Chanel 5119 SunglassesI've never really understood folks who spend hundreds on sunglasses. Compared to those typical girly vices of handbags and shoes, sun shades just seem so ordinary. However, when I spotted this pair of Chanel sunglasses it all made perfect sense.

I don't mind admitting that my heart skipped a few beats when I spotted this particular pair of shades. The glossy red frames had me, with their cool curves and retro appeal. I love the way this vibrant hue is paired with the gray arms and smoky lenses. I also adore the discreet Chanel logos, a welcome change from those typically brash interlocking Cs.

Chanel claims that these are a unisex pair of sunglasses, but I can't imagine many men wanting to wear them. Instead they're bound to be popular with girls who favor vintage halter-neck swimsuits or retro spotted bikinis!

As is always the way with Chanel though, the price is the real kicker. At a whopping $329, I'm struggling to justify the expense. I'd be too worried about breaking these to ever throw them into my beach bag! However, if I was going to spend hundreds on a pair of sunglasses, these ones would be it.

    I’ve had mine (black) for 2 or 3 years now. I LOVE them! Of course, I had to rate value low. These are very expensive sunglasses and they’re not even polarized. Straight fashion. I have never regretted my purchase.
