Kelly, our neighbor at Ha!, giving her new coveted cat-eye sunglasses a test run in last weekend’s stellar weather.

When you’ve got the coolest sun shades in Fremont and suddenly, its 85 degrees out… 
Kelly shines in this asymmetrical blue/tort sunglass style from Italy, helping maintain the funky vibe  of the neighborhood.

Creamy off-white can be a tricky color to pull off for most. Rachel is certainly the exception here- the color is a polished, yet edgy highlight to her “summery” features.  Plus, this unique and uplifting shape takes her style aesthetic to another level.  What a looker!
