With the naughty nineties trend back with a vengeance along with an array of iconic styles to marvel in again, all those terrific memories come flooding back of my adolescence.
Yes… I can remember wearing ‘the satin bomber jacket’ first time around with ripped jeans, a cropped mesh top and to complete the look, a bejeweled choker. WOW! Those seriously were the days of high fashion, or so I thought. Was I fashion victim back in the day? Probably!
However, although we can all look back and cringe (mostly), the fashions are repeating themselves as we speak and now a much older and wiser me is wearing these styles all over again and I have to say it’s making me smile. For me, the 90’s were a happy time, no cares in the world, the world at my feet and fashion was something to experiment with to define ME.
As an avid specs wearer since the age of eleven, my stylist’s eye, this season has picked up on the rounded frames and blue mirrored lenses making a come back. After hearing about Maui Jim, I fell in love with the Leia sunglasses – inspired by the Hawaiian name meaning ‘heavenly child,’ Leia’s classic round frame is reminiscent of fashion styles from the past. With vintage charm in a fashionable yet high performance sunglass, Leia is fit for a princess. Well, what could I not love about these gorgeous sunnies?
My Leia specs came presented in a woven textured tan case and inside the Hawaiian printed cleaning cloth added to the quirkiness. These luxury specs feel incredibly comfortable to wear and every time I look through the lenses I imagine myself on a stunning desert island with nothing but beach and crystal clear waters to indulge in. Maui Jim sunglasses feature patented PolarizedPlus2® lens technology for brilliant colour so every detail is crisper and cleaner and without glare or harmful UV. Slip on a pair and see the brilliance for yourself!
