FASHION July 25 2016  Comment

OOPS! I did it again… I found yet another cool pair of sunnies and shamelessly gave in to my sunglasses addiction for the 100th time ;). This time I couldn’t resist a pair of round GANT sunglasses with a black metal frame and navy blue temple tips. Initially it wasn’t a pair of sunglasses but a frame for glasses that I turned into a pair of sunglasses at Specsavers. It looks like turning a pair of glasses into a pair of sunglasses is becoming one of my things ;). It’s a perfect way to customize a pair of sunglasses to your own taste and an additional benefit is that you won’t see many people wearing the same sunglasses.

When I walked into the Specsavers store I was lured to two different displays. One with GANT sunglasses and one with sunglasses from a brand I had not heard of before, containing some very cool (and affordable!) minimalist sunglasses. I forgot the name, but the shop owner told me that the brand was exclusively sold at Specsavers. After a long deliberation I picked my favourite and went for a round black metal frame from Fashion & Lifestyle brand GANT, in combination with green lenses and anti-reflection treatment (which improves your vision). What I like about GANT is its sporty heritage and casual-yet-smart look.

When I finished placing my order, I thought I had to wait for a week or two (which is normally the case). But after just a few days I already got a call that my sunglasses were ready to be picked up. Always nice to get your order sooner then expected!

Now, if you don’t mind. I’ll be outside, parading around looking ‘casual-yet-smart’ with my new sunnies on ;).
