Barbara Mckay blue chanel sunglasses

Friends recognize my bright blue Chanel Oval Signature Sunglasses before they recognize ME because I rarely leave home without them.  I’ve had them for two years and have not lost them yet, which is a record for me, and a testimony to how important they are to me.

I highly recommend a great pair of sunglasses, not just because they protect light sensitive eyes from harmful UV rays but, for me, they cover a lot of face flaws from time to time, such as no time for eye makeup, not enough sleep, or even a bad hair day.  The colorful sunnies with the classic Chanel logo get the attention instead of things I choose to hide.

I like my sunglasses oversized and colorful.  I purchased these from Neiman Marcus in 2014 and based on PPW – or price per wear – they are a real value.  Here are a few other favorites and how you can make them yours:

yellow chanel sunglasses
These yellow Chanel Butterfly sunglasses from Real Real are almost exactly like my blue ones!

black chanel sunglassesThis black pair of Chanel Strass Oval sunglasses closely resembles my signature sunnies as well.

pink tom ford sunglassesI really like these Tom Ford Round-Frame Acetate sunglasses, on sale for $165 (originally $475) at The OutNet, one of my favorite shopping sites.

michael kors aviatorsI also love these Michael Kors Metal Mirrored Aviator sunglasses from Neiman Marcus.  These also are available in a fuchsia color.
