Eyeglasses Cases and Sunglasses
Tory Burch Round Oversized Sunglasses
Obsession? You betcha! We can’t get enough of Tory’s newest fashion endeavor: sunglasses. Who couldn’t help but go crazy for these statement-making frames with linked temple design?
Big Buddha Santorini Tote
This tote offers a just-right dose of flash―think bling, not blinding. It’s the classic straw beach tote with an unexpected sparkle. We’ll take one… in every color.
Elizabeth Carlock Circle Chandelier Earrings
Nothing says “I adore the beach” quite like mother of pearl and aquamarine earrings. Give a little nod to the shore this holiday season with sea-colored baubles. Plus, a portion of proceeds goes to charity. We love a gift that keeps on giving.
Lulu Lame Enthralling Eyelet Cover-Up
For those of you who couldn’t bear the thought of going a whole winter without a trip to the beach, slip a note to Santa for this eye-popping cover-up. Throw a tank top under it and wear it with jeans when you’re not strolling along the shore.
Amedo Canfora Lona Sandal
The word “sandal” does not do these babies justice. “Jewelry for your feet” is more like it. You get what you pay for with these handmade Italian beauties, straight from the island of Capri.
