Can you spot the bit of yarn near my collar, seriously it gets everywhere!

Sunglasses can hide a multitude of sins.  When you've been knitting solidly every day since Easter, the bags under the eyes tend to come out in full force and don't seem to want to leave for the forseeable future.  Luckily Mister Spex offered to send me a new pair of sunglasses of my choice and with some careful help cajoling from my mother, I went for the Tom Ford Raquel pair.  It's not normally a style I would be able to afford, especially since I'm prone to breaking my cheapie sunglasses by stepping on them or just leaving them rattling around in my bag, but I'm determined to take good care of these.   They have a proper matching case for goodness sake!  I'm a major fan of 70s style sunglasses, which I love wearing regardless of trends and this pair is no exception.  The subtle logo, cut out detail and contrast gold on the arms make them super special and hopefully this is the start of a long-term protective eyewear relationship (I have a back up H&M pair for when I'm feeling particularly clumsy).  What sort of sunglasses will you be wearing this summer?

I can't quite believe how time has flown but the show is tomorrow!  In true last minute stylee there are a few things to finish off but the end is finally in sight after a crazy few months.  I'm really excited to see my family plus Winnie, Jazmine and Lucy!

  7. I actually tend to have a hard time finding sunnies that fit...not even vintage pieces do me justice. Was super excited when I snagged a pair from H&M a short while back.

    These TF pair are pretty bangin' I have to say. Can't go wrong with the 70s there it seems.

    And the yarn. Not until you pointed it out though. Hahaha
