I love fashion, I love pretty things but generally I don’t get overly excited about designer brands and usually I’m not willing to spend a small fortune on something that I can get for a 10th of the price in Primark. Yet last week when I was in a duty free shop in Birmingham International Airport, I let brand fever get the better of me and quickly purchased these gorgeous D and G sunglasses. What can I say, I’m a sucker for a polka dot.
When it comes to choosing a pair of glasses I have a specific list of qualities that I expect and I always match my glasses to these restrictions and this applies even more specifically if I’m considering a designer splurge. In the past on the odd occasion where I have opted for a designer item I’ve spent copious amounts of time carefully considering the item in question and never have I ever rushed to the till in a designer buying furore. Yet these glasses seem to have misted up my senses so to speak because all the lessons I’ve ever learnt went out of the window. I fell in love with these gorgeous specs the second that I held them in my hands and when I tried them on, well, I was smitten.
I love the dark, oversized tortoise shell pattern on the front because it adds a classic affect and style to their overall appearance, while the playful polka dot pattern on the inside keeps them modern and youthful. I’m all about protecting the eyes from the sun’s burning glare and so I always opt for wrap around glasses and for me these to the job to the T. They also fit snuggly, a factor that bodes well for me because I HATE glasses that slip down your nose.
I’m not sure why, I’m not in to the whole face shape lens shape debate, but big glasses have a habit of suiting me better than smaller one’s and I really like how these one’s look on me. I’m also not too clued up on sunglasses in relation to “trends” but these do the trick and tick every box.
Every so often you find something that makes you think “yeassss” and these glasses are likely to be my hit purchase of the season. I think it’s safe to say that I’m all set for the summer, so now it’s just a case of waiting for the British sun. I live in Wales so I could be waiting a while but at least I have some gorgeous sunglasses to keep me company.
Oh, did I mention that they are gorgeous?
What do you think?
