RIP Hot Pink Sunglasses (2010-2015)
Despite using these sunglasses for about five years, I have always looked for an excuse to get rid of them because I felt ambivalent about these glasses from the very start. On the one hand, they are rather too ostentatious for me. Wearing them often warrants unwanted cursory glances from random passers by, and I hate that attention. On the other hand, they're just too fabulous for me not to wear. They work with just about anything from the duller side of my wardrobe, providing a splash of colour and life to a surprisingly wide variety of outfits.
The excuse I was looking for finally came, but with it came more uncertainty. Was I actually glad that I don't have to make that decision for myself anymore? Or would I miss not having them as an option to wear, so much so that I buy another pair? I am still unsure of my feelings as of this moment, but what I am sure of is that for those five years, I know I wore these beauties for myself. Screw everybody else.
