Okay, so I know I’m supposed to despise knock-offs and fakes. And I do! Well, to an extent.
Of course I hate sweat shops, theft, pollution, and poor quality! I passionately hate all of those things!
Still, have to admit a fondness for faux-bans (my name for fake ray-ban wayfarers) since my best friend started rocking a pair of green ones from Forever 21. Before I thought they were a little cliched and annoying…the kind of thing pretentious hipster types wear. Plus, I would never pay $120 for a piece of colored plastic when I can get the same style and eye protection from a $10 version at the mall. That’s a lie. I totally would if I could. Anyway lately ever since that day at the beach I’ve been craving a pale pink pair because my best friend is my style icon. She’s amazing. 
At the moment, I can’t even afford the $10 Fred Flare version, which is pathetic. 
Then again, it could be a good thing, since Wayfarers are so trendy everyone and their kid is getting a pair of multi-colored ones from Urban Outfitters

No. Damn it. Pink sunglasses are always going to be lovely.
