This may sound like the weirdest thing ever, but it’s true: I actually only start really liking and wearing sunglasses this year. Before that, I could never find sunnies that felt like they added something to my outfit or were even comfortable to wear. I have a pretty tiny nose, which means that most sunnies slip and slide of my face – not a cute look, let me tell you that. This year though, I got the chance to try out some cute sunnies and now I’m officially hooked. How could I ever live without them?! Today I’m showing you the prettiest pair of sunnies that I own: these amazing leopard cat eye sunnies from the designer brand Gentle Monster. I’ve never heard of this brand before, but when I discovered it during my stay in Thessaloniki, I immediately fell in love. They’re sunglasses are just out of this world! So yeah, today I’m showing you my little monster, haha!


MY FIRST DESIGNER SUNGLASSES | GENTLE MONSTER SUNNIES MY FIRST DESIGNER SUNGLASSES | GENTLE MONSTER SUNNIESI love the shape of these sunglasses. I mean, how could you not fall in love with them right? They’re the perfect rounded cat eye sunnie. And don’t get me started on the print. I love the colour of them, because it matches my blonde hair perfectly. This way they’re not as harsh on my face as all black sunnies are.


IMG_3892NAPPYHAIRZ_GENTLE_MONSTER_SUNGLASSESThe sunnies come together with a very sturdy pouch and a little cleaning mitt. Most sunglasses cases are not really my thing: they’re either very bulky and big or they’re really flimsy and thin. This case is the perfect combination: it’s not as bulky as those hard sunglasses cases, but it will definitely protect your sunnies.


MY FIRST DESIGNER SUNGLASSES | GENTLE MONSTER SUNNIES MY FIRST DESIGNER SUNGLASSES | GENTLE MONSTER SUNNIESI think they are the perfect fit for my face. They’re extreme, oversized and definitely make a statement, but not in a bad way (or at least, that’s what I think!). Another big plus is the fact that they fit my nose bridge perfectly. I have a pretty thin nose, and finding sunnies that wouldn’t slide of my face was literally impossible. Until now. <3.


MY FIRST DESIGNER SUNGLASSES | GENTLE MONSTER SUNNIESThe exact name of the sunnies that I’m rocking is the Joli Lady S3 sunglasses. You can find them here (unfortunately, not on sale as I got them). I usually never spoil myself with expensive designer stuff (I love designer items, but I just can’t afford to buy my expensive wishlist – student life and all), but this time I did and it felt so good!


IMG_3874NAPPYHAIRZ_GENTLE_MONSTER_SUNGLASSESI really don’t understand how Gentle Monster can be such an unknown brand (or at least, the fact that I didn’t know it!). I’ve fallen in love with literally every single pair of sunglasses that they sell. If I had an infinite bank account… Well, you can imagine what would happen ;). Anyways, I hope you enjoyed today’s blogpost about these super awesome sunglasses. I would love to know what you think about them and if you were familiar with this brand. Have a good day today you guys and I will talk to you later in my next blogpost! Big love <3

    Ik ken het merk ook niet, maar nu ben ik ook niet erg thuis in de wereld der zonnebrillen (ik heb al jaren een Julbo en die is puur functioneel). Maar dit is absoluut een fraai model en staat je erg mooi! Nieuwsgierig als ik ben, zal ik direct effe gluren bij het aanbod van Gentle Monster 😉 . Dank voor het delen!
    Fijn weekend, Lilia!

    I am the same I was never able to find sunglasses that suited my face as it was so small and petite. A few years ago the fashion was to wear big sunnies which would make me look like an alien but now cat-eye sunglasses are in which suits me more!

    Wat een toffe bril!! De vorm is inderdaad perfect en hij staat je zo goed!! ♥ Ik kende het merk ook nog niet, haha. En zelf heb ik geen designer zonnebrillen; ik ben zo onhandig!! Ik ben met goedkope zonnebrillen al bang dat ik er op ga zitten, haha. 😛

    Oeh toffe zonnebril, ik kende het merk ook nog niet! Ik ben zelf wel helemaal verslaafd aan zonnebrillen, haha! Oh enne, ik draag bijna alleen maar designer zonnebrillen (Céline, Chanel, Fendi, Alexander Wang x H&M, Toms…) oeps….
