In this day and age of constant new inventions and enhancements to daily life, there is a lot of competition for the most brilliant ideas. But this year, one item outdid all the rest as the most stunner lifestyle enhancement. Thanks to Mr. Ryan Grepper of Oregon and his kickstarter campaign, we now have THE COOLEST

This cooler system takes chillin’ outdoors to a whole new level. Whether a picnic in the park, Sunday BBQ, day out on the lake or underground dance party in the woods, the Coolest has everything you need:

- Built in blender and battery

- Bluetooth speaker

- Bottle opener

- Drink holders

- Multiple compartments

- Pack strap 

- Easy portability on wheels.

If you don’t believe us check out the kickstarter video and sign up to get your very own. The only accessory the Coolest needs is a complementary pair of Stunner Shades

Celebrity Stunner: Gwen Stefani

As New York Fashion Week comes to a close we want to give a shout out to a notorious fashionista, musician, and sunglass icon, the beautiful Gwen Stefani

Gwen has been a long time trend setter and fashionista dating back to her days as “That blond chick from No Doubt”. She had a powerful influence on teen fashion in the late 90’s, embodying for many the female rock style of short tee’s, baggy pants, sneakers, and red red lipstick. She made tom boy sexy and we all loved it and wanted to be her. 

In 2003 she decided to take advantage of her eye for fashion and started her own fashion line L.A.M.B an acronym for Love Angel Music Baby. While L.A.M.B has yet to come out with a line of shades, Gwen has the perfect face for stunnin’ and we want to pay tribute to her personal collection of sunglasses. 

From the classic “Spectator” look:

To the more attention grabbing “Transformers”

"Futureshocks" (should we rename these the Stefani’s?)

And “Nemos”: 

One thing is for sure, this woman always looks good and makes me wish I could pull off lipstick that well. 

Check out her latest line from NYFW 2014 and get inspired to stun!

Gearing up for NYC Fashion Week

NYC Fashion week kicks off today for a look at the top styles for Fall and Winter 2014. In anticipation of the week’s events we wanted to take a look back at some of the flyest lady stunners from Spring Fashion Week and the stunners we have in stock to get you ready for Fall. 

1. These Diane Von Furstenberg sunglasses completed this getup perfectly and could easily be replaced with our La Dolce Vita stunners for a similarly classy look. 

image

2. Tommy Hilfiger complemented one of his getups with these red reflective lens shades. Our Crystal Lights that come in a variety of color combinations would make a great substitute. 

image

3. Zero Conejo tied this interesting sweater piece together with a pair of sleek round blue framed shades which bear a striking resemblance to our very own NY Dolls.  

image

4. These flower sunnies by Kate Spade are a slightly lighter version of our very own ‘Funeral' stunner shades available in black and white color combinations. 

 image

5. Rag and Bone went with a striking round frame two tone shade highly reminiscent of our Keith Haring stunners. 

image

6. And finally, a shout out to Jeremy Scott for having his model rock these outrageous super stunners. We got nothin’ on ya. 

image

We are excited to get a look at this year’s NYC fall sunglass lineup. If you’re out there, send us pics of your favorite new shades and we’ll try to get them in our rotation. 

Happy Fashion Week ya’ll!

Getting Drunk at America’s Finest Chain Restaurants
Perhaps it’s my advancing age, my predilection for playing the sourpuss, or merely my growing disinterest in ceremony of any sort, but I’d rather eat in the shit end of a strip mall than get gussied up for a night on the town in the kind of genericly chic hotspots that now litter America’s cities. The lamentations of my colleagues as far afield as London over the insidious creeping dread of gentrification are now as familiar to journalism as Beyonce think-pieces, pointless aggregation of Daily Show clips, and Oxford commas.
We’ve bitched about gentrification’s florid fare and prentitious air of exclusion, but what’s the alternative? The aggressive gourmet flatulence of trendy urban neighborhoods makes me long for the affordable, bland, but comforting chain restaurants of my youth. I’m talking about the kind of place where the ads implore you to “let your hair down,” “unwind,” and “be family.” 

Those sentiments seem trite, but are actually what we crave the most, especially here in America. We want to belong, we want to be accepted, and we want to get drunk on cheap liquor. Those aren’t virtues anymore when fancy gastropubs charge $17 for a burger and $8 for a pint of beer. We are being robbed of the one thing that makes us American: our love of inexpensive, generic bullshit.

The first Denny’s in Manhattan opened last week, and features a $300 version of their popular Grand Slam meal that comes with a bottle of Dom Perignon. We can’t even pray at the altar of the classic American diner without being reminded of what we don’t have. Are well-heeled day traders in Manhattan going to pop in for bacon and eggs, with a side of champagne? What’s next, a Happy Meal that comes with an XBox? 

Reveling in popular culture, while also suckling at the sweet, sparkling teat of opulance is de rigueur these days. Restaurants sell gussied up versions of comfort food and charge through the nose for it. But what about just having normal comfort food? Can’t I just pleasure myself on top of a greasy plate of “grub” while knocking back a few discounted Happy Hour beverages? Thatbeautiful disaster exists solely in the safe, sanitized vortex of the suburban chain restaurant.

Soul Legend and O.G. Stunner, Mr. Bobby Womack

image

This August we would like to pay tribute to the late, great stunner, Mr. Bobby Womack. Collaborating with such big names as Sam Cook, Aretha Franklin, and Ray Charles, Womack has been at the center of soul music since the 1950’s. While Womack had his ups and downs on the music scene, he was consistent in his talent and his noteworthy stunner shades. 

This month’s StunMo Soundsystem music mix, StunWo, featured on mixcloud pays tribute to Bobby. Enjoy it in tribute to the man and Soul Stunner Legend with this look back at some of his best styles.

July Stunner of the Month Winner!!!

At Stunner of the Month we not only like to give Stunners to the winner of the Stunner of the Month contest but we also like to give them the Stunt’n attention that they so deserve.

Joshua Frisch won a decisive battle for this month’s Stunner of the Month title. We took the time to learn a little more about our stuntin’ winner…

First, tell us a little about yourself…
I’m a 25 year old who lives in Rochester, NY. I went to school for music education, but also enjoy sports and the outdoors, and I play bass in a sweet 90’s cover band!

How did you feel when you found out you won?

I was pretty ecstatic. I really wanted to win this contest and I was happy for all the support I got for my picture. 

How would you define a stunner?

I believe a stunner is someone who can make the best out of any situation and always have a good time no matter what. 

What is one of the most stunner things that has ever happened to you?

Three of my friends bought me a plane ticket for graduating college/ my birthday so I could go with them to Santa Monica for an ultimate frisbee beach tourney called Lei Out. It was my first time in California and I made some amazing friends and it’s beautiful there and great hanging out on the beach everyday. I’ll definitely be back to California, I loved it. 

How long have you been a member of Stunner of the Month?

Two years and 2 months and I don’t regret it one bit.

Why do you love Stunner of the Month?

I love the culture and atmosphere StunMo promotes. From the creativity of the stories of the sunglasses, the sunglasses themselves, and the fact that you cross-promote with musical artists, it’s amazing, and I really appreciate all of that. All of you at StunMo just promote a good time, which is what we are all here for.

What are your favorite pair of Stunners so far?

The Manuel Noriega’s, they are so Euro-Club I can’t handle it. But I love them.

Who do you plan on giving the 3 month gift subscription to?

I’m currently having a contest on my facebook to whoever supported me in winning, and i’ll pick someone at random. I figured I might as well give it to someone who helped me out.

Congratulations Joshua and Kepp Stuntin’!!

Stunner Don Sir Elton John

Being a Stunner doesn’t come naturally to all of us. For some it is an acquired taste or a fun experiment. Others come out of the womb and throw on their stunner shades.  Those who aren’t born with it often wonder what it means to be a stunner and how to achieve the ultimate level of stunt. To you I say, look no further than the Stunner Don Sir Elton John.  I mean, look at this man’s Closet of Stunners:

Not many can achieve an Elton John level of stunt but the man gives us something to aspire to. His unparalleled style and bold flavor make him ever worthy of our praise and admiration.

I had the pleasure of seeing Elton John perform live at Bonnaroo this year and the man has talent. Playing to a crowd of young Bonnaroovians who know his music more through contemporary films and karaoke sessions he brought funk, rock, and unparalleled style to the Bonnaroo stage. Rockin’ the keys and broadcasting an epic visual story through animations on the big screen there was no question that he was headlining that festival. 

So if you are looking for some inspiration to stunt for the final month of summer and into fall, look no further than our man, Sir Elton John. Here are some of his many epic looks to try out with your various levels of stunner shades:

EASY CHILL STUNT: Some Croquets or Crystal Lights with baseball hat tipped to one side, and sweatshirt under sweater vest (I’m sure your grandma will knit you one). 

image

GLAMMING ON THE MEZZANINE STUNT: Brown pin stripe suite with a collared shirt and some Nemos, Cuttle Fish, Bennies or Bamboozled’s to top it off (And of course the strategically placed cherub statue for full effect). 

image

FLY ASS PATRIOT STUNT: Whether you’re reping the red white and blue of the US or the UK this stripped suit with blue coat and USA or Summer of Love Stunners will have you geared out like the truest patriot.  

image

SUPER STUNTASTIC: Blinged out stunners, shoulder feathers and leather. Do it like the Don do. 

image

Have fun decking yourself out like our Stunner Don Sir Elton John and make sure to share you Stunner pics with us on Facebook or Instagram for a chance to win some free Stunners #auguststunner.
