New Shades

February 20, 2012

Friends, meet my new sunglasses.

I’ve got to tell you a story about these little guys so you will have some sense of *just how much* I wanted them.  I went to the mall last weekend in search of the perfect cat-eye shades and decided to wander into Sunglass Hut to see what they had to offer.  I spotted these Ralph Lauren beauties and knew I had to have them.  They fit my narrow face perfectly and they are (my fave) tortoise shell!  I was hemming and hawing over the purchase because I am not very good at keeping track of my sunglasses or taking good care of them.  Pushed over the edge by the fact that I have some gift cards to spend from work, I decided I would order the gift cards for Sunglass Hut and come back later in the week to get the sunglasses.  I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking the story goes on to say I went back and they were sold out of the sunglasses, right?  WRONG.  I went back on Thursday night and the entire STORE was gone.  I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone.  Walked into the mall entrance right by Sunglass Hut and literally the store. was. gone.  After a bit of a rage moment and discussion with the girl working at the Macy’s Sunglass Hut kiosk, I found out they’re remodeling and won’t be back open for a few months.  Luckily, my rage has dissipated and I purchased the sunglasses online to have them later this week.  All is well in the land of Lauren, once again.

ANYWAY back to the fashion:  since I ordered these new sunglasses, I am really looking forward to sunnier and warmer days.  Here’s the perfect, simple, classy outfit I’d love to wear with my new sunglasses:

      I think it is still coming soon – I might be willing to spend the $60 on it because its so perfect for summer, dressed up or down!

    That looks very cute and I can totally picture it on you! The glasses are awesome!!! I bet they look great on, too. I LOVE my RL sunglasses. They protect my eyes nicely from the sun, esp after having Lasik. Enjoy your new accessory!!!!

    oh, love the sunglasses, I’ll have to see if I can find them in Canadia. I’m on the hunt for a new pair… I have a small and oddly shaped face so it’s never easy :)

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      They’re free shipping and returns if you purchase online, in case you really like them but can’t find them in Canada!
