Rachael from Fur Coat No Knickers wants to know what sunnies you'll be sporting this summer
All my style crushes for the year so far have had one thing in common: epic sunglasses. Lady Gaga, obv, Amber Rose, Arlo Weiner... none of these faces would like quite so marvellous without their specs.
I've always had something of a passion for sunglasses - my obscenely large/round head just looks better when accessorised, Mr Potato Head-style. In my experience, the best sunglasses (unless you're buying designer) tend to be vintage. Ain't that always the way? Jumble sales, charity shops and car boot sales all offer plenty of options - a friend in Nottingham recently found a trunk full of Rayban Wayfarers, all tagged up and still in their boxes, going for 50p a pop!
When it comes to online specs buying, though, I've never found too much choice. Of course Ebay and Etsy can always be relied on for vintage treats, but for something a little more specialised let me share with you my favourite new website - Giant Vintage. It's 100% the best sunglasses site I've found, and, more importantly, it's really cheap, even factoring in the shipping. My current picks are these Gaga-sque visor shades...
Also available is a whole array of not-so-tacky vintage specs, Mark Ronson-approved geek glasses and more. What sunglasses will you be sporting this summer, CQers?
