I know it’s autumn/winter now and I love a crisp walk as much as the next person, but part of me wants to cling onto summer still.
I was lucky enough to be contacted by a company called Cheapass Sunglasses, which does exactly what it suggests! They sell a huge range of sunglasses for all tastes for under €10 (prices on the site are in euros), with €1.95 worldwide shipping which is crazy!
I was allowed to pick out any pair I wanted which I thought was so generous as there was so much choice! I knew I wanted to go for something different to what I’d normally go for, especially since they had some really cool frames, and I eventually went for the ones called Buzzing Mooses (I know right, such a cute name!).
I included the picture that they give you on the site just so you can get a feel for the whole appearance vs reality aspect, but I actually don’t think there’s a problem at all!
In terms of the style, I think these glasses are so unique, and I’ve never had blue-tinted glasses before either so this was a first for me! I think that the gold detail on the front is absolutely gorgeous and…I just love them.
I’m super happy with the way they look on me, I really feel like they’d make any outfit on a sunny day look so much more fabulous. As for how they work, the site guarantees “100% UV Protection”, and I’ve only worn them out once on one of those rare autumn sunny days, but they do the job!
Also you may be thinking…Carla: These are called cheapass sunglasses, surely they’re really flimsy and cheap looking?
Well I think in terms of quality you’ll be pleasantly surprised, as to me the frames feel and look sturdy and they look more luxurious than the €8.95 they sell them for on the site!
Overall I would definitely recommend these glasses for whether you like to buy in early for summer, or you just need some extra-stylish shades to shove in your car! (They also have loads of gorgeous, really quirky festival glasses). I’d never reviewed anything like sunglasses before but I really enjoyed this, and it was a pleasure to work with this company as they were so lovely to speak to!
Let me know what you thought of me trying out a more fashion/lifestyle kind of post – I appreciate any feedback, as always.
