Sunglasses Addict

Hello, my name is Ashley and I have a sunglasses addiction.

Growing up in Florida with light eyes, sunglasses were an essential. I never leave home without them. Over the years, however, practical eye protection turned into an accessories obsession. Nothing completes an outfit like a great pair of sunglasses. They make you look instantly chic and add that finishing touch to any look. So needless to say, I have amassed quite the collection over the years (especially while in Italy where I discovered designer frames were cheaper).

The problem is designer sunglasses are expensive and my wallet can’t keep up with the latest trends and colors. I am not one of those people who wears the same basic pair with every look. I like to experiment and match my sunglasses to my outfit, or even my mood.

Well, there is exciting news for people like me… I recently discovered Ditto’s Endless Eyewear. It’s like Netflix for your face!

Basically, you sign up and pay a monthly fee, which gives you access to unlimited designer glasses and sunglasses. Hello heaven! So, for less than the cost of these pink Prada lovelies, which retail for $385, I can have a year’s worth of all the Prada’s, Karen Walker’s, Dolce and Gabbana’s, Illesteva’s, and Zac Posen’s I want (plus many more).

What I love most about this idea is the flexibility and fun you can have with it. While I love these pink Prada’s, I would never buy them in real life. If I was going to spend more than $300 on sunglasses, I would get something more neutral that would go with everything and look a bit more timeless. But now I can have my cake and eat it too. I can try all of the latest trends with zero commitment. I just send them back and pick out something new when I get tired of them. Seriously, why didn’t I think of this?

Want to try? Ditto is offering one month free with the code HISTORYINHIGHHEELS. I promise, you will be hooked. The hardest part is figuring out which pair you want to try first. But don’t worry, they have an online try-on system and personal stylists if you need help.

Is anyone else as excited about this as I am?

PS – It is so nice to be able to wear heels again!
