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.
