Sunglass Season

The Season for Sunglasses is here at last!

Ever since LASIK, I have been obsessed with sunglasses the way others are with shoes. I once saw a picture of Elton John’s sunglass closet (which was the size of our first starter home,) and I thought, “Hmmmm…this is probably what Heaven looks like.” 

I love, love, love sunglasses.

I can’t really bother with the inexpensive shades, not because I’m a snob – nor trying to be, but because without fail, I will lose, sit and break the ones I score on sale. The ones that ost me a small car payment? I’ll protect the those ones like a newborn baby. I’ve also convinced myself that by “collecting” sunglasses, I am investing and protecting my vision. Just humor me, please. And it’s not like I live somewhere it rains 90% of the time. I live in Southern California where it’s so bright, that I walked into my daughter’s room today and left seeing spots. 

It’s hard for me to pick favorites, but I’ll tell you a some of my observations since I think I own at least one (or two,) pairs of every designer brand imaginable. The best made IMO with the best protection are the experience I’ve had with Tom Ford eyewear. I wear them every single day, and they have held up beautiful. A brand that I’m still on the fence about? Dior. I have one pair that have been complete rockstars, and another that are so flimsy I still kick myself every time I go to take them out of the case. Oh, and another brand that really impressed me is by IVI Vision. Wow, totally stylish and made very, very well.

    Love the square Tom Fords. I have a pair of Coach sunglasses I paid a small arm for and then had prescription lenses put in them, which only cost a hand! lol They’re worth it though.

    I am the same way. I love my sun glasses. I get a few new pairs every season.

    My husband is like that. He is forever losing his sunglasses. He drops them somewhere. He sits on them. He drives over them. I can’t tell you how much we have spent on sunglasses for him. I have to wear glasses so I’ve got transistions on mine.

    My husband had Lasik two years ago and LOVES it. He keeps trying to get me to do it, but I am still a little worried about it. I am a wuss like that. So I wear Rx sunglasses. I miss having 5 pairs of sunglasses to choose from when I wore contacts though! These sunglasses are so cute!
