I have been on the hunt for new specs for... FOREVER!!
And... I have had my eyes on there CH3213 specs for a while... But AS ALWAYS I am so indecisive!
Here goes the story...
I wanted something that was a seasonal collection so that once they're gone, they're gone and no one else can get them (MWAHAHA!), but all the seasonal glasses don't suit me (my fault, because I have a really wide head) and I have been wearing rectangular frames for a few years and I wanted a change. Initially I wanted some Ray-Ban Wayfarer specs but... they're so common! I found some in that style by Chanel, but after a trip to the boutique, I found out that they were like past-past-past season or something like that. So I started whittling down all the other possibilities which lead me to the Chanel CH3213. I didn't like them at first, but the sales assistant was like "Omg this is so geek chic! Go for them!" well... she is a sales assistant so selling is her job(!) but her kind words started this little romance/tiff between me and these specs! When I was ready, I introduced them to my fashion friendlings and... it didn't help things as I kept on getting very extreme mixed reviews: some LOVE... some HATE...
So... What do we think about these?
