Vintage Shades

By Sarah Redman

The Sarah’s Style blog picked up a few gem’s at the recent vintage fair in Bournemouth.

One of my favorites, my retro style shades! Two for £15 – Bargain.

Seen above as a wall of sunglasses, by the time I got to it most of the best ones were already gone!

However, I still managed to bag two pairs – one for when i’m feeling a little ‘vintagey’ and the second for when I’m feeling a little more quirky!

These are my ‘everyday’ sunnies, with a hint of tortoise shell and the gold detailing across the bridge of the nose and over the top of the eyes. This pair are more conservative and work well for any occasion – especially if you are already  rocking a variety of bright colours in your outfit.

The gold detailing gives a little edge to the otherwise not dissimilar pair to those found on the high street.

This pair really caught my eye. The bright purple, is eye catching, whilst the faded colour balances out the harsh frames.

The detailing on the arms of these shades mimics a very popular design i’m sure you’ll have seen. However, these are total fake (obviously) and for once, I agree with the fakery as the swirl design has been used as inspiration for this particular pair, whilst still being UV safe and CE approved!

All in all, i can’t wait for the sun – because I’m not sure I can pull off sunglasses and snow. Shame…
