Eye for Style

If only I looked this good in glasses! Aren't these bold, black frames just fabulous? A dose of chic, a pinch of sophistication, and a dollop of confidence all wrapped up into one hot eye for style!

Happy Friday, everyone!! Enjoy a wonderful weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday! xoxo Crystal

It's funny, because I am "visually challenged" and thus have worn glasses since I was eight. I wore a notorious pair of huge Sally Jessie Raphael red glasses at a very pivotal time in my adolescence and was teased mercilessly for them (the term "Coke Bottle glasses" was tossed about quite frivolously). So it is interesting indeed to see that frames of that particular style are now so chic (and I must say, the photos you posted do prove that they are!). It just goes to show the cyclical nature of fashion and how taste and what dictates style fluctuates. Kinda makes me regret breaking those glasses in half way back when... Kinda...

I love these so much I actually bought a pair! Mine are prescription though, so I can wear them instead of my contacts this fall, which I'm really excited about!

They all look so fab! I am heartbroken that my brand new pair of tortoise large roundish Marc Jacobs just got stolen/lost a few days ago...ahhh! Hope you have a great weekend Crystal!

If I had those coloured frames in the last photo crowds would clear awestruck from my path. Not a bad thing, indeed.

love these as well. i've been searching for some of my own for over a year now. it'll take time to find the perfect pair, but so worth it! happy weekend:)

Blair said...

Oh yes, such a chic look! When I was younger I used to pretend not to be able to read certain letters in the eye test in hopes that I could have glasses and look like these lovely ladies:)

Suzanne said...

love them!
i wear glasses and used to hate them, but over the past, oh, decade or so, i've definitely grown to love them :)

Fiona said...

I am adoring my black frame glasses which i finally found after quite sometimes that fit. Have a great weekend!

Sarah Klassen said...

I wish I could wear these kinds of glasses with such flair! They're awesome.

A good friend of mine carries them off so well and always looks cool -- I think the second pair and look is my favorite...those ones might even work, come to think of it :) ( I have a narrow face)

You are so sweet to mention/link me!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend also, Crystal! :)

Bold frames are great... on the right person. Unfortunately, I am not one of them. I enjoyed these pictures a lot, though. :)

Diana said...

I think it's funny how I used to wear these since I was a little kid, and I've stuck to the same style. They were so big, and "ugly" (according to everyone) and it became a signature look. Now, the same girls I grew up that made fun of me, are posting how much they love these!
I just hope the trend stays! I love all the choices you made!

THANK YOU Miy, the link is now up and running...I had the source as unknown.

I love how so many of you used to wear glasses like these when they were uncool, and now they're stylin' :)

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Goggles! Love them. I want some giant ones myself, but am not sure I want to spend the money. Internal debate...
