Vintage glasses (repost)

Today I stumbled upon a very nice Etsy profile which dealed in vintage glasses and sewing patterns. She had an awesome selection of glasses and sunnies that were sold for a mere 10$. (much cheaper than in store)


Here i'll do a quick write up on my knowledge of glasses during the early days.

Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol and around 80% of the 60's youths favourite style. The vintage Ray Ban's.
The darker Ray Bans with plastic frames were very popular in the jazz scene in NY around the 50's. All the jazzers performed in pitch black specks, and still do up to this day!

A Lana Turner pick. These sharp, high edged glasses were sure to set a fashion statement.
to be really smart, a girl was required to have not only the type to suit her face shape and colour, she had to have a pair for each activity that she were to do.
