Vintage Shades All Day

Who: Harriet from whereisharriet

What: Vintage sunglasses

Good old eBay!

How Much: “I can’t remember exactly, definitely under £10 (about $15) though.”

When I Use It:
“When it’s sunny, which, given that I live in England, is not that often! The clear plastic frames mean they go with everything so they often end up slipped inside my bag ‘just in case.’”

Shopping Tips: “Shop your mother’s closet! I’m pretty lucky in that my mum has never thrown any clothes away since she was about 16, so she has an amazing wardrobe of things to borrow. Even if your mum isn’t very fashion conscious I bet she has some vintage bags or scarves hidden away somewhere from years ago that she wouldn’t mind you taking off her hands! Totally free and a great bonding experience as you rummage through her wardrobe together.”

    This is so true! Even my mom who isn’t into fashion had a great purse that’s really grown on me….i.e. I always have it now!
