Classy Sunglasses

~ Posted on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at 6:03 PM ~

I started wearing glasses when I was 12 years old and coming from a lower class income family, we could not afford to get expensive or branded glasses. As long as it serves the purposes of making me see clearly and cost cheap, then it is good enough. Back then, there's no such thing as buying glasses according to your face frame and so on.

And then when I started working and could afford better glasses, I did get myself one of those UV protection glasses since I work in the IT line, but I am still skeptical and hesitant with getting sunglasses. I mean,  to me, sunglasses is a nice to have accessories, not a necessity. Back then it's either you get a clip-on sunglasses (which I did once) or get a separate sunglasses with prescription (which I never did) and that is expensive (for me).

Until now, I've never own a sunglasses in my life (except for that clip-on one that I mentioned) though I am curious and often throw the occasional glances of curiosity towards those designer sunglasses on display in the optical eyewear shops.

Nowadays, there are so many types of sunglasses available. Just when I thought that it's not easy to shop for a sunglasses online, I came across, a website that sells many types of sunglasses, lenses and heck, the coolest thing is they even have this virtual try-on widget on their website which allows you to 'try' their product virtually. You just need to upload a photo of yours and go on a frenzy try-outs!

What do you think?

So what are your thoughts on sunglasses and will you buy them online?

I never buy expensive sunglasses b/c I am so hard on them!!

TY for the sweet well wishes on Ailia's arrival!


I have only one sunglasses that I've been using for many years. I'm always so tempted to get a new one also when I walk past an optical shop. But the price always made me change my mind. Anyway, I don't think I will buy online because I think I prefer to try it on before buying.

I love sun glasses. Mr. Randolph has the glasses that change with light and he loves them.

Hi Kayla!
We have that too but it's for our normal spectacles. Didn't know there's something like that for sunglasses!
