AS EYE SEE IT

As you would all know by now, I am a huge eyewear fan. Since my eye sight seems to be holding up I am a fein for sunglasses so I thought it was about time I share some of my favourites that are always in my car and where to buy less expensive alternatives. 



MY ULTIMATE

After wearing Karen Walker frames for the last few years and trying out different styles I finally got this Harvest style and was instantly in love. Since putting them on my face I have hardly taken them off and are definitely my ultimate pair. I think it is their combination of thin metal sides and bridge with the oversized round tortoise frame that I loved in my other styles. Now these retail for just over the $300 mark so definitely not for everyone. If you are loving them though make sure to check ebay for them new with tags around $150. I also found a similar style called Paris in brand Oscar Wylee from $98. ps. You can get the Oscar Wylee Paris style with prescription too!






OVERSIZED
Now this style has been a long time favourite and was my first ever pair of KWs. I love them so much so that I bought the same style in a tortoise and limited edition gold (below) These are more of an oversized rounder style. Perfect when you want to hide / have no make up on and huge bags under your eyes. Again these will set you back around $300 mark again but I have also gone searching for some similar styles:





GET NOTICED
These are the definitely the most lavish eyewear I own, the gold detailing are actually Karen Walker's iconic little skulls and critters. I made these mine after stalking ebay for months and I am so glad I did. They don't get worn everyday but when they do they never go unnoticed. I have listed some other decorative / out there frames that are worth a browse.




ROUND / PILOT
These are the newest shades to my collection. They are the perfect type of "different" They are classic in their materials but slightly out there in their goggle like form. To me they are the perfect alternative to Aviators, still sporting that Pilot vibe. These are by eyewear geniuses Sunday Somewhere. 




REFLECTIVE 

I think this may be the only time white framed sunglasses will make it into my collection. Reflective lenses have been in for a while now but I am still loving the trend from these to reflective aviators. These shot above are from ROC Eyewear, a brand that is currently killing it in the eyewear arena. 



Due to my head being all over the place I completely forgot a pair when shooting. My last favourite style to wear is the modern cat eye style. I have listed below some of my 



As always these have been shot by Michael John Hughes

ps. is it bad that now all I want to do is buy some new eyewear after writing this post?
