the trouble with threes
(From top: Shades from Persol, American apparel and Linda Farrow for The Row)
I was organizing my clothes from a recent trip and I discovered these. I bought three shades in the last three months and they all look the same. Shocker.
There is this Latin term I remembered from University ,omne trim perfectum, which basically means, everything that comes in threes is perfect or every set of three is complete.
I guess what that tells me is that I should stop buying the exact same thing over and over again. I’m unconsciously aware of that behavior, most of the time anyway.
So. No more D-frame, wayfarer-type black shades!
My repetitive shopping pattern stops here. This set is “complete”.
I love these Persols. The quality is unbelievable. The best polarized pair I’ve ever had.
This vintage pair from American Apparel was an impulse buy, but I couldn’t help it. It’s so retro I have to have it!
The shape of this pair from the Linda Farrow collaboration with The Row is so classy and chic. The dark-tinted lenses : perfect for very bright, the-day-after hangovers .
I know. They all practically look alike.
I’m pretty sure I’m not alone here.
The trouble with threes, eh? ( I had to use the interjection, I’ve been seeing a lot of my Canadian friends lately)
Happy shopping! xx
