Mullen Monday: I wear my sunglasses at night edition


Keeping with my theme of buying clothing and accessories similar to rock stars I’m in love with, last summer I bought these sassy shades in Dublin:

I know – who goes to Ireland and buys sunglasses?!? But I saw them in the lovely and classy Clery’s and had to get them. Then I got home and a few weeks later saw U2’s Magnificent video and realized I’d bought Larry’s glasses! Or a reasonable (and I’m sure FAR cheaper) copy.

Clearly looking at this man for over 25 years I have things about him embedded in my subconscious!

Of course I call them my “rock star shades” 🙂

  1. how will i recognize you again?????

  2. Oh hell yes with that second photo! Shades, shirt half buttoned, death stare-my favorite Larry look!

    I think the fact that you bought them in Ireland makes them even more authentic-even though I think Larry went all diva and got his initials engraved on his or something!

    And we should all just buy clothes based on our favorite rockers anyway. Why have plain clothes when you can have Larry/Bono sunglasses, Candy Apple Red/Bones dresses, Purple Zebra in ANYTHING!!!
