But of course I also wear vintage precription glasses and yesterday I received 2 new vintage pairs!
The first one is these blue 50's glasses. I bought them one month ago at Viva Las Vegas.
I love the nice details on 50's glasses: rhinestones, colors, stunning design...
Just a details of the dress I wore, look at those cute pockets!!!!
And here is my second new pair and the best about them it's that my optician made them for me for FREE!!!! He told me it's always with a great pleasure that he can work on these amazing vintage pieces!!!
These ones are french and was bought in a flea market in Belgium here. When you are wearing prescription glasses you need clear ones but also prescription sunglasses!
Look at these pearl effect and at the branch design!!!
You have perhaps notice my shoes, I really love them! They are repro from Rockets Original. I like this brand, the only flaw that I see on their repros is that their soles are made of plastic.
Here is my first pair of vintage glasses, I bought them about 7 years ago on Ebay. It's really difficult to buy glasses online, you can not see if the style, the color or even the size can fit your face! You must check and ask for all measurements and check with your actual pair.
But I was lucky with these ones, they fit perfectly!!! They were made by SELECTA sold in the USA but made in FRANCE because my country was the world largest producer of frames in the 50's.
When you are blonde with clear eyes, it's better to choose light colors. When I try on dark frames I look like a harsh teacher.... It's unbelievable to see how glasses can change a face!
Here is my second pair, bought at the Rockabilly Rave in England in 2009.
I love this pink color, they can match so many outfits!!!
Vintage 50's glasses are often really narrow and I have quite a large face so it's hard to find something that can fit perfectly.
I also wanted to show you in this busy post my lucite bracelet with blue shells!!! When a lot of vintage lovers are crazy about bakelite, I think that lucite is really as nice and for a cheaper price... I can not believe that people can buy a bakelite bangle for more than $200!!!
And here is my last pair of prescription glasses! They really have a crazy design!!!!
The brand written inside branches is RAY BAN, I don't know if it's the true RAY BAN that we know now.
The design is so crazy that I don't wear them so often...
I also have plenty of other sunglasses but not prescription ones from the 30's to the 50's.
My husband don't need prescription lenses, it's a pity for him because he would really like to wear some 40's or 50's glasses.
But he has a great collection of vintage sunglasses!!!
If you are wearing prescrition lenses and wear vintage clothes you HAVE to wear vintage glasses, it's so much fun to see people reaction when they notice your cat eyes glasses!!!!
Do you need prescription lenses ?
Do you wear or want to wear vintage glasses ?
