With the start of summer finally in sight, it’s time to start thinking about sunglasses. For the past year, I’ve worn the Prada cat eye sunnies pictured above almost exclusively. And don’t get me wrong, I’ve been very happy with them. But lately I’ve been craving a bit of variety in my sunglasses selection. Since I already have a nice pair of standbys, I’m not quite willing to shell out for five new pairs of pricey shades.
Luckily, on a recent trip to Vancouver, I found some Karen Walker Super Duper Strength lookalikes that have hardly left my face since. That great find inspired this collection of sunnies that take serious (and stylish!) cues from designer shades.
