Sunglasses ordered!

Last night while perusing Ray Ban sunglass frames with DS (we're both getting prescription sunglasses for driving), I found THE ONES. Without YLF guidance or even a second opinion (other than DS's and the SA's) I pounced on these babies and ordered them. It was LOVE at first try on and knew they were going to be mine.

They are oversized, retro-inspired, tortoise shell and I feel glamorous and very Mad Men in them. It will be a 7-10 days before I get them so you will have to suffer with this stock photo of them in the meantime.

I can hardly wait...

    Those are gorgeous, Shannon!  So glad you found your glasses.  Your happiness factor is going to be through the roof with these!

    Ooo so flattering. I love the suave cool factor!

    Can't go wrong with the Wayfarer. That is ALL I will wear. You will love them, Shannon!

    So glad you approve Angie! I had to laugh at DS on the way home after we ordered and paid...said "you didn't post a keep/return on those Mom - you sure about them?" - lol!

    Here's the ones DS chose, also Wayfarer. Gotta admit he looked VERY handsome in them (although I'm probably slightly biased!).

    Thanks ladies - I'm soooooo excited!

    Hilarious :)

    You and DS have impeccable taste.

    Oh I love these. Retro, cool, and just plain smashing - they are the best.  Good for you!

    Shannon, those are so cool! I love them. DD has Ray Ban eyeglasses so I'm biased too. Can't wait to see them on your pretty face!
  • rae replied 5 years ago
    Yes! Gorgeous! Total retro vibe, love the tortie material, love the way they flare out a bit at the sides. Cannot wait to see these on.
  • Susie replied 5 years ago
    Very cool! I bet they will look smashing on you. And I love the ones your son picked too.

    His comment about the k/r post is too funny! He knows his mama well :)

    I bought prescription Wayfarers in black last year, and adore them. I plan to add another pair in tortoise as soon as I can afford to!

    Oh Shannon these look great, and without seeing them on you... I can see them on you, if you know what I mean.

    I also love the ones DS chose.  Very cool.
