For those of you who have been following Cherry Humbug for a while, you might remember that I put the Prada Baroque Sunglasses on this Sunday Lust List last July. I’m afraid my craving for them never quite went away, and with Summer on its way again, and with all of my other sunglasses broken or lost, I felt it was time to indulge myself in their amazingness!
Needless to say, being the thrifty kind of girl that I am (and a student, living on a budget!) I could in no way justify spending £200+ on the real McCoy – and luckily for me, eBay fronted up the goods once again, and so here we are! I’m in love with them, and am determined to take good care of them so I can enjoy them all Spring/Summer long ❤
Speaking of Prada, one of my friends compared this River Island skirt to some of the designs from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection; the same that the sunglasses came from. I suppose without realising it, I’m becoming quite the Prada fan! There have been a couple of pieces on my Lust Lists from both Prada and Miu Miu, so I’m guessing Ms Miuccia’s creations are really hitting my buttons at the moment – now all I need to do is win the lottery… shouldn’t be too hard, right?!
It was a joy to be reunited with my camera remote (last mention of this I promise!) so I could photograph my outfit today with my Canon 5D Mkii. As you can see, there is a vast difference between the quality of this and my trusty old 400D, which has found a new home with one of my best friends, and soon to be housemate, Stewart. You’ll probably be seeing more of him in posts to come, he’s quite the little poser! Haha : )
Today hasn’t been all that eventful, I had a couple of parcels to pick up from the Post Office (one ties in with the tutorial I’ll be doing soon!) and have just been running other errands and settling back in at my uni house. So not much to report on! The weather has been a joy, as you can probably tell because for once I’m not wearing tights or jeans – woohoo! Fingers crossed that it’ll last, everyone!
