Zoom In On Aviator Sunglasses – A Must Have at the London 2012 Olympics!

As the Olympics begin in London, fashion trends, especially summer and sporty outfits, will be in the spotlight once again. Since the Olympics attracts a high-profile crowd of celebrities, stars, and famous athletes, the British paparazzi and international fashion specialists will be chasing them down for the latest trends and styles for this summer. At SmartBuyGlasses Ireland we will also be on the watch for the latest eyewear trends. We can’t wait to see what type of sunglasses the Olympians will be donning on and off the sporting greens.

As a little avant-gout of what we might see at the stadium, we have compiled a selection of lovely sunglasses that are not only a big hit this summer, but are also classic looks that will be in style for years to come!

Check out the Aviator Sunglasses from Ray Ban to Carrera and from Tom Ford to Police Sunglasses. The most popular brands can all be found on our website at great bargain prices!

Aviators were first designed by Ray Ban and made popular in 1944, when General Douglas MacArthur landed in the Philippines during World War II, wearing a pair of aviators. In the 1960s, their popularity had risen so much that other brands began designing their own aviator sunglasses, using colour and material combinations that are unique and attractive.
Today, brands like Ray Ban, Tom Ford or Marc Jacobs offer a great range of classic aviators that are seen on celebrities such as David Beckham, Miranda Kerr or Britney Spears. The pairs below, for example, include the cool..(Ray ban Shooters), the legendary (Ray Ban RB3025) & the gorgeous!(Marc JacobsMJ016)

Ray Ban in particular offers an amazing range of colours. Consider the RB3025: that model alone comes in at least 44 different yet amazing colour combinations - all available on SmartBuyGlasses!
Other brands, such as Burberry, Prada or D&G Sunglasses, are popular for their glamorous looking aviators, such as the original Burberry BE4091, the stunning Prada PR57LS or the smart looking Giorgio-Armani GA-834/S as seen on Will Smith & German-Irish actor Michael Fassbender.

The likes of Carrera Sunglasses seem to be particularly popular on the music scene: they have conquered the most famous singers, including as Lady Gaga in her video ‘Bad Romance’ or Katy Perry in her Video ‘The One That Got Away’! Inspired by the Carrera Pan-American auto race, these sunglasses channel the cool and edgy vibe of racecar drivers. The Carrera Champion Sunglasses & the Carrera Gipsy Sunglasses have been a best-selling favourite season after season.

So let’s see what Londoners and sport fans will go for at the Olympics this year. Our guess? You will definitely see quite a few of these lovelies around! And if you have not found your dream pair yet yourself, just have a look now - no doubt you’ll find the perfect one at SmartBuyGlasses.ie.
Happy Olympics everyone!

Miinto.ie ~ The shopping experience.

You learn as you get older (how sad!) that what's really good for your wardrobe is staple pieces. I was delighted to snap up a gorgeous black dress from Missey boutique by shopping at Miinto.ie, Ireland's online shopping experience which brings together independant fashion boutiques from all over the country so you can shop from the comfort of your own home and at the same time support Irish business. Ahh convenience and doing something good in one go! Miinto.ie also has a fantastic range of brands to choose from like Nicole Richie's label 'Winter Kate' to Orla Kiely and Jeffrey Campbell. Nice. Click here to check out the full range of brands.

I would highly recommend shopping with Miinto.ie, it was quick and painless to order from the website and delivery is super quick which is what a customer is looking for! You could spend ages browsing through the great range they have.
The dress came directly from Missey which is located in Cork and a special thank you to them for the gorgeous bracelet & earrings that came with the dress. It was a lovely surprise and a nice added touch to the shopping experience.
There are a whole range of boutiques to shop from on the Miinto website, click here to see them all. Miinto caters for men & women and if that is not enough there is also a sale on at the moment!

I adore the dress I picked out, it has a small pocket detail, ties at the waist and is longer at the back. Perfect to dress up or down.
