My new GLCO sunnies

I have been lusting after the Garrett Leight  'Lucille' sunglasses for a little while now (you may remember i mentioned them in this post), so I was totally over the moon when I was recently given a pair of my very own in black.

I absolutely love the classic cat eye shape of the 'Lucille' (apparently this style was inspired by Hollywood starlets of the 1980’s)

I got my sunglasses from Vision View Optometrists in Kloof Lifestyle Centre, Cape Town (I also get my contact lenses and eyes checked there - Danielle, the owner, is very helpful). The glasses retail for about R1800.

A little info on the brand: Garrett Leight, the son of Oliver Peoples founder  Larry Leight, recently started his own brand called: Garrett Leight California Optical (or GLCO). The brand focuses on designing timeless, classic eyewear styles and is strongly influenced by Southern California (past & present).
