I was able to find one at Mango sometime last year but being so cheap I decided not to buy it right away even when it is only sold for Php2,500(~US$57). Unfortunately when I decided to buy them, they are already out of stock or probably decommissioned :( I've been on a search since then. I saw cute sunglasses in Charles and Keith in Serendra but unfortunately I was in a rush last Friday I didn't have the time to try them out. I tried to find the same glasses in Trinoma but they do not sell sunglasses there.
I am starting to have headaches for not wearing glasses for more than a year already so I went to Optical Shop Trinoma today to replace the Burberry eyeglasses I lost last year. While waiting for my new eyeglasses, I saw and noticed the Roberto Cavalli sunglasses displayed there but I find it too expensive to spend Php18,990 (~US$432) for sunglasses that I would use everyday. I also didn't like the design enough to make me spend for it so I decided to postpone buying sunglasses.
As I left the Optical Shop, across the store is another eye shop (which I unfortunately forgot the name) with the sign "up to 70% off" haha! :) So I decided to look around and check what they have. I admit I was attracted by the 70% offer but unfortunately the ones on sale are tacky. However, I saw 2 glasses I liked woo hoo!
I fell in-love at first sight with the Gucci one but not that much with the Guess since I find it common for some reason. I am not someone who would spend this much on sunglasses but once I like something so bad I have to get it. I've been searching for so long to find the perfect sunglasses for me and I am so happy to finally found one. :) Unfortunately, it wasn't on sale but the lady there said she would give me a discount for the Guess sunglasses if I am taking it so I did and got the 2 for only Php15,400 (~US$350). So I bought the other glasses for only 1500 haha :)
I wasn't looking for one because I want to be fashionable, I needed it because I didn't want to squint which causes lines/wrinkles along the outer corners of my eyes and I didn't want UV rays damaging the thin layer of skin around my eyes whenever I am out in the sun. I know I am paranoid about UV damage on my skin but I am happy I found something that looks fashionable and gives me 100% protection at the same time :) I plan to use the cheaper one for daily use and use the other whenever I travel out of the country so its not bad I got both. ^_^
