It’s official – as of today, Summer is over! Time to put all of my summery clothes and shoes away, but luckily, sunglasses are good to wear all year round, and I’ve got a stunning Gucci pair to show off on sunny Autumn and Winter days!
These are the Gucci GG 3500/S WNY/K8 sunglasses; they have a medium square plastic frame and an oversized style, so they are meant to look quite big and bit celeb-like. I don’t normally go for oversized styles because I’ve got such a small face and I think big sunnies make me look a bit weird, but for some reason I really do like these – I guess they make me feel like Kim K, walking around avoiding the paps on a no-makeup day! :)
The Gucci GG 3500/S have a beautiful dark rose frame and a dark rose shaded lens colour, so it gives a nice gradient pink tinge to the world around you. These are also available with prescription lenses, and in brown, dark brown or black.
The gradient effect is really cool because it fades from dark to light, so you get plenty of shade at the top (where you need it the most), and the bottom of the glasses, where you don’t need much shading, are much less shaded.
These sunglasses are extremely comfortable to wear and they feel very sturdy and well-made. On each side, there is a heart-shaped Gucci logo in rose gold, which is so pretty and dainty! The glasses have a very sophisticated and stylish feel to them – I think Gucci has turned me to the dark side of oversized sunglasses.
One of my favourite things about these sunnies is the stunning Gucci case! It’s in a triangular shape when the glasses are inside, but when you are wearing your glasses, the case folds into a flat purse-like rectangle. This is so convenient and it saves a lot of handbag space!
Now I’m sure most of you know that Gucci sunglasses aren’t the cheapest, so it’s definitely an investment piece and if you’re normally on a budget like me, it may take a few paydays until you can afford one. However, in terms of value for money, I think you definitely get what you pay for with these glasses; they are stylish, elegant and very well made – everything you’d expect from a pair of designer sunglasses!
If you look around, you can find discounted prices floating everywhere, but in case you’re wondering, these ones are from SmartBuyGlasses and I’m very happy with their prices and service. They sell lots of designer sunglasses, including RayBan, YSL, Tom Ford and Dolce & Gabanna.
The glasses arrived in less than 4 days and it came perfectly and safely packaged with all the certificates, lens cloth & tags. At the moment, the Gucci GG 3500/S are 15% at SmartBuyGlasses, and they have the brown, dark brown and black in stock.
