Why I Don’t Pay Full Price for Designer Sunglasses

designer sunglasses

Balmain $390 $89.99

I don’t splurge on designer sunglasses because I lose them. If I don’t lose them, I tire of them quickly. My money spent investing in new Gucci, YSL, or D&G sunglasses is better spent on a pair of amazing boots. It’s really hard to lose a $500 pair of boots, and they are far more essential to my outfit than a pair of sunglasses I take off the minute I enter an indoor area, and then leave on a boat at some point.

I still want designer sunglasses, though. The solution is shopping at Nordstrom Rack, Last Call, and Off 5th. You get access to designer sunglasses at around 60% off. Listed below are my favorite sunnies at my favorite prices. You’re welcome!
