Gosh, do I love designer sunglasses but not the price! The style, the fit and the flare melt my fashionista heart. I am guilty of owning at least a dozen pairs of designer sunglasses.
Do you loose your sunglasses as easily as you lose your grocery list? Boy do I have some fun shades for you to try. My friend introduced me to Knockaround sunglasses. You can design custom polarized sunglasses for $30. Shipping is around $5 for first class US mail but if you spend $50 they waive the shipping charge.
I find myself choosing to wear my Premium Knockarounds more frequently than my designer shades this summer. They have ready to order sunglasses for $10-15 and they even have a kids (better for ages 4 and under) line too. I personally had fun designing my own custom pair. The brown gradient lenses I custom ordered aren’t very dark lenses but are great for blocking the sun so I don’t quint. If you don’t want others to see your eyes, definitely go for the mirrored lenses. I recently got a pair of Custom Fort Knocks and I found them to big too big for my face. The side arms have hinges so they fit a widened face better. I prefer the tight fit of the Premiums. I think this is a super fun gift for teenagers or hard-to-buy for friends on your list.
They are made in sunny San Diego and arrive lickity split to the East Coast. Subscribe to their email list and save 10% on your first order or use my referral link and save $10 off your first pair. Around Holiday weekends, they usually have a flash sale or a limited addition pairs of sunglasses available.
Do you ever wonder which sunglasses fit your face? I found this guide thanks for Neimans and then selected some of my personal favs for each shape face.
Square shaped faced might be best suited for Wayfarers.
Do you have a heart shaped face? Cat eye sunnies are for you.
Rectangular faces look amazing with aviators on.
What about the round faces out there? Anything oversized or circular works best.
If you have an oval face, you are blessed with great genes. Just about any style looks good on you so try a pop of color or a funky print.
My advice is bring a friend and plan a day for sunglass shopping and lunch. Take tons of pics and see what you like best and what feels good on your face. Then come home and shop around for best best deal online.
Military friends: Browse around at Armed Forces Eyewear. They carry tons of designers and will custom order a brand a style for you at deeply discounted prices. Install the Ebates cash back button in your tool bar or download the app on your smart phone and take an additional 4% off. I’ve also found great deals on designer sunnies at Nordstrom Rack if you have the patience to look.
Tips On How To Reduce Eye Wrinkles:
Keeping your eyes covered will keep the squinting to a minimum and reduce the crows feet wrinkles around your eyes. My nighttime routine to smooth away those fine lines is the quick and easy approach. I use Rodan + Fields Redefine eye cloths to remove make up because they have peptides in them along with the triple threat Redefine multi-function eye cream. This eye cream is the jam and combats wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. Plus this jar lasts me 6-8 months for $60. In the morning, I use the Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste which exfoliates your skin with Vitamins A + C and leaves your skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom. This jar also lasts me 6-8 months. Purchase all 3 for $151.
My other powerful punch is delivered in the evening is in the Redefine AMP MD roller and night serum. The roller uses micro needling technology (think of air-rating your lawn before fertilizing it) to make tiny perforations in your skin before loading up with a little blue capsule full of peptides for skin cell turnover and collagen stimulating goodness. Together these 2 products deliver results guaranteed with a 60 day full refund.

Double dip even further if your local grocery store has gas rewards program. I buy Nordstrom gift cards at Safeway when the offer double or triple gas points for gift card purchases. Combine that with Ebates and its a win-win. Another favorite trick when I know I am going to make a big purchase is to cash in my American Express credit card points for gift cards to Saks or Neimans. Then wait for a “Spend Some, Get Some” promotion where you can earn a store gift card with a qualifying purchase (some designer exclusions apply). For example spend $250, get a $50 gift card to use later at Saks. Neiman Marcus has a promos to earn a $100 gift card when you send $500.
