Who Wants to Look Like a Bug?

Good news for you! The Olsen twins are bringing their Insect-Chic to the wide world of sunglasses!

Uhm... Seriously?

Now, I love giant sunglasses as much as the next girl, but the Olsen's take it to a whole new level.

WHAT IS THAT? They have TINY faces. There is NO need for sunglasses that large! Don't get me wrong, I think the Olsens are pretty damn adorable in most cases (aside from when they feel the need to dress like bag ladies), but this is is just... Blah.

They will be releasing four different styles (I'm not sure if those four will range in color/design or if it will just be four standard styles) through their high-end line, The Row, and have partnered with famed luxury eye wear designer, Linda Farrow.

This is what they came up with...

Is this a joke? I've definitely seen these sunglasses at Target.

The best part? The Olsen's sunglasses will be available in the awesomely affordable price range of $325 - $390.


Who do they think they are? Chanel?

Party foul, Mary Kate & Ashley.

I'm disappointed in you. You are not that famous or that talented that you need to be charging those prices for plastic. Seriously. Though, I guess you can argue that no one should be charging those prices for plastic... But let's face it. If you buy $300 sunglasses you're buying a name and nothing else. But what do you get from The Row? No instantly recognizable double-C's from Chanel, no Gucci stirrups, not even a sparkling D&G. What the hell is the point?

I do not approve.

What do you guys think? Yay or nay on the Olsen's sunglasses?
