Khanh't Afford Those Prices? Yeah, Who Can?

I was just checking out the current Net-A-Porter sale.

I came across some really cute sunglasses on sale.

Although the prices were dramatically slashed, I don't think there is a snowballs chance in hell that I would pay 147 POUNDS but hey, each to their own.

Emmanuelle Khanh may be a recognized designer but seriously, I can get a pair of Dior, Cavalli or Chanel sunglasses for this price and almost every person I pass on the street would appreciate the logo and price tag that came with it.

These sunglasses are pretty but they don't set my pants on fire and if my pants aren't on fire, neither is my money.

Lets face it, with how many designers in the world at the moment, there are a million other things I'd prefer to spend $300 AUD on than one pair of sunglasses by a designer that only a few people in Australia would recognize.

I'm not run or motivated by only the 'popular' labels and I don't dress for other people but I draw the line at a sky high price tag.

I know for a fact that I could get a vintage YSL purse, a new Givenchy makeup palette, a second hand Louis Vuitton bangle and a vintage Burberry scarfe for the price of one pair of these sunglasses.. And that's the price they are when they're on sale!!!!

What do you think?

Would you or have you spent over $300 on a pair of sunglasses that aren't by a 'popular' designer? I'm not talking about people who have millions of dollars, I'm talking about an every day person who has to work to pay the bills and cringes when the rent is due.

I was shocked as shit when I seen the prices. Keep in mind that every 1 Australian dollar is $1.70 in pounds.

Here are the prices in pounds and what it converts to in Australia dollars.

GBP - 369.57 reduced to 147.83
AUD - 649.05 reduced to 259.62

GBP - 339.13 reduced to 135.65
AUD - 595.59 reduced to 238.23

GBP - 286.96 reduced to 114.78
AUD - 503.96 reduced to 201.58

GBP - 265.22 reduced to 106.09
AUD - 465.78 into 186.31

GBP - 257.17 reduced to 100.87
AUD - 451.65 reduced to 177.15

GBP - 369.57 reduced to 147.83
AUD - 649.05 reduced to 259.62

Like I said, cute.

I seen a pair similar to the red ones available at Factorie on sale for $3 or two for $5.
They may not have the pretty 'EK' on the side and it's a promise that they will break in a few months but f me, I could buy 100 pairs of the cheap sunglasses for the price of one of these designer pairs.

Therefore, if my cheap pair break every 3 months, I still get 300 months (25 years) worth of these sunglasses.

Do the Emmanuelle Khanh sunglasses last 25 years?
