 I really want a nice pair of sunglasses, but just can't make myself pay more than $15 for a pair. I feel like sunglasses & purses get worn everyday, so I "should" spend more on them to get nice ones I really like, as opposed to say a shirt or dress that I may wear once a month, but I seem to spend way more on.

What do you pay for sunglasses? Where do you buy them? How many do you have? Why?

I've never found a pair of sunglasses that flatter my face. I've got a weird head or something. If I found a pair, I would definitely be willing to pay more for better quality.

Go to tj maxx or Marshall's, you can find pairs there that retail for $100 marked down to $8. I've had $200 shades before that aren't as good and I take my shades very seriously because I have a condition that makes my eyes very sensitive to light.

I paid around $100 for mine, but that was over 10 years ago. They are still in perfect condition. I never set them down and always put them in a case in my purse. I wear them year around, everyday. I got them @ sunglass hut

 That's the thing, I was looking at Wal-Mart, and I couldn't find any "cheap" ones I liked! So now I am lost at where to go and what the average price is at other places bc I've never shopped for shades anywhere else really.

About 200 $ but they are prescription.

Without. .. about 40 $ , I get 200 $+ glasses at that price.

The quality is noticeably better.

My first exensive pair were $120. I took good care of them and had them over a year. My second pair were Oakleys. They were a Christmas present and when I looked they were $190.
