FASHION | London Retro & Ray-Ban

Despite wearing regular glasses throughout my teen years I've never been much of a sunglasses wearer, only buying emergency pairs from Primark to wear in the pool on holiday. However as I've recently started driving lessons I've found them to be pretty necessary if I want to avoid any crashes whilst it's sunny and luckily for me I've recently acquired two fabulous pairs from Sunglasses Shop.

First we have the Reggie's in Grey Tortoise by London Retro, who have loads of vintage inspired styles available (with old school London names like 'Nancy' and 'Dodger'...love!) I went for the Reggie's because I love the round shape and I think the colour and pattern are a bit less harsh than plain black. They're really sturdy, it's a bit hard to explain but instead of the arms just flapping about like most high street versions you have to close them yourself which feels weirdly satisfying...I'm hoping someone gets what I'm on about! And as you can see they came in a really nice case too, it's dark brown with an orange lining which is actually rather delicious.

Next up there's a classic pair of Ray-Ban 3016 Clubmaster's in Tortoise which I was actually really lucky enough to win in Helen from The Lovecats Inc giveaway (check out the rest of my prize here and while you're at it give her amazing blog a follow if you're not already. Beauty, a little lifestyle, baking recipes plus the best outfit posts, what more could you want?) Again, they came in a gorgeous case, are really well made and sit comfortably on the face. I think everyone needs a pair of Ray-Bans in their life as they're just absolute classics and with so many styles to choose from I don't think you can go wrong! 

So I'm definitely a sunglasses convert now, I can really see the appeal! As well being actually super useful in hiding out the sun's glare (and any dark circles!) I won't lie, I've totally been pretending to get my Alexa on in these. I do feel a little weird in them still because I'm just not used to wearing them but I love them! I feel an addiction coming on... 

Check out Sunglasses Shop for loads more styles in almost every brand you can think of (I'm dreaming of the Celine Audrey's....) Which pair do you like best?

  4. Love both of the sunglasses! I used to have so many pairs but I seem to have misplaced them all :P the only decent non highstreet ones I have are prescription but I can't wear them when I have my contacts in so tbh they're a bit useless haha xo

  12. I know how you feel - you never wear sunglasses and then you end up having many. It's happened the same with me with sunglasses, necklaces, bracelets... HAHAHA! So lucky you won the second pair in a giveaway!!! :-) I think they suit you amazingly. xxx

  14. Really rocking both these pairs Josie, you look divine girl! Alexa can eat her heart out cos she's met her match in you ;) I'm totally loving them both but I think Reggie's in Grey Tortoise have to be my favourite, they frame your face and just suit you to the max! So made up you won the give-away, I couldn't think of a more worthy winner! Ray-Bans suit you so well also, and I can't wait to see them pop up in a future OOTD. These also look like perfect transeasonal sunnies that will see you through AW and straight back into SS! <3
