AMW Wears: Fly Shades' Latest Collection

Happy Friday AMW friends, I hope it's a lovely sunny day today as I'll be featuring my latest collection of Fly Shades.  A little bit of background regarding the brand, Mr. AMW and I bought a similar Fly Shades years ago and we marked it as our "couple shades", the glass is interchangeable and we loved it so much we wore it each time we went out!  (aren't we cute nerds?)

Over the years, I do check out Fly Shades' newest collection at their random shops (check my Fly Shades purchase last year HERE) and little did I know that Fly Shades was actually co-owned by my very good friend's husband!  (small world eh?)  Through the years, the brand has broadened its collection and I can definitely spot better quality, better looking, chic designed shades perfect for all ages!

The newest collection isn't an exception, I got the set as a gift from them and I can't seem to pick the favorite as I love them all!

**Note from AMW: sorry but I do not know the names of each pair so numbering them will do for now! :D


 Fly Shades #1 

The shades is quite unique and I love it that it gives a huge "oomph" to my plain, simple outfit!  I actually wore this shades when I tote my Guedez Industria Bag in Desert


Fly Shades #2

This glass may be too round for my taste but once worn, it actually works well on my face shape and it gives a nice classic vibe!  This very round shaped glass reminded me so much of the Women's Marc by Marc Jacobs round sunglasses that was a huge hit! 


Fly Shades #3

This is turning out to be my favorite pair out of the collection that I received.  You know how I realized that?  I actually went to visit the Fly Shades booth again and picked this one and purchased the exact same pair without knowing I already own one!  My oh my!

Fly Shades #4

The Aviator glasses has been a hit for many years and I actually own a Rayban version in black but I'm glad to own something as fancy as this housed on a white frame!  White-framed sunglasses has always been a hit for me as I love the "cool" vibe it exudes! 

Fly Shades #5

Love the unique red color that gives an extra "oomph" to normal-looking aviators.
Shall I give you that: "I don't care how you feel" attitude? *meh*

Fly Shades #6

Another great pair I wouldn't mind wearing on days I want to look mysterious and classy!  The gold side-frame gives a nice touch of class to any outfit! I promise you, even if you wear a simple white tee and plain old jeans!  This spells: "I'M A MILLIONAIRE!" :P

Here are just 2 photos taken using my Fly Shades!

Fly Aviator shades worked so well with my makeup-less face!  I was too lazy to apply any makeup on first day of January and I just went for a simple family lunch so I opted for bare face with my trustee shades!



The price of Fly Shades ranges around Php250.00-400.00.  Again, as long as you take care of them, they may last you years!  Please LIKE Fly Shades on Facebook to get updated on their newest collection!

Which one among the 6 pairs I featured in this post is your favorite?

  4. I like #6. Depending on your face frame, it usually it usually flatters your features/face frame.

  7. I have to visit FLY soon! I have a lot of FLY glasses. Most, if not all, of my shades are from Fly, and they've been with me for years now These new ones are so worth checking out! Not too fond of the round one but I like the other designs :D

    1. How many FLY shades do you currently own? Naku better check out their new collections, I visited their stall and I nearly went wild! Super daming magandang designs

  8. I have a pair of Fly shades that's been around for more than two years, so yeah, longevity boils down to how well you take care of your shades.

    I find it cute that you and Aya own a lot of shades! I only have two. I'm not really a collector; I just use one pair until I grow tired of it. Haha! I'm currently on an aviators phase.

    1. Yes they do, but I'm just not sure how good the UV sun protection they have as we can't really tell! But once I asked, they told me yes :D

      Delete
    2. Thanks for answering Nikki :) kung ok lang another question pa, what are your recommendations for shades that have UV protection? I get out of the office kasi at 1pm and I want to delay wrinkles specially sa eye area. Some sunblocks are too heavy for the eye area kasi

      Delete
    3. Kahit heavy ang feel ng sunscreen for you, you really CANNOT skip it. Have you tried Neutrogena? or Nivea? Both for the face ng brands na yon not too heavy naman on skin! And aside from sunglasses, you may use umbrella! Ako I really depend on sunscreen and sunglasses kasi tamad din akong magpayong

      Delete
    4. lagi akong neakakawala ng payong lol :) pro yes Im using Neutrogena ultra sheer ok naman sya for the face pero pag nilalagay ko sya sa eye are (lids and under eye) medyo heavy yung feeling.

      Delete
    5. If that's the case, use an eye cream with SPF instead of using a regular SPF on undereye area. Sometimes that area is very sensitive.

      Delete
    6. Thanks Nikki. Any reco? :)

      Delete
    7. sad to say, you really have to try them! Try to join Sampleroom.ph as sometimes they have samples on eye creams, you just have to pay for shipping yon nga lang mabilis maubos! have to be fast!

      Delete
  10. oo nga lagi akong nauunahan sa sample room. Thank you Nikki :) Enjoy your pregnancy, malapit na :)
