Review-Coastal Prescription Sunglasses+Gingham Blue Dress

Hello friends!

Happy Monday! I hope all of you Moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I called my mom, as she is in Pittsburgh. It has been pretty rainy here, but I was excited to put on my new sunglasses, nevertheless.  I would have loved more sun out to show you my sunglasses but I think there will be many more opportunities! This week is supposed to be in the 80s and sunny already. Coastal Sunglasses got in touch with me about collaborating and I was quite excited to do so as they have a great selection of glasses and sunglasses.

I was wanting a larger pair of prescription sunglasses this year as I have a few pair of cat eye that I love, but aren’t your Jackie O sized sunglasses. I was given the ability to look for either sunglasses or glasses, add a prescription and a sunglass coating.  Coastal has so many cool frames to choose from. I was limited to various brands, but these werewere the more popular brands such as  exclusive brands (Derek Cardigan, Kam Dhillon, Joseph Marc, Perspective, Michelle Lane, LOVE, Zooventure, and Ltede)  I loved these cat eye frames in steel and it came down to these Kham Dhillon white tortoise.  After much mulling, I went with the white tortoise. Something about the bold shape and different color really appealed to me.

The frame and larger shape was just what I was looking for! Who doesn’t love Old Hollywood? Now if I could just transport myself to the Riveria!

About the Kam Dhillon Line: (*

Kam Dhillon eyewear is all about sophistication and class. Elegant shaping and dramatic details combine to create the Kam Dhillon Cinque Terre sunglasses. This daring frame sweeps into a stunning cat eye style to flatter wider foreheads and narrow jaw lines, while its saddle nose bridge sits comfortably against narrower noses. Strong lines complete this alluring style along each temple. From that description, I thought they would be perfect.

“The Kam Dhillon Riviera Sun line is the perfect complement to our range of vintage-inspired glasses. Each of the three styles offers something unique for any and every type of sun-seeker. ” I loved these styles -with a wide brimmed hat, flowing kimono and espadrille sandals with my swimsuit would look lovely at the beach or seaside. With the prescription lenses, I will be wearing these daily in the summer… so get used to them on the blog!

I know that one thing is true for me buying glasses. It can be rather addicting! There used to be a time when I didn’t want the shape of the glasses defined and I went for ( Sillouetes- no frame) however, it seems now, I prefer them to make a statement! If you are looking for ease of shopping with a wide selection of inventory , buying on-line at Coastal is a great way to do it. They have a large selection of frames, materials and styles and the cost is reasonable. I did receive these as a gift* ( $250+ value) but would have paid more in the local eye wear stores for frames and prescription lenses.

I do wear progressive lenses, but I didn’t get these in progressive, as certain lenses are not available. They do offer progressive and at a reasonable additional price. I felt with sunglasses it wasn’t as necessary.

So, if you are looking for selection, style and service, check out what Coastal has to offer. 

Mixing prints with my jeweled shoes.

Delicate jewelry this time around.  Love this saphire necklace.Next time I style this dress I will change the accessories.

Ive also added a floral print shoe to mix with the gingham print. I am looking for a floral bag as well. This is an easy way to mix patterns and print, by taking a patterned shoe and mixing it with a patterned or print dress. Wear a purse or bag in another print and accessories are a great way to mix prints!

      Thank you Jodie! I wasn’t so used to larger sunglasses so for about a week I thought to myself, “are they too big”? Then I looked at these pics and said, Nope! perfect size. So glad you liked the style I picked too! Looking forward to seeing yours, and your new hairdo! 🙂 xx
