I’m packing like the last minute wild card that I am and the top of my “don’t you dare blooming forget me” list are my amazing new Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses from Sunglass Hut. Every morning for the past week I’ve been looking out of my window seeing if it was sunny enough to rock these bad boys to work and now I know, as I fly to Mauritius tonight on my honeymoon – these will make their first appearance.
Retro shaped and some might say ‘lavish’ gold leaf sunglasses are just the right amount of sparkle for me. I already have almost every up-to-date style of Ray-Bans and JD always steals them. When I was invited to the Sunglass Hut event at London Fashion Weekend I knew I was on a mission to find something new, something different and something the husband couldn’t steal.
After trying on an obsene number of frames from countless high-end brands I fell a little bit in love with the D&Gs. Inspired by the gold trimmings and lavish brocades of Sicilian tradition, these glasses are designed to celebrate the ultra-feminine. Embellished tiny gold fragments floating in a black frame, these may not be the most subtle shades I’ve ever owned but they sure as hell make me feel like a movie star.
