Diva Shades - A mask by any other name.
I can't help but wonder what beautiful eyes my sunglasses wearing Diva has.
Sunglasses are our daily Venetian masks, hiding who we are, and flashing a little bit of who we want to be. We change them with our wardrobe as a fashion accessory. They project an aura of mystery and celebrity. But no matter what you call them, or how you use them, sunglasses put shades on the windows to our soul.
We may never see my Diva's eyes, but just imagine how beautiful they must be.
But I'm addicted to sunglasses. And I'm not the only one, and you know who you are!
