I really like Karen Walker‘s eyewear line. Sure, a few of the styles might look a little out there, but the Super Duper Strength sunnies below are absolutely fabulous, don’t you agree? I especially like them in tortoise, but there’s no way I could justify spending a whopping $250 on a pair of sunglasses. Luckily for me (and possibly you as well) I found a couple of great and wallet-friendly alternatives that look just as stylish as the designer original!
