Gimme Five! Reading sunglasses

Selection of five reading sunglasses

Here I am, writing this post as I sit in the garden on a warm, sunny day. I’m wearing a pair of reading glasses with a pair of sunglasses over the top. I have to admit, it’s not the best look I’ve ever rocked. I’m not too proud or vain to say it… I look a complete fool.

If I only wear my sunglasses, I can’t read what I’m writing; if I only wear my glasses, I can’t see the screen for the glare. There’s only one thing for it – a pair of reading sunglasses. The decision is, do I go for cheap & cheerful, off-the-shelf – they’ll mainly be for wearing in the garden – or do I shell out for a decent pair with my proper prescription?

I spend up to 18 hours per day staring at various screens. And besides, I’ve completely fallen for the London Retro Caine pair (#5). They may be a bit steep at £95, but you get a second pair free – so a pair of glasses glasses and a pair of reading sunglasses!

Charity Vintage: Scrivens clip on sunglasses

vintage Scrivens clip on sunglasses for sale on eBay for Charity in support of St Luke's Hospice, Sheffield

I could have done with these vintage Scrivens clip on sunglasses a few times in the past few weeks. My reading glasses don’t have photo chromatic lenses so I had the choice between sitting in the garden to enjoy the sunshine OR sitting indoors to work on my laptop. There would have enabled me to do both.

They’re very reminiscent of the 50s & 60s – I can just imagine them being worn by Don Draper or Harry Palmer. They’re being sold on eBay for Charity in support of St Luke’s Hospice, Sheffield* and have a starting price of just £4.99.

St Luke’s Hospice, Sheffield cares for people aged 18 and above throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses. They aim to control their symptoms, alleviate pain and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge.

Vintage-inspired 'Adore' oversized designer sunglasses available from 80's Purple

‘Adore’ oversized 80s Purple sunglasses – $10 US

It took YEARS of trial & error to find the right kind of sunglasses that suit the shape of my face. Much as I love the quintessential Ray-Ban Aviators, Wayfarers and those little John Lennon circular ones – they just don’t look right on me. My face needs those massive Jackie O-types that are thankfully fashionable at the moment!

These vintage-inspired 80sPurple ones are just the ticket and are available in a range of colours – and at only $10, I can afford to get one of each!
