I was crushing on the Dior So Real (see post here). I kept on going back and forth to different stores in Tokyo, not knowing which to pick because they were all so nice. Back home, I remember seeing limited choices in stores, but here, the range is amazing!
I considered colored lenses, but Reza reminded me to stay true to myself i.e. go black.
At the end, I settled for the grey mirror lens with palladium hardware, which is still very me, I think. Love everything about it with the exception of the contrasting nose pads, which I find disturbing.
When Reza saw it though, he was shocked.
“You beli yang ni???”
He expected me to get something more macho and I told him, it was macho!
Then he went on about how I was the one who shared this ideology that everything (well, most things) must be in the shades of black and white and that I was contradicting myself. I defended my choice:
In other words, I was still in accordance with my principles 😆
The problem was the mirror lens, he said. He couldn’t accept it because it’s too much for me. He thought I’d get the black lenses.
Anyway. Love it.
… despite all the reactions I get from it over here, including:
“Mia, you look like a mafia.”
