Hi, my name is T. Espinoza and I have a shopping problem.
Whew, I’m glad I got that off my chest. That’s not the only problem I have though. I also have Louboutin taste on a Red Circle Boutique (read: Target) budget. In addition to the shopping problem and my innate attraction to all things designer (or otherwise expensive) I’m also
kinda cheap extremely fiscally responsible. These forces are in constant battle with one another… I win some, I lose some.
Recently, I came thisclose to allowing myself a splurge on these Über Fab Prada Baroque sunglasses.
I saw Solange wearing them a while back and couldn’t get over how chic they looked.
*I'd like to note that Solo and I are BFF's in my head*
Peep the head-wrap. Swoon.
I figured, why not? I work hard and I had put away a little extra, so I should reward myself. Alas, my mind just could not get wrapped around the idea of paying $300 for, let’s face it, some damn plastic sunglasses.
Enter Retro City Sunglasses. And these:
**The Black Bellissimo Oversize Sunglasses are actually not available anymore, but you can still get your *swirl* on at Amazon. You have your choice of 11 different colors and most are less than $10. #Winning
*insert happy dance here*
What’s missing? The “Prada” label. Do I care? For 10 bucks, not so much.
So what say you? Would you go for the splurge or the save?
