglasses so much I had to share them with you! Oliver Peoples is a luxury sunglass line loved by fashionistas the world over. Their sunglass designs are quirky, classic and glamorous.

I have mostly been an 'aviator' girl my entire life. I love the aviator aesthetic (my favorites in the past have been by Michael Kors and Prada) but have been recently looking for a classic pair of wayfarers. So you can imagine my delight when I stumbled across these ultra chic Oliver Peoples sunglasses (that are very wayfarer-esque, non?) at my favorite sunglass shop, Ilori in Beverly Hills.

The salesgirl at Ilori enthusiastically told me that these were glasses designed for Oliver Peoples by indie actress Zooey Deschanel (who I loved in 500 Days of Summer, btw). She intrigued me further by explaining that a kiss mark appears when the lenses are fogged. I fogged the lens with my breath, saw the kiss mark, tried them on and fell in love! I love them because they are a glamorous take on the classic wayfarer- not too trendy and chic enough to become a classic.

Oliver Peoples Zooey sunglasses are $350 and can be purchased at www.oliverpeoples.com or at Ilori in Beverly Hills.

Oh, those are very chic! Do you have a wardrobe of sunglasses or just usually wear one or two trusty pairs? I have a large tortoiseshell Chanel pair that I wear all the time. My husband and I have been looking for some classic Persols, though, to expand our options (he wears RayBan aviators).

Those are spectacular (pun intended). My regular glasses that I wear in front of the computer all day are Paul Smith for Oliver Peoples, and I love them. http://paulsmith.oliverpeoples.com/spectacles/paice.html# (in Goldust). I hope you enjoy your new shades!!

Hi Jossephine- the kiss mark is a great selling point isn't it? It's cheeky and fun :)

Cashmere- I do not have a wardrobe of sunglasses (since they are so expensive now) and tend to wear just one pair for one year (very strange, I know), but I do keep all of my old pairs and occasionally will bring them out if it strikes me. What about you? Do you have a sunglass wardrobe? Your Chanels sound fab xo

Coastal Chicster- Thank you! I love your glasses- just checked them out. Oliver Peoples has such a great aesthetic. And they partner with the coolest people, don't they?

I totally love them! I tried them on at Oliver People's store on Sunset but they didn't fit. I am crushed...

I love everything about Zooey's style. Zooey+ Oliver's People's seems perfect.
