Pre Boxing Day Shopping: Bottega Veneta Antique Brass Aviator Sunglasses

Who needs to wait till boxing day when you can start shopping sales on X'mas day? Especially with extra discounts awaiting!

Takashimaya Department Store in Ngee Ann City loves having extra 10% discount promotion for their cardmembers regularly. This year, from Christmas day till 30 Dec, the promotion kicks in yet again! This is the best chance to get more mileage for your bucks (sale or non sale shopping) or buy non-sale items at 10% off. I did the latter... a pair of non-sale Bottega Veneta Antique Brass Aviator Sunglasses which I have been eyeing since a few weeks back is now mine, sans the full retail price:-P Hurray!

I even used SGD$140 worth of vouchers to further reduce the already 10% discounted price. Always happy to bag a better deal!

Made of antique brass and 'tortise shell' plastic temples, the big brown gradient lens are ideal for looking 'Anna Wintour' or just simple sun protection. There are lots of fine detailing which we can never expect any less of Bottega Veneta. The front of the aviators spots a brass strip of intricately moulded 'woven texture' that connects the lens, reinforcing the Bottega Veneta brand with even spelling the name. The temples also finds 2 brass rings and metal studs at the ends. However, I am most loving the butterfly detail on the insides of the temples adjacent to the subtle Bottega Veneta branding. Definitely a pair of shades that is unique in its own design and luxurious!

Masculine, sophisticated but most importantly, the brown tones and classic style are totally matching to my new Prada Bag:-P

Retail price: SGD $720. Where to buy: Bottega Veneta Boutique in Takashimaya, Ngee Ann City

I can't believe the sunglasses case looks as good as their knot clutches.

Maybe you can use it as a double duty clutch!
