dressed up like a lady: Vintage frames. Big ones.

Dec 30, 2013

Vintage frames. Big ones.



Like I alluded to a while back, I updated my prescription recently, and got a few new frames. Well, some new frames, and some old frames. These huge ones are vintage.

Does "huge" even cover it? How about "massive"? Whatever, I fucking love them. They may not be everybody's cup of tea, but they sure as shit are mine.

Wanna see some of my oversized-round-glasses-inspiration?

Melanie Griffith in Working Girl (1988).

This 70's Chris Von Wangenheim ad for Dior.

Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman's mild mannered alter ego, Diana Prince (1976).

This 70's shot of Charlotte Rampling, who may or may not have actually worn glasses but looks awesome in these.

Jan Smithers as Bailey on WKRP in Cincinnati (1980).

Sheryl Lee as Maddy Ferguson, Laura Palmer's identical cousin on Twin Peaks (1990).

The mother fuckin' Log Lady. I mean, as long as we're talking about Twin Peaks.

Can't stop staring at that crooked picture...
I got them from Thayereyewear and then had them fitted with my Rx at Replacealens, which outfits frames with your prescription for as cheap as $39. Altogether a pretty affordable affair, which makes it far easier to justify getting some crazy Sally Jesse Raphael frames.

  2. Mirren says my new ones are too big and round for me, but I bet they aren't as big as yours!

  3. you look great. a friend of mine has such big glasses, and we came to conclusion that a person has to have an attitude, and can wear whatever he/she wants, it will look good.

  4. On you, they really don't look that crazy though. Totally blend with your style. Love 'em!

  5. The first thing it made me think of was Sally Jessy Raphael, because my first pair of glasses was a purple version of hers; it didn't work on my face because I don't have as defined of facial features as you do.

    What I can't stop staring at is Melanie Griffith's crooked glasses; they are completely twisted at the bridge. One lens slants towards her cheek, and the other is parallel.
