From Nada to Prada

I have never ..ever...ever owned a pair of designer sunglasses. I love the pairs I find for $10.00 at Forever 21 and I have major issues keeping hold of glasses..I somehow lose or break them. My last favorite pair I owned, I left at the bank counter and by the time I returned, someone else had made them their own. Even though they were cheap, I was bummed. And if they were a designer pair, I would have not been able to forgive myself for being so aloof! So alas, I would never personally spend the money on a pair of designer sunnies in fear of the aforementioned occurring.

However...this is the time of year, the fiance and I exchange ideas for our wish list for Christmas. I told him I have been eyeing a Michael Kors bag (Hamilton in cognac). He almost laughed and told me he refuses to get me a purse for Christmas because he thinks I have an abundance as is. In comes the same line I have used in the past..well..but..compared to a lot of girls my collection is rather small! (Such a childish line! I know!) He wasn't budging. Fine..point taken. That one, I will have to save for and get on my own.

The other day, as we were walking out of Nordies, I jokingly threw on a pair of Prada sunglasses and sucked my cheeks in and puckered my lips and said "How do you think I look dahhhhlinngggg?" Well, apparently he liked them, because he said "Now those I would get you"..well alright then.. :D I found them on Amazon with a smaller price tag than the department store cost, so that is a plus too! We have never been the couple that does crazy surprise gifts for each other..we both know what we want and pretty much go by that..I know..kinda lame..I was always the kid that snuck in my parents' closet and snooped ..I'm terrible with surprises! But this year, I have a very fun gift in store for him. I think he deserves it, especially given all the wedding blabber and planning that this year has brought.

Here they are:

I love how artsy they look. And of course, they are oversized. I have a big head, so I like big sunglasses ;) If I do end up with these, I will have to be extra, super careful with them!
Do you have any sunglasses on your wish list that you have been drooling over?


  1. I love these! They would look great on you Katie!

  2. Oh my gosh, I LOVE these! They would look so good on you! (I agree with her up there^) haha. I got one pair of designer sunglasses once and then I saw a GUY wearing them...and I realized they were boy ones! Now I don't wear them. hahaha.

  3. I adore those sunglasses.

    I would love for you to stop by my blog and enter my jewelry giveaway and check out my latest style column for Lauren Conrad's site!

  4. I love designer sunnies they just make you feel like a celebrity no matter what you're wearing hahah

  5. @Noelle & @Ali: Thanks! I think I "need" them now! LOL.. You should still wear your sunnies even though they are guys! I'm sure you look cute regardless!

    @Fash Boulevard..i will def. enter the jewelry giveaway and check out your blog!

    @Stephanie..I agree! It's like you could be in yoga pants and throw them on to run an errand and all of a sudden feel glam!

  6. stunning piece! Love how there are so bold, you just cant miss them, if you get a sec id love to hear your thoughts on my latest post:


  7. that's so cute! If you put them on and he's so taken by how great you look in them enough to purchase them- let him buy you them! I can picture how superb you will look rocking 'em!

    And I'm with you on the designer sunglasses. I have a few pairs (all gifts) and I just make a rule to never, ever take them out when I'm drinking. Because they will be lost. I think sunglasses are a great department to have extremely cheap and very expensive- just know when to wear which!

  8. I am in sunglasses 24/7, okay not really but you know what I mean. I put them on when I go get the mail, that's how bad the sun is here. If you get these, & lose them, I will be very sad! These are gorgeous! I have two "designer" once, those are my babies, one pair is 10 years old, still in pretty good shape.
