Deadstock Glasses

IMG_1921

I've needed glasses since I was in 9th grade. I've worn an assortment of different styles, all quite statement pieces. I have to say though these are the boldest of them all. I love them. L-O-V-E ! I got them at The Rosebowl flea market in Pasadena by an amazing vendor Allyn Scura.

He has a huge inventory of dead stock vintage glasses as well as his own line. I bought two pairs and he worked me a good deal. I can't wait to get the other pair filled with my prescription!! They are gold and FANCY!

The first time I wore them was on our trip to Washington DC. I got quite a few stares. Anyone that has been to the DC area knows what I mean. Everyone sort of looks and dresses the same. Platinum hair and red lipstick are few and FAR between! So what do you guys think of the new spects?

I have a pair I had fitted with my prescription as well. I don't wear them because they don't quite look right on my face yet. Someday...

Love them! They remind me of the ones that Marilyn Monroe had in "How to marry a millionaire"!

I adore your glasses!! They are beautiful! I wear a pair of 1950s, black cat eye glasses every day! I also wear a pair of 1950s cat eye sunglasses. I had both pair fitted with my near-sighted/astigmatism prescription. I am a DC area local (for almost 18 years) and I can totally attest to your claim of people staring! In addition to my glasses, I wear vintage daily and people stare at me like I am alien! Lol! I used to get annoyed by the looks and stares but now I just ignore it! Sometimes I even say hi! Anyway, your glasses are divine! Enjoy them!
