I absolutely love the myriad of affordable eyewear websites that have sprouted up online in recent years. From Warby Parker and their get-one-give-one policy, to Eyebob's ridiculously extensive collection of fun frames, to BonLook's made in the USA designs, there are so many options available these days for under $100. This year has been so much about personal change, and personal appearance (note the hair!) and style have not been left out! I decided it was time for some new frames.
I loved F.E. Castleberry's tortoise shell frames and was thrilled to see they were from Lookmatic (read: under $100). So I searched the site and came away with these two pairs:
I really wanted to get something a little different. I usually don't like clear frames, but these Hobbs frames had just enough old-school charm to them and still incorporated tortoise shell (my forever classic). Plus, confession, I have a large head (thanks dad). So these were a great fit.
I also loved the Unabashedly Prep's FDR choice, but have been searching high and low for a pair of black frames for ages. I think these are just the ticket for a pair of classic, thick, nerdish black glasses, but without verging too much towards the ubiquitous Ray-Ban wayfarers or hipster rims seen all over (especially Toronto).
What do you think? What's your go-to source for eyewear these days?
