My new sunglasses - the catbans!

Yes that's right, a whole post dedicated to a pair of sunglasses.... it doesn't get any deeper than that on this blog!






I've long fancied a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers, but the shape just doesn't suit me.  There's something a little too square about it for my face.  Then more recently, I've noticed 50's style cat eye shape sunglasses all over the place, and I quite fancied some of those too, but was concerned about looking like I was in fancy dress.... as Edna Everage.  

Anyway, I think you know where this story's going, so I'll cut to the punchline.  Meet the Catbans.  Yep, I've named my sunglasses.  Do you see what I did there? Cat-eye + Ray-Ban = Catban.  I know, I know, I should get out more, but I bloody love these sunglasses right now!  They've got the bold, wide frames of Wayfarers, but with a more feminine and rounded shape - just what I was looking for.  

You can get your own Catbans from H&M for £6.99. Let me know what you name yours! :)

  3. Ooh, I might pick some of these up, I love them, they look so classy! I think they'd suit my face shape better than the Wayfarers too :)
