Vintage Peepers

My happiest purchases of eyeglasses were vintage and ever since then I'm always on the look out for the next unique pair. Particularly, I've been on the hunt for the just right shade of pink plastic glasses - like the shade of strawberry Nesquik.

It just dawned on me to check Etsy and of course there are a lot of stunners. None of the pink ones struck me, but here are a few of my favorites. XO

With face framing fringe and oversized baubles, these say summer to me.

Lots of fun, but their shape is a little more serious than the first.

As eyeglasses they look scientifically sexy!

Dramatic black, an interesting round shape (a little reminiscent of bamboo) and rhinestones.

  1. Love this post. I'm a huge fan of vintage frames. In fact, I have been wearing those Christian Dior frames all summer. Mine have white accents instead of orange. Picked them up at the Pasadena Rose Bowl flea market back in May.
