Throwing Shade

Photography by Debs

The indisputable must-have for summer...decent face furniture, aka shades.  If there's got to be one thing I'm seriously addicted to collecting, it's Sunglasses.  Guilty as charged but all for good reason (excuse) because a quality pair of sunnies will last you years and will be the cherry-on-top for all your ensembles.  You all know I love and champion the high street and that still stands, but one of my golden rules is to invest in those accessories; designer bags, shoes and sunglasses.  It's with the addition of a designer accessory that can really amp up a high street look.  The latest addition to the epic collection of Shades that takes up 3 drawers of my closet space are these Prada 09QS Sunglasses.  What I love about Prada Sunglasses is their range of unusual and unique frame shapes, meaning, even from afar another woman will know you have a touch of Prada resting on your face.  The 09QS are a hybrid of the sexy and feminine cat eye and the slightly more masculine aviator, which technically makes them the perfect sunglasses for me because they are my two go-to frame shapes.

What are your fave Shades and are you guilty of hoarding face furniture like me?

    Firstly-smashing outfit!! Sunglasses? I have winter, summer, fancy, sporty, chic, cheapies, you’ll never guess how much I paid for these,
    classic, trendy. Obsessed? A little. I even share a few pairs with my husband. Check out the mens section. Some great looks there too! Sunglasses are the quintessentiel accessory.

    I can’t invest multiple pairs because I already hate carrying sunglasses around but I did invest in at least one 🙂 Cute bag!

      haha, I can’t count the number of pairs I’ve dropped and smashed because they’ve been on my head or tucked in my shirt x

    I own a pair of Prada sunnies (the one with the little wave on the side) and I get so many compliments whenever I wear them! Love your pair though and that bag is GORGEOUS!

      They are such a great style, even when I’m casually dressed these still work. I just love the quality and feel of a decent pair of shades 🙂 x
