Because I, a girl who is not a big fan of accessorizing, needed to find a pair of sunglasses that would work all the time, while still being cute enough to be unique. I definitely was able to find this in the Vol.... They are dressy with the right amount of steez. Burly and durable while still being girly. Plus, the brown to green fade is just crazy enough to be siiiick. One last note, because they are slightly square-er, they work really well on slightly round-ed faces.
