These are the sunglasses I picked up in the airport on my way to New York and Connecticut for Christmas! I’m seriously obsessed with them — and I can’t wait to show you the other pair (aviators) I picked up at the same time! The shape is actually a lot like my Chanel pair — but for about 97% less. This pair was $16, and the second pair was $8!
I love finding inexpensive pieces that I wear to death, because unlike my investment purchases, I’m never afraid to carry them around. If I lose my $16 sunglasses? Oh well, buy a new pair (or three). If I lose my $500 sunglasses? Get ready for some serious hysterics.
Most of this outfit is actually Christmas presents! The top was a gift from my parents and the bracelet (which you can’t see that well in these photos, sorry) was an amazing deal I scooped up for myself. I’d been looking at almost the same style for $250, and I found this one by the same designer for $39!
In other news: I am in a serious technology funk. I’ve dealt with a malfunctioning video card on my laptop, an erased backup hard drive, a lost flash drive, and a virus — ALL in the last week. So I’ve basically been stuck in a crazy whirlwind of trying to back up all my old photos and book drafts in preparation for a complete wipe of my laptop, and I’m tentatively hopeful that things will be back on track soon.
