...and so the hunt continues

The weekend saw me experimenting with 2 more sunglass options. I'm not quite sure if they were hit or miss (I'm leaning more towards miss) but here's the evidence. You be the judge.

Article number 1: Saturday - Bricklane on a fruitless adventure to the very overcrowded and steaming hot Absolute Vintage, usually a pleasure but this week I just couldn't cope.


I give to you the £2 Primark oversized plastic numbers. I unfortunately felt like a bad version of the already bad Mrs Victoria 'you cant see my face for my glasses' Beckham. I'm giving them a solid 5 of 10. This surprisingly high average is due simply to the fact that the lens reflects a lovely shade of chocolate over all I see, I imagine this is how Willy of the Wonker Factory fame views his magical world of singing little people and sugar coated goodness. That's what dreams are made of.

Article 2: Desperate to shade the eyes from the scorching sun while blogging & researching at my local beer haunt (so very British), I trialled a ridiculously over priced pair of Chanel wrap arounds with garish mother of pearl CC's on the arms. A truly terrible move and almost WAGGY which we all know is my worst nightmare. I'm giving them a sound 3.5.....however teaming them with those lovely Jeager pearls could have just pushed them up to a clear 4.






.....and so my friends the search continues, when and where it will end we don't know. Daily I dream of summer eye wear utopia and a land where plastic and lens come together in perfect pupil protection harmony. When I finally reach this destination of hope I will no doubt inform you all of where to found this land of promise. Till then we will continue with this tedious trial and error approach. The pain, the pain....

I secretly enjoy looking like Posh. I know! I know- this is bad! But, I don't know, the oversized sunglasses just make me feel glamorous, even if I have my hair in a ratty bun.

You're selling those primark ones short, I think you're workin' 'em real good! FIERCE!

I can't stand cheap sunglasses, buto only because they are evil for your eyes (and I use also optical glasses, so you can imagine). Sometimes design is cool, but really, is not good for eyes!! Invest in a good sunglasses is a must!! hihi. I prefer the first ones on you;)

You should try Tom Ford - they have the biggish look, but not too big. I find Chanel a bit too chunky at the moment. Sad.

I really like the Primark pair and have been trying to find a white (or cream) framed pair of sunglasses for weeks.

Wish we had Primark here.

I like the Primark ones better than the Chanels. Go figure...
