Oh TK Maxx, if I could count the ways I love thee… We would be here all day. TK Maxx has gotta be my favourite shop of all time I reckon. It’s the bargain hunter in me that just LOVES rummaging through the piles of crap to find that hidden treasure, and today, well I got myself some GOLD. It was on my way out that I spotted a stand with about 10 pairs of these Vivienne Westwood Sunglasses on, I love a bit of Viv as it channels my inner punk in a non direct punkish way, and I totally love the signature Orb logo design. I immediately assumed these would be too expensive for me to treat myself too… But wait till you hear how much they were….
|Vivienne Westwood Sunglasses from TK Maxx|
The sunglasses are a nice big bug eye design which suits my round face just dandy, and they come in a admirably tacky gold case with a nice purple inside. I can’t really tell you much about the SPF or whatever the gauge is on sunglasses for UVA protection because I didn’t even bother looking at the leaflet that came with them, but what I CAN tell you is the RRP was £124!! And TK Maxx was selling them for…. £20! TWENTY ENGLISH POUNDS. I am immediately regretting not getting another pair!! But I’m leaving it up to fate to see if they have any in when I go to my local on this week (these were from the Wednesbury branch). I have looked to see if they’re on the TK Maxx website and unfortunately they’re not. Good luck to anyone trying to find these though, I bet they’ve sold out already at that price! It seems sunglasses can be added to my short list of things that I seem to have expensive taste in alongside shoes and coats, this is my second pair which cost a few pretty pennies (after the Dior ones I won last year) and I have a little collection of Betsy Johnson sunglasses too! I don’t even wear them a lot of the time because they leave that annoying mark on the bridge of my nose. Wahhh.
