That Was A Bad Idea

UPDATE: Ok, so, does anyone have a Sunglass Hut coupon???

So anyhow, I'm going to Death Valley this week. I stopped at the mall (early - you know, for "beat the gang bangers" deals) to look for a pair of splendiferous Aviators. C'mon - you're driving through the desert in a convertible with no hairspray in your hair and you're wearing fatigue green. You know you want a pair of those babies to make the most of the experience.

First pair I try on at Sunglass hut are a hit. I mean they're perfect. Gorgeous as a matter of fact. The nice lady helping me did a great job of picking out what would be right. She thought I should go with the amber, but I kind of want to be a purist and get the green. Cause you know, my eyes are green and all.

I could get them. I could also realize that $160 for a pair of sunglasses is NOT part of my trip budget. If it were, I'd probably spend it in other ways. I could go with the nonpolarized for $120. Still. Damn, why did I go do this again?

So I hit a few cheapy stores to see if the same shape was available in teen-budget form. Nooo. Not only were they not - but what was there was simply awful. Horrible to be exact. Hmm. Maybe the mailman will bring me a coupon or something. Which isn't going to happen but it's a nice thought.

What would you do - go with what you really want? Or try to sneak it in under your Flexible Spending Account card which after all, this IS eyecare....

You should buy the ones that you really want. I don't think that $160.00 is unreasonable for a good quality pair of sunglasses.

Check out a good sporting goods store. You can usually get reasonable prices on good quality polarized sunglasses where they sell fishing supplies.
