Hey lovelies! I hope you all had a delightful Mother's Day weekend. I flew home to visit my family and chill out for the first time in months. Needless to say, I am now back with a vengeance!
I wanted to blog about my first pair of "high end" sunglasses. I've never been one to invest in a pair because I tend to lose or break them by the end of summer. But then what's the point in that? I figured it's not worth spending lots of money going through one after another without a second thought. It makes more sense for me to buy one that I could use year round ;) And I have for the last 2 months now!
I tried the original Ray Ban sunnies but I didn't really like the thick frames. The lenses tilted too far into my face and didn't look or feel comfortable. The new wayfarers are a tad smaller and have a slightly thinner frame that fits my face a lot better while still retaining its signature look. I also like the subtle design of the frames, the nice engraving of the logo on both sides of the arm, and the classic timeless look that is the epitome of the brand.
I think the new design fits people with petite faces. And when you smile the glasses don't get pushed up in a weird position. At first I was hesitant to spend upwards of $100+ on a pair but once I bought it and wore it a few times, you can literally see the difference in quality and construction. The plastic frames are much sturdier and really well made to sit on the face better. The open and closing of the heavy duty metal hinges also feel smooth. The tint in the lenses are great and provide real comfort on sunny days. Mine is in the tortoise color and it feels great. My eyes never feel strained and I never get the feeling that the tint is too dark/not dark enough.
Warranty: I imagine these will last for years if taken care of properly but if anything gets loose or damaged, I could take it to any Nordstrom's and get it repaired at no cost. I believe you can also send it to Ray Ban as well and it's all covered in their warranty.
Do you have a preferred brand of anything (doesn't have to be sunglasses) either though a childhood story or some nostalgic event?
