It all started with this post by Garance Dore. A I saw the header picture and read on, my eyes went as wide as teacups: foldable sunglasses?!? Where have you been all my life? I had been considering a new pair of black sunglasses anyway, and when I read about these I couldn't stop thinking about how perfect they'll be for traveling (so these are coming with me to Paris in 3 weeks time for sure). These are seriously brilliant, and I'm so glad I got them! Fold them and put them in your pocket when entering a store instead of fumbling in your bag for the case, or instead of pushing them up onto your hair and getting tangled with the nose pads (of my aviators), or dropping them tto the ground when you bend down. You can get a pair here.
Ray-Ban foldable Wayfarer sunglasses (I bought the polarized version - still much cheaper than any other sunglasses I own)
Ok, sorry to scare you guys, but I thought I'd show how they fit on the face. I'm so glad I went in store to try them on, as I was sure I'd go for the bigger/oversized pair, but on trying decided on the original size. n.b. I didn't intend the photo to be fuzzy, but with the camera on timer this is the best I could do...
