When I first pulled these pairs out of the box my first thought was how “out there” they seemed! These are definitely bold styles…
This is the back of the purple pair – I wanted to show it because the edges of the frames come towards your face a little in your peripheral. Even though they’re glittery plastic frames, they felt sturdy and higher quality than, like, a cheap set of frames from the store.
And here’s the back of the chromatic pair. They have tortoise-shell patterned ear covers.
How wacky! Like I said earlier, these are bold. Definitely not my style, haha.
This pair is a little more in my comfort zone, but I tend to prefer more neutral styles that I can pair with anything.
Verdict: I think this is the first time ever Sun of a Chic has sent me glasses I don’t care for! Even when I feel like some they’ve sent previously just aren’t my style (or think I can’t pull them off), I’ve often found that I really like them when I try them on. However these are just a little too bold for me. Which is fine, especially because the box isn’t expensive. I think the value is there for the sunglasses you get for $20. As far as quality goes, these don’t necessarily feel like sunglasses that will last you forever, but they’re still good. Besides, getting new pairs every month (with a pretty low price point) means they don’t have to.
My main thing that still irks me slightly about this subscription is that they still don’t send an “info sheet” listing what designer the glasses are inspired by. The glasses they send out are designer- and runway-inspired, but they don’t include details. They did once, a few months ago – I just wish they’d do that in every box. I’m not the type to keep up on things like this and be able to identify “oh, these are like the new Dior style” or something, but I would recognize the name and feel better knowing who I’m “wearing,” does that make sense?
