Eye Bobs


A few of you commented on my glasses in the picture from the previous post. I don't think that I have ever talked about my favorite eyeglass makers. EyeBobs are actually made as readers but you can take them to any optometrist and have them put in your prescription lens. They are handmade by a fun indie company whose catchphrase is "eyebobs specializes in eyewear for the irreverent and slightly jaded." (This is totally not a paid ad BTW, just me talking about a company I like).

I've been thinking about buying a new set of frames in black. They of course have lots of round frames to choose from but I think that they make my face look even rounder. The ones above have an interesting shape similar to my tortoise shell ones I think. They are called Cool Whip and they say that they give you an instant face lift. This might be a bit much too expect from your frames but I do like them.

If you are looking for wild color combinations they have that too. My friend Leslie, who introduced me to them rocks a red pair. I like this pair called zippy in watermelon too but I think it might be a bit much for day to day.

Speaking of day to day. I'm at work today after a few more days off of because of more snow and doctor visits. I find out on Friday if I can put partial weight on my ankle which will allow me to drive myself and get more of my life back I hope.

I love those Paige. I think I need to hop over there and check them out since I'm due for a new pair of specs.

Those are great!! For everyday glasses I wear http://www.silhouette.com. They have rimless frames and a superlight weight because they are made out of titanium. Since I've worn glasses for more than 40 years (it isn't polite to do the math), these have been fantastic for me. Unfortunately, I have expensive taste and always pick out one out of the top 10% of the price range. My husband says that they are part of my fashion...so lucky me...

Thanks for sharing this info, Paige!
I checked out their site and gladly noted that they do ship internationally. Yay!
