Durkl Sunglasses

7 Jun

My favorite restaurant gents, Nate, Nic and Jonathan invited me to the Bon Appetite book signing party at Sweetgreen on Friday night. Bon Appetite Editor-in-chief Barbara Fairchild was signing copies of her book.

Aside from the book signing the real headliner for me (since I cover fashion) were sunglasses that Nate had been raving about for the past couple of days. The Durkl sunglasses, $6, the name being a play on Urkl, Steve Urkl, gave me the giggles but became an instant hit at the party.

What are Durkl sunglasses? It’s like a slap bracelet…sort of…that unfolds and fits in place…with no handles…and looks like the Kanye West sunglasses with horizontal lines on them…and fits everyone…and I just love them…so yea!

After the Sweetgreen event, I took the Durkls for a spin at my friend Nadine’s Beer Pong tournament at Eighteenth and Red in Adams Morgan to raise money for her Woman of the Year candidacy for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Check out some of the DC United guys rocking the glasses. One size fits most.
