The Perfect Attire for Every Occasion

Is there a difference between black-tie optional and semiformal? You bet your ass there is. Fancy Shmancy

  • Black tie: tuxedo
  • Black-tie optional: tuxedo or formal suit
  • Semiformal: formal suit or sports jacket with a tie and trousers


The Casual Side 

  • Business: formal suit or sports jacket with a tie and trousers
  • Business casual: trousers and a dress shirt
  • Casual: jeans and the type of shirt depend on the attendees.

Polarized Wood Sunglasses No. 2240


Found the shop locally through Etsy...Love the shop and the sunglasses! I got a pair for myself and my boyfriend. We love that they’re polarized and come in great styles to match our aesthetic..I got him the wood and black frames and they look great on him, I got the ray ban style with a gold frame and they compliment my skin and face shape perfectly. Will be purchasing again in the future I’m sure! The packaging was unique and beautiful as well! Very pleased!
