I never splurge on
Truthfully, it was the unbearable heat and my upcoming business/vacation trips that propelled me to actually go find something I'd like, something of better quality and longer duration. It was no incident that a colleague just came home from Canada and was selling some items she picked up from there. So when I saw these, I just couldn't resist, despite the hefty price tag that came along with it:
The lenses are actually purple-ish in person. I love that fact as I only had black and brown shades in the past and truthfully, I'm a huge sucker for anything with a gradient. I still would have preferred Jackie O.-style glasses but these are just as gorgeous when I tried them on so yes, hello there, MJ 018/S. We are gonna be in a long, sunny ride through the summer on this side of the globe. I can't wait.
Besides, you never really know when you need to have "anti-paparazzi" shades [to borrow Jamilla Camel's term]. That is just about the perfect excuse, JC! I'm just glad I now have one.
What about you? What's your take on designer eyewear?
