...I dropped my Prada glasses on the weekend and one of the lenses came out and smashed.

Can you re-order them?

hi

You can just take them in to any optician and they will redo the lenses for you. I go to Satwa as it's cheaper.

I smashed lenses in a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo sun geps, took them to Magrabi in MoE and fixed them for 200dh.

Actually I went to the cinema instead of watching the game but I did watch it later on - we weren't so bad, just crap at the back.

did you see some of your lads threw a flare into the Newcastle crowd? A couple of families nearly got badly hurt.

I'm not exactly helping with this post but here goes...

Have you looked online? Maui Jim have a thing online were you print off a form and post your bins to a service centre in Deira and they fix them for you. Maybe worth seeing if Prada do the same.

On a separate note, I highly recommend Maui Jim sunglasses. Fantastic.

Yes.

Or rather very Jumeirah Jane

Personally, I think most blokes can't go wrong with a pair of mirrored Oakleys.

didn't you know the fashion world is having a 90s revival, darling?

http://thefashiontag.wordpress.com/2...-the-90s-back/

or

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010s_in_fashion

Beginning in Spring 2012, members of the Skater subculture wear designer sportswear and streetwear rather than the functional hardcore punk and grunge clothing of the 1990s, or the brightly-colored scene fashions of the early 2010s. Common apparel includes Snapback hats, Ralph Lauren Polo,Diamond Supply Co. apparel, Air Jordan apparel, The Hundreds T-Shirts, Obey bar logo T-Shirts and snapbacks, Baseball jackets, Hoodies, Hollister khaki shorts, graphic T-shirts, Vans, Chucks, Levi's Slim Straight jeans,[110] Nike skate shoes and T-Shirts, DGK, Adidas Skateboarding and Originals apparel and shoes, and LRG apparel.[111] Their favorite vendors are Foot Locker and Zumiez. Preferred sneakers include Retro Air Jordans, Nike Foamposites or Nike SB Dunks, while preferred accessories are Oakley sunglasses, Beats By Dre and Skullcandy headphones, Ray-Ban Aviators, and Nixon watches,.[112]
get with it, grandad
