What kind of sunglasses do you wear?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
And do you only wear them when it's sunny?

    OOh, I have nice red or dead prescription ones so I can carry on driving whenit's sunny, or see where I'm going when going down the street.

    I once had sunglasses that I bent to fit perfectly, but I lost them. Now I Have none. Sunglasses are hard to find, my nose is crooked and either one cheek bone or one ear is higher because they always slant to one side. Now I drive like :mad: (I looked in the rearview mirror once and though it was sunny, the squinting waasn't really happening, just looked cranky)

    Gosh sunglasses. Such a hassle considering my amazingly complex prescription....
    I chose a pair of Dior's last summer only to find that the lenses became distorted when put into them - tried 4 sets of lenses (at a ridiculous cost to my wonderful opticians!) but ended up swapping them for a brand new pair of Chanel's that were slightly smaller, so they worked!

    Am in love with them still.. they look like this, but all black

    they are not quite all the rage, but they have to be optical, so I can't ask for much.

    I had the occasional "Agent Smith" comparison.

    /eta: actually, come to think of it, I have a better, older picture of myself with them, from last summer.

    Ones from Primark that cost £2, at the rate I go through sunglasses there's no point in me investing in an expensive pair.

    :yes: I have bug eye black ones, chunky pink and brown ones and pink rimless with dimante (real of course :razz:). I'm sure my collection will have tripled before the summer is here :D

    I buy my from high street shops, I can't spend a lot on them, as I wear them often- and break them often, usually by leaving them on my car seat then sitting on them- as i use them for driving mainly :)

    I have aviators with blue gradient coloured lenses, something like this pic.

    None yet, but it's highly likely I'll buy them from Boots tomorrow haha, thanks to my lovely discount, and they're not too expensive atm.

    I tend to break sunglases though, same as I tend to break my real glasses!

    i also don't like spending lots of sunglasses because i usually bend them or they get ruined by sea water or sand or something!

    had black oakley minutes that i got in america and some cunt nicked them. i don't know where or when they were stolen, but i don't have them anymore :mad:

    do they actually protect your eyes at that price or are they just shaded lenses?

    and is primark an ethical company? £2! I wonder what wage the people who make them are getting.

    I dont wear them. I can never find a style that suits me and I dont really fancy having to pay for a presciption as my glasses cost enough as it is.

    I have a pair of YSL ones, and they're actually really nice, but only God knows where I've placed them!
    I usually buy high-street as I always forget to wear mine - really no point in spending a couple of hundred of quid qhen forgetting to wear the damn things!
    Though I did buy the coolest pair of gold-rimmed aviators with a slightly different frame than usually, from Urban Outfitters (and that's after their collection started going down the drain, so I'm even happier about it!), and I managed to wear them too quite a bit. So yeah, cheap and worn as well.

    I wish I could buy cheap sunglasses - I'd have millions of pairs of them! It's not fair!!! :p

    I have quite a slim face so most sunglasses from high street shops look ridiculous, especially all these oversized ones!

    I got a lovely pair of miu miu ones last year which I haven't broken yet, which is surprising. Also still have an armani pair from the year before but not sure if I like them anymore. I really coveted this dior pair last year with diamantes in the central bit but they were £180 which I can't really justify spending on something I'll probably lose.

    No same price, only difference is when im in England I can claim tax back. But i thought you'd know all luxury brands are priced the same all over the world (with very few exceptions).
