I’ve had my sights firmly set on a acquiring a new pair of oversized cat eye sunglasses for the past year and a half, yet countless hours spent searching online always proved fruitless. I decided to take my chances early December with a pair of Karen Walker’s northern lights, which six weeks later, finally appeared after getting lost in the Christmas post. I took these snaps a couple of weeks ago, and after sleeping on it came to the conclusion that perhaps they just weren’t me. But looking back on these photos, I’m not so sure I made the right decision. What do you think?

Get the look:

    I rather like them on you actually – I just wish I suited sunglasses like yourself – the bridge of my nose is too flat so sunglasses don’t tend to sit well. But I do keep trying – maybe I will find my perfect pair this year. Fingers crossed.

    BTW – the lipstick looks lovely.

    I don’t mind them but I guarantee you if you’re unconvinced, they won’t end up being worn!

    Those sunnies look wonderful on you. I particularly like your necklace, where is it from? Oh, and I was looking at the new lover lookbook this afternoon and thought of you, some of the pieces are just to die for!

      Aw… I ended up selling them on too, decided I would rather find something a little less.. big?
      The necklace is from Taiwan, I purchased it a few years ago and it is still one of my favourites. And YES! I have pre ordered a few pieces, couldn’t not really, a lot of it is really lovely.
