Summer Sunglasses

Today I bought not one, but TWO pairs of prescription sunglasses. 

Yes, I am addicted to buying glasses.

I used Gimp (like Photoshop, but FREE) to give an idea of what the glasses I bought will look like as sunglasses. 

First, the super cute red ones:
Yeah I didn't do that great at Gimping these.  Sorry.

And the ones that Bryan thinks are gross looking, but I think may turn out really cute:

They're slightly dorky and tortoise shell.  I think they'll turn out looking like a mix between these:

and these:

Marc by Marc Jacobs
If you go to, you can get a great deal on glasses with coupon code "SLICKDEAL."  The red glasses cost me $14 total, with shipping.  The tortoise shell cost $9 with shipping.


The Marc Jacobs glasses above? $110.  Without a prescription.  Yep.  I think that's pretty awesome.


  1. I really like the second ones, I do not need prescription glasses so at first I was super into the Marc ones but alas a bit over my budget.

  2. That's awesome. I totally just went and bought Dustin a pair, he's been wanting prescription sunglasses. He has an odd face, so we got 1 pair for $20, but that's still an awesome deal. Thanks for the heads up!

  3. Britt - tell me how he likes them! I'm trying to convince Bry he needs a pair; he thinks it's silly but I'm sure he'd love them when he has them!

    Hemborgwife - you may be able to get them on that site without a prescription; they'd still be $10, but a lot cheaper than the Marc ones!!
