Classic Sunglasses

Ray-Ban Aviators

Of all the millions and zillions of sunnies out there, I always gravitate towards these two unadorned classics: Ray-Ban Aviators and (new) Wayfarers. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect pair of cat-eyes to round out the set πŸ™‚

Update: While I still haven’t found cat-eye sunglasses that I love, I did add this pair of beach-inspired mirrored aviators to my small collection.

I’d love to know: What are your favorite types of sunglasses?


  1. I’ve been wanting a pair of nice black aviators. I normally like anything that frames my face well. This post made me want a new pair sunglasses that much more, ugh, thanks, LOL!!!

      You’re welcome πŸ™‚ Go ahead and get them, Tia! The classic shape never goes out of style, plus it seems like the price goes up every year… Has anyone else noticed that?

  2. I found the perfect pair of cat-eye eye glasses on the Coastal website. They have cat-eye sun glasses as well. But I found the perfect pair of steve madden glasses a few days ago. The slightly oversized lenses frame my face perfectly.

  3. My favorite pair is a pair of Ray-Bans that I found at Loehmann’s for $80! Recently, one of the lenses was cracked while I was traveling. I have not had the heart to check the price of getting a new lens or buying a new pair. I love them so much! πŸ™

      Ray-Ban for $80?! Great price! If you love the frames and they’re discontinued, it just might be worth it to replace the lens; if you’re able to find the same/similar shape, it might be more cost effective to get a new pair. Sunglass Hut offers $20 off coupons every now and then. I think they send out birthday coupons as well, if you sign up for their mailing list.

  4. Thanks for the tips! I have to do something soon because there is nothing cute about me squinting my way around for the rest of the summer.

    • Update, update, update! I found a new pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses at Loehmann’s for $99! They actually had a few pairs that were an additional 50% off. Unfortunately, those did not look as good on me as the ones that I bought. I am ok with it though. No more squinting for me!!

  5. I like your wayfarers. I’m on a sunglass ban. My daughter keeps breaking them….. Ughhhh

      I completely understand! Do you think she’d leave your sunglasses alone if you bribe her with give her a few pairs of sunnies of her own? On second thought, she’ll probably still want mommy’s πŸ™‚
