    Optical Obsession

    Optical Obsession (written in Dutch and English) The sun always shines in Italy, sunglasses are a mandatory fashion item! What I really like the most, I have to admit, is that I do have a glasses obsession. I wear contact lenses and they make my eyes very sensitive to direct sunlight. So this means I never will leave my house without my sunglasses. Sunglasses are like jewellery, a beautiful pair will give your outfit more character. My favorite examples are the larger glamorous ones that can turn a simple look into a stylish, globo look. The trend 2019 among the sunglasses is the large shield-shaped glasses and looks like ski…
