Statement Sunglasses: Giles Deacon for Label M

I love me a good pair of statement, cat shaped sunglasses. I love them even more when they only cost me a fiver. Seeing as the sun is making it's happy face known to the UK at the moment, I thought it was time I treated myself to a new pair of sunnies to protect my eyes from the harsh rays. When I saw online that Label M were giving away a free pair of sunglasses when you purchase 3 cans of their hair colouring spray, I instantly fell in love with the design.

Before I properly start, I have a task for you during the course of this post...Spot how many dogs/ dog reflections you can see in the photos! Winner gets a prize (not really). 





Whilst I loved the sunnies, I didn't necessarily want to spend £20 on hair spray, so looked around and found that lookfantastic.com was selling the Giles for Label M statement piece for £5. I did a bit of research on the site, as it was not one that I had used before, and saw negative reviews plastering the internet. People who had never received their items but had their money taken, deliveries being sent to random addresses, and products being broken. It didn't look totally promising, but these people had lost hundreds of pounds, not a fiver, so I took the risk.

Contrary to this build up, my delivery arrived early, unscathed and no extra money taken. I had paid £5 and received my dream sunnies with no hassle at all! But, please always do your research on websites you have never heard of...sometimes it might not be worth taking the risk!



I adore these tortoise shell sunglasses- this colour suits my hair and skin tone far better than a bold black frame. My everyday glasses, which you might have seen in this post, are also the same colour, so it was a safe bet. I love the pink detailing above the lens; it makes it really fun and feminine, and makes a whole lot of difference to what would otherwise be your bog-standard Primark sunglasses.


What I love most about these is the shape. I am a huge fan of the retro-inspired 50s/60s cat shaped frame, so these were an instant must. I have quite a small, round (*chubby*) face so huge glasses don't really suit me, but this cat shape is perfect for those with a similar face shape to me. They're bold, and fun without drowning out half of my face!

Whilst the glasses were perfect on their own, you also get this adorable, lip-print adorned glasses case too! It's a transparent case sealed with a little popper- fab for slipping into your handbag when you're off out in the sun.

The attention to detail is wonderful and cute. Everyone needs that one pair of statement sunglasses, and I can see these being the only pair I wear throughout the summer!


 Thank you to Finlay for being today's model. He's a natural!
