House of Harlow 1960 Sasha Sunglasses in Tortoise
WHAT: House of Harlow 1960 Sasha Sunglasses in Tortoise
WHY: Nicole Richie is no sunglass novice. With more than 500 pairs in her own closet, this accessory aficionado knows what it takes to make a mean pair of sunnies. The gold temple chain with dangling tassle stays true to the boho styling we've come to love from House of Harlow 1960. Yet, the over-sized tortoise frames give the spectacles a classic air. The best of both worlds.

The satchel has options galore, from a retro striped and webbed strap to removable pockets for going slightly less tethered when a minimalist mood strikes.
