I have finally, after months of debating, bought myself a pair of sunglasses. The problem was that since I am very, very near-sighted, I had to get them done especially for me, which meant that the price was going to be higher than for a normal pair of sunglasses.
Since I am going to spend my winter holidays in Australia, where it is going to be extremely hot and sunny, I decided to finally go and get them done.
The shop assistant there was very nice and patient, helping me find a pair of glasses perfect both for my budget and my taste. I ended up having to choose between a couple of Michael Kors pairs, one more rounded and one more square. I had to trust my gut and pick the more square pair, since it is slightly more elegant and fits my personality better.
The shop assistant then helped me choose the colour of the lenses, making sure that they were good for driving and measuring everything. One week later, I finally went and got my sunglasses and I could not be happier.
The model I went for is called Marrakesh and they are perfect for me. Apparently they suit better an oval or round face and you can find them in other colours too. I went for the black and silver option, since it is my first pair of sunglasses and I wanted something timeless and that would go well with every outfit.
You can find them on the Michael Kors website, or on other websites specialised in sunglasses, like this or this, if you do not live in the US. For example, on the Italian Michael Kors website I could not find this particular model.
The sunglasses came inside a beautiful and quite particular off-white case, which has a beige suede interior. Inside also came a piece of cloth to clean the glasses with, the guarantee certificate and the manufacturer’s information note.
As with any other pair of glasses, these have to be cleaned only with water and neutral soap.
I must say that I am delighted with my new purchase and that I cannot wait for the sun to get out of the clouds so I can wear them.
Thank you for reading.
