Our Fav Olympians and Their Fav Shades

What are our celebrities wearing? We often ask. The answer to this question often determines our next course of action as far as fashion is concerned.

Today, our interest is drawn to the American Olympic athletes and their accessories. Athletics and eyewear accessories often go hand in hand. Exposed to the harmful rays of the sunlight and the glare from ice, they have to do whatever it takes to ensure that their eyes are protected and to blend in with the constantly changing fashions. Different athletes have different ways of making this happen;
