Stylin Specs

Unfortunately, the range of frames available in Ireland is quite poor. I have recently been exploring different options in order to get my hands on some nice frames. Ive had the same glasses for quite some time, and as they were only ever supposed to be a replacement pair after my other ones got wrecked in a rather unpleasant mugging in Barcelona a couple of years ago, im not a huge fan of them. A friend of mine gets his amazing 50's frames from ebay.




From ebay.com

However, we are mid-recession so i decided to go for an even cheaper option, the bottom drawer in the kitchen. Just to clarify, this is where my mam keeps her stash of retro glasses and amongst them i found these. They are quite Harry Potter-esque but i love them.


My mam's old glasses.

Here she is wearing them back in the day.

Your eye mended itself. That is amazing! I also have a lazy eye and as much as i love glasses, i would love to be able to see out of my left eye-no more eyeliner mess.

nice frames are truly difficult to find in Ireland. Optica off Grafton St has a brilliant range of brands but they're super pricey.
