shades are the new headphones

2013 was the year I learned to stop being embarrassed and start wearing sunglasses indoors on occasion. Why? Fluorescent light is gross, and strangers can sometimes be intrusive when you're not in the mood to chat, and polarized sunglasses like these ones from Oliver Peoples are the perfect solution to both problems. The polarization means that indoor light is still crisp; and the glasses magically and silently make the point to strangers that you're otherwise preoccupied.
