Color Me Framed

28 March 2009 at 3:29 pm 1 comment

Yesterday my friend Audrey and I went hunting for the perfect new pair of frames for my Mom, being sure to have lots of fashion fun along the way! Obviously, all three of us wear glasses, and none of us regrets not choosing contacts for our daily eye-wear. Glasses have never been an embarrassment or hindrance to me: I have always seen them as an added opportunity to accessorize and add color, flair, character, you name it, to an outfit. They define your face, and if the right ones are carefully chosen, will epitomize your style in one small piece of plastic! It’s genius! I could go on about the pros of a fabulous frame and link all sorts of articles, blog posts, and fredflare finds, but instead have decided to post our trials and triumphs of a good frame hunt:

 

 

While Audrey and I were just goofing around/styling each other, my mom was seriously shopping for a new pair of glasses. With advice from us two, not to mention all the ladies at our hair salon, she settled on these,

A light plum half-rim with awesome mother of pearl studded sides.

 

Furthermore, may I remind you that frames are also ideal for dress up and makebelieve.
