I have a thing for tortoise shell accessories. Tortoise shell glasses? I die. During one of my many, many interviews for my summer internship a middle aged business man was rocking a gorgeous pair of honey-colored tortoise shell glasses. They were incredible! They looked outstanding with his blue blazer and colorful printed tie and exuded a certain timeless air that said, “yes, I rock at my job.” Kudos to the man who embraces his preppy proclivities! Regardless of age or gender, a good pair of tortoise shell glasses looks good on just about anybody. If you’re on the look-out for a new pair, I totally recommend going tortoise. And if you’re not, what the SHELL! Get a pair anyway!
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
