Those are my beloved batwing sunglasses, and they were a custom design, based off a pair of antique glasses we had found. They were an anniversary/birthday present from the RealHusband, and the are FABULOUS. The only reason I don’t wear them as often as I used to is because I wear glasses instead of contacts these days, and the batwing sunglasses don’t entirely cover my daily glasses.
(Yes, I am thinking of trying contact lenses again, just so I can wear those sunglasses.)
