Lindsey Vonn Delights in Lacoste Shades

30 Dec

Lindsey Vonn has certainly racked up the accolades in her career, most notably in her alpine downhill performance at the 2010 Winter Olympics where she captured the gold medal—the first American woman to do so. Lindsey has also won three consecutive World Cup championships (2008, 2009 and 2010) and the Super G, back-to-back.

Not only is she an impressive athlete, but Lindsey is also known for being a natural beauty and has been featured in top magazines, “Got Milk?” ads and plenty more.

Showing off a scrumptious green pair of Lacoste L614 shades by Marchon Eyewear, Lindsey looks like she’s preparing for a day off in the sun instead of training for the 2011 World Cup.

We can’t wait to see Lindsey and her teammates shred the competition and bring home more trophies!

For any fashionista who’s old fashioned at heart, here is your dream come true. Ogi Eyewear has a perfect line of Neo-Classical eyewear that uses classic shapes and concepts, but with an avant-garde twist.

The Seraphin collection channels vintage looks and reinterprets them into a fun and fabulous design that can be worn by any woman. Handcrafted with rich materials, these specs are sure to make heads turns. We suggest you peruse the new additions, and don’t be surprised if you find a frame that you just can’t live without.


Inspired by a famous explorer, the Marquette frame joins the Seraphin line as an expedition in women’s fashion. Presented in a sexy cat-eye, these specs feature intricate etching in Italian acetate to complement the meticulous metal embossing. The creamy neutrals are spot on for the upcoming spring season.

The Pleasant style is a delicious blend of unique detailing and historic charm. The distinctly shaped frame is encrusted with Austrian crystals, exuding sheer class and luxury without falling into the category of over embellished. The pop of color on the temples will definitely get you noticed.

Darnell Dockett

The Grinch wasn’t able to steal defensive lineman Darnell Dockett’s competitive spirit as he and his Arizona Cardinals teammates secured a 27-26 win over the Dallas Cowboys in the last five seconds of their Christmas Day game.  The Florida State alumnus—who recently signed a four year extension to his contract—aided in his team’s win with two sacks.

With one week left in the regular season, the Cardinals are hoping to keep up the momentum and end on a good note with a win against the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday at 4:15 pm EST. Both teams have a 5-10 record, so it’s sure to be a close game—don’t forget to tune in!

Dockett looks like a macho man in a white tank, diamond studs and Nike Vintage 74 shades. These modified pilot styled frames are sporty and trendy, with bright, contrasting colors and mirrored lenses.
