Strolling Shoreditch High Street, heading to a meeting or simply to enjoy another sunny day that London has been offering, you understand that as good as you look, you can’t reach the epitome of coolness unless you see yourself rocking a pair of… trendy sunglasses! Yes. It’s all about the sunglasses.
As a person with very sensitive eyes and no desire for wrinkles from squinting, sunglasses to me are an all year round MUST. However, try wearing eyewear in London on a cold day, or on the Underground, and you’ll get all the suspicious looks. As summer 2014 arrives in the grey Albion, the streets of London are suddenly filled with thousands of little mirrors. Yes. Here comes the season of sunglasses!
But what do you do when you only have 2 good pairs of sunglasses, from one of which you’ve lost (that’s lucky Doina). Going around the shops and spending hours looking through all their stock is just not me. No. So here is where you need a perfect online shopping destination, like Shades Originators, dedicated specifically to the most iconic eyewear.
I have discovered Shades Originators recently, and honestly talking, about half of their stock is on my wishlist now. Work Doina, work, seems like your budget will take the shape of eyewear this season. Karen Walker, Cutler and Gross, Illesteva, the trendy brands of the moment are all on there, as well as pictures of our favourite celebrities like Olivia Palermo, Nick Wooster, Keira Knightly, etc., wearing them. But my first pick and absolute favourites are these mirrored Cutler and Gross sunglasses. The unique bright gradient instantly brought all sorts of outfit ideas to my head, from total black looks, to summer denim shorts and crop tops. Definitely the best summer eyewear!
So for any of you who is struggling with the same sunglasses difficulties, well, you know where I shop my sunglasses…
