Ladies! It's time to start thinking about purchasing a new set of sunglasses. These are probably my favorite accesory (second only to shoes) because who doesn't look seriously GLAM in a pair of fabulous shades?

Plus, you can really go wild with sunglasses and try out cool, trendy shapes and bright colors. The important thing to remember is to try to pick out a pair that will compliment your face shape.

Luck for you, I've already done most of the work!
