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!

    They are gorgeous Shannon!  Can't wait to see them on you.

    Ooo so flattering. I love the suave cool factor!
  • Angie replied 4 years ago
    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 4 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 4 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!
  • Raisin replied 4 years ago
    These look great, I think you will love them!

    Can't wait to see you model them for us. These look great!

    Your brown skin shinin' in the sun 
    You got that hair slicked back and those wayfarers on, baby

    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.
