Here's my never-fail recipe for the perfect day. Find one empty beach. Add a comfortable chair, a cold drink and a nice breeze. Stir in a vintage noir novel (anything by Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler will do) and let simmer in the shade for several hours. Serves one.
For me, there's nothing better than spending the day lost in a great book. And it helps even more when I can actually read the pages. That's why I never take a trip to the crime-filled streets of 1930s Los Angeles without my favorite reading glasses.
I ditched flimsy drugstore readers in search of more serious spectacles. What I found were these sturdy and stylish Golden Tortoise Readers. Lightweight, with spring hinges for added comfort, these are exactly the kind of glasses you want to take along on a vacation to pulp fiction paradise. And if you're the type who prefers to read with a partner, here's a stunning sidekick for your significant other: Tortoise Sunglass Readers. These tinted bifocal sunglasses deliver clearer vision and UVA/UVB protection with sophisticated sense of style. You get a lower lens area for reading, and an upper area with no correction so distance vision is not distorted. Each pair comes with a velvety, easy-open snap pouch for scratch-free storage.
