Because I’m blind as a bat, I’ve been wearing glasses since 5th grade. I made the move to contact lenses years ago, however I have to say that I still totally love my glasses.
A few years back I found some really cool vintage frames at the Vintage Fashion Expo and they've been my faves for ages. I love old frames with little embellishments (like teensy rhinestones or fancy designs on the arms) and I really love cat eye frames—unfortunately I have a big ol head and if I wear cat eyes I look like a lady from the Far Side cartoons. But I really especially love dark, old timey "grandpa glasses" on girls. There’s just something about a masculine, heavy frame on a sweet girlie face that looks so cool & hip to me. I'm also loving the bigger 80s Urkel frames on some of these ladies. Call it nerd chic or sexy librarian, I think it’s adorable. I really should wear my glasses more often.
Gee, don't I totally look smahta with these?? As a lil tip, most optometrists can easily put lenses in vintage frames for you.
