A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to take a trip to Sin City, Lost Wages, Atomic City, yeah you got it Las Vegas !!! Now, whilst over there blowing off some well earned steam and drinking my own weight in over priced alcohol, I took the liberty of killing two birds with the one stone and took along a selection of the finest sunglasses around for this Summer, when it finally arrives. We choose a number of Viva LasVegas’s finest, from in and around the Splendour and luxury of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort, to model these shades to give you a better idea of how they look on a cross section of face shapes, colouring and essentially looks. Take a look and let us know what you think –
