Because deep, deep down we all want to be Tom Cruise.

Okay, so I know I'm supposed to despise knock-offs and fakes. And I do! Well, to an extent.
Of course I hate sweat shops, theft, pollution, and poor quality! I passionately hate all of those things!
Still, have to admit a fondness for faux-bans (my name for fake ray-ban wayfarers) since my best friend started rocking a pair of green ones from Forever 21. Before I thought they were a little cliched and annoying...the kind of thing pretentious hipster types wear. Plus, I would never pay $120 for a piece of colored plastic when I can get the same style and eye protection from a $10 version at the mall. That's a lie. I totally would if I could. Anyway lately ever since that day at the beach I've been craving a pale pink pair because my best friend is my style icon. She's amazing. 
At the moment, I can't even afford the $10 Fred Flare version, which is pathetic. 
Then again, it could be a good thing, since Wayfarers are so trendy everyone and their kid is getting a pair of multi-colored ones from Urban Outfitters

No. Damn it. Pink sunglasses are always going to be lovely.

Remember when those people showed up at my apartment with matching colored sunglasses and headbands?

They are so not invited to my new apartment.

Also, I totally forgot about fred flare! Thank you ever so much for the reminder!

OOO I hated those kids.
They did not look cute in faux-bans.
Angela, however, totally does.
