Ray Ban Mania

You know summer is close when people start wearing their Ray Bans! I've never owned a pair but have always been intrigued by this fashion. Ray Bans were created back in 1937 by Bausch & Lomb originally for US Army pilots. The pilots wanted something both protective and elegant. The sunglasses took off after that!

With summer approaching, I'm wondering if I need to finally break down and buy a pair. To all my fellow bloggers out there, do you own a pair? And if so, what color do you have? If you don't own Ray Bans, are you craving a pair like me?

I have the classic black pair, they are so old and scratched, but still some of my favorites. I prefer now bigger lens ala glamour Hollywood style.

Nikosmommy said...

I have a pair of original 'aviators' (women's) with a gold frame, and a pair of black 'Wayfarers'. Normally I like big round black Chanel sunnies, ala Victoria Beckham...but I also LURVE my Ray Bans. Depends on the day/mood/outfit. I think turquoise and teal are the hottest colours right now...
Ray Bans are totally classic and so hot right now!

I have the black and the tortoise shell ones from a while back, both Wayfarer, but those baby blue ones are calling me! Lately though I have been wearing larger sunglasses.

Semi Expat said...

Yes own a classic tortoiseshell frame pair but really would like to get my hands on a pair my mother has had for years... however she is hanging on to them! (she's so cool by default at age 73!)

carissa @ lowercase letters said...

i don't have a pair. i don't want them... yet. i'm sure i will have to have some after seeing everyone wear them this summer.

Holly said...

Aw...these were sweet.

Meg said...

I definitely want a pair!

Gracie said...

I love them but I have never gotten a pair either. I wouldn't mind one too. I love the blue pair. So pretty.

darlingdee said...

I adore wayfarers. I have a black and white pair but I am dying to buy a baby blue pair.

Fabulous post. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I've become a follower! Would love for you to become one if you wish.

Chelsea Robbins said...

omg, they're so hot.

I want a pair as well.

shari @ little blue deer said...

I have the aviator style, in gold, and I love them! I'm not switching to Wayfarers, even though everyone is wearing them now, I'm staying stuck in 2005 with the aviators. LOL!

Monica said...

I've been wanting to get the Ray Ban aviators, but do I really need another pair of sunglasses...YES:)

daisychain said...

Oh I so want a pair of raybans.

Daphne said...

I also have been pondering this. I have never been a big fan of the style either but may be a pair in a cool color like that pale blue or red or pale green might be fun. Might consider it if I found one like it on sale for a good price.

I use to have a pair but last year they got this huge scratch on them and haven't worn them since. They were great though!

Savvy Gal said...

Beth said...

Thanks so much for the sweet comment and for stopping by the blog! Glad to know I'm not alone =)

And I definitely say yes to the Raybans. I have red wayfarer sunglasses and my reading prescription frames are Rayban as well. Love them.

Hey girl,
Thanks so much for making my day with your sweet comment!
I'm likin your place here- especially the Ray Bans. Gaa! A few years ago when aviators were starting to catch on my mom gave me her old Ray Bans- they were AWESOME, except for this weird ear-hook attachment that kind of hurt after a bit. And then they broke.
I'm trying to resist buying Ray Bans just because EVERYONE has them...but I really might give in!

Take care!

awful beautiful disarray said...

I love these sunglasses but have such a hard time splurging on something I'm guaranteed to lose. :o Maybe this summer I'll invest in a pair lol

Love your blog! It's so fascinating! :)

Elle said...

I love classic raybans even though wayfarers look horrible on me! Those teal sunnies are so fun!

bananas. said...

ahh i need some!!! the sun is out, the skies are blue...it's ray ban season. woohoo!

Trish said...

You are so creative and so awesome with your posting. I love Ray-Bans! Matt and I have been wearing them for as long as I can remember. Me, the classic aviators, and Matt, well I'm not sure of the "style" but more of a subdued style, a la golfer, but Ray-Ban nonetheless. My younger siblings have been WAY into the classic "Wayfarer" look for years (way too trendy for me but CUTE, especially baby sister in her hot pink glasses). I bet you'd look like a million in them! Go try on a pair and let us know what you think love! :)

sayablack said...

Awesome pics!
I looove your selection.

♥ Rose ♥ said...

love Ray-Ban! (L) I have the classic aviator sunglasses!! but I also love the wayfarers in every colour! xoxo!

Angie S said...

I love the Wayfarer style of Ray Ban, but don't think I can pull it off.

If got a pair I would want a pink pair. So fun!!

carolina postcard said...

I want some too! Black or blue please.

SabinePsynopsis said...

No, I don't own a pair either, but like you, I always feel I should. It seems like a Singer sewing machine or a Miele washing machine, or ar Chanel 2.55... The gold standard.

icandy... said...

Thank you so much for popping by my place!
I have never owned a pair of Raybans... I'm too hard on my sunglasses so I just buy the cheap-os! :) Mine get lost and sat on wayyyyy too much! *hehe*
It's very nice to meet you!
Have a wonderful day! :))

Brianna! said...

When I put my Ray Ban on this morning I thought of your post...!!:)

OneCraftyFox said...

I have to admit I'm not a fan of the brand, but my boyfriend has a pair. They were able to fit them with a prescription. I bought a pair of over sized coach sunglasses a few months ago. They were able to fit a prescription as well which is harder due to the shape.

Hope your week is off to a fab start, darling!

Missy said...

he he love that we both posted Ray Bans!
