  80. Loren says:

    I am feeling like a real frumpy mummy at the moment and really need to bring some cool back into my style. These could definitely do the trick.

  81. Belinda says:

    I’ve been told that my eyes have sun damage from not wearing sunglasses so would like to give these Bill Bass Wayfarers a test out. I’m not used to wearing sunglasses, but the Optometrists eye test has made me more aware of saving my eyesight as I’m still young.

  82. Nicola Lucas says:

    Because they are really cool! And I haven’t had a pair of expensive glasses in years – kids always seem to knock them, scratch them or bump them off your head so they break on the ground! Pretty please!

  83. Theresa Pieterse says:

    I would absolutely love to win these. After a big clean out of a wardrobe I have decided that If I buy anything new in 2014 I must absolutely love it, must fit right and sit perfectly. These tick all the boxes but it will be better because they are a prize. Will make my Christmas perfect.

  84. Louise says:

    It would be great to have a good pair of sunglasses, and these Bill Bass Wayfarers sound fantastic, perfect to protect my eyes which already suffer from sun damage.

  85. Katherine T says:

    These are the coolest sunnies! They are perfect for covering up “hungover” and “toddler hasn’t slept” eyes, and I would love a pair that actually shield my eyes from the sun AND look good at the same time! I’m done with cheap and nasties that break too easily or scratch. Wayfarers are top of my Christmas list!

  86. Maree McWha says:

    I’d like to win because I am feeling rather blue right now.. boyfriend is overseas for work and I have no family here to spend Xmas with.. 🙁

  87. Ck Smith says:

    I don’t own sunglasses so would love to win

  90. theresa te whaiti says:

    I didn’t realise how important it was to wear sunglasses until recently when my mum saw a specialist as a result of losing vision from sun damage. he told her the importance of wearing good quality glasses.

  91. Natalie Dick says:

    My current pair are Bill Bass but they are like 15 years old (great quality lasts!) and are a tad scratched and “horrors” a weird lavender colour – very fashionable in their time! Would love to update to a new modern scratch free pair 🙂

  92. Sarah says:

    Because I’m greedy and they’re awesome! 🙂

  93. Sarah Blair says:

    I’d love a pair of sunnies as I am tired of having headaches from squinting into the sun!!

  94. Lisa W says:

    Mine just broke 🙁 so I would love to win some, while mine were only cheap that were all that had & being Christmas time I can’t afford some more so wining these for summer would be fantastic!

  95. Erin K says:

    I would really love to win these for my mum for Christmas, she doesn’t have a decent pair of sunglasses she always has the cheap $20 pairs. I would love to win her a pair so that her eyes are protected well from the sun and at the same time being super trendy in these fabulous glasses. Fingers and toes crossed, many thanks

  96. Charlotte Matthews says:

    I’m in need of a pair just like these. All my glasses have been second hand and it would be amazing to have a pair that is new for once. Plus I would pay it forward by giving my pair away that I have now to someone who needs a pair. 🙂

  97. Ange Beaumont says:

    Wow these look awesome!! They would make a nice change from the boring black pair of glasses I bought cheaply at a market a few years ago 🙂

  98. Tania Brown says:

    Would love a new pair of sunglasses – my current ones wee screw keeps popping up and I have to tighten it with a sharp knife – don’t think they are going to last for the rest of summer 🙁

  99. Cara Thompson says:

    I would love to win them!! My eyes are wrinly like an old lady – i’m old, but not that old lol. Don’t have any sunnies & have always loved Wayfarers, I’m too much of a Westie ;o) Thanks 🙂
