Yesterday on a random trip to the mall, I noticed a poster of Desi Perkins in a Solstice Sunglass outlet store. I automatically assumed that they would be selling Quay Australia sunglasses there. I went inside and found the sunglasses on display. I lost my Quay sunglasses in the style “Sorority Princess” while scrambling to get to another stage at Coachella this year and haven’t gotten around to replacing them yet.
I was trying on a bunch of the different styles, having a few laughs with my boyfriend. He didn’t like many of the more retro styles that I liked so it made it a funny experience for the both of us. I finally settled on the Kylie Jenner collab in the style “Iconic.” The display only had them in gold/purple so I was debating if I should get it even though it wasn’t the color I wanted. The sales associate said they had more colors in the back and I quickly asked for the white ones in the same style. When she handed them to me, I put them on and decided right away that I had to have them.
These aviators have a flat reflective lens (even though the picture above doesn’t look like it). They don’t feel cheap. Definitely more sturdy than Forever 21 sunglasses that I normally buy. I decided to splurge on these because I’ve been wanting them since they dropped but couldn’t justify the price tag. So instead of buying it right away on impulse, I waited to save money for it. The other colors in this style are nice but I feel like the white frame really makes it pop and I don’t have any other sunglasses like it. The leather zip up case is better than the usual case that comes with Quay sunglasses. It definitely makes is easier to carry in your purse without damaging them.
They’re pretty oversized. I tend to gravitate towards bigger sunglasses. I think it compliments my round-ish face very well. The flat lens doesn’t touch my cheeks, which is perfect for us makeup wearers. The sales associate at Solstice said I could come anytime to get them adjusted, which is a nice plus. Some people may not like the mesh detailing, but I feel like it gives this pair of sunglasses something extra. It doesn’t feel too heavy on the face too. I think these will be sunglasses that you can use all year round. The reflective lenses are perfect for the spring/summer and the white frame will compliment darker fall/winter colors.
