Sweet Baby Ray-Bans

After years of buying, breaking and losing cheap sunglasses I have finally curved and splurged for a real “adult” pair of sunnies. It has been said that I have an odd face shape, to which I reply guilty as charged:

QT.

 Maybe its not completely out of the ordinary, but it certainly does not agree with most sunglasses. Blame it on my overly expressive eyebrows, which pop up like a jack-in-the-box above every pair, or blame it on my skinny, bony nose; whatever it is, I am limited in my sunglasses choices. Aviators are the one style that don’t make me look like a complete mental case. And who makes the most sexy, classic aviators on the planet? Ray-Ban.


So, I started my hunt for the perfect, and affordable, pair of Ray-Ban aviators. I ventured into the little side alley that is {Nordstrom’s} sunglasses section and immediately had several pairs shoved into my face. 
It was all too much. 
{Sunglass Hut} was my next stop. High end, good quality glasses I thought. Oh.my.word. I forgot that people pay $300+ for a pair of sunnies. AHH. 

“Oh, no I think I like this pair better,” 

I seemed to repeat like a broken record as I clutched the cheapest pair of glasses I could find. At $145, these glasses were on the low end. And they were the most perfect pair. I had fallen in love with the classic Ray-Ban RB3025 58″ frames in gold/green. 


However, I was not ready to pay nearly $200 for a pair of sunnies that I would only get a few months of wear out of, thanks to the darn Seattle weather.



I took my search to the next best place I knew, the internet. 
Its scary looking for high end designer things for less on the internet, how do you know what is the real deal and what isn’t? I stumbled across a youtube video of a girl talking about Ray-Ban sizing, and she just happened to work for a sunglasses company called {fast sunglass}. She seemed legit, I trusted that she wasn’t showing off a bunch of fakes. So, I decided to give it a try.



Their website is pretty easy to navigate, and I quickly found my dream pair again. $123. I gawked. And I soon found a coupon code to make the deal even sweeter, SUMMER12 will get you and extra 10% off. I ended up paying $116 for the whole deal, including shipping and handling. Making my online sunnies $31 less than I would have paid in stores.
I was beyond excited to receive them, but still trepidatious that this might not be the real deal.



As soon as they arrived I searched videos on how to tell real Ray-Bans from fakes. Everything, and I mean everything, has checked out. I love these sunglasses more than any other pair I have ever owned and I am so thankful that I could get them at a more affordable price. Now, all I need is a Vera Bradley sunglasses case and a Lilly Pulitzer croakie and I will be the ultimate sunglass princess.

What sort of sunnies do you wear? Are you as picky and limited with sunnies as I am?

  • Oh my goodness, bless this post! I have been eyeballing a certain Tory Burch pair at Sunglass Hut, and I'm like you I like cheapies, mainly because I have a notorious habit of losing mine in the lake! So I have a few from Target and F21 but I saw these TB ones and I am in lust!! I just found them on this site you posted! Yay!

  • I'm so glad you finally got a pair! I have the classic black wayfarer. but I'm been lusting for a pair of tortoise ones for the longest time! I think it may be time.

    Great review! I enjoyed it!

  • Ahhhhhhh I'm in love. They are amazing!
    This is so weird that I found your blog and read this, my brother literally asked me an hour ago to see if I could find him some Ray-Bans online that weren't fake but that were as cheap as possible! Ha, I'm failing at finding any so far.
    I wear fake Gucci ones from Spain 😉

  • I love my Rayban Aviators! I used to work at Sunglass Hut (for a VERY short time) and it was amazing to me that people would come in and buy like three pairs of $200 sunglasses! I do have a slight obsession with sunnies but I have never bought more than one pair in a day and I always look for coupons/a good deal! You should try Nordstrom Rack, Off Fifth, or Last Call Neiman Marcus next time! They carry tons of designer sunglasses for much cheaper. Usually under $100!
