I've spent a long time trying to figure out what type of sunglasses suits me the most, and although I wish Ray Ban Wayfarers were the ones, they are just not. The most comfortable I feel when I'm wearing aviators. I do admit that I look like a flippin' fly, but hey - they're aviators, right? Now I know what type I'm goin' for, I really thought that I'll just pop into Primarni & pick up the first pair of aviators I see (since the pair above is cracked that you can't see the world around when wearing them, urgh). That was until I watched this thing on telly about how wearing crappy sunglasses can cost you your sight - you'll say it's an obvious thing but it doesn't hit you hard until you see an eyeball with a hole burnt into it! *sun flare cringe* Apparently you should be wearing sunglasses that absorb 100% of UV rays & majority of HEV rays. God knows what that means, but man, I will be careful enough to check whether my new pair of sunnies have that! You know when you see something so horrible & bizarre that it seems to have burnt into your memory forever? That's the burnt eyeball. How ironical, innit.
Since that show I have not only been pretty much constantly thinking about burnt eyeballs, but also took a look at some real sunglasses. On the weekend I've got a trip planned to the Bull Ring & hopefully I'll spot some cool aviators there (I love the colourful ones above! Especially the light turquoise & purple ones *dribblez*), but for now I've been checking the Red Hot Sunglasses website. They actually have quite a wide range of sunglasses - from Ray Ban aviator sunglasses to Ray Ban Clubmasters. I'm actually thinking that I might try some on in a shop but then sneakily get them for cheaper online! *a serious light bulb moment*
Where do you buy your sunglasses?
