I have quite sensitive eyes, and am never found without my sunglasses close to hand (well, in my handbag, actually, but you know what I mean).

I like to think that I have a good balance in my sunglasses choice. I choose the sensible Cancer Council Polaroid glasses, as it’s good to look after your eyes. And I also like to choose the funkier styles they come in these days. Needless to say, I feel pretty confident that when I wear my sunglasses, I am far from in danger of being arrested by the fashion police.

Until the other day.

I was getting onto the train on my way to work….

when… (*cue nyah! nyah! nyah! nyah Psycho music*)

I spotted an old lady wearing the same sunnies as me.

And she wasn’t one of those funky old ladies that keeps up with these things and trades fashion tips with their grad-daughter. She was one of those old ladies wearing some sort of 80s tennis visor and terry-towelling stretch slacks.

I think I might need some new sunglasses.
