One of the things that will send me straight to the poorhouse is eyewear.
Welcome to Eye Society.
Home of your friendly neighborhood luxury brands such as Coach, Tory Burch, Polo Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Prada, Versace, Paul Smith, Oliver Peoples, Bvlgari and Tiffany & Co.
A true test of self restraint.
The team of Char CHAR!!! Siason walked us through their 4 major key trends.
Nga naman. If one were surrounded by gorgeous frames and born unto the Sesame Street generation, our ADD would not allow us to appreciate each and every piece.
Are you into prints? Me no. If you catch me in prints, that can only mean my labandera accidentally burned all of my clothes and am suddenly left with no choice but to borrow.
The only consideration I will make is if prints are of the camoflage or animal sort.
Like these tortoise Pradas.
There is something about rounded spectacles that are just so POGI. Even for a chick.
I’m wearing these ultra-light Theos and below are Pradas.
The belle of the ball was definitely FLOWERS by Dolce and Gabanna.
Sarap kainin?? Reminds me of those Goldilocks birthday cakes back in the 80’s where you’d race for the pink sugar flowers. Akin yung pink!! AKIN!!!
Delicate as they appear, worry not, for these flowers wont fall off. They are screwed on tightly and are made of a durable and non-edible material. Hindi lalanggamin.
When worn, it gives you the promise of instant star power. Paparazzi will appear out of nowhere and you will suddenly have fans all around!
Right Jackie? 😉
Now the Prada Poeme is an MFO favorite.
She finds it “So runway! So conceptual!”
Parang tinubuan ng bulaklakin ang kilayz!
“Like my eyebrows sprouted flowers.”
Here is MFO with her black Poemes, me in handsome D&G aviators and GJG in her Glitter D&Gs.
And now for some BLUE STEEL.
The Miu Miu RASOIR (pronounced RASWAH) quite literally means razor.
As such was used to cut the bottom of the frames.
I’m totally imagining the designer, late at night, at a creative quandary. Frustrated with his work, he grabs a razor (or an ax??) and swings at his desk then accidentally chops off the frames and VIOLA! Design genius!
Sorry I’m inventing that. Don’t quote me on that.
Let me tell you instead about true love…
SIGH. The Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian Baroque frames moved me to tears.
I will come back for you my beloved. Even if it sends me to the poorhouse! LOLz.
