Sunglass Warehouse Review & Giveaway 2/10 US/CAN


For a while I really wanted a $300 pair of designer sunglasses. Fortunately, when I looked, I didn't find anything I liked (I'm that picky...). I know now that there is no point in spending that much money. We barely even get much sun in Vancouver. And sunglasses are not just accessories. They are a must have item needed for protecting our eyes and vision from harmful UV rays. As long as they have maximum UV protection, they are good enough sunglasses already. Since then, I stopped being too picky and settled for cheap sunglasses. I don't need to feel guilty if my son breaks a pair or if they go out of fashion, because they are easily replaceable.

Review
Sunglass Warehouse has hundreds of sunglasses for women and men and all of them are under $20! I quickly chose which ones I wanted to review, as I don't really experiment much with different shapes. I just go for what I know looks classy and feels comfortable. Maybe I should start experimenting more! I chose these women's sunglasses in a brown frame. When I received the package, I was very impressed with these sunglasses. For only $13.56, they look even better than on the picture, have maximum UV400 protection and don't feel like they are too cheap in general. I was also a bit worried that they might not fit well, since I was getting these sunglasses online and couldn't try them on first, but to my delight they fit great. I'm very happy with my sunglasses and can't wait for summer to come to start wearing them.

If you are not to sure how to choose the right sunglasses, Sunglass Warehouse has pages on choosing sunglasses based on your skin tones and choosing sunglasses for your face shape. I should have probably consulted with these pages first, as according to them I should have chosen cat-eye sunglasses. I will keep it in mind for future reference as I actually kinda like the way these look.  If you want to get sunglasses for your man, they have categories such as mirrored sunglasses and motorcycle sunglasses. So many to choose from! And you can't really go wrong with their prices. Within US, they offer free shipping for orders over $25. That guarantees you 2 pairs!
