Last weekend I went to Vancouver, and the highlight of my trip was going shopping. We went to so many different stores and one of them was an Oakley store. I was pretty excited when I saw purple sunglasses, and all of my friends know that I LOVE the colour purple. I had no choice but to try them on. I actually did a presentation on why the colour purple is so awesome, so believe me when I tell you I’m just a tad obsessed. So these sunglasses were calling out to me! After trying them on, I knew they were the ones that I wanted. It’s like finding that perfect pair of shoes, or that dress that fits just right! It’s just a great feeling.
Now, once you get to know me, you’ll find out that I am a shopaholic and probably always will be! But what I love more than anything is finding a good deal, and these shades were just that, a good deal. Even when I paid for them the sales representative at the Oakley store was more than impressed that they weren’t too expensive. I’ve never actually spent more than 30 dollars on a pair of sunglasses so it was a big step for me to spend as much as I did. So when you find a good deal, jump on it. I also found it pretty interesting how I’ve been to a few malls here in Victoria and I haven’t seen any Oakley stores, and in Vancouver the first mall we go to there’s an Oakley store. It must be a popular thing In Vancouver to wear Oakley’s where as in Victoria they definitely wear more funky kind of glasses. That’s definitely one thing that I love about Victoria, so many unique and creative styles there’s really no telling what people will wear!
