“I think that the #6811s in black would be fabulous for spring break. I love the vintage shape and style of these glasses. They would be perfect to wear on the beach or styled with denim shorts and a crop top! Also, the metal templates make them look luxurious.” – Astrid

“I love these Rachel Zoe-inspired sunnies. I’m a gold-only gal when it comes to accessories, so that’s the first thing I noticed. The oversized shape is so chic — I feel like a great pair of sunglasses can instantly make you feel put together. I can’t wait to take them with me on spring break — I’m headed for sunny Florida!” Emily

“These are the perfect pair of vintage-inspired sunnies to wear over my break. Although I may not be going anywhere, my hometown is the perfect vacation away from college, anyway! I plan on doing lots of thrifting for pretty vintage dresses, and what better to wear and take inspiration from than some cat eyes? I plan on frequenting my favorite coffee and antique shops, too, and these will compliment my retro outfits to a T. I’m sure the antique store workers will be swooning!” Lauren

Amanda of Handbag Heaven University

“For spring break, I will be packing cat eye sunglasses to wear as I walk up and down the Vegas Strip.  My favorite cat eyes for Vegas are the SW Rhinestone Cat Eye sunglasses because the decorative stars and rhinestones will fit in perfectly amongst all of the sparkle and shine of Vegas. My love for this look started at a young age, watching ’50s and ’60s Hollywood films like Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It takes a confident woman like Audrey Hepburn to rock a pair of cat eyes. Las Vegas is full of confident people, so there is no better time to show off the cat eye style I adore.”Amanda
