I have a love hate with branded sunglasses. I love them… they hate me. I am accident prone so the designer, high end sunglasses I have bought over the years have been snapped, scratched, lost or snapped within one summer season. I have given up buying them after my last Ray Bans met an untimely end under the front wheel of an Impreza (don’t ask!)
This summer I have picked up a few £1 pairs from Primark but I didn’t really feel any of them but thought I’d perservere seeing as I’m only going on 1 summer holiday this year ( won’t need them for the other holidays).
While on a shopping hunt, the day after the armageddon floods in Newcastle, I found a lot of highstreet stores had started to reduce their sunglasses! These gorgeous Patrick Cox glasses jumped out at me instantly. In a wayfarer style, but obviously not a copy, the brown lenses and tortoise shell frames flatter my face shape and colouring. I love the unusual fleur de lys on the front of the frames!
Nice and wide and deep to give great all round protection to the eyes.
They were originally £96 in store but I got them at a great bargain price so I couldn’t say no!
