During this epic bought of actual summer weather (such a rarity over here!) I've been trying on sunglasses left, right, and centre over the past few weeks.
Normally as a glasses wearer I tend to forget to check about getting prescription lenses in designer glasses so I tend to leave them, but as of this summer I've decided to finally bag myself a good handy pair of prescription designer glasses.
Picking an actual shade to suit both my sartorial style, and my face has been rather fun; this season so many designers have actually been on my wavelength. Tom Ford's latest collection have been largely influenced by the 60's taking direct inspiration from his film A single man. I adore the cross over effect glasses, and large cream coloured frames.
Paul Smith's range has also had me grappling at the shelves; the tortoise shell styled designs, and retro inspired plastic frames are just stunning.
Then there's the stunning large bug eyed frames of Miu Miu; in a stunning purple shade with pink lenses.
I am finding myself more drawn to the stunning retro 60's inspired designs available, with such choice even further afield I am finding myself rather spoilt! Now to just whittle it down to a pair, or at least two...

My where has the time gone! It's been such a hectic fortnight at the day job that all else has been pushed aside, but I've distracted myself greatly over the past week with a few treats & future wants.
Taking a touch of the adoreable, mixed with my dark side; ever a fondness for zombie related cuteness when I found this Zombie pussy dress by Katie Crush I almost died! It's such a cute cut dress, with a slightly gorey but adoreable print.
Continuing the cute diy touch, I've long been a fan of Clutterfly for their cute take on tattoo inspired jewellery. This newest addition of a tiger heart design is just darling; & reminds me of one of my 90's faves Kenickie.
Even though it's taken me weeks to finally have a test of the new make up range at Topshop I've already found a few favourites. I'm adoring the bargainous pots of glitter, & pastel nail varnish shades; particularly the lemon sorbet like Bees knee's shade, such a darling summery shade!
And on a finally summery note, this Breton tunic at Urban Outfitters is the perfect long summer tee; heck if I'm feeling brave enough I may just team it up with some bright tights!
