15 Ways to Wear Sunglasses

You've seen me rock sunglasses for the last 10+ posts. Well, I've compiled pictures of my favorite sunglasses and how I've worn them, all in one big post. I also want to share with you one of my favorite places to buy sunglasses, and why you should buy from them.

SmartBuyGlasses is the place to buy designer glasses and get good deals. But while SmartBuyGlasses does have great prices and great styles, the thing that really sticks out to me is that they give back. Through their Buy One, Give One program, they donate a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need for every single pair bought! They've already donated over $800,000 dollars in prescription eyewear since 2009. By the end of 2012, they hope to have donated 1 MILLION DOLLARS! So if you buy a pair from SmartBuyGlasses, you can help them achieve that goal. If you ask me, it really is a Smart Buy!

I don't know about you, but having a pair of designer sunglasses feels really special. I got my first pair of designer glasses by Rebecca Minkoff this past summer, and they are on special display in my room :). My brother also got his first pair of designer glasses this past summer--by Ray Ban. Ray Ban is probably one of the most well known sunglasses designers out there. And yes, there's a reason for it! Why do you think people continue to splurge on Ray Bans? Because they are amazing, comfortable, stylish, and quality of course! And you can get all the new styles for the best prices, here. (Or check out the end of summer sale on Ray Bans for up to 50%

So, what did you think of all of my ways to wear sunglasses? Which look was your favorite? And which pair will you be buying? :)

Also exciting? Homecoming weekend! My school is lame in that we don't have a football team. But I guess that is a good thing since then soccer is the big homecoming sport! We're playing a really good team, so I'm looking forward to a good game. Wish me luck !

Finally, a shout out to Giant Vintage, for sending me EIGHT pairs of sunglasses to style here on the blog! The past eight posts have been some of my FAVORITE yet!

Sorry for the short little hiatus there--things have been SUPER busy! I've survived my first AP Biology test (I GOT A 94!!!!!), taken my first math test (we're learning about limits [THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST!....Mean Girls anyone?]) and am almost halfway through the regular season of soccer! We have our homecoming game and dance this weekend!!!

As for where I've been this week? On Wednesday, we had off for the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur. Well, my bestest friend Mary had her 17th birthday on the holiday and we celebrated in NYC on her family yacht! Coolest thing of my liiiiife. All 10 of us slept over on it! IT WAS SO FUN. Another highlight? Georgetown Cupcakes. I recommend the flavor Chocolate(squared). :)

Also, the sunglasses pictured here are called the "Bee" in black. As with all of the glasses...they're merely 20 BUCKS!

Thanks for sticking around guys--I know I've been busy and not able to post my usual lengthy, wordy posts. Expect one of those this weekend! :)
