Deirdre Barlow v’s Dunnes Stores

Dear Readers,

Hoo and indeed Ray! Apparently we’re all set weather-wise, for not only a great coming weekend but a darn hot summer. I know, I know they say it every year, but my eternal optimism means I believe them every year too; I’m all for hoping they’re right.

Plus, any excuse to think about face candy… I have  pricey shades. The ones that you defo don’t take to Oxegen / pub garden / mates BBQ. But I also like to buy an on-trend cheap, pair each summer. Ones that it won’t really matter if I loose. I’ve had a bit of an issue with that this year though. My vintage / retro obsession means that I fell in love with these shadesDandelion Daydreamer first alerted me to them).

The thing is, even though $20 is pretty cheap, I have also a problem with getting sunglasses to fit me. They either sit too high or they’re too loose and fall off or, and most annoyingly, they look plain ridiculous. So even though I will probably be ordering a pair of these retro shades, I need a back up plan.

As the title may have suggested, Dunnes Delivered. Of course they aren’t actually retro but they are fake retro in a Deirdre Barlow’s spectacles kind of way. Plus at €3, that’s a pretty old school price. Oh Deirdre if I’d’ve known you’d be my style icon this summer…

I went to a new boutique, Bow & Bangle in Ranelagh this afternoon too… They were loving the Deirdre style €21:

Oh, you know you will!
