Item Spotlight: Tom Ford Cat Eye Frames (FT5189)
When you buy something designer, which shouldn’t happen very often if you’re a normal girl like me, you receive the item in a surprisingly cute package. You’re not used to such treatment – It comes in a box, in another box in a paper bag. A little shiny card in the case thanks you for purchasing this genuine item. But does all this packaging add to the value of the item itself? Helllll ya. If fashion isn’t about the packaging, then i don’t know what is.
I’m sitting there in my apartment wearing spectacles (pretentious, much?), completely content with my new purchase, and then this commercial by L’Oreal Paris featuring supermodel Doutzen Kroes comes on. She owns it in those Tom Ford’s Nikita frames!
I should have seriously tried those on…oh well.
