I normally avoid buying sunglasses, for a few reasons. First, I lose them. Often. Second, losing them is really painful when the sunglasses cost $40. I’ve had this experience a few times, and then I just gave up on getting more.
I know that $40 glasses are hardly expensive, and that people can (and do!) shell out $100 or even more for their stunner shades. But not me. $40 is my limit, because that seems to be the price range where I can still find cute shades. Anything below that can get pretty dicey.
But I’m wrong! Have you heard about Sunglass Warehouse? They have VERY current sunglasses for men and women, and not a single pair is over $20. Seriously! I was so surprised when I started browsing their collection. They have so many styles that are, shall we say, inspired by designer looks and for half of what I thought I had to fork over for anything decent.
Now I’m back to wearing sunglasses! I still need to work on not losing them, but should it happen, it won’t be quite as painful. Since I normally like to try on sunglasses before making a purchase, I really like that Sunglass Warehouse has a section of their site dedicated to choosing sunglasses for your face shape. I’m currently sporting these over-the-top shades in brown and cream. And you know what? I LOVE THEM. They can take my boring, thrown together “mom” look that I so often sport and make me suddenly look and feel just a tad bit FABULOUS. Simply put, they are fun. And for $13.56, they bring a whole lot of flair to my wardrobe for just a little bit of green.
Sunglass Warehouse also offers a great selection of kids’ sunglasses! I saw several frames that would be so stinkin’ precious on any one of my nieces!
