Barbie Shades


Roll Neck Jumper - Charity Shop
Quilted Faux Leather Skirt - H&M
Shoes - Topshop

I've wanted a pair of round sunglasses since last Spring.  Y'know, the classic vintage 70's ones.  Problem is, as cool and as rock n roll as they make everyone else look, I just resemble a bug with eyes too small for it's face - truth.  I haven't actually tried those massive ones yet, I'm sure they would be a better fit for my face shape, but these super reflective babies from Le Specs*, with the slight kitten shape are definitely a winner.

Le Specs stock some really radical sunglasses, with awesome shaped frames, including those massive round 70's ones I mentioned before.  I was so tempted by them, by sunglasses are very hit and miss with me and I know that the cat eye shape suits my awkward face shape, so I went with the Original Sin*.  And they are bright pink, how could I say no?

If you're after a new pair of shades and none of the Le Specs ones tickles ya fancy, Sunglasses Shop stocks loads and loads and loads of  designer sunglasses.  The Raybans have been taunting me, I've wanted a pair for ages now!

I literally cannot wait until it warms up, not only so I can walk around in bright pink sunglasses not looking like a weirdo, but also so my legs won't get frostbite every time I want to wear my fishnet knee highs.  I am loving them right now!
