This is my lovely little collection of sunglasses. There aren't any big designer pieces in this group but one day there might be. Afterall, I came really close to purchasing some great shades (Fendi and House of Harlow to be exact) at Marshalls one time. But we won't talk about that because it was a sad day with nothing brought home. Anyhow, these sunglasses have done their job and have lasted me a long time and were all under $15. You can't really beat that!
When shopping for sunglasses you want to make sure they fit you right and feel comfortable. Don't buy a pair when you know they're not going to work but love how cute there are, especially if they are a designer brand. If headaches or large red marks on your nose come with the price, it's not worth it.
You also want to make sure you have a good case to protect them from any scratches from sharp objects they may be exposed to in your purse. Your case may get damaged but it's a good thing! Those imperfections might have been on your sunnies rather than it's protector!
Cleaning your sunglasses with a good cleaning wipe is always a good idea. Using your shirt or random soft blanket won't do the trick forever. I picked these up at Wal-Mart. It comes with 50 cleaning wipes that are all individually packaged. One wipe easily cleaned all my sunglasses. I also use it for my prescription glasses and laptop.
Lastly, you want to have a good place to keep your sunglasses. I love Casee's idea on a post she wrote here on the blog back in May. I'm still in the process of figuring out how I want to display mine so that's why I don't have a picture. But I promise to post one once I've made up my mind!
What does your collection look like? Do you keep them safe from harm in a case? How do you keep them clean? What fun ideas do you have for displaying them?
