Cross my heart: statement sunglasses

"Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye"


Ellen and I seem to be quickly accumulating a large collection of sunglasses. Since sunglasses aren’t super expensive
 and there’s such a range of them around, we always seem to be drawn to exciting and different frames and often end up
 bookmarking many pairs in our online browsing adventures. This particular pair was a style Ellen had seen photos of on
 tumblr and loved, so when she found them on Choies she was pretty excited to add them to our growing collection of specs.

We tried taking some quick photos of this outfit before I headed off to work on Saturday but there was something off about 
the lighting/my expressions so Ellen reshot them yesterday between school and hockey #busygirl. 
The weather is being so random at the moment in Auckland (typical Auckland weather), one minute it's sunshine, and 
sunglasses are a must, next second it will be pouring down with rain! When trying to take these photos we were getting
 rained on at first then blinded by gorgeous sunshine as you can see in the latter photos. 

sovereign holder necklace – antique

lipstick – MAC ‘Dear Diary’

shoes – number 1 shoes

sunglasses c/o Choies

dress – glassons

 
I remember learning this phrase in primary school and spouting it off to friends for various reasons (when I read it on 
sunglasses the I can hear my little kid voice saying it), so it’s kinda cool having this piece of childhood converted into 
a statement accessory, good spotting Ellen!

  2. I love buying lots of sunnies too! They are my fav accessory but right now my favorite pair are these aviators that have flowers printed on them. I wear them all the time! - These remind me of the infamous Chanel glasses that have been seen on lots of celebs like Rihanna.
