Sunglass Warehouse {Review & Giveaway}

Sunglass Warehouse logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Robin!}

When it comes to sunglasses, there are two rules that I've always lived by.

One, unless I'm staring directly into the sun, I always remove my sunglasses when I'm talking to someone. I find it awkward and strange to be carrying on a conversation with a person and not be able to see their eyes. How do I know where to look?

Two, for me it's all about the cheaper the better. I'm not someone who is willing to spend any considerable amount of money on a pair of sunglasses that are just going to be tossed around in my car, shoved into my purse or buried under papers on my kitchen counter. As long as they keep the sun out of my eyes and they look good, that's all that I need.

Therefore, no matter if I'm shopping for black retro sunglasses or trendy aviator sunglasses, the place I know I can always turn to for style and affordability is none other than Sunglass Warehouse.

Sunglass Warehouse reviewWith Sunglass Warehouse's super-fast shipping, the OveRxCast Large Polarized Sunglasses #1398 arrived and made it suddenly possible for me to wear my glasses (which I prefer over my contact lenses) but still shield my eyes from the sun.

fit over sunglassesThe perfect style for wearing while driving or just outside enjoying the weather, these frames are designed to help isolate your eyes from the elements and provide maximum UV protection - they block 100% of harmful UV rays. Although these aren't as hip and trendy as the aviator sunglasses that I might otherwise wear, I love having the ability to slip them on right over my normal eyeglasses and take away the harsh glare and allow my eyes some relief.

Designed to be worn over frames not exceeding 138 mm wide x 50 mm high, I hadn't realized that by choosing the Large size in these sunglasses (they are also available in Medium and Wide) that they would be quite as large as they are. But hey, the oversize look is in right now, right?

oversize sunglassesEven though my husband might tease me a little bit about the size, I've really enjoyed these sunglasses and prefer to keep them in the car for easy access to putting an end to the squinting. As the durable plastic frames surround my prescription glasses on the front and sides, they comfortably rest right on top and only make a slight addition to the weight.

Also available with copper lenses (instead of the smoke color thatcopper lenses I chose), the OveRxCast Large Polarized Sunglasses retail for $19.95 and would make a great gift for the glasses-wearing family member or friend in your life that could use help protecting their eyes from the sun in the summer and the glare off of the snow in the winter.

With customer service as their top priority, Sunglass Warehouse has provided quality sunglasses at affordable prices to thousands of satisfied customers. I love the way that they manage to capture the designer look without the inflated price tag to go with it. You're able to purchase traditional, classic frames or sleek, celebrity-trendy sunglassesinspired ones and not feel as though you have to spend a fortune.

Even better, to help narrow down their tremendous selection, they have recently included tips such as "choosing sunglasses based on your skin tone" and "choosing sunglasses for your face shape" to help you find the ones that will be perfect for you and your look. With the styles you want and the prices you can afford, it's time to stock up on sunglasses for the remainder of summer and all throughout the fall and beyond.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be ready to chase away the glare as well, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of sunglasses from Sunglass Warehouse!
