Recently I was very lucky to be chosen as the winner of a beautiful pair of Glaring Glamour vintage reproduction sunglasses from Catch A Thief! These come at the perfect time as Australian summer is just starting to sneak in!
A huge, HUGE thank you to the gorgeous Princess Pincurls for choosing me as a winner of the giveaway. You can see her blog here. She is an absolute sweetheart and makes some fabulous clothes to boot!
Now to the sunnies!
How darling is this packaging?!
Here’s a little bit about the sunglasses I chose, Glaring Glamour, from the Catch A Thief website:
“Walking hand in hand with your date on your way to an evening of swing dancing. Taking your time, you detour to grab two blue heaven milkshakes to go. These are the glasses you reach for when you are after the authentic 1950s look. With amazing gold details and diamants on the arm and face of the frames, these sunglasses turn the Fab dial from gorgeous to outrageously glam.”
And it’s true — these glasses made me feel like I just stepped right out of the 1950s! A perfect partner for your vintage outfits.

What I really loved about Catch A Thief was in their ‘About’ section on their website. Catch A Thief’s prices are ridiculously reasonable, which when you’re buying repro is sadly not always the case. Here is what Tessa (the founder of Catch A Thief) had to say about it:
“…even if [one] could afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of designer sunglasses, they would most likely meet their doom, dismembered at the bottom of [their] handbag.”
This to me, is a wonderful sentiment, as I myself have unfortunately seen the demise of beautiful sunglasses thanks to being carelessly crushed. Catch A Thief have solved the problem by making stunning, vintage inspired sunglasses that won’t damage your wallet — so if they get smooshed, you can snap up a beautiful new pair!
A huge thank you again to Tessa and Princess Pincurls, my Glaring Glamours are sure to be a staple in my wardrobe this summer!
Yours & c.,
