The Wonder of Vintage Eye Wear

A friend of mine just sent me a link to this lovely video about 1950's glasses fashion. As a long-time wearer of big, plastic vintage frames, I love them for the same reason I love classic cars. The designs were big, bold, startling, provocative and shiny, marrying overindulgent decoration with sleek style.

I only wish that I had each and every one of these pairs of frames! Looking for your own vintage eyewear? Check out Ebay's vintage eyewear section, where you can still find a deal on some things, or if you're in the NYC area, a local favorite, Fabulous Fanny's.
