And yet, here I am, 5 years late to the party - with my first pair of Prada Baroque sunglasses! And I'm absolutely in love. While the curlicue arms are trendy, the over-sized lenses are classic - and remind me of Jackie O's sunglasses from the 70s.
I received my sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses - my exact model is the Prada MINIMAL BAROQUE PR27NS-1AB3M1. Ordering sunglasses online can be tricky - Smart Buy has a virtual try-on option, which is fun to test out. But I had also previously tried on the Prada glasses at the opticians - so I knew that I'd love them.
Have you ever fallen in love with a popular item, years after the trend died down? I think for me, that's a great test - if you love it, even when it's no longer popular - then it's definitely worth acquiring! This holds true for my next wishlist bag - the Celine Nano. I've loved it forever - so now I'm on the hunt (due to all the price increases, I've been looking on the pre-loved market).
And speaking of new accessories - here's my latest watch - the Michael Kors Pink Dial Lexington in Rose Gold (MK 3285). I don't even need to explain why I bought it...rose gold + pink dial is reason enough!
Have you ever bought something after it went out of style?
