L.Y.D. (and a sunglasses shop giveaway!)

Over the past few years (okay, since I started blogging) I've become a sunglasses addict. They offer real protection from the sun, the illusion of protection from people who stare when I take outfit photos, and a fashion statement.
What is not to love?

I was delighted when Sunglasses Shop, a UK based company who offers designer sunglasses (such as Vogue, Ray-Ban and Ralph Lauren), offered to send me a pair to review.

This pair of Ralph by Ralph Lauren cat eye sunglasses is a contemporary cat eye, and the fit is perfect. Sunglasses Shop has an option to shop by face shape, so I chose round, and this was the pair my eyes went straight to.
Oh - and my yellow dress has finally made it's debut! It was only just recently that I realized how little yellow dresses were meant just for me - an L.Y.D. for Lyd!

You are the most adorable blogger. Ever. I can barely keep my sunglasses from breaking so I never have a good pair! These are so cute.

Love the L.Y.D! Such a fun take on the dress concept. It's always great to steer away from black now and then :)

Those cat eye sunglasses go perfectly with your yellow dress. It looks great on you.

Lorena said...

You totally rock the L.Y.D. and i love the sunnies.
I too admit to having a sunglasses fatal attraction.
They range from 1.99 USD sunglasses to pricey ones - i don't have a favorite and usually wear them all.
The sunnies you are wearing are giving me a flashback of a pair i saw in the US and which i am now regreting i did not buy, i did not buy it because i bought 2 pairs of sunglasses and 3 seemed a little over the top- i am going to have to stop listening to that little voice.
