You guys! I have to tell you about these sunglasses! Now, I am sure you have probably all heard of them by now because their latest collab is with Kylie Jenner, and anything that girl touches blows up big time, and they have been seen on the always gorgeous Gigi Hadid, but in case you live under a rock.. you need to be checking out Quay. They are killin’ it right now. I just wanted to share about my experiences with them! I stumbled upon them when I was needing new sunglasses, and too lazy to drag my butt to a store to get them. Yes. The level of laziness reached new heights that day. I was scrolling around online and saw a photo of Gigi Hadid in the Cafe Racer style. I loved them, and immediately thought, oh god.. they are probably like so expensive, some high end brand that no normal person can afford, and I will never own them. After some quick online investigating I found out that they were made by Quay. (Pronounced “key”) I headed over to their website, after checking them out on Instagram of course. I was pleasantly surprised! Their prices are seriously decent! They are mid-range.. roughly like $50-$100 a pair. So I mean.. they aren’t outrageously expensive, but they certainly are not your $5 gas station specks either.
“In case you live under a rock..

I poked around and decided that I wanted to try 3 styles.. French Kiss (Clear/Rose), Santa Fe (Rose/Pink), and Cafe Racer (Black/Smoke). – They happened to be sold out of the Cafe Racer in the color that I wanted.. but luckily Nordstrom had my back on that pair 😉
They ended up shipping out within a couple of days, and arrived to me about a week later, which isn’t so bad for delivery to the other side of the world. When they arrived I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning!
All 3 pairs arrived in great condition, and in a soft pouch case! They are not metal frames like they kinda appear to be in the photos but they are pretty good quality regardless, so I don’t let it get to me. They are nice and light, but not so light that you feel like they may crumble apart at any moment. If you have bought cheap sunglasses in the past, you know what I am talking about.
Okay, a quick rundown of each pair and I’ll let ya get on with your day…
French Kiss: I love these!! Like.. I don’t know what else I can say other than: They. Are. Awesome! I chose the clear/rose ones and I am so happy that I did. They have become my go-to glasses. I love how they can be worn casual, perfect for a lunch date, or you can easily dress them up if you are off to a wedding or event! They are extremely versatile and every one that I have shown them to has asked me if I will let them have them, or if they can buy them from me. No. and no. but if you want to get your own pair, you can do that riiiiiiiight… here.
Cafe Racer: Let’s be real. These are the shit. They are bold, and loud, and in your face. The best hangover sunglasses. Put these on when you wanna give life the middle finger, and be in your own world. Or, put them on when you want to be bold, and make a statement. Just put them on, okay? You’ll fall in love. They cover basically my whole face, which I am totally ok with, and bonus! They don’t weigh a ton. Which is nice! Nothing like your face hurting because your sunglasses are so heavy, especially on a hot sweaty day. Ugh.. no thank you! If you wanna jump on the bad bitch train you can buy your ticket …. here. (In case you didn’t get my sarcasm, you’re not actually buying a ticket to anything.. it’s just an expression..and i sort of cant believe i have to explain that lol!)
Santa Fe: If I am being totally 100% honest with you.. they are my least fav of the bunch..on me. I still do like them, but they are obvi too big for my face.. and so I don’t feel completely at home in them. I still wear them anyway, because they are super cute, and I do receive compliments on them (not to toot my own horn or anything! LOL!) so they must not look as awkward as I think. I do love the color, style, and the idea of them. They are always in my bag as my backup pair… just in case! These will honestly go with anything. Get yo self some.. here.
I tried to get ya’ll a discount code, but at time of writing I’ve had no such luck, but if I hear back from them at all, I will get back to you!.. So, in the mean time.. save your pennies, check them out, and let them know I sent ya!
