Rhinestone Shades or Cheap Sunglasses

1 Jan

Anyone watching the ball drop in Times Square yesterday probably saw some version of these glasses – a variation on a long standing tradition. The 200Xs were a boom time for novelty new year’s glasses, a boom we’ll not see again for a long time, at least not unless they can work some Kanye styled magic for 2011.

In fact, the teens may be the roughest patch the industry has seen since the mid-1970s*.

My suggestion? Invest in novelty hats.

* This is actually a lie, the industry wasn’t even around until the early ’90s. You can read more about it here, or at your local library.
