Stunner Shades On

I've already written my ode to winter so think of this as my ode to summer, kind of.
You know something we are obsessed with here in the L.A.I.D. household?  Sunglasses.  Seriously Jimmy has a sick addiction to Oakley glasses and buys at least one pair a year.  As a matter of fact, his wedding gift to me was a pair of Juicy Couture shades that I just ADORE!  So much so that I haven't even bought new sunglasses since, yeah I've been sporting the same sunnies for over 2 years now and I don't care.  Check it!

I mean would you even bother to buy glasses if you had these?  I had always wanted aviators but could never find a pair that fit my face right {Ray Bans look TERRIBLE on me} and these were just too perfect, I knew they had to be mine.  Thanks to my {then NEW} husband and his obsession for sunglasses they are mine, all mine. He knows me so well!
Speaking of glasses, I have pretty good vision and have no need for eyeglasses but I always wanted them, always.  I thought they looked cute and, most importantly, I thought they looked smart.  I guess that's one of those, "you always want what you don't have" kind of things.  Like how girls with straight hair want curly and vice versa.  I went through the same thing with braces but then I actually got braces and was not happy about it.  See what happens when you get what you ask for?  Not always what it's cracked up to be.
In college I had started getting headaches and I was convinced it was because my eyes were going bad {yay!!!} and bought a pair of eyeglasses online {you know because I was far too embarrassed to buy them in store seeing as I didn't really need them}.  I got them in the most brown-eye flattering shade of purple and I had to admit they looked pretty snazzy.  But?  They were a slight prescription and to my disappointment my headaches weren't from my eyes, it was from diet coke.  Sads.  Again, you can't always get what you want.
However, the whole wearing glasses without a prescription trend is now becoming quite popular so this! just! might! be! my! time! to wear glasses and not feel like a tool and give myself a headache from blurred vision in my unnecessary prescription ones.
So what's all this babble about anyway?  Well I just found out about and they have prescription {and non} glasses AND sunglasses at 110% lowest price guarantee!  Even better? They have brand names like Coach, Nike, and Lacoste!  And because I love you and they know it {to the tune of I'm Sexy and I Know It} they are offering a discount to all L.A.I.D. readers!  Holler!

How cool is that? You better believe I'm scouring their site looking for the perfect stunner shades for this summer. I mean, after all, it's been 2 years since I've had a new pair, right?!
You're welcome!


  1. I love sunglasses but I'm so picky about mine, I normally buy a new pair every year and then wear them all year long.

  2. Tell you what... you can have my inability to see clear and I will pass along all of the cute glasses that I refuse to wear (including the cute purple Coach glasses I HAD to have and have been worn twice). Deal?

  3. Love your sunglasses! I have a dolce and gabanna pair that I've had for a few years. I've had to wear glasses since 3rd grade. Got contacts in 7th and don't ever wear my glasses.

  4. Those sunglasses are SO cute on you and the perfect shape! I wouldn't get new ones either!

  5. Score! Thanks for the fab deal!

  6. I got some Prada shades in NYC two years ago and L O V E them so much, I haven't even thought about cheating on them with a newer pair... until now... Thanks for the fab deal!

  7. I need new eyeglasses and new sunglasses. :)

  8. haha greg got me a pair of aviators when we got married too. in 08. and theyre still the only ones i wear!

  9. I love your glasses! I have a pair of Aviaters too! They are ALL I wear. But mine are just a cheap pair that I paid like $6 for at Dots. But...I LOVE THEM!
