        Day-Trippers Sunglasses in Pink – Retail Value $75.00

        The style for may is the Day-Trippers. I think it the past, Shades Club allowed you to browse their entire collection so I was able to link to the current pair, but I only see past styles available to purchase now. All of their past sunglasses are priced at $75.00 so I think it’s safe to assume that these have the same value. The pink part is a smooth matte plastic with rose gold metal accents at the end of the arm against the hinge, as well as at the nose pads. The bottom part of the lenses are a matching rose gold metal and the lenses are mirrored with a slight pink tint. They’re really lightweight but feel sturdy enough to not break easily. This style is quite comfortable on and I’m surprised how well they fit my small head in the way they aren’t so loose that they fall off like many other sunglasses I’ve worn. They are just tight enough to hold in place but not so much that they hurt. For $29.00, I think these are a solid pair of sunnies.

        Here they are on. I personally think they’re a little too wide for my face but I like the overall style, the rose gold accents, and most importantly the fit.

        Verdict: Shades Club sent a new mystery pair of sunnies that I think have a great quality to them and a modern design. Pink isn’t my preferred color, but if you’re into a wide variety of colors and styles, then this is a great sub for you to keep a fresh look.

        1. $14 for the first box got me hook line and sinker. Thanks for the review! Can’t see myself needing more than 2-3 months of this but I love sunglasses!

        2. These look really cute on you.

          • Thank you, Katie!

        3. Cute sunnies but would like them for a slimmer face.

        4. I love those on you. You made me subscribe.

          • Thanks, Kristine! 🙂
