Fresh Picks to Follow – Summer Sunnies


It’s been raining cats and dogs here in Florida lately, so I haven’t had the need for sunglasses for about a week.  But we all know that this is only temporary.  Since I’ve moved back to Florida, I’ve owned several pairs of sunglasses to get me through each year. I have a couple pairs of designer sunglasses (bought on a deep discount) that I don’t wear all the time, because I’m afraid that I’ll either lose them or break them.  And I definitely don’t run in them.  For my run days, I grab a pair of my cheap glasses or wear a sun visor instead. 

I’ve always thought about investing in a really nice pair of designer sunglasses, but then I think to myself is it really worth the price? I recently read an article that suggested that they are not.  For starters, did you know that most sunglasses are made by the same company?  One company, Italian manufacturer Luxottica, makes some all of the top brands like Burberry, Chanel, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch and Donna Karan.  Luxottica is one of the biggest consumer companies that many consumers have never heard of before.  Another thing that I learned is that in many cases, the same company is also selling you the glasses. Luxottica also owns LensCrafters, Pearle Vision and Sunglass Hut. Who knew right?  Check out this article here for more information about sunglasses.

Anyways, for this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow, here are my top 10 sunnies that I’ve been eyeing lately.  It’s a mix of high-end designer brands and low end designer knock offs.  Do any of you have a pair of sunnies that you can’t live without?  What’s your favorite pair? Do you splurge or try to save money when it comes to sunglasses?  Let me know in the comments.

Today, I’m linking up with AV’s Friday's Fancies over on Long Distance Loving.  If you like what you see here, check AV’s blog for more sunglasses ideas.
