Spec-tacular

So, I got a new pair of glasses, specifically to wear at work when I'm staring at my computer screen, which unfortunately, is what I do for the greater part of my day.  My optometrist and our IT guy have been suggesting this for quite some time, as my bifocals are not computer-friendly.  I had found these vintage frames (made in France, no less), at The Sentimentalist, and I thought this was the perfect excuse to use them.  I'd never seen frames this colour with rhinestones (which are all there), and the uptilt on the frame was a shape I hadn't seen before; kind of a squared-off cat's eye.  The word that everyone, including the staff at my optometrist's office, has used to describe them is "unusual".  When I wear them, my friend Heather calls me Madge.

  7. Modified cat's eyes have definitely been on my radar. These are a great example and look great. I love them. For real.
