new specs

I don’t care if Gucci put big, thick-rimmed plastic framed glasses on their 2015 Fall ready-to-wear runway show.  I’m OVER IT!  I’m over the ironic bad glasses that must be fashion forward.  I tried them, but they just aren’t flattering!  I’m genuinely surprised the trend has lasted as long as it has.  But for someone like me, a ranting old lady, there is a real lack of glasses that AREN’T of that variety that are available for purchase online or even in store.  When Firmoo offered me a pair of glasses for review, I did scroll a few pages before I found ones that were the closest to what I’ve been pining for – a 1930s frame style.

I’m really pleased with the frames, and it’s refreshing to not have a huge hunk of plastic hanging on my face.

These photos were taken at the International Rose Test Garden in Portland, Oregon – the oldest official, continuously operated public rose test garden in the United States.  My family traipsed the garden the day after my sister’s wedding.

    Those glasses are so cute! I’ve been looking for a similar pair. The lack of variety in eyeglasses is so frustrating. That garden looks absolutely gorgeous!

    Classic, deeply pretty new specks. They’e sophisticated and fun at the same time, and suit your stellar style to a tee.

    Sooo cute! I love the thin rounded frames and they suit you to a t! Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to wear that kind of style, but gosh, they look so elegant!
