My First Pair of BIG Sunglasses

As I am very very myopic and astigmatic, I wear only prescribed sunglasses and they tend, for some reason, to be like the normal glasses I wear every day of my life. I do not wear contact lenses (too lazy and really I've no time) and I have yet to undergo Lasik surgery (no one to look after my kids), so I have never owned any of those movie star BIG sunglasses that I see almost everybody wear when the weather starts getting good.

I must be getting a little frustrated about that since I couldn't tear myself from the sunglasses on display a few days back when I was browsing in the Escada boutique. I picked up a couple (goodness, they cost as much as if not more than a pair of leather shoes) of them and started to try them on. Only problem was that I couldn't see nothing without my glasses. I stuck my face onto the mirror, but still I couldn't figure out much of the sunglasses I was trying on...

I should have had better sense, but I gave in to the temptation and just grabbed a pair and paid up. I have always laughed when I saw people putting on big sunglasses with big logos on the sides, so I got the one pair with the Escada logo printed tiny but all over.

I still do not know if it suits me at all. I haven't succeeded in seeing myself in it yet.

PS : This is the kind of stuff that I can publish as Hubby doesn't ever visit my Blog. He has no time, you see. I would worry more about my father, as he's going to say, "Lotus, why did you buy that rubbish you can't even wear when you should be giving me more pocket money to buy 4D with?"

Pris, your flu got to your memory...you've forgotten that I was away for 2 weeks.

The laksa plant is more dead than dead, btw. But I've cut off the branches and am trying to see if endless watering will salvage something.

Have you met Su? There's Loon a Penang guy (NUS) living in Stuttgart. Wonder why everybody's coming just when I'm leaving.

We'll meet up when I have more time, got to change winter tyres, deal with 2006 taxes etc this week.

You take care, hope you're feeling better!

That is a nice pair of sunglasses you have there. Well...as to make full use of it, may be you should get yourself a few pairs of daily disposable contact lenses :-)

I had stock for 2 years, wore just a few pairs and threw the rest away last year. I just do not feel comfortable in contact lenses, too used to my old pair of glasses. But happy anyway that I have a pair of movie star glasses to look at in my wardrobe now...

I have one of them big, big, dark, dark movie star shades too. LOL.

I can't live without my contacts as I'm blind as a bat and vain to boot. I've been seriously considering lasik but will only do it in Singapore because of the cost. For the same price they charge here, I can throw in a tummy tuck as well in Singapore. Hahahaha....

Dutchess, what tummy? Since when do you have a tummy?

I would do my Lasik in S'pore too, but must stay at least 6 weeks there, as one'll have to return for checkups every few weeks after the operation.

But I'm not surprised about your BIG BIG sunglasses, having heard about you being a vain pot...:-)

When I sit down, my tummy becomes Jabba the Hutt. LOLOLOL.
