Trends in Sunglasses – Save & Splurge!

February 6, 2018

I ADORE sunglasses … they make such a statement and I always feel glamorous and fabulous when I’m wearing them!

    I can’t keep up with how fast sunglasses trends change. Last year it was all about round lenses, now were back to square and cat eyes! I think I will keep on wearing the styles I bought last year. It’s too expensive to keep buying new styles every year. LOVE that first picture of you. You look awesome in your sunnies.

    I love all of the sunglasses you featured on your post. I have a love/hate relationship with them. Finding sunnies that work on my face frame has been a struggle though recently which different brands making their sunnies specific for certain faces, I have found a pair or two that I wear non stop. I can’t wait to see your updates regarding NYFW. Have fun!

    I am a sunglasses lover too!!! I wear them everyday here in SoCal. I have the entire range of designer frames, and they always fit and serve a purpose, so a good splurge, right ?
