Seems like, nowadays, you’re not a celeb if you don’t own a pair of Wayfarer shades. From coast to coast, D List through A, stars are rocking Ray Ban‘s best-selling style.
For the past year or so, I have been in a monogamous relationship with a pair of oversized Gucci shades – but this summer, I’m feeling like I need something a bit more streamlined. So I’m currently contemplating hopping on board the Ray Ban bandwagon.
Yesterday, during a routine trip to Lord & Taylor, I decided to try on the iconic style made famous by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. I was very surprised by how well they flattered my face. Typically, I’m the Goldilocks of shades; I have to try on about 25 pairs before I find one that looks halfway decent. But the first pair I picked up was Ray Ban’s new Wayfarer style 2132, a smaller take on the original…and they fit like they were custom made.
Had Mr. Spoiled Pretty not been with me – watching me like a hawk and cautioning me from giving my Visa card too much of a workout – I would have bought those sunglasses on the spot. Now, as I sit here typing, I’m singing the shoulda woulda coulda’s.
I’ll probably end up going back to the store tomorrow. Lord & Taylor is having a sale right now online and in stores, and almost everything is 20% off*. Which means that the Wayfarers will only cost me $87.20 – as opposed to the $109 regular price.

Me and my Spanx Hide & Sleek Hi-Rise Panty are, literally, attached at the hip. Anytime I want to whittle my middle, I reach for this high-waisted shaper. If this panty charged for hours worked, I’m sure I’d be paying triple overtime…which is why I decided to pay Nordstrom a visit and pick up another piece to add to my Spanx collection.
Lucky me, my Nordstrom trip just happened to coincide with their …and I picked up this ‘Hi-Rise’ Body Smoother for just $44.90 (regularly $68)!
Spanx are expensive, so if you’ve been meaning to try their shapewear for the first time or you’re a Spanx fan who has been meaning to add to her collection, now is the time to buy! Prices go back up on Monday, August 3rd.
