If one thing’s for sure, it’s that every girl out there has at least one obsession. You know the kind – it’s the “you already own one but cannot hold back from purchasing a new version constantly” type of thing. For some girls it’s foundations and for others its a few (dozen) pairs of shoes. It will probably come as no surprise that I have more than one of those obsessions, the first being sunglasses. A few years back I had up to 15 pairs in various styles and sizes, however now my collection is a little more refined and I own a total of 6 pairs. Four on rotation, two never worn, and i’m not even counting the three scratched and hiding somewhere in my car.
For today, I thought I’d keep this geared towards my current sunnie loves rather than the lurkers in the dashboard compartment of my car, the first ones being my beloved RayBan Wayfarer knock offs. The first pair were from a random thrift shop in Brighton and were most definitely a surprise budget buy – less than £10 – thank you please. They also come with a UV filter which is amazing for the price. The next pair kicked off the love of vintage-esk RayBans and were a naughty payday purchase from ASOS (link here). I love these so much I have to buy a pair every time I see them – I’m one for scratching/losing sunglasses as well as collecting…
The heart shaped aviators were a spontaneous purchase from Urban Outfitters last year. Yes, they look seriously disco, but are incredibly cute with an all black outfit (similar here). The final pair are another £12 ASOS purchase, and they girly up a plain or slightly androgynous look perfectly. They have 0 benefits for your eyes but go just look so damn cute (similar here).
So my last purchase was back in May and after spotting the perfect D&G pair at the airport a few months back, I’m sitting firmly on my hands until I can take my next trip to duty free….
