|dare to wear your sunnies at night?:)|
A sunglass is a bag staple, agree?:) While it’s true that sunglasses can complete your outfit or even define your whole look, they also have a more practical purpose: protecting your peepers from the harmful effects of the sun. I have been a regular sunglasses wearer and is really into shades that tickle my fancy. I'm always on a hunt for a pair of shades that is lightweight, durable and affordable but ready to exude some serious attitude.
I did an advertorial last year and this cool pair of PEPE JEANS LONDON Limited Eyewear Collection was graciously given to me. They asked me to choose a color I like and this is what I got :)
|yeaps! no REDs this time, ho ho!|
PEPE JEANS LONDON is a famous British brand, known for its trendy and youthful aesthetics, takes Manila by storm and introduced sunglasses especially made for students. PEPE JEANS EYEWEAR launches the first ever limited UNIVERSITY COLLECTION, specially made for the hip Filipino youth. It features the much-loved Wayfarer in 4 different colours. You can choose from Red, Blue, Green or Yellow and match it with your school spirit.
Seeing the label University made me raised my eyebrows and thought of: What if this is suited only for students, college ones in particular? When I opened the case, the Yellow Wayfarer style Eyewear was such a charmer. Just a reminder that I am not in any way connected with UST okay :) It just so happened that I chose yellow for this shades and wanted to compare it with my Rayban's yellow wayfarer as well.

I was glad that this collection has departed from the traditional ones. If you’re considering buying Wayfarer shades that won’t burn a hole in your pocket, this is dope.
Sure Wayfarer may always have that classic appeal but at the same time, be careful when it comes to fit. The Pepe Jeans Eyewear (UC) Wayfarer is substantially smaller than the old classic style, as well as being a tad more modern, not dominating the face as the old style does.

|the background looks so Hongkong's Victoria Peak-ish right haha!|

✍ My take on the PEPE Jeans Eyewear:
First off, why Wayfarer? C’mon, they never really went completely out of style, they are edgy, fierce and cool at the same time. It’s actually up to the wearer on how you’d make it all work. I mean really! They are absolutely timeless (in style since the 80′s! ) and complimenting to almost every shape face. The Wayfarer Style is perfect for people who don’t like the larger lenses. Personally, I love the larger lenses because I feel like they cover my face much better, and there is no way that the sun is sneaking past my peepers. Wayfarers always have tickled my fancy and aside from it being a killer accessory, it’s practical to carry one in my bag every day. The classic style looks good on just about anyone.
The design matches its quality with its sleek, simple yet streamlined design. This one’s well made, exhibits a simple workmanship. The logo doesn’t look like crap or not in any way looks like a replica. None of those bling bling, Swarovski accentuates or whatsoever. Just pure minimalist design. The simplicity of its design complements one’s face structure. It even gives the illusion that I have a slimmer face. The thin plastic frame is so friendly that it doesn’t hurt my face and around my ears when worn.
We've discovered an area with a great view of the Marina Bay Sands..it's just at the foreground of the Singapore Flyer!
