$25 Ray Bans and Reality

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

My apologies to those who read my blog. It's been a lean summer. I have barely shopped and when I have been shopping, it's been for household items on a major Dollar Tree budget. I would love it if I had the seemingly endless disposable income of other bloggers, but alas, that is not my reality. So I'm back to share my big score of the summer - Ray Ban wayfarers from the online yard sale that I belong to. They were only $25 and sold to me by a woman who presumably has a disposable income, as she sold Ray Bans for $25. No matter, I needed a new pair of sunglasses desperately, and these are classic frames that will look great for years to come (presuming they don't get lost or sat on). So grateful to have found them!

I love presents. Who doesn't, right? But presents are super awesome to me, because my family doesn't exchange gifts anymore and hasn't for years. I basically become a four year old on their birthday whenever I am at the receiving end of an unexpected surprise. So when I got a pair of surprise frames from Coastal as part of their Style Ambassador program, I was ecstatic.

The frames are matte, purple, yet kind of clear. Super modern and fresh, and perfect for summer. Like all of my other Coastal frames, they are also super comfortable! 

Although I have worn them with bright colors and neutrals, I adore how they look with my new favorite cream romper from Forever 21 (still sold out online). Aren't they fun?

A huge thank you to my friend Tammy for taking these photos, and a huge congratulations to her on her new job. Yay!
