Collection: Sunglasses

I wouldn't say I'm collector of anything, I'm afraid you'll find no coin book or stamps over here but I do posses a certain amount of makeup and accessories that one could categorise into some sort of collections. One of which being sunglasses. My humble trio I feel cover the main varieties of shades to suit every fashion and face. 

We have the cat eye glasses- that give a touch of old Hollywood glamour and I just think are so pretty. I picked these up from River Island and took only these on my holiday last year with the girls. Top-knot, by the pool with these babies on my face, I was pleased with my pick of sunnies that summer. 

The wag-tastic oversized glasses are a popular pick that can look a little OTT but in fun way that I think anyone can wear and pull off, no matter their face shape. They are also handy to hide a multitude of sins as they practically cover your whole face! You can look ├╝ber glam with minimal effort.

My personal favourites are the classic glasses which are heavily 'inspired' by Ray-Ban. The shape of these are so flattering and are universal for men and women. In fact, I picked these up from Primark in the Men's section for a bargain £1 and I tend to wear these the most. The simplest shape and design, which often turns out to be the best for most things.

Side note- These are handy if you're a girl like me and have a boyfriend like mine.. I tend to carry two pairs of sunnies around with me, I'm a sucker for accessories, I need something in arms reach at all times, so if my Aaron has forgotten his glasses or the sunshine makes an impromptu appearance, I can whip out my spare pair for me and he can wear the Ray-Banesque pair and they look like his own. Savvy sunnies voila! 

What are your favourite sunglasses?
