i recently received a super sweet pair of sunglasses from sunglasses shop.

i was able to browse through their selection of designer sunglasses and choose a pair. my current pair of sunglasses is an aviator style of oakley sunglesses in black… but i had actually been wanting a brown version similar to my black pair. so, when i was perusing the site, i zeroed in on the oakley women caveat sunglasses. LOVE them.

this is the second pair of “nice” sunglasses i own. i used to always buy my sunglasses for five buck from forever21, but then marshall talked me into getting a pair of polarized sunglasses before we went to costa rica, so i bought the black oakleys i mentioned above. sure, they were more expensive, but they were so worth it! plus, i am more inclined to take care of them since they weren’t five bucks. win, win.

i love the look of aviators, i feel like they flatter every face (not just cops–haha.) i am a big fan of these oakleys because of the thin frame around the lens. i don’t like glasses without a frame.

Love the shades!

I save on hot cocoa (generic grocery store brand does the trick) and splurge on protein powder.

jennifer December 10, 2012 at 5:32 pm

I save on bras and splurge on jeans!

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More December 10, 2012 at 7:05 pm

I’m such a cheap-o I try to save on nearly everything, even saving on “splurge” items. But what I DO splurge on are my running shoes. Not even generally regular shoes, but RUNNING shoes.

Michelle December 10, 2012 at 7:06 pm

I save on clothes and tend to splurge on food, albeit healthy. I love to try new things.

Aimee M December 10, 2012 at 7:13 pm

I never pay full price for clothes, but I always splurge on makeup!

Katie December 10, 2012 at 7:19 pm

When it comes to clothes (which are my favorite things to shop for), I save on basics, like tanks and solid pieces, and splurge on well fitting jeans and leather boots/shoes :)

Katie December 10, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Save- def on workout clothes (hello TJ Maxx!)
Splurge- SHOES! They have to be comfy!

Shelby December 10, 2012 at 7:31 pm

I save on shoes (like heels) when shopping, I buy at places like Target and Payless. Shoes tend to go out of style quickly so its not worth it to me to spend a lot if I’ll only wear them a handful of times

Ashley s December 10, 2012 at 7:34 pm

I splurge on kitchen appliances. I have too many!

Christina December 10, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Those glasses look adorable on you!! I tend to splurge on new to me organic and health foodie items and try to save on staples by buying from bulk bins or Costco when possible.

Christina December 10, 2012 at 8:23 pm

I tweeted :) (@graceless_love)

Lisa @ Lisa Living Well December 10, 2012 at 8:48 pm

I save on basics like long sleeve shirts and splurge on shoes. I have ankle problems, so good shoes are a must for me!

Emily M December 10, 2012 at 9:24 pm

$ave: body lotion from dollar tree
$plurge: eye cream from clinique

Meagan December 11, 2012 at 3:55 am

i save on shoes- even running shoes, I hardly ever buy a pair that’s not on sale. I splurge on sports bras, even thought it makes me crazy to spend $60 on a bra, it’s always worth it!

Cole December 11, 2012 at 8:16 am

I try to always save when shopping for clothes, but splurge on shoes!

Cole December 11, 2012 at 8:16 am

I tweeted as well!

Sarah December 11, 2012 at 9:19 am

I save on leggings (hello forever 21) and splurge on handbags! The structured and more durable the better!

Yana December 11, 2012 at 9:34 am

I recently splurged big time on a Vitamix. Now I am saving on smoothies and nut butters.

Jess December 11, 2012 at 10:30 am

I always save money on accessories when I go shopping. I think the most I ever paid for sunglasses was $10 at Ross. I have no idea when the last time I even bought jewelry was (I should probably get on that). The one thing that I have to splurge on is shoes. I have boats for feet, yep, a size 12 does not come cheap ladies! And the worst part about it is that I was always a size 11 and when I lost about 80 pounds, I had to go UP a size in SHOES. what is that about?

Jess December 11, 2012 at 11:20 am

I left a twitter message too! Whoohoo! I’m ready to graduate into the world of big girl sunglasses!

Jennifer December 11, 2012 at 11:59 am

Save on clothes! I am definitely a clearance shopper. Splurge on good workout shoes.

Haley December 11, 2012 at 1:14 pm

My save: time. I know my grocery stores (the two I frequent) up, down, and all-around, so when I make my list(s), I make them based on the layout of the store.

My splurge: I splurge on good quality coffee…organic, strong, always from Louisiana (they have the best!).

Sarah December 11, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Awesome giveaway! I really need to get some polarized lenses.

I definitely splurge on purses and save on my shoes!

Mascha December 11, 2012 at 2:35 pm

I try to save on clothes but splurge on heels and handbags!!

Kim December 11, 2012 at 5:40 pm

I save on clothes. if you’re in shape you don’t need great stitching and patterns. I spend on good shoes, gotta protect the feet and good clean eats. thanks for the chance to win… the glasses are so cute on you.

Christina Webb December 11, 2012 at 8:40 pm

I splurge on make up, handbags,and shoes and save on jewelry. I basically only own costume jewelry, nothing fancy!
