It's Giant Vintage's CEO's 23rd birthday! Annabelle Gonzalez founded Giant Vintage after already enjoying so much fashion success across red carpets and music videos. She's brought that innate sense of style and passion for fashion to the vintage sunglasses arena, and we're so glad she did.

As a surprise for customers, her 23rd birthday gift to you is a specially curated collection of some of her favorite vintage and vintage-inspired styles. Before we get into the collections, let's learn a little more about why Annabelle is such a style icon.

Annabelle: A True Style Entrepreneur

Annabelle has been so successful styling others throughout her career. She embraces authenticity and inclusivity, and wants to make those qualities attainable for more people via one-of-a-kind vintage sunglasses.

Before starting Giant Vintage, Annabelle was lucky enough to have many stylish, fashionable folks in her life. First at home, then when she went to CHAMPS in Van Nuys, California. She noticed that the coolest people were doing their own thing. That encouraged her to explore her passions for vintage clothing and music for inspiration to create her own collections.

At 23, she's already a successful, celebrated young entrepreneur, mom, and Latina influencer.

Less is sometimes more. That's why the subtler look of rimless glasses has never gone out of style. The IDGAF Rimless Rhinestone Sunglasses give you the attitude in the name. Flaunt your rebelliousness with studded gems across the temple and upper lens. These are unisex, one-of-a-kind vintage sunglasses. Check out the color of the lenses in the pink version. They're super cute.

Oversized Sunglasses

If minimalism isn't really your thing, oversized glasses probably are. Annabelle's been highlighting the current trend for these big, bold frames recently, and there are a few prime examples in her Birthday Collection.

Take a look at the CEO Oversized Y2K Sunglasses. These manage to combine two trends in one, bringing together early-century vibes with a chunky frame. Available in black, super dark, and tortoiseshell, these glasses are a real showstopper.

Another great oversized look is the wraparound sunglasses. These SEXY Wraparound Shield Sunglasses echo the stylings of browline sunglasses but with a funky, curved silhouette. Look casual in amber lenses or go mysterious with the smoky option.
