The Boys Of Summer

We’ve been away on a buying spree and enjoying the beautiful long, hot, summer.  Sunshine lightens the mood and makes us nostaligic for childhood summers; living outdoors and trips to the seaside.  We have got a little sentimental and bought some pretty cotton dresses, inspired by those our Mums wore back in the 1950s/1960s, as well as some really cool vintage accessories!  

For starters, inspired by Don Henley's evocative song "The Boys Of Summer", "You got your hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby", we've been searching for an original vintage pair of Wayfarers, the must-have accessory for the summer.

We were delighted to find these stylish ebony black Ray-Ban Wayfarer II sunglasses, with dark green tint, which were a family heirloom and in great condition for vintage.  If you want to stand out from the crowd this summer and look like a superstar, then come and visit our 
online Shop  where you can purchase a pair of these iconic sunglasses.

This famous iconic eyewear has been beloved by stars of stage, screen, music and fashion.  Think moody James Dean, sultry Marilyn Monroe, classy Audrey Hepburn, just some of the greatest 20th Century icons wearing their Wayfarers.

Also popular in the worlds of celebrity and fashion, worn by Anna Wintour and Victoria Beckham, Wayfarers are  both ultra cool and retro in the music business; as popularised by Michael Jackson, Madonna, Kelly Jones, Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan.
