I never thought I would need shades but on our recent trip to Macau, we walked around The Ruins of St. Paul, it was too hot and very sunny! Good thing there were many thrift stores there and also some branded stores. I stumbled upon a store where they were selling branded shades. They were carrying brands like Ray-Ban, Miu Miu, YSL and others. These were authentic shades (I think there are no replica shades there) and were selling at a low price. What's nice about the store is they have stocks of rare prints. I got to buy my aviator shades there but they didn't have the brown pair I wanted.

Since we were staying at the Venetian Hotel in Macau, there were a lot of stores and we even went to the Four Seasons shops. There was a store that was selling this and I got really excited. I even checked out other stores to see if they were selling it at a cheaper price but apparently it's the same everywhere. Too bad. So I got to buy this at retail and it's worth every penny. It's a bit more expensive because it's polarized. I got two shades from the trip, one was polarized and the aviators were not. I have to say that the polarized lens is very nice. It's clearer and you will see past the glare which is best for driving. Here's a link to Ray-Ban's site where they show you the difference between regular lens and polarized lens.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
