YES! Love those. My favs were a pair of Kate Spades I got on Overstock but I lost them at All Points West last summer. I think I left them in the porta-potty in an attempt not to have them fall in the nastiness. Sigh.

Oh Yes, I love my Arnets, Costas, and RayBans!  My dog ate my DG’s but I would love another pair!

I can’t afford designer ones, but I do love the big frame ones like that! Fiance says they make me look like a bug, but hey, it’s practical. Not only can I evade the paparazzi, but no sun can leak around the edges of the lenses since they cover half my face.

Yup, I have a sickness!  And I think at $128 those are sooooo worth it!  I really like them.  I actually went to Bloomingdale’s the other day and they’re having a sale on sunglasses.  There were dior aviators for only $150!  I had to get a pair but other designers were doing the same thing, even Fendi.  You should go, but only the one on 59th, a.k.a the best one!

See, my sunglasses are all prescription so I only get a new pair every year or two.  I wish I could new ones more often but regular sunglasses don’t do it for me.  Sure, I’m not squinting, but I can’t tell what I’m looking at anyways!

YES!  I worked for Oliver Peoples for a couple of years, so I am pretty loyal to them, but Barton-Perreira and Dita are awesome too!!!  I am seriously obsessed……

Yeppers. I own a pair of Coach sunglasses that I wear all the time but I ALMOST bought a pair of Kate Spades just like that. Mine are a tortishell brown though.

I wear sunglasses ALL the time. My eyes are light blue and crazy sensitive to the sun (i blame a summer of lifeguarding and being forced to wear shades all the time) so they’re a pretty constant accessory for me. I only have 2 really great pairs but they are in constant rotation.

I need some, too! I got my first big girl pair at Stein Mart so they really weren’t that expensive, but they were Michael Kors (chosen b/c we had the same initials, haha i’m lame). However, they are SMASHED – i dont know how how it happened, but they’re in my car broken to pieces. I am looking for decent ladies aviators – anyone know of any place for me to get some for under 20 bucks? Bonus if you can find some with my new intials, MelissaBegins 😉

@MelissaBegins, try Ebay, although kinda tricky. I usually pick mine up at TJMaxx or Ross really randomly. Sometimes they just have GOOD stuff!

@Melissabegins: cheap sunglasses are actually really bad for your eyes. I honestly cant remember the exact reason why but it has something to do with the lenses reflecting more light into your eyes. Sunglasses are one of the few things you should really invest in!

(and I am a total hypocrite because I wear cheapie Target aviators right now because my Prada and DG sunglasses both broke.. the downside of working summer camp :/ )

My Kate Spades were seriously my most favorite pair of sunglasses ever. I wore them for three years before they got too scratched up to wear 🙁  I went everywhere looking for a pair just like them, but alas…nothing.  I bought another Kate Spade pair to replace them, but they’re a bit too big for my tastes.  Oh well.  They’re still really pretty and durable.

I am curious since I am following this post — Would you say that expensive sunglasses last longer than cheaper sunglasses in terms of regular wear and tear/scratching? I get new sunglasses maybe twice a year because they get scratched in my car or in my purse. I am not the most careful about taking care of them, but I don’t throw them around, either.

@babyboo

What’s bad about cheap sunglasses is that they typically don’t have UV protection.  The lenses are tinted, blocking light but not harmful UV rays.  So your pupils open up thinking it’s all good, but they are opening up to get more damage!
