...or were you shocked to see that sunglasses are so freakin' expensive these days? Last time we bought a pair of Oliver Peoples, they were at $300, which seemed like an awful lot at the time (two years ago, we think). Now shades regularly cost $350 plus. Don't you people know we're in a recession?
While Oliver is still our go to guy, it's hard to imagine shelling out $350 for these shades, good looking as the above pair are.
And as excited as we were for the launch of Jimmy Choo sunglasses, at $420 a pop, we'll just stick with his shoes.
Ditto the relaunch of the Balenciaga shades that were pulled out of the fashion vault this year. Love the '70s over sized frames. Hate the $330 price tag.
Consider you could buy these Isaac Mizrahi shades from Target for $17.99
AND these Simply Vera ones at Kohl's for $21 and still have enough left over for a plane ticket to Miami. Well, you'll have a hard time convincing us that something we're likely to lose or break is worth it.
