“Whoever said money can’t buy happiness doesn’t know where to shop!” In some ways, this saying is true!!! Sure, shopping and material things can’t solve the problems of the world. But you know that feeling when you’re so in love with this certain piece that you’ve been wanting for over a year and you finally got them? Ahhh… just pure bliss! I am the happiest girl in the world right now! I finally got ’em round sunglasses I’ve been longing for! And it’s not just any round sunglasses, it’s my beloved…
It’s Prada’s Minimally Baroque Round Sunglasses from their Spring/Summer ’11 Collection that I told you about last year! Remember this post? Yes, it’s been that long! You see, while I have been obsessing about these sunnies since last year, I find it expensive for $290. I can get Gucci’s, Dior’s and Prada’s for less than $200 at Neiman’s Last Call, Saks Off Fifth or Nordstrom Rack! This style however won’t be going to the clearance racks because they are always sold out. Just check out the many celebrities wearing this style up to now! There are so many celebs who own at least one color… from Selma Blair to Eva Mendes, Ashley Olsen to Gwen Stefani, also not shown, Fergie, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Evan Rachel Wood, Olivia Wilde, Kourtney Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Zoe Saldana and more! Yes, there are a lot of celebs who love ‘em Prada Baroque Sunglasses!

Fast forward to this year… I was reminded of them once more and thought to myself, perhaps I need to get them now before they totally sell out. Plus, I’m trying to complete my must-have sunglasses collection already. So the other day, I went to Northpark Center in Dallas and I took the plunge and got ‘em at Nordstrom! After all, if I want round sunglasses for myself, this SHOULD be it! This is such an iconic piece that won’t be forgotten. It’s not just a stylish piece of eyewear… It’s a form of ART and I’m in love with them!
Now, you see that empty space in the right side beside the Ray-Ban wayfarers? there’s only 1 piece missing in my must-have sunglasses list… can you guess what it is?
