I get a lot of requests to do a blog post about my sunglasses/sunnies collection. And I never got around to do it.
Yesterday I was asked again so, I guess I don’t have a choice anymore.
Finally, the most awaited post is here.
I have been collecting sunglasses for a long time now. In the beginning I collected prescription glasses. I have very bad eyes and I have been wearing prescription glasses ever since I was in second year high school. I always buy more than 1 pair. For back up and some I can’t resist buying if I see some nice ones.
I have prescription glasses all over my house and for all occasions (hahaha). For home use, for going out, for the beach, for the car, etc.
That’s how my obsession started.
I clean my drawers yearly. I give away the ones that I don’t like anymore. I usually keep the ones that are classic designs and the ones that has sentimental value to me.
One of the items that I cannot leave the house without is sunglasses. I never go out without one. Even if it’s cloudy or raining.
When we go abroad the number 1 on my list is sunglasses (second is cosmetics. hahaha). I bought most of my sunglasses during my trips abroad. I also buy online. And here in Manila I buy in Almeda Optical, Glorietta branch. The owner is my friend, Bombom Asturias and every time they have new stocks they call me. Or if there’s a particular pair I want they order it for me.
Okay, here we go.
- if you have seen me wear a pair that’s no longer here that means I have given it away or Claudia lost it
- you will notice that some pairs are the same but different colors. That’s because I cannot decide which pair to get. So, I end up buying both colors.
I make sure it is clean before I put it away.
So, there you are.
