    Promising review: "Wore these on vacation at Lollapalooza in Chicago! It was great for keeping the sun out my eyes but still keeping the day bright so I could see everything.

    Felix Gray sunglasses are awesome! Not only are they stylish and cute, but they also protect my eyes and vision (which I need since I stare at a computer all day) by filtering blue light. I have the Hamilton style in gold, as you can see above, and they're definitely on trend for the summer! They have many more styles to choose from, plus optical lens too. Try them out for yourself!
