The Glasses Shop Review: Unisex sunglasses

In the summer, you can never have too many pairs of sunglasses! So I was so excited when The Glasses Shop asked whether I wanted to try a pair of their sunglasses.

Glassesshop.com are an American owned and operated online retailer of eyeglasses. The website launched in 2004 and they are actually a group of eye doctors that realise that glasses can be expensive. Offering a great variety of both prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses at unbelievably low prices.
When I was younger I used to have to wear glasses but not anymore and now that we're in summer I thought I would go for a pair of sunglasses. I'm very particular about the style of sunglasses I wear, I don't like anything too big for my head and it's important that I can see properly when driving. I was very impressed with the variety of styles available on the website from my usual classic aviators to the currently popular wayfarer designs.
I decided to go for the Pueblo aviators which are actually unisex. My hubby keeps stealing my expensive shades so I thought a pair that we can share would be ideal. My favourite pair of shades are aviators so i love how these have the black plastic and then the gold metal aswell.
As these are unisex sunglasses they do appear slightly big on me, not a big issue really as I do like the design and I suspect the hubby will have dibs on these. The lenses also appear slightly darker than what I usually wear so I probably wouldn't wear these while driving. The glasses came really well packaged inside a plastic case with a wipe to clean the lenses. The glasses sent to me for review are $39.95 which is approximately £29 sterling. For a pair of sunglasses that aren't branded they are a bit more expensive than you would get in a high street store.
However, if you need prescription glasses then I don't think you can get a better price. When i did wear prescription glasses i remember paying over £200 for a pair of designer ones that I hardly wore. The great thing here is that you could actually build up a pretty good collection of glasses for the price of one pair in a highstreet opticians.
Do you have a favourite pair of sunglasses or like to switch between different styles?
