I'm at the point where I need to order my next pair of Del Sol sunglasses.

I know they aren't fancy name brand sunglasses. (What do the cool kids wear today? In high school it was Ray Bann's. Is that still cool?)

Anyway, when we were on our 1st Anniversary trip a few years ago, we went on a cruise and on the cruise, we went to the Del Sol store.

In case you don't know, Del Sol specializes in merchandise that changes color in the sun. Now, granted, I think a lot...okay, most...of their stuff is pretty cheesy. But I love two things: the nail polish and the sunglasses.

The nail polish, I think, is self-explanitory. But the sunglasses are pretty cool. Not just because they change colors. But the sunglasses come with a lifetime guarantee - if you ever lose, break or scratch your sunglasses, they replace them. For "free." (That is, for $10 S&H) Pretty sweet deal.

Anyway, my glasses are REALLY scratched after almost 3 years. So I wrote them and they are going to replace them. Yipee! Unfortunately, I can't exchange them in time for our vacation next weekend, so I'll be walking around squinting through scratched lenses, but that's okay.

In the meantime, I need to pick out replacement glasses, because they don't carry my style anymore. Sad face.

I've narrowed it down to a few.
I think I know which way I'm leaning. But I'm not totally decided yet. Anyway, to see more styles, click here.

Nope, I'm not getting any freebies for this post, except for the already standing guarantee from the purchase of every pair of sunglasses. Which, I have to say, is a pretty sweet deal.


  1. I like the middle ones the best, but they are all cute.

  2. I love the first one and that style is really in this year. Kind of a flash back to the 80's but I think it's cute!

  3. ooo i love del sols!! everytime we got on a cruise i always have to go in there! i love their nail polish too!! its also funny to buy the clear kind and when your husband is sleeping to paint his toenails...adn then when he wakes up and you go to the beach his toes turn pink!!!!

  4. I love Del Sol...we purchased the coolest t-shirt there for our son on a cruise as well. In Mexico. I wish it would have lasted a bit longer, the cruise and the I think I didn't care for it the way I was supposed to, but we were in Okinawa and it really got worn a lot, my son was so delighted to see the colors change everytime he went outside!! Maybe we should go on another cruise just to get the shirt again.

  5. I love all three of those sunglasses, so I can't really be of much help! I have never had an expensive pair of sunglasses because I lose them, drop them, scratch or break them way too easily to spend a fortune on them. My favorite pair are the ones I have now. Got them for $9.99 at NY&C! And they already have their first scratch! LOL!

  6. I like the last one best! Good luck picking. Maybe you'll need to pick two? ;)

  7. I love the second pair!!! So cute!

  8. omg! I am going to raid my piggy bank to get my a pair! I never have cute sun glasses because I lose/scratch/sit on them way too often to make it worth it. But seriously, a lifetime guarantee-- thats AMAZING!!! And they are SOOOO cute. I am digging the ones with flowers, but am loving anything and everything pink!

  9. I love them all but I like the 1st and 3rd pair best. And color changing anything is cool in my book.

  10. I like the third pair the best...but you've probably already decided by now!
