Gucci Shades

As hard as I try, I can't seem to get over my love for the giant plastic framed shades. Everytime when I think I've found the perfect pair that would last me a lifetime, I find a new pair that is more perfect than the last. And the thing is, they're all basically huge shades with plastic frames!
So I am perfectly aware that this will probably not be the last time I utter this sentence, but I swear this time I've found the perfect giant plastic shades. Wandering aimlessly around the department store, I glanced over at the shades selection they just popped out from amongst the rows of oddly shaped new trendy shades that I doubt would look flattering on me. It was almost like in those cartoons when the character finally finds the item they've been looking for and the item just shines in the distant and music comes up and the world is perfect again. These Gucci shades are perfectly rounded and the nose support is just right that the bottom of the frames do not touch your cheeks (I have to admit, my current one does touch the cheek). And they look fabulous on. They are just brilliant in its simplicity and elegant shape. It comes in brown and black, but somehow I prefer the brown, thinking its more chic and not quite so dark. Plus, since I already have black plastic frames....brown plastic frames would be a variation. My current huge plastic framed shades are from Dior, and don't get me wrong, I still love it to bits. I especially love the Dior "D" on the side with the pretty flower detail on the edges. And it looks great. But I'm sure all of you will agree that they are very different from the Gucci pair......so it is a different kind of perfect. OR maybe the trend for huge plastic frames has evolved over seasons and I have not even noticed but just blindly followed to my liking. Wow, now even I am slightly confused with my logic. Whichever way, those Gucci are just soooo beautiful!
Incidentally, I would like to mention that I also tried on these pair from DVB, just because its from DVB and I wanted to see what they were like. The shape and design is actually quite nice. Only thing is, they are so black that I felt blind in it. I guess thats what celebs need for maximum coverage from the paparazzi?

Since i'm slightly obsessed with big sunglasses myself... i decided to comment.

love love LOVE the gucci ones, they would look stunning on and probably suit alot more faces than some of the others out there.

also love the dior ones.... but could never wear them ever... so i'm instantly inclined to ignore them...they are however... very pretty sunnies.

finally, love the last pair... more so than the first... but if they're too black then no thanks.

wearing ( or buying) a new pair of sunglasses in this time of year would be just stupid in here where i live. and I'm a bit jellous for that.

i totally feel you on this!

i always tell myself that the pair of over-sized shades will be the very last ones i'll get for a while -- i swear i've bought four in the past several months alone. but my fav designers are always rolling out a style that is much cuter than the last! and even though i try to control myself, the moment i put on the shades to try out and catch a glimpse of my reflection, then it is over -- i must have them!

so i definitely know what you're talking about. :)

I love buying big plastic sunglasses but I always seem to turn to my trusty brown pair that seem to fit my face perfectly so the others, though fun, are pretty much a waste of money.

Ugh...so over the gigantic bug-eyed sunglasses. Didn't these go out a few seasons ago? Much prefer a modern pair of aviators. Very sleek and cool without looking like you're trying too hard (an unfortunate side effect of some of the huge plastic framed ones).
Just my opinion of course.

I have the Dior pair however I feel I should branch out from the oversized sunglasses (which I am addicted to) and go for the aviators...with a leather jacket it's very rock chick.

My ex has a theory for those. The bigger the sunglasses, the uglier the face. :D

I love Burberry's new fall shades-- huge and stylish! I was so blown away I bought 2 pairs last month!

P.S. Anonymous - does your boyfriend forgo the big shades and just walk around with a bag over his head then?

My girlfriend is in love with Guccis. She owns several different pairs, which can put quite a dent in your finances as you might imagine. Anyway, I got her a pair last year for her birthday and saved a small fortune by buying online. You can check the online store out here for wide selection of Gucci Sunglasses. Look like they're having a holiday sale right now.

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
