The boyfriend gave me a surprise gift for New Year – a pair of sunglasses as he knows that I do not own one as of the moment. I never really care much about sunglasses (the brand and such) since I don’t really wear it for fashion but so I don’t have to squint my eyes from the blinding ray of the sun. He’s the one who usually tells me that I am putting my eyes in harm for buying the cheap ones. So for New Year, he bought me a Lacoste sunglasses.
The problem now is, I am Asian and I am one of the many who’s got a
non-existent low nose bridge which makes it hard for a pair of sunglasses to stay put. It’s either, I’ll spend all my time pushing it up so that it covers my eyes the way it’s supposed to or it will comfortably sit on my cheekbones which is not how it’s intended to be worn.
Evidence # 1: Look closely, can you see my nose bridge holding the sunglasses up? If you answered no then congratulations, you’ve got a good eyesight. I do not have a nose bridge and my cheeks are holding the sunglasses up.
Evidence # 2: This right here is more ridiculous than the first. So ridiculous that I’m not even sure why I shamelessly posted that photo.
So to make the long story short, the sunglasses that was bought for me by the boyfriend doesn’t fit and we had to go back to the store where he bought it from to get it changed. We spent more than an hour inside the store (I kid you not) just to find the perfect pair for my stupid face. I was actually so close to giving up until I found the one, a Gucci nonetheless.
Can you see that the pad mounts
miraculously actually sits on my non-existent very low nose bridge and that I am smiling on the photo but it did not in any way went higher than my unkempt eyebrows?
I am very happy with it, so happy that I am a bit hesitant to use it just so I can keep it for longer use. When I got home, I then found out that Oakley does have the revolutionized Asian-fit sunglasses to satisfy their customers who doesn’t have the luxury of having a high nose bridge. Well, at least now I know.
