The Words

serious about sunnies

serious about sunnies


I have never, in my 25 years of living, had a “nice” pair of sunglasses. Unless you count Target sunglasses “nice”, which I refuse to do anymore after my 6th pair broke after only a few wears. “Cheap” is the word I would probably use; and “frustrating” because yes, I love Target sunglasses. But they have turned out to be a ROYAL waste of money. So wouldn’t it make sense to buy one, (two, or maybe three), REALLY nice pairs of sunglasses that you will wear forever? Classics, I would say, with REAL quality (and maybe a lifetime guarantee… :)) Yes, it makes sense. So this Spring, I will be getting REAL serious about sunnies. Im talking Karen Walker SUPER DUPER serious. I’ll start saving now…

    Everyone has a pai but I seriously love my rayban wayfarers. Those and these amazing LV ones I’m still shocked my mom let me get… But I bought them both the summer I graduated high school & since I’ve gotten a few other shades but I always turn back to those ones. I love them! I really like the illesteva Leonardo ones you show!
