Sun and the glasses


There are three things money can’t buy – love, habits and inbuilt attributes. For everything else stylish and more stylish I logged on to http://www.gkboptical.com .  Since when have I worn sunglasses? I don’t remember. Born and bought up in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India, I had to go through extreme summers and driving a two wheeler was an added reason for my mother to admonish me ‘Wear you sunglasses or goggles as she called them’ whenever I went out. Back in 90s, the common shades available were black and brown. People would be considered high fashion if they could get a sunglass in any other shade say a dark blue. Things have changed now, whatever shape you want and in whatever color you want with the finest optical glasses with deep fiber coating and tint effect is now available( checkout http://www.gkboptical.com for a more elaborate range of the stylish GOGS :D).
Below are the looks I tried on my picture pairing them with Designer sunglasses from the GKBOptical site, trail is free (you can try one yourself):

1. The pseudo – geeky look

 

I am wearing here RAY-BAN RB 4159. The reason I chose this particular model:

a.       My Love for Ray-Ban from childhood to create a smarty look
b.      I like pink – be it bedsheets or sunglasses
c.       The edgy beetle end of these sunglasses makes them look different from the rest of the genres.
d.      I like the overall Batman shape.
