Smart Buy Sunglasses – Just Add Sun!


It’s rare for me not to have a pair of sunglasses out of reach. They’re in my bags, there’s always a pair in the car and even if it’s not sunny, They will be on my head! I buy cheap for the latter part of the year, I need them often for driving in the winter months when the sun is low and glares through the screen, but once summer arrives, well they are an important accessory aren’t they? We need to protect our eyes the best we can.

This is the second pair of sunglasses that I have been gifted from Smart Buy Glasses. The first pair I chose are my most worn sunglasses of all time and I look after them with kid gloves.

A pair of petite Raybans. You can view that post here. Now that’s one of the things that I marvelled at when I found I could get petite sunglasses from Smart Buy Glasses. (Take a look in the Asian section)


A virtual try on – try sunglasses before you buy



When asked to choose another pair of glasses I was going to go straight to that page where the petite sunglasses were sold but these Bvlgari ones stared straight at me on the first page and it was love! Smart Buy Glasses do have a virtual try on. Could I possibly get away with these without looking like the fly?

The try on didn’t stop there, I had some right laughs trying on all the glasses let me tell you! You can take a picture of yourself to see what your desired pair of sunglasses will look like. Centre. left and right. You get a rough idea but the photos are hilarious! Soon all the family were trying on glasses!

I decided after seeing the Bvlgari glasses to give them a try. I think I can just about get away with this size and they are just so beautiful

When these sunglasses arrived I gushed just at the packaging! It’s the little things like this that make me happy! A good sturdy case to keep the new glasses in all the quality you would expect from Bvlgari. Smart Buy Glasses guarantee that they have the best price for designer glasses and if you are a designer sunglasses collector I would like to know what you think of their price point?

I love the coloured and gold mosaic print on the side and the dipped gold arms to the sunglasses. Even the cleaning cloth is a work of art!




I normally go for a lighter frame but the lenses are a rose tint ( you can choose the lens colour) and I think that helps draw away from them being too dark. I just wish the day was sunnier to share these beauties with you!


The outfit

You may have seen the skirt on my wish-list last week? Well, Mother’s day paid off and one of the children bought the skirt. I love a pleated skirt and the colours in this one really caught my eye. This shade of Blue plays a huge part in my summer wardrobe and I just keep adding to it.

I’m also wearing the Christina T-shirt featured last week. We all need a good quality White T-shirt and this one is special. The cotton quality is good and there’s no see-through. I hate that.

The Suedette jacket is super soft and again a gorgeous Blue. It will work perfectly in the summer months with White, Yellow and my favourite Beige tones. It’s unlined and very lightweight.

All we need now is sun! I want to wear my sunglasses more!  It was such a dreary day when I took these photos. Completely different weather compared to last year. The glasses are at the ready in my handbag kept safely in that gorgeous gold box.

    I’m enjoying this “ode to cat-eyes” glasses you got. The colors on the sides are really nice. Thanks for sharing this find with us at #OMHGWW.

    My husband would say that I have hundreds of pairs of sunglasses, in fact, I have about a dozen, These are all great, might just have to buy a few more pairs#bloggerclubuk@_karendennis

    Thanks for introducing me to the website – those Bvlgari sunglasses are to die for, that mosaic edging!! And great that you got the skirt, it’s such a lovely colour on you with the jacket. Thanks for joining #WowOnWednesday!

      Glad you like them Gail. I worried about them being too big but I think I can just about get away with this size xx

  12. April 16, 2019 / 10:24 pm

    Hi Laurie! Thank you for the tip on the website, where I would also need to look at petite or “Asian fit” frames. I need a 47-49 m frame, which is small, and some of the sites are so limited! I will check them out tomorrow. I need prescription though, are yours? They are stunning, love the shape and details on you.
    The baby blue jacket is lovely on you and so glad you got the scarf skirt you wanted. Very elegant!

      It’s quite surprising how many women need petite frames Jess. I was so pleased to find this website for that. Yes, they do prescriptive lenses too and I will be trying those later. xx

  13. April 16, 2019 / 5:41 pm

    What a fab fit and like the design of the frame themselves x #dreamteam

    These sunglasses are simply gorgeous Laurie as one would expect of such a label. Love your outfit from head to toe, the skirt, the jacket and the shoes. I have never heard of this business until I read your post. The prices do look lower then in our shops and they ship to OZ!

  18. April 11, 2019 / 2:56 pm

    Those are some pretty sunglasses. I need to grab an extra pair because with my boys, one pair usually gets broken every summer. So write now I am sticking to cheap ones!

      I’m so with you on that! I only wear cheap ones when I visit my grandchildren. They always want to have a try on! xx

    Do you find there’s a difference between the expensive glasses and the cheap glasses? I thought they were made to the same standards but never understood the price differences. I have often wondered if cheap ones are good enough for driving or I should buy expensive ones in the hope that they are better. My current cheapies for driving cost me £20 and I keep them in the car all the time. They make a difference but sometimes there’s just no avoiding the sun. I have several much cheaper ones for out and about as I lose them so never wanted to spend more than a tenner. What do you think?

    • laurie
      April 11, 2019 / 8:15 am

      I do think there is a difference. I usually buy £5 glasses from the supermarkets for winter mainly for driving. Once The lighter days are here I tend to swap over for the highest UV protection. Higher priced sunglasses usually have anti-scratch and anti-glare plus a choice of gradient – different coloured lenses. It is suggested that the darker the lens the more protective they are, that is a pretty obvious statement, but I prefer a lighter lens personally.

    Wow, your kids do know what you like! What a gorgeous skirt. I love sunglasses with a bit gold in it. Very stylish.

    OMG! the whole outfit is stunning! Love the glasses, skirt and everything. How lovely to get sunglasses, I wear them all year round too! Having seen where you store your’s I’m thinking I need something similar.
    I’m sharing my Mother’s Day present on the blog tomorrow too! Just so lucky the kids picked up on my hints, lol. Have a super week Laurie. Jacqui Mummabstylish
