Sun is shining, the weather is sweet – sort of, but not today. But hey, that’s Vancouver, and summer is coming.
There’s nothing worse than being out in the beautiful weather and squinting like a baby who just tried a lemon for the first time.
And there are few things more essential in your spring/summer wardrobe than a quality pair of shades.
The stores are stocked at the moment with sunny’s from Canada, Italy, Spain Japan, France, Scandinavia, US, and beyond. The selection is hot and the frames are sizzlin’. Have a stroll round the neighbourhood and try on a few pairs.
May the kool be with you.
