Last weekend we ventured to the MoA to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (what else?). We both did some damage, but what I’ve been most excited about is having finally found a pair of aviator sunglasses that I love.
Like the elusive chambray shirt, it’s an iconic staple which I’ve never possessed before. But in a serendipitous moment, we walked up to the sunglass counter, I plucked a pair out of the display to try on, and I was suddenly backlit by a soft, glowing light (you know, metaphorically speaking). They were perfect.
At $78.90 during the Anniversary Sale (reg. retail price $119), I snapped these up faster than you can say “On my AmEx please.” And since they’re TOMS brand, not only do you get a kick-ass pair of sunglasses with these, you also get the pleasure of knowing your purchase helps give someone else sight through their One For One program. For each pair of glasses sold, a person in need will get either a pair of corrective glasses, sight-saving surgery, or medical treatment for sight issues.
So go on – buy yourself a pair. Who knew helping others could look so good?
