Sunglasses - sort me out, oh wise ones.

I had a pair of Vivienne Westwood sunglasses which died a horrible death. Like the ones on the picture but black and silver rather than brown and gold. I LOVED them. Unusual, dark enough to really work, wearable, no nose-bridge to get in my hair when I push them up (I know I'm not supposed to).

None on her website are fab enough to justify the price so what do you think? I want edgy but not wacky, unusual but not LOOK AT ME. I live in Canada so not quite London IYSWIM. The Westwood ones were right on the edge of OK for here. About $300 would be fine. Less would be finer.

Thanks in advance.

What do we think to what?

What sunglasses should I buy?

You'd have to try them on!

Is the silver element important? I usually wear sunglasses with gold bits on, but love the shape of your (sadly deceased) ones - have some Michael Kors not dissimilar, though possibly a bit more conservative. What about Miu Miu? Quite unusual, but cheaper than Prada, Vivienne Westwood etc.

I'm looking for ideas and yes, I would have to try them in (big head and weirdly high cheeks). I wear a lot of silver so gold isn't great. Miu Miu looks good when I Google. I quite like these Michael Kors.

Ooh yes, they are lovely! Could be very tempted by the red, but I don't actually need another pair of sunglasses so do report back if they look fab on!

Ray Ban's colorful & reflective sunglasses are all the rage atm.

Are these VW ones any good?

MrsTerryPratchett Mon 25-Aug-14 14:34:50

tethers! Those aren't the same ones but the shape of the front is exactly the same. They're very cheap. Do you think they're fake?

The Ray-Bans aren't my cup of tea. I wear sunglasses all year round and they shout SUMMER.

I can see the red Miu Mius with a Breton top and capris on a yacht in Cannes.

Yy to the gin palace red Miu Mius. I am enjoying this vicarious shopping...

Just buy them again!

Toofattorun Mon 25-Aug-14 15:38:24

Do you like these?

MrsTerryPratchett Mon 25-Aug-14 15:46:27

They are discontinued... Nooooooo. The second pair have nose posts, which I can't have.

They ARE nice. And I know the shape suits me. Hmmm.
