Guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses.

But they should, and I bought some new ones anyway!

They are from Oliver Peoples and I love them.The question most people ask is "Are they real glasses?" and yes, they are prescription lenses!

I love that they don't have any branding on them. I also love how two different optometrists (from the same place) told me that "These are what the movie stars wear, and because they don't have any branding or a logo on them, they wear them because they WANT to". Movie star endorsements aside, they are a really good shape for my face - a little rounder than most wayfarer styles, which don't really suit me. The style is Sheldrake in Storm.

I got mine from Angelo St Optical in South Perth, but you can get purchase them online at their website as well.

Nerds ahoy!

    harbourmaster - I know! People demand to try them on to see if I'm lying! I am not that much of a hipster that I wear plastic lenses!
