Do you have a sunglasses fetish? I can’t entirely claim that I do, but throughout the past years I’ve collect a handful of nice sunglasses I use on sunny days.
Finding a perfectly fitted pair of sunglasses for me is never easy. I could browse through stores an entire day and still can’t find one I really like. Last year, in Las Vegas, I found one that I wanted in the Gucci boutique. This pair of Gucci sunglasses was my immediate pick after I tried on a couple in the Gucci store. Not only because it looked good on me, I was also fond of its styling with a small Gucci logo and ribbon on the frame.
Another reason I like this pair of Gucci sunglasses is because it’s really light. I brought it to my four Las Vegas trips this year!
For my recent trip to the sunny California, I brought this favorite pair of Gucci sunglasses with me. While I was at the mall with my family, we visited the Barnes & Noble bookstore. I walked into the store wearing my Gucci sunglasses, but somehow lost it before I walked out of the store.
I must dropped it somewhere between the café and kid’s books section inside of the bookstore. After searching the store multiple times and finding nothing, I went to check with the front desk.
The girl who was working at the front desk asked me to describe the sunglasses. As soon as I mentioned “Gucci”, she said, “Oh, probably no one will turn it in”. My heart dropped, because she’s probably right. I’d never see that particular pair of sunglasses of mine ever again. I left my contact information with them and called them today. But there’s still no sign of my sunglasses.
My four-year old niece always looks at things in bright ways. After we walked out of the bookstore, she cheerfully said, “Let’s go buy a new pair”! Hours later I found a new pair of Dior’s special edition sunglasses with Swarovski crystals on the temples (Dior Mystere Sunglasses) at the Dior boutique at the South Coast Plaza mall.
Normally buying a new accessory, especially when it’s labeled as “special edition”, would make me feel very good, but somehow I don’t feel as excited as I could have been. Part of me feels bad that I lost something I still really like. (If only I was paying more attention while I was in the bookstore!)
Now I can image how Carrie Bradshaw (a character in the “Sex and City” show) felt when she lost her brand new Manolo Blahnik shoes at a friend’s baby shower! At least I had my Gucci sunglasses for 8 months. Carrie had to borrow other people’s shoes in order to walk home, but I have my new Dior to accompany me home!
