I'??m not the first one to say this, but kids are people too. So why when it comes to sunglasses, do companies take the cheap route. Plastic lens that smash. Glitz and sparkle that'??s cheezy and more than likely will fall out. Lens that aren'??t UV protection (Fact: These make the case worse by tricking upils into thinking it'??s darker so they dilate actually letting in more harmful rays). Sure those dime-store sunglasses with the princesses on the sides are cute, but are they good for your daughter?
Kids sunwear line Eyes Cream Shades (love the name) has introduced this holiday season their dazzling "Bling Collection'?'??real sunglasses for real kids. Now kids six months and up can stay stylish while keeping their eyes safe.
Specially crafted in Laguna Hills, Calif., by a local jeweler, there'??s attention to detail not only in adornment but in frames are uniquely made so no two are exactly alike. These fabulous one-of-a-kind frame designs are customized and take approximately 7 to 10 days to make.
Lets talk about the pretty party first. The frames adorned with genuine Swarovski crystals for your little fashionista in adorable ice-cream hued colors. They use real Swarovski crystals, not the cheap and cheezy "toy like" sparkles. How sparkly do you want her to be? The Vanilla Bling frame is adorned with 10, the glamorous Choco Grape Bling has 14, and the Lime Bling has a simple six for just a pop of crystal.
Now let's talk about the function. These are sturdy glasses that have polycarbonate lenses, which are thinner and lighter than regular plastic lenses and shatter resistant (yes, you read that right'?¦shatter resistant). They offer both UVA and UVB protection, so you know these aren't just a pretty face. The larger lenses also mean more protection for your little one.
Tons of celebs have donned their little ones in Eye Cream Shades - Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's daughter, Matthew McConaughey's son, Heidi Klum's kids. These are some chic treats.
Yes, you're paying more than those $4 cutesy "sunglasses," but you're getting true protection. And a little bling. I say, go ahead and scream for Eye Cream. It's worth it.
Eye Cream Shades Bling glasses are available for $60 to $75 at eyescreamshades.com.
