Flashback Summer: New Shades from GlassesUSA

I'm one of those people that never buys nice sunglasses.  I get those cheap, $10 glasses, and I wear them for a few months.  They get scratched up because I just throw them in my purse, and my most recent pair are so foggy-lensed and rickety that they barely stay on my face!

I SHALL NEVER GO BACK TO SUCH SUNGLASSES AGAIN.

I was offered a pair of complementary sunglasses by GlassesUSA, and I didn't really think there would be a huge difference in quality because, come on, sunglasses are sunglasses, right?

Well, I will admit I was wrong.  The sunglasses I picked, "Miranda" in blue-turquoise, are way nicer than the bargain sunglasses I've been buying.  They're thicker plastic with sturdier hinges, and they even come with a fancy heavy-duty case that I can throw in my purse without fearing for the lenses.  (They also come in a beige-pink combo!)

GlassesUSA is not a specifically "retro" glasses site, but they have several styles that are appropriate for vintage looks.  They also have the ability to put prescription lenses in any of the glasses or sunglasses frames, too, so that's a perk for any of you that may need them.

I love the look of the rounded, 30s/40s sunglasses, but they're difficult to come by and I feel they don't always suit my rounder face well.  I picked these particular sunglasses because the larger frames block more sun, and the slightly pointed corners seem to de-round my face a bit.  I also like the bit of blue on the inside; it's a fun touch while keeping the rest of the glasses more versatile for matching my winter coats.

I'm SO glad to have a new pair of sunglasses for winter.  While we usually think of sunglasses with summer, a winter sun's bright rays reflecting off of clouds and snow can cause major squinting and mess with your eyes.  These glasses are going to keep me from going snow-blind AND help me look cute all at once!

What kind of sunglasses do you pair with your vintage looks?  Do you usually go for vintage or reproduction, or do you go a bit more modern like I did?

P.S. Yes, details on this outfit will be in the next post, so hold your horses and stay tuned!

A collaboration with GlassesUSA has made this post possible! These sunglasses were c/o GlassesUSA, but all the opinions are honest and my own. You can read more about my sponsorship policies here.

  1. Really, really wonderful sunglasses and outfit. The sneak peek of it that you've shared with us here will have many a jaw hitting the ground (as mine just did! :)).

  2. I just bought new prescription sunglasses from Eye Buy Direct. Apparently I have a teeny tiny cataract and so I've been told to pretty much always wear sunglasses. (I had shingles AND a cataract and I'm under 30. I'm hitting grandma status pretty quick.)

    So def wear sunglasses!

    I also want to see that really cool top you're wearing! I like how it matches your new sunglasses. Very very cute!

    1. This company can put prescriptions in their frames too, just in case you need more options!

  7. These are really nice shades perfect for summer. Something that can keep our eyes protective and have a sense of fashion sense as well. Unlike the summer shades from SpeedyPaper.com reviews which lacks a sense of fashion taste.
