Ray Ban-Tastic!

Oh my. This weekend, I thrifted real Ray Ban New Wayfarers. (!!!!!!!!!!!) I never, ever thought I would find something this great at a thrift store, and I certainly wasn't expecting it from an impromtu thrift trip with my family in Florida! (More on the other neat thrift store we visited sometime this week, but I just couldn't wait to share what is probably my best find ever with you all :) )

Ray Ban New Wayfarers, Goodwill in Pensacola ($4.99!!!!)

Yup, these babies were a mere $4.99. I tried to be nonchalant about it when I asked to see them, but when I got them close and saw that they were real, I thought my huge smile would give away the crazy price! (I'm guessing whoever priced them meant to do $49.99, but accidently missed a 4, and the cashier couldn't have paid less attention...)

Whatever the reason for the price, I am so excited to have some really nice sunglasses! As much as I love my vintage collection, there's something to be said of super-quality, designer ones. Here's me "modeling" them last night, after arriving home from my crazy 24-hour trip to Florida that involved waking up at 3:50 a.m. on Saturday morning:


In other words, no matter how tired and plane-ride-exhausted I was, the $4.99 Ray Bans made me look (and feel!) much better :) I'll have more on the other thrift store and finds throughout the week!

Always,
Amanda

PS: Thanks so much for your kind comments about my dress(es)! It was kind of fun to dress up, I have to admit!

  1. That's crazy! I'm so jealous...I lost my pair on my recent trip to Long Island...they were a free gift from the Lucky Style Spotter site so it's not like losing money but still. Makes me sad. :(
