Vintage Sunglasses

I woke up today and it was raining, woe! Still, I was determined to show you my mum's collection of vintage sunglasses anyway! They're one of my favourite things to steal off her. None are very old I don't think, nor very expensive - they're all charity shop and ebay purchases. I love them because they're a similar price to what you'd pay on the highstreet for a new pair, but much more interesting and individual. Expensive sunglasses are way out for me as I'm highly adept and losing them or sitting on them! 

ps - have you ever tried taking photos of mirrored sunglasses without getting a reflection of you taking the photo in them? It's really hard!

They look really cool. I have 1 pair of sunglasses, and even they don't suit me!

Those sunglasses are amazing.
I agree with not being able to have expensive sunglasses. They just break so easily

Wow I wish my mum had a cool collection of vintage sunglasses... Hers are all prescription ones with wonky arms etc. Eyewear fail.
Can't believe how much that Lanvin tote is... I think I hate fashion!
