Is it socially acceptable to wear sunglasses in winter? I don’t know and I don’t care. Sometimes you just want to go out without eye makeup or if you’re like me avoid eye contact with strangers because you’re an anxious freak. Or maybe you just want to look fabulous and avoid the winter sun (because it’s a real thing)! Well the Two Lippy Ladies kindly sent me a pair of the Catch a Thief – Glaring Glamour sunglasses in black which I have been lusting over for a while! If you’re in the market for a new pair of sunglasses and are struggling to find a high quality vintage reproduction brand with a variety of styles/eras then Catch a Thief is the brand for you! Luckily for us girls Two Lippy Ladies carries a range of their sunglasses including; Madly, Lady Lucite, Glaring Glamour and Basking Beauties which come in array of colours including: red, black, blue, pink (!), cream, jade and tortoiseshell. What more could a girl want?!
About Catch a Thief in their own words:
“It all started with a quest. A noble quest to find a pair of sunglasses for a girl with a vintage taste, a small budget and a thirst for cateyes. This girl longed for sunglasses that would not only protect her from the bright Australian sun but reflect her vintage style and be gentle on the wallet. Because let’s face it, even if she could afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of designer sunglasses, they would most likely meet their doom, dismembered at the bottom of her handbag. More importantly, she wanted something different, something more than the ordinary. Her answer came to her in a pair of ‘Glaring Glamour’ sunglasses. But then she thought, who else might face this problem?
Supported by a team, Tessa Rickard is the founder of Catch a Thief.
Tessa‘s love for vintage began as a child living in a 150year-old terrace house where every detail captured her imagination and developed a romantic sense of the past. Tessa now deals in Vintage Women’s and Children’s clothing at the Vintage Emporium in Tyabb while running Catch a Thief online from her home on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.”
Although it’s just hit Winter I have already been able to pair these glasses with three different outfits, they never look out of place but instead can really pull an outfit together. I freaking adore every detail on these too, the diamante with the gold stars give the pair of glasses a whimsical feel without it being overly cheap and tacky. The quality is there too, they’re strong and the glass isn’t flimsy in the slightest and they come with a free pouch to protect the glasses! The glass itself has high sun glare reduction, high 400 UV protection and they are lens category 3 sunglasses. Overall I’m pretty impressed, only $44.00 NZD and free shipping (for NZ ladies) from Two Lippy Ladies. You get what you pay for with; quality, fit, style and practicality – bring on that sun!
