The first time I saw somebody wearing these about a month ago, I really did think it was just a pathetic cry for attention. The girl fit the bill: the too-short t-shirt ‘dress’, the mullet-style over-straightened hair backcombed to frizz, platform boots and fishnets …oh and electric pink Shutter Shades.
A couple of weeks later, I noticed more and more teens with these electric-coloured monsters perched their noses and after some deft googling, I realised that they are considered ‘fashion’ at present thanks to a Mr West. And considering that Ireland is one of the last English-Speaking places to receive new fashions, it scares me to think that these glasses lasted ANY amount of time.
Guess it’s true that money can’t buy taste ….
