I’ve been considering a need for eyewear lately. Spectacles and I will never mix. I’m actually talking about sunglasses this time.
I’ll be honest. I was actually contemplating making the big purchase by placing an order for a five-digit pair of Prada sunglasses. Baroque, to be specific. Thinking about Prada isn’t something I do everyday. It’s not something I can spend on whenever I like either. I just thought I’d get something special for myself, of course, being that it’s 2014 and all.
Inspired by Pope Francis’s Prada refusal, I later on changed my sights to Nine West or Charles & Keith. That was until I found myself at Uniqlo today while I was strolling around SM City BF Homes Parañaque. I honestly never understood the hype– until now. I was amazed by their sunglasses display, and even more amazes at how well they fit me. I grabbed one pair, tried it on, and thought, “This is my humble purchase.”
I bought two of the medium oval sunglasses– one in black, one in brown, and both were in tortoise frames. These are staples too, so they’re quite the good buys. The best part is how I was able to buy two Uniqlo sunglasses for a fraction of one Nine West pair.
It’s nice how much we get to learn about life from shopping. The biggest lesson of all is that although nothing could substitute for a well-made item, I don’t really need luxury brands after all.:]
