I have been wearing prescription glasses since I was about 50 years old. Many of my family and friends wear light rimless frames – the ones that look almost as if you are not wearing glasses at all.
I never wanted to go that way. I love big frames. I have had several over the years. I don’t mind people knowing I wear glasses. I see them as a wonderful accessory. Long gone are the days of ‘boys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses.’
I really like frames by Swedish designer Efva Attling.
She does new ranges every year, and I have my eyes on these from 2023
And I am also loving the glasses frames from And Just Like That, Season 2. They are large and in charge.
I have my eyes checked for new glasses every 18 months or so (I should go more often but it costs so much).Part of me is always excited for new frames but the other part hates trying to make a choice. I usually go in a week or so before the appointment to browse without any pressure.
