Splurge vs. Save - Sunglasses

I know that sunglasses aren’t normally at the top of one’s January shopping list, but I have to share my new favorite pair, which were a steal!  After bragging about how I never lose my sunglasses, I lost them on the last day of vacation in St. Martin.  Long story short, but there was a bomb threat which shut down the airport for several hours and I left them at security as I was rushing to catch my flight once the airport reopened.

I’ve been lusting after the Karen Walker Super Duper sunglasses for a few months, but couldn't justify them until I lost my previous pair.  I love the shape of her glasses and the tortoise color is more flattering on my skin tone than black.  I normally don't mind splurging on a pair of sunglasses because I keep that pair for several years.  However, leave it to Target to create a great option!  I didn't even go in for a pair of sunglasses, but I swear that place is so dangerous for my wallet!  I got the ATM pair above, which you can see here on my Instagram, but which ones would you choose?

  2. Oh no! I'm sorry you lost your sunnies, but that's a good excuse for a new super chic pair. :) I also have a sunglasses problem- like Ray-Ban needs to put me on payroll or something. HA!

  4. Aww I'm so sorry to hear about your sunglasses, but yay for a new pair! This is why I love target, I think you made a great decision. The Karen Walker are fabulous and I've been eyeing them as well, but this version is great too!

  6. ahh ive been eyeing these sunglasses!! thank you!!

  7. I want a pair of Karen Walker sunnies so bad, but I have a feeling that round shape would not look as chic on me as it does the other girls who rock them. Your other options are great alternatives!

  8. I am normally all for the save but I can't get over the lighter coloring on the platinum version, gorgeous, plus the weight of the Karen Walker sunnies makes them so worth it!
