Ray-Ban Aviators (+Ray-Ban Junior Giveaway)

I have some cheap aviators in my collection, but I have always wanted a pair of  proper Ray-Ban ones with gold frames and brown lenses. Well... my dream came true, as I was kindly offered a pair recently and I am in love! Let me tell you why... 

I picked the beautiful Ray-Ban 3025 Aviators* (£117) and opted for a size Large (62mm). I have quite a big face and I also like sharing unisex sunglasses with my husband, so it was the best choice. The exact model is called Ray-Ban 3025 001/51 Arista/Crystal Brown Gradient, just in case you want to order the same pair. 

The gold frames are simply stunning and I love the brown gradient effect on the lenses. I personally think that aviators suit all faces, that's why they are such a classic and popular design (originally designed in the 1930s for pilots!)  

These come in a brown leather case, unlike my Ray-Ban Wayfarers (black case), which I actually prefer. I am not sure why, maybe it looks more Summery? The only downside of aviators are the super thin temples/arms and I am a bit worried that they might break easily (if you sit on them etc). So far so good though and I hope they last forever :) 

please excuse my makeup free face and the blogging/behind the scenes mess on the floor in the reflection :) haha

Overall... it is love and I am obsessed with these! The original  retail price is £135.00 but Sunglasses Shop always offer better prices and you can snap these up for £117. And if you find them even cheaper elsewhere, you can ask for a price match and still get the amazing service Sunglasses Shop offers. When it comes to designer sunglasses, I trust them 100% and their delivery is super quick and tracked, so you don't have to worry about anything. 

And if aviators aren't your cup of tea, make sure to check out other Ray-Ban designs on their website. I have my eye on the Ericas and Clubmasters. I think I am becoming slightly obsessed with Ray-Bans :)
