Accessory: Ray-Ban Erika

There was once a time when I owned a pair of black Ray-Ban Wayfarers. I had wanted them forever, saved up a bit, and waited until my birthday to buy them. They were everything I had wanted them to be and more. Whether or not 1 in like, 6 people were wearing them as I wandered through the Mission, it didn't matter. They were still so cool to me. Unfortunately, it seems as though I wasn't cool enough for them (or something?). Before I knew it, Richard had adopted them — wearing them and snatching them on the sunniest of days... and of course he'd sometimes ask if I wanted to wear them, but I let him go to bask in the Ray-Ban glory.

After a while of trading the glasses back and forth, it became apparent that I either needed to buy him his own or by myself a new pair, so I headed off to the sunglass shop to see what I could do. I went in thinking I'd get him his own pair... that was until I saw these. With the ever so slightly cat-eyed rims propped upon my nose, I stood in front of the mirror and that was all it took. It made sense too; would I want to walk around hand in hand wearing the same glasses as Richard? No, not really. So I went with my gut. 

To me, these are like the Wayfarer's cuter and more feminine little sister. Beautiful brown gradient rims attached to a long sleek silver temples and brown temple tips. Less harsh than the all black original, but still in the same ballpark, style-wise. The quality is still incredibly good and I'm once again in possession of a pair of sunnies that are better than I expected. Overall, they just seem to make more sense to me and in the end I suppose this was all for the better...

Plus, Richard looks better in the Wayfarers anyway...


  1. The are SO ... wowza. It's like the girly Ray Ban and I love it! Maybe it's a good thing that he kept taking them away from you ;) My boyfriend and I have the same hat and sunglasses, LOL, so yeah it gets a little weird, but I love these! May have to trade mine out now xx

  2. I've actually been in the process of looking for a new pair of sunglasses too. I wanted to get some nice ones this time, and I guess I'm going to have to check out these ray bans! :)

  3. These are so cute!! I have the Wayfarers and sometimes think they're a bit too masculine for me... these are definitely a great slightly-girly alternative :)


  4. Love them, cateye rims are always flattering I think. I always want to get Raybans then always go woth a different brand, maybe I should go and look at all the styles.

    Lovely photos as well.
