I’ve been thinking of getting myself new glasses, because wearing contact lenses can tire the eye too much sometimes. I’ve gone to several opticians, but to look for modern frames is rather challenging. Sherly suggested that I go to Reliance Optical at Bangsar, because they have great pairs at great prices. So while waiting for Reza to finish work, I stopped by the store.
Damn son. The ones they had on display were enough to make my jaw drop. I’ve never seen so many of the latest sunglasses displayed in one place in KL! They were from brands I’ve heard of, but hardly see here.
So for the 1st 30 minutes I tried on different frames from Marni, Loewe, Salt etc. I still couldn’t make up my mind. Haven’t been wearing clear glasses for a few years now, so everything looks weird on me… I think.
Then macam biasa, got distracted and was looking at the sunglasses inside the shop instead. The sales dude introduced me to the one he thought would suit me. I love this the most:
The Dior So Real. It’s sort of like a rounded aviator, the frame plated with rose gold and the mirrored lenses in dark blue. Tried it on. I LOOKED SO COOL.
Is this thing huge now? Because it looks so good, I thought. He then told me that celebs are wearing this now. I googled, this thing’s been around for more than a year. Well, that shows you how ignorant I am XD
I was so tempted to get it, but getting it would mean that I’m not sticking to my mission i.e. buying prescription glasses. So asked for the guy’s card and told him that I’ll think them over.
Giving this a few months to see whether I’ll still be into it.
