Dear Gucci Sunglasses


Dearest, Most Beautiful Gucci Sunglasses That Would Look Perfect Perched On My Freckled Nose,

I love you. Oh Lament that you cost $260.00 without the possibility of going on sale until probably December! But by that time you'll most likely be sold out or I'll be irritated from waiting too long for you and find (gasp! dare I say)prettier shades. Why Why Why do you have to cost so much? You know that I refuse to pay that much on principle alone. Why, you ask? Because, my love, you're made of plastic not platinum. And besides, I could care less about your name- Gucci, smoochy, it's all the same to me, hun-I could give a rat's, er, behind about your name. Do you see any logo handbags hanging in my closet? Hell no. Ok... you got me on the shoes but shoes are different. Shoes are sacred. And anyway, not a damn one of them, no matter what they cost have a logo of any kind on them. I simply refuse to pay a ridiculous amount of money so that I can be a sheep to advertise for free and be one of those people who walk around with their logos screaming,"Look at me, please look at me. Everyone check out this logo because you need to know how much this bag is worth/I am worth," on the inside. Those logos are all ugly to me anyway. If your designers could come up with a logo pleasing to my eye, you might just win me over but until then, not happenin'. But that's not the point. The point is, I love you. I have never been in love with or wanted an accessory like this. I'm not even sure why I love you so much. But, my darling, I refuse, I absolutely refuse to purchase you until your price goes below 200. My dear, believe me, I am tempted, I am tormented-I love you that much. But tempt me no more! My love is steadfast but so are my principles dammit. Why do you have to be the perfect shade of browns and beiges that go with every ensemble in my closet, why? Why did you do this to me? I search and I search and the best you can do for me is $234.00? Dearest, that's just not enough. Prove to me that you want me to wear you and go on sale, I beg you. If you truly love me, you will find a way! I'm waiting...I'm waiting. Don't make me wait too long.

Yours forever or at least until I find another pair worthy of my love for under 200 dollars dammit,
Angel

PS I know my shirt in my profile pic has a logo on it, dear. But it's such a pretty logo and the shape of a heart! A Heart! Not just some ridiculous letters in a ridiculous pattern. And anyway, I paid less than $20.00 for that shirt. So you see, dearest sunglasses? I just. won't. do. it. Sorry.

I saw you there my dear for 98 but you were a fake! a fake! I'll keep looking!

Whiskeymarie said...

Resist!
Resist, i say!

I am so hard on sunglasses that the only ones I'll buy are of the $7-12 variety.
I would lose the $200 ones within 3.5 seconds of getting them.

MsLittlePea said...

I just bought a pair last winter for about 80 but they're still like new so it's not like I'm suffering. The ones I wore before that, I had for about 7 years so I don't feel bad about about spending a little.

Go on! Splurge! You only have one life to live, so make it enjoyable!

Do they have a model name or something of that sort? And if I were to find a pair, how could I tell if they were legit or not?

I figure we have a lot of great sunglass 'boutiques' here, it's worth a look.

MsLittlePea said...

It doesn't really have a name. I had the saleslady write down the model number for me: 2933.
I don't really know how to tell a real one from a fake one. The only reason I knew from the ebay picture was that it had the model number but it looked like completely different glasses....oh well. I like the lighter colored ones. I'm going to check at an outlet store when I go visit my sis next month.

Aimee said...

They are super cute. But I'm with you on not spending the money. ::sigh::

thailandchani said...

I can't see spending that much, either. That is what I pay for my prescription glasses.. which have all kinds of extras.. like prisms, and tinting.. and....

Geez! For sunglasses? Unbelievable!


Peace,

But on the other hand, if you need help in rationalizing, well then, my dear, you've come to the right place.

You own a pair that cost $80. The coveted designer ones cost $260, which is $180 more than you have already been willing to spend. Now, you have also seen them elsewhere for $234, which is $154 more than the $80 you were willing to spend.

So, you just have to decide if they are worth $154 to you.

It's a lot, but if you amortize the price over say, three years, assuming that they remain in good condition, then at $234, you will have spent a mere $78 per year for those glasses.

Love,
The Queen of Rationalization

P.S. Don't mention it.

MsLittlePea said...

So I would be saving money then???Hmm I do like that explanation....

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Oh, yes. Definitely.

Glad I could help.

Post a picture.

Rebecca said...

no. Don't do it! What if you lose them... or...or... sit on them???

I lose or break every pair of sunnies I buy in about a week...clearly you are not the same or you would not even be considering this madness...

But hey - if you really, really want them...if you're going to suffer without them...then you must buy them!

I love the Stuart Weitzman pumps. The toe is just open enough that it doesn't look like a sandal but not totally 80s peep toe either. Very sleek.
