My friend Hedvig, in Hyde Park near the Serpentine last week. She had just bought these sunglasses but totally blanking from who. I'm sure my Anonymous Source will let me know (it's true: I have no idea who that person is, or if it's male, female, or just... God. But every time I'm stumped, someone Anonymously gives me the answer).
The same day, an hour or so later, I was outside Oriental Canteen in South Ken with Mr. Dot, waiting for take away, when we saw a guy get off his scooter and order take away, too (it's the best). His dog was dangling from his backpack: the goggles are for the wind when they ride.
We have a winner! My first give away is now officially over. Laura, of no blog, came up with the most convincing argument why she should get a pair of Etnia Barcelona spectacles (see comments, 'lit chic'). She chose Chelsea, in tortoise, which is wonderfully nerdy. Check out their wild & whimsical website. I've turned down every single give away offer so far but there was something about this one. And I get a pair, too. I can't decide: Chelsea or Amsterdam, both in tortoise, in clear glass just purely for fun? Or go for the sunglasses: Cabarete or Le Morne, each in bottom half cream, top the brown diamond pattern?
I've got to decide soon, if I want to get them in time to go on holiday to the Dominican Republic and end of Long Island!
