Under normal circumstances, I'd probably shy away from glasses like this. Beautiful as they are, their aquamarine pop best suits the braver soul, and while I've always loved cat-eye frames, I'd no doubt plump for a safe, and retrospectively dull colour.
Send them beautifully wrapped in the post however, and I'm sure to give them a go.
I won these in Vicki's giveaway as I mentioned in my latest weekly roundup and my heart fluttered excitedly as soon as I saw them.
And then? Then I realised just how retro this style was, how difficult they'd be to pull off, and how, defeated, I'd probably end up keeping them safely tucked inside my sunglasses drawer [the result of a dangerous shade habit...I'm almost ashamed...almost].
Well stuff that.
I might not be ready to brave to wide-brimmed hat here just yet, but a pair of perfectly retro, wonderfully summery shades? Why not.
Now just to find the perfect classic convertible...
