You always remember your first: Sleek, mysterious cat-eye sunglasses as shiny black as patent leather. Mom picked them, probably to match the pair she wore, always accessorized with a headscarf just like Princess Grace's. The first pair we chose for ourselves was tortoise shell, smart but sexy. We're embarrassed to admit we had a rhinestone-encrusted version in the '80s. Cateyes never really leapt off the fashion stage after transforming the world of sunshades in the '50s. They turn up from time to time — catlike, indeed — to win our hearts all over again. Lafont Paris specializes in some of our favorite eye candy. The Porquerolles line, inspired by the beach in the French Riviera, includes these summery sunnies in a transparent blue frame with subtle accents of black dots and lime-green stripes. Channel your inner French ingenue and just say, "Oui." $399, Eyes Nouveau, 3000 S. Hulen St., Fort Worth; 817-738-2027; Southlake Town Square, 1247 Main St.; 817-481-2070; eyesnouveau.com.
