My return trip to the Optometrist/Ophthalmologist's office today yielded me being able to not only pick up my new PURPLE glasses and a couple of boxes of contacts, but a nummy pair of Kate Spade Soliel shades.
I haven't worn contacts in over a year, long story nobody really cares to hear, and I had done some horrible things like leaving my previous pair of Gucci Acetate shades in the glove-box of my minivan for that duration of time. I was lovingly reprimanded by the Optometrist that the heat warps Acetate eyeware, and I should never leave them in the car if I care for them so I need to adopt better care procedures.
My glasses are a non issue. I love the cases they come with. It's compact and it folds completely flat when I don't need to use it, but;
a. since I wear small glasses it's too small for the sunglasses
b. I always either need the glasses on my face or they are in the case when I am sleeping or wearing contacts so nothing else can use the case at that time.
I'm mostly pretty blind without eyeglasses or contacts.
The KS case that the Optometrist provided is a gorgeous color, just a shade or too deeper in value than Kiwi. But it's bulbous and will swallow the inside of my purse. I tried another case I had on hand that my Gucci pair has lived in (ironically KS when I complained about the bulbous Gucci case they provided) and they won't fit. So here I sit, needing to carry my shades in my handbag and no solution with which to carry them. Too bad TB doesn't make eyeglasses cases. Ultrasuede is such a nummy fabric, I know if that were the lining, there would never be a scratch.
Anybody have any recommendations for a safe, adequately sized, strong, responsibly made case for my new oversized shades?
