dear mae,

i’ve got an itch for some new glasses. i’m thinking i need a pair of 1960’s round frames. they aren’t exactly in my budget right now, but i still had fun trying on a few pairs of frames at hollywood vintage.  i’m thinking a new pair would make a fantastic christmas gift from my loving husband (are you reading this?).  these were a few of my favorites:

my desire for round frames is inspired by edith head, and winston churchill. can you have classier inspiration? i think not. the third pair is my favorite. or maybe it’s just that picture, what do you think? do they suit me?

<3,

betty

dear mae,

they are finally here! and more wonderful than i remembered when i picked them out two weeks ago, but i just picked up my new glasses from hollywood vintage yesterday.  i have to say, if you are looking for some authentic vintage frames, this is the place to go! they have thousands of pairs to choose from from as old as glasses themselves, to big ‘ol 1980’s peggy hill frames. the sales staff was wonderful, and didn’t seem to mind when i made the poor fella pull out about 1,00 pairs from the glass cases for me to try on, and was super helpful in trying to find a style that he thought fit my look.  what i ended up with are these sweet babies:

i’m an every-waking-hour glasses wearer, so i needed something that wasn’t super over the top (although i did almost go with some huge chrome cat eyes), yet i wanted something that was pretty and different, and i fell in love with the little fan detail in the corners, and i color that was indeed a color, and didn’t clash with my hair.

there is nothing more fascinating and wonderful than the first moment you put on glasses with a fresh prescription and see the world as it really appears to those lucky enough to have 20/20, and not have to squint though smudges and scratches.

eek! i’m so happy i could pee my pants!

❤ always,

betty
