Save or Splurge: Butterfly frame sunglasses from Prada and ASOS

Designer-sunglasses

  When it comes to sunglasses, we’ve admitted before that, given that we wear them so often (due to light-sensitive eyes, not Anna-Wintouritis, we hasten to add) we’re generally willing to look on them as an investment and pay a little bit extra.

We’d have happily paid a little bit extra for Prada’s butterfly framed sunglasses, too (£175 from NET-A-PORTER ) – until, that is, we found these looky-likies from ASOS which, colour aside, are pretty similar, but only £11.75 to Prada’s £175.

Which would you choose? Would you Save or Splurge?

    It’ll have to be “Save”. The way I lose sunglasses, I can’t afford to spend more than that.

    Those from ASOS are prettier by far, so definitely a “save” 🙂

    save. they are much ‘happier’ looking butterflies – the prada shape will add downward lines: saggy face
