Confessions of a Sunglasses Junkie


Picture of Kim wearing sunglassesHaving light-colored eyes have always made me a bit sensitive to sunlight. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a pair of shades either over my eyes or on top of my head. They are a part of my uniform. ZZ Tops “Cheap Sunglasses” was my theme song.

Then I got Lasik and on my way out of the doctor’s office, I was handed a pair of Maui Jims. My life forever changed.

I cannot exactly say how many pairs of Maui Jims I have previously or even currently own. I’m like that Grandma that collects elephants. You just never know where you’ll find a pair in my house. I may have a pair of Ray-Bans and some Ralph Laurens (do they even count?) and I just got a cool pair of Costas for my birthday but basically I am an MJ snob. Seriously.

Until now.

My niece Melanie recently informed me that she was already for Lake Season. She was wearing a pair of FLOATABLE sunglasses. Of course, I had to try them on. My life forever changed. 

Thes KZ Shades checked all my required boxes.

  1. Plastic Frames-check
  2. Lightweight- (verrrry) Check
  3. Molded Nose bridge- 2nd most important feature. I hate when my shades pull out my hair.
  4. Polarized lenses -1st most important feature
  5. BONUS: They FLOAT!!!

To be honest, I’ve not yet been able to tell the difference in the lenses between these shades and my very high-end sunglasses.

  1. For some odd reason one of my earliest CF memories is of you walking in so happy about your MJs! So fun! And I agree- a good pair of shades is priceless!
