Love these lenses, love these frames, love the VIBES!!
Only thing holding me back from a 5 star is that they came slightly crooked and I haven’t been able to straighten them myself... Tbd after a trip to the glasses store :-)
I wear these every day, they’re very versatile. The lenses are fairly dark, not overly blue!
honestly, my worry when ordering sunglasses online is that it’s not going to fit my head correctly. the description provided is super helpful when helping me shop and these fit my face so well. I have a rounder shaped face and I’m glad these worked out. The lens color with tortoise frames are a really elevated look. Very happy with these!
These sunglasses are so great. They fit my face well and I always get compliments when I wear them! I love the tortoiseshell frames too.
