"Eyewear I thou covet"...Karen Walker

When someone just mentions the name "Karen Walker" I think of fun, funky and fashion-forward.  In particular, the New Zealand based fashion designer's eyewear collections are being worn around town by everyone who is anyone!  The only problem is, with a $300+ price tag, they may just be a bit on the "exy" side for most mere mortals (myself included - especially given that I have scratched every pair of sunnies I currently own!).

So my advice...if you can't afford something, don't buy it.  Instead, use it to inspire you to find an item that "channels the same chic for less". This principle goes for sunnies, bags, shoes, clothes, or whatever else you are coveting - except for maybe a man...hold that thought...

Case on point, I was crushing on the Karen Walker "Harvest Crazy Tort" sunnies (above), but couldn't personally justify paying the $300+ price tag. Instead, I jumped onto ASOS and found these very cool ASOS Vintage Round Lens Glasses (below).  Maybe not quite as interesting as Ms Walker's sunnies, but they still look stylish and, at under $25, I won't be stressing out if I find a little scratch...
