Oakley Sunglasses Giveaway

Hi Friends!

Happy New Year’s Eve! Can you believe it’s almost 2013?! I’m just popping in today with a fun little giveaway for you guys!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Jess over at  The Sunglasses Shop with an offer to send me a brand new pair of sunglasses. And not just any sunglasses…my very first pair of Oakleys!


Let’s talk about me and sunglasses for a second. I’m the type of person that buys $10 cheapo sunglasses because I always seem to be losing them/breaking them/etc. In fact, that explains why my current pair is looking oh-so-attractive with half the color peeled off the front of them. It also explains why I’ve been known to wear a pair of sunglasses with one side missing. Yep…it’s true. Very fashionable. So to say I was excited about some high quality sunglasses would be an understatement!

Anyways, if you haven’t checked out The Sunglasses Shop….you’re missing out. They sell all sorts of  designer sunglasses at reasonable prices. I was so thrilled to get to try out a pair of Oakley Sunglasses! Jess even let me pick the pair I wanted. After MUCH deliberation…I settled on these Oakley Women Sweet Spot Sunglasses:

Aren’t they beautiful?! I can’t say enough good things about them. They’re super lightweight and they fit my face perfectly. I picked this pair specifically because I loved the shape..and I love they don’t have a separate nose piece like some glasses have- those always get stuck in my hair when i push them up on my head. My order from The Sunglasses Shop came VERY quickly and the sunglasses came in a protective case, which is perfect for me because it keeps me from just throwing them unprotected into my purse like I usually do:


Plus, I feel a little bit like a movie star when I wear them…
and that’s never a bad thing:


I’m in love with them!


And now for the good news! The Sunglasses Shop is letting me give away a pair of these Oakleys to one lucky reader! The winner will receive a pair of Oakley Women Sweet Spot Sunglasses in this fun Rose Metal color:

  1. I always go cheap. The most I spent on a pair was probably $30 and it was cheap quality. They broke the first time I dropped them. I asked for a new expensive pair of sunglasses for my upcoming bday!

  2. I’m super excited about these glasses!! They look adorable – And Lindsay, you do look like a celebrity in them! :)) I used to go cheap, always but I bought a pair of Marc Jacobs glasses at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale almost 2 years ago and they have been amazing! Good investment!! :)
    Thanks again for the giveaway!

  3. I go the cheap route when I purchase myself. However my husband has bought me the “real deal” and there is no comparison in quality. The cheap ones break, scratch….and the real ones seem to last forever. Definitely you get what you pay for when it comes to sunglasses.

  4. I used to buy expensive sunglasses and then I had kids! If I one these, they’d be under lock and key!

    I gave my pair away to my sister as we packed…no idea why now as it is sunnier in CA than Id thought.
    oops :-)
    Miz recently posted..STOP REREADING!

  6. Yup I’m a cheap wearer too!! But I always have a pair with me!!

  7. I am generally a cheapie when it comes to sunglasses, but then my parents bought me a pair of Armani ones. I loved them and was really protective of them… that is, until one of my friends decides to sit and squash them… it was a bummer and now I’m back to the cheapies! So, I would LOVE a pair of Oakleys!! :)

  8. Lisa Jones says:

    I have a 3 year old so I never spend more than about $20 on sunglasses. I’ve looked at these sunglasses before. Love them!

  9. christopher sorel says:

    Love oakleys and buy a new set of lenses for my oakley flak every 6 months. Best thing about them is $45 for new lenses and use the same frames.

  10. I always go for the cheap ones, with two kids I can’t afford nice ones…lol

  11. I don’t own (and never have) a pair of Oakley’s! I’m totally missing out!

  12. I usually buy cheap sunglasses, but I do have a few pair of more expensive ones.

  13. Awesome giveaway, girl! I’d totally feel like a movie star in those too.
    Tiff (@LoveSweatBeers) recently posted..Wrapping Up 2012

  14. I wear quality sunglasses. Rayban Aviators have been my trademark look for many years. They glass and metal are not ideal for running though – so some plastic Oakleys would fit the bill.
    DisneyBride recently posted..Becoming a Disney Sports Enthusiast

  15. I’ve never bought a pair of really nice sunglasses before for many of the same reasons as you! I also tend to throw them in my purse (yikes) or onto the passenger seat of my car–a case would be SO nice to keep them from getting scratched.

  16. Mandy Buchanan says:

    I tend to go cheap. I end up breaking sunglasses or leaving them places. Left my last pair of Costas in a fitting room at a department store. Ugh.

  17. I always buy the cheap sunglasses. I end up breaking them (normally when I sit on them or step on them). So $5 Forever 21 glasses are usually my thing :)

  19. I usually go for the cheap sunglasses but I just invested in a pair of coach ones…on sale of course! These are BEAUTIFUL! I love the color!

  20. Those are so cute! I tend to buy cheapo sunglasses since I always lose or break them.
    Betsy recently posted..pv.Body Review

  21. I spend almost nothing on workout sunglasses but I really should get a nice pair that don’t bounce off my nose on my 18 milers. Just started investing in nice everyday ones but I’m nervous since I’m famous for losing them.
    Abby recently posted..Back From the Brink

  22. I have one pair of Smiths that were pretty pricey. I bought them 6 years ago, and they still look great; they have interchangeable lenses and I have replaced scratched ones, but the frames are almost like new. Other than that, all my sunglasses are cheapo!
    Alison @ wifemeetslife recently posted..The New Year

  23. I bought an expensive pair last year and I love them! I love Oakleys – these look so cute!
    Emily @ Greens, Eggs, & Hamstrings recently posted..Vegan Almond Butter Cookies

  24. these sunglasses look so great! i am definitely like you when it comes to sunglasses. it’s about time i own a killer pair of quality shades!

  25. I splurge on nice sunglasses! Your eyes are worth it. These are adorable.
    Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie recently posted..A Different Kind of Christmas Story

  26. I usually go for cheap ones but if I find a pair I really like, I will splurge.

  27. I always tend to go for Cheap Sunglasses because I feel a lot better about just throwing them in my purse and heading out. With nice ones like these, a case is a definite must to invest in!

  28. Fabulous sunglasses!

  29. Melissa Love says:

    What a chance! How cool. I typically go cheap bc like you I always seem to lose or misplace my glasses. Always wanted to try oakleys, but with my history scared to commit :)

  30. you sold me with the rose colored frames. they look awesome!
    Alysia @ Slim Sanity recently posted..MIMM #12: marvelous in my vacation

  31. I have worn the same pair of sunglasses for 4 years now. I spent a little more for them then I usually would, but they have proven to be GREAT quality!
    Tosha @ Twenty-Five Plus recently posted..PopSugar Must Have Luxury Edition – 2012

  32. I tend to go the cheap route (I’ll admit it). My mom swears by GOOD sunglasses and used to work in the industry… but I can’t bring myself to do it. I know if I had one good pair, I would never look back though!

  33. Nance Lehman says:

    It is so much better for your eyes to have a good pair of sunglasses!

  34. Love the sunglasses on you (and your mega-watt smiles, as always!) <3

  35. I used to never spend a lot of money on sunglasses because I felt like I always broke them, but once I bought a nice, more expensive pair, I never went back!

  36. You sound like me! I never splurged on sunglasses… but I did win a pair of Oakleys from Amanda (runtothefinish) and LOVE them! Yours are so cute!

  37. Cassandra de Turk Hoffert says:

    I have some cheap sunglasses and some expensive ones. I stash the cheap ones in my husbands car or in my gym bag. I keel the expensive ones in their cases.

  38. I have always gone cheap because I am exactly like you Lindsay I loose them, just throw them in my bag and they get broken. You name it I have probably done it. That is so nice that you & Sunglasses Shop are giving away a pair of Oakleys! They look great on you so I am sure they must be fantastic!

  39. I have both pricier and cheaper sunglasses, but tend to wear my raybans over and over.

  40. I usually buy cheap sunglasses mainly because I cannot talk myself into paying big bucks for a fancy pair although it might be worth the investment!

  41. I usually go with the less expensive sunglasses but I would love to have a pair of really nice ones! :)
    Sarah Beth recently posted..Holiday Fruit Cookies

  42. I go cheap for my day to day sunglasses because I either lose them or scratch them up from just tossing them in my purse. I do have better glasses for running though.

  43. Dana Joost says:

    I always by cheap because my kids ruin them.

  49. I used to only buy the cheap kind but a couple of years ago invested in Oakleys for driving and I love them! Would love another pair 😀

  50. as much as i would love nice sunglasses, not going to lie, i have the same old pair of cheap Target sunglasses. i would love a nice pair though. i love accessories to the max, but on a tight budget, you gotta make cuts somewhere.
    Debbie (Accidently Delish) recently posted..By: Jessie

  51. I have always had to buy the cheapies as money is tight these days and Expensive sunglasses are not a “must have”. I would love to have a nice pair to keep in a case, and have them just for me, and not have to share with anyone else! 😉
    Louise Cunningham recently posted..2012 a review

  52. I tend to spend more on sunglasses! Especially on my latest pair, some Oakleys! I am dying to get these in the giveaway though!!

  53. I’m always scared to buy a cheap pair. I worry about UV Rays not being blocked, my Optometrist ALWAYS asks me what sun protection I wear and stresses the benefits of a good pair, plus a good pair can keep away crows feet!

  54. I’ve always worn Ray Bans and Guess sunglasses, but your Oakley’s make me want to switch it up!

    Have a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve Lindsay!

  58. Kristine B says:

    LOVE Oakleys!

  59. Natalie Wester says:

    Amanda recently posted..One Word: 2013

  65. I sometimes spend more than I want to admit :-)

  66. Whaaat? Those sunglasses are gorgeous! and the person behind them even more so 😉 I use cheap $10 ones too… the pair I wear, a flight attendant friend bought for me on a trip to China, they were $2… I’ve had them for 5 years… I’ve always lusted after Oakley’s.

  67. I usually go for the cheap sunglasses because I’m really good at losing them. I think a quality pair would be a nice addition though!
    Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries recently posted..2013: A Year of New Beginnings

  68. Up until recently I never wore sunglasses at all… I finally bought a pair of Oakley’s that I love and keep in my car and wear every time I drive. Now I just need to get two more pairs (one for my husbands car and one to wear when running/biking).
    Kate recently posted..2012 … was a very good year.

  72. Lauren M. says:

    When it comes to sunglasses, I have one nice pair that I love and take great care of but then I have multiple $5 pairs that I don’t really care about scratching or getting dirty (perfect for beach days in FL!)

  73. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I usually buy cheap sunglasses because I always seem to break them or lose them.

  74. I use to always tend to go for cheaper ones because I’d always lose or scratch them, but last year I got a pair of Ray Ban Aviators and am in love with them! I’ve suprisingly kept them in really good shape!

  75. My fun around the town sunglasses tend to be cheap ones since I normally break them easily (and stupidly – think running over them with my car, losing them, sitting on them, etc). I did buy a pair of Nike running sunglasses this past summer to wear during my outdoor workouts and love them!

  76. Thomas Murphy says:

    i buy cheap ones

  77. I don’t own any sunglasses other than the ones I wear to run in…I would love some new ones!

  78. i have spent a good amount of money on sunglasses in the past, but lately i haven’t been paying much more than $30 for a pair because i tend to lose them or sit on them lol great giveaway! thanks!

  79. I tend to buy cheap sunglasses. I’m prone to breaking or losing them. Maybe I’ll do better if I invest in a pair of good ones…

  80. LOVE these glasses…I can never afford the higher end ones and always have to settle for the drugstore variety. These with the rose-tinted frame are sweet!!!

  81. I always go for the cheap ones. I sure could use a pair of really good sunglasses! 😉

  83. I usually have to spend a lot because I wear prescription sunglasses, BUT just this year I got contacts. :) I still like to think of sunglasses as an investment though.

  84. I tend to go cheap. I’ve heard lots of good things about Oakley though, so I’d love to try them!

  85. I tend to buy cheap ones more than expensive ones. I’ve only bought 1 Rayban and some 10 sunglasses from H&M. And I always wear those from H&M because I’m scared the expensive one will break :(

  86. cheap ones all the way…but if i ever get a nice pair, i will buy a case to protect them! haha :)

  90. I lose sunglasses like it’s my job!! trying to be good about the pair I keep in my car!!

  91. I like to get discounted ones at T.J. Maxx! They tend to be good quality and last a long time but certainly don’t match up to those beautiful OAKLEYS! :)

  93. i tend to go for the cheap ones

  94. I am an Oakley LOVER! They are a great company and make good quality glasses that work with any outfit, even great while running outside! :)

  95. Elinor Semira says:

    I always go for the cheap ones because I can’t afford the branded sunglasses. I rather spend it on my kid’s needs. That’s why I would love to win this so chic sunglasses just right in time for this summer. :)

  96. I am so bad about losing them/ breaking that I usually go cheap. But my hisband has this theory that if I actually took the plunge and got nice ones I would do a better job of taking care of them…its possible!
    Krysten recently posted..Resolutions, Rehashing, and Racing

  97. Like you, I tend to buy the cheap ones since I always break them. I let my boyfriend buy me the expensive ones. HAHA.
