It's all about the Sunnies...

I have always loved Rayban Sunnies, particularly the original wayfarers. Yeah, I know that they are particularly popular, 'trendy' and insanely replicated on every street corner but it's a shape that I think suits almost everybody and pretty much timeless too.
Original Raybans.
They have always been a familiar brand as my dad has always owned the Rayban Aviators. Ever since I was young, I thought they looked like the coolest things ever and in the eyes of a child they made him seem even more of a Superdad! Especially after watching things like Top Gun.

Everyone has their own unique style that they go for, check out these lovely ladies in their choice of shades!

Mine and Hailey's Sunglasses
The wayfarer style is probably the most copied style ever with knock-offs found at every market, no matter where in the world you are. Hailey found a pair in Vietnam which are pretty much identical to the real thing. Speaking of Raybans, at a recent press event, Next were ever so kind to gift me these Clubmaster look-a-like sunglasses and silk scarf. I am totally in love with the floral print and it's retro vibes.

My My mum reckons they look like children's glasses but I guess she hasn't seen me wear the heart shaped ones from H&M recently! Between my sister and I, we own sooo many pairs of sunglasses, are you guys like us and have an ever growing collection?

  1. no sunnies for me. i have one olive green wayfarer look alike pair, but i never wear them because i have never been able to wear contacts and i just can't see with out my glasses so i cant really use sunnies :( oh well! maybe one day i will learn how to wear contact lenses.

  5. My mum bought a pair of rayban wayfarers in the 80's but they are teeny tiny! they're so small and it is so strange! (maybe people had pin heads in the 80s! ho ho!) Well, i'm itching to get my hands on a classic pair. But i'm blind as a bat and i hate wearing contacts so wearing sunnies is always an issue. I've been meaning to ask the magical optical peeps how much special lenses are! Oh, how i envy those with 20/20 vision. x

  6. you look so cute in those floral clubmasters! I agree, wayfarers suit most faces well, and I think clubmasters do too. I wouldn't say I have an ever growing collection, in fact all my sunglasses (4) were gifts so I guess I don't really care about them. In fact I'd say I only wear them while traveling, because I feel a little weird wearing sunnies just for my short bus ride to/from school XD

  7. My favourite sunglasses shape is definitely cat eye or big Jackie O styles, they seem to suit my face the best but I really should experiment more!

  8. Aww! The Next sunnies! I thought I wouldn't like them, but I totally love them! I tend to stick with aviators, mostly, I think that they are the one style that seems to look good on everyone.

  9. Ooo they're so cute, I actually don't have that many pairs of sunnies but I do have 2 pairs of Chanel ones so I think that makes up for it!

    My other pairs are bat shaped and heart shaped, I always buy a cheap pair to wear before I go on holiday because I know I'll probably lose them in some bizarre way like them being stolen by monkeys or falling into a pond of 1000 frogs... yeah I know I think that's another reason why I don't have as many pairs as I should LOL!

  10. I think the only pair of sunglasses I own are a pair of heart shaped ones! I really should buy some for driving in but I never really use them.

  17. the last pair is so quirky and fun to wear! I am dying for a pair of Ray Ban Jackie O's but I can't find them anywhere since I saw them at the Haneda airport :(

    My current favorite is my Rayban aviators. Timeless.

  20. I love Ray Bans. They fit so well on everyone. And Aviators are my favourite style to wear. They always look cool.

    Love how you wore the Next ones! They actually really suit you.

  21. I can't wait to get my RayBans from Mister Spex, so easy to wear and perfect for sumerrr! xx

  22. I love those floral sunglasses. I don't own many pairs as I lose them quite easily but would love to get some more

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love sunglasses but so many of them make me look like a tool. I wear my mum's Rayban and a huge pair of black Chloe shades that I got as a gift. I wish others ones would look good but I end up looking like a knob. Pah. No fair.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love your flowery pair! Since getting contact lenses I can now buy more sunglasses without having to pay for prescription lenses so my collection is definitely growing. Not quite as impressive as yours but I'm working on it :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. The wayfarer style is undeniably timeless and I think it's the most versatile shape - it fits seamlessly with most styles of dress. However, for me, it's all about the ridiculous owl glasses. Jackie O style :)

    I love your collection and I look forward to seeing your sister making an appearance on the blog :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've got a few pairs of sunnies - what I could do with now is a cool case for them. They all get a bit battered in my giant handbag! xx

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have one pair... and then I break them... then forget I need sunglasses for ages... then get another pair. I kind of need to rectify this vicious cycle!

    ReplyDelete
  28. what a cool post, winnie! i don't think they're childish, and i have heart shaped ones too :) i always mean to buy proper sunglasses, and end up with topshop..xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. The heart-shaped ones from H and M are too cute and you look really great in the floral ones!

    ReplyDelete
  30. A floral print is a nice fresh touch!

  31. the flowerrrrr ones!!!!!!!!!!xx

  32. I love the wayfarer style and I think those black Raybans will always be my favourite's, they're so classic and timeless. At the moment I only have two pairs of sunglasses, but at one time I had several pairs! You can never have too many :D And thanks for the blog comment, the wildflowers were lovely. xxx

    ReplyDelete
  33. My favourite sunglasses are the wayfarer, though I don't own any original pair, yet ;) I also have a heart shaped red pair that I got from Barcelona and a grey Wayfarer knockoff pair from mango that I love.
    I really like your clubmasters lookalikes too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I never wear sunglasses, just because I'm blind without my glasses. Even with prescription lenses, I'd have to change to regular glasses when I got indoors. Hassle, hassle, hassle.

    But I'm really liking the Oliver Peoples x Takahiro Miyashita frames, and they come with the flip down lenses so I don't have to change back and forth!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I also have a growing collection of sunnies :) And from time to time, I wear my boyfriend's aviators haha.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'd LOVE a pair of real Raybans, but I'm having to settle for some fakes for now! Yours are lovely. x

    ReplyDelete
  37. I adore your floral ones! I have quite the collection myself, pity the Irish weather usually doesn't favour sunnies...x

    ReplyDelete
  38. omg i am craving shades right now! Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I really don't have a lot of shades, but I agree that I love the shape of Ray-Bans. They really work on anybody!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wayfarers are great. I always wear heart-shaped glasses.

  43. Love this post! Especially the part about your dad wearing Ray-ban aviators! My dad has always worn them too and I thought it was the coolest thing ever when I finally got a pair... gold with the green tinted lenses. Still one of my favourite pairs. xx
