Sunglasses – Product Review – Find the Silver Lining

It seems that old saying, “every cloud has a silver lining” is true.

While the Fashion Mister and I were in Spain, I managed to lose my sunglasses case, which meant my D&G sunnies ended up with a few good scratches from being in my handbag unprotected. As sad as it was to see them go, it was made a lot less painful thanks to my friends at They suggested I pick out a new pair of sunglasses from their online shop.

Normally, shopping for sunglasses online could be a little intimidating. How often have you put on a pair of sunglasses in a shop that you like and they look horrible on you?! What if I ordered a pair and they just didn’t work? Thanks to the Style Notes section included in all the ranges for each of the individual sunglasses, all the worry was taken away.

I live in Australia, the sun is bright FULL ON here in the summer so I wanted a pair that would protect my eyes from sun damage and still look great. After having a good look around the website, I selected a pair from the Polaroid range in pale blue. The Style Notes said they would be good on Diamond, Heart or Oval face shapes, as well as, be suitable for blondes, brunettes and red-heads. So I ordered them!

New Sunglasses: Can you tell how happy I am with this new pair of sunglasses?! They really are a pale blue colour but have kind of taken on the colour of my shirt. I have also worn them with blue, purple, turquoise and pink and they look just as fantastic but a slightly different colour. I was really excited that they worked so well with my face shape and colouring. Having the Style Notes really took the guess-work out of ordering online and ensured that I got a fantastic pair of sunglasses suitable for my style.


Perfect sunnies for a bright new day!

It should be obvious by now that I am quite pleased with my new sunglasses. But I’m really dying to know what you all think! Do they suit me?

I now no longer have a fear of ordering sunglasses online and will definitely go back to for my next pair. After all, no stress, helpful Style Notes, cute styles and designer brands all at a great price. What’s not to love?!

Thank you to for sending me this fab new pair of sunnies so I could share them with you.
