With the first month of the brand new decade almost coming to a close, I find it just fitting to post one of my favorite presents I got for the holidays – a Ray-Ban 3025 Aviator sunnies, no less! Thanks to my ever sweet hubby, who must have been so burdened to see my recently acquired eye strain syndrome brought about by the number of hours I spend on the computer. Even the doctor thought I had conjunctivitis. Proven by it surfacing every time I spend a lot of time working on the computer (which is practically everyday), it certainly is some kind of allergy or eye strain. Not that my Aviators healed my strained eyes. But it made getting out of the house bearable by not having to explain to the people I meet that it’s allergy and not sore eyes.
Not that I love my Wayfarer by Charles and Keith any less and having had my fair share of brands, my Ray-Ban aviator shades is by far the coolest. It being a style icon since 1930’s. It is practically timeless. Plus the fact that I may have a tinge of want to be a rock star of sorts from time to time. 😛
Cool was invented in 1937. Originally developed to combat the blinding glare experience by US Air Force pilots, Aviators merged formidable design with cutting-edge technology and changed the face of society forever.
I love that the frame is next to nothing lightweight. My aviators makes driving so comfortable too. The sun rays do not hurt my eyes when I’m donned in it. I can even use it indoors. Yeah, I was kind of compelled to put it to the test when I went to see my high school buddies on a night time when I had pink eyes.
my Aviators also came with a Ray-Ban Rare Prints shirt
and body bag. Sweet!
As much as I love the Ray-Ban classic case, I had to stash it away and make use of my Michael Kor’s sunnies hard case. I don’t feel very confident to just throw my Aviator sunnies in it inside my bag, which the husband would lovingly time to time call , “the abyss.” 😛

I may never pass for a rock star nor a real aviator in this lifetime. But a girl can dream, right? The hubby bought my Ray-Ban Aviator classic sunnies for around $200. 🙂
