Sunglass Hut floating pop-up store

 Have you ever felt like shopping on the water?... Well now you can... Literally on the water! Eye wear giant, Sunglass Hut is the first Australian retailer to produce a pop up floating store, to kick start the Summer season. Tonight, marked the launch of the four day store, at Campbell's Cove wharf on the Sydney Harbour. Forget about looking at four walls whilst shopping, people now have the opportunity to take in the beautiful harbour scenery, whilst searching for the perfect pair of shades from the best well-known fashion brands. Sunglass hut's best sellers are available, as well a 150 piece collection, which are not available anywhere in Australia until February 2012. I have been lusting over the Prada 'Baroque' sunglasses for a while now, and I was thrilled that I finally got to try them on! This was a great thing, yet also bad, as of course this has made my urge to purchase them even stronger! The over-sized round Prada's are inspired by 'Baroques,' which sculpt the temples. Also, available are the amazing glasses from the Dolce&Gabbana's, lace collection. Coming in a number of different styles, from cat eye, to 50's inspired shapes, to classics, each pair has been handcrafted with actual lace inside the frame. Not only were guests filled with excitement with all the exclusive eye wear styles (including new MiuMiu!);  the Grammy award winning, Jason Mraz, took to the floating stage, providing the entertainment for the evening. The unfortunate, drizzly Sydney weather, did not stop guests from embracing the Summer spirit, with wait staff dressed in board shorts serving gourmet sausages and frozen cocktails and beach-inspired decor, such as striped deck chairs, umbrellas and a floor covered in sand.... I should of taken note when the invitation strictly said to wear flat shoes....whoops!
