I don’t know about you, but I have had more pairs of sunglasses than I think one person should probably own in their life. I lose them, I sit on them, I leave them on buses and in loos and in bottoms of bags stuffed at the back of my wardrobe… and the reason is this; I have never loved my sunglasses.
I’ve always bought fairly cheapy ones on the high street, which cost about £12.99. They are never great quality, so I don’t care for them like I would a pair of shoes… I am also never that sad when they’re gone.
The concept of buying an investment pair of sunglasses is something Ive toyed with over the years, but have never actually done, so I was thrilled when www.smartbuyglasses.co.uk got in touch and offered me the chance to review a pair from their beautiful (and extensive!) range.
I have never seen so many exceptionally beautiful pairs of sunglasses from so many brands on one website – Roberto Cavalli and Ray-Ban, Vera Wang and Versace, Diesel and Dolce & Gabbana… I made a cup of tea, popped on Ana Silvera and settled back on my sofa to spend a few luxurious hours (it was a Sunday – forgive me) choosing my ultimate sunnies.
I finally settled on these beautiful Miranda Oversized Soft Square Sunglasses, by Tom Ford, in the shiny rose gold colour and with brown gradient lenses.
I received them a couple of weeks ago and have loved how they transform me into sleek, put-together-not-in-any-way-frazzled-and-totally-on-top-of-her-work Poppy, no matter what I’m wearing, what my hair’s doing, (someone have a word with it please) or how I’m feeling.
They’re like magical sunglasses. AND, I am looking after them in a completely different way… they’re precious. (And they most certainly did not cost £12.99.)
I heart them.
And if I leave them on the Number 328, I will chase that bus until my legs fall off.
