I’m – as most people know – one of those people who does the school run in RayBans whatever the weather. I’m big on lack of eye contact before 9am. I don’t wear glasses for reading but I’m fairly fastidious about different pairs of shades for driving, running and creating an air of haughtiness at the school gates.
And all of this is before I start rotating pairs to avoid panda eyes.
I was asked to review a pair of sunglasses from GlassesShop.com (who make prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses with a fashion edge as well as regular polarised shades).
I chose the Amanda design, which comes in tortoiseshell (my choice) or black because a) I wanted to try out a really wide cat eye shape on my face and b) the name Amanda makes me think of the badass chick on Revenge.
First thing I noticed was they are SUPER LIGHT. I thought my trusty Raybans Aviators were barely there, but these are several grams lighter. So they are really comfy and great for driving.
I loved the shape too – they are bigger than the website picture implies (very Dita von Teese) and really flattering (translation: they hide all your eye bags yet make you look like you’ve thought about your outfit.)
They’re about a quarter of the price of Raybans; so a good option to stock up on if your pesky offspring keep ‘borrowing’ (ie breaking) your more expensive ones… I’m coveting the super girlie Gwendolyn pink shades too… (as I said: I’m an addict!)
The Amanda Cat Eye Shades retail at $34.95 –order eyeglasses online here.
