Throwing Shade


Guys: I love me some designer things. Problem: I have an entry-level job and I live in one of the most expensive cities in the nation. Needless to say, your girl avidly looks for sales and steals on designer things.

Specifically, I love designer shades. One of the first purchases I ever made when I was a post-grad was a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses. I felt flawless. I wanted more shades. Yet, my budget wouldn’t allow me to buy a crazy amount of designer shades. What’s a broke girl to do?


Enter DITTO. They have a really amazing Endless Eyewear program where you can rent out as many designer shades as you want for only $24/month. They even have designer glasses/frames as well to rent out, if you want to give your beloved contacts a break. Netflix, for sunglasses basically. A broke girl’s dream!

In the top photo I’m rocking a pair of Givenchy 881’s, which I’m probably going to buy for myself cause they’re that flawless. Bottom photo, I’m wearing Selima Optique ‘Amanda’. I took a quick style quiz on DITTO’s website and both of these pairs were recommended for me/my face shape. I think both pairs suit me quite well, so DITTO knocked it out of the park!

You can try the Endless Eyewear program on me: use the code ‘ALICIATENISE’ for your first month free! And please send me pix afterwards in your stunner shades. Did I really just say stunner shades? Is it 2007? I’m going to stop myself now.

  2. I constantly see designer sunglass that I want to buy, and I typically settle for some knock-offs that look like the real thing. Now knowing about DITTO may allow me to stop buying the knock-offs and just rent what I really want. Thanks for the tip!
