Bright Eyes and Bright Ideas

20121016-100415.jpgGlasses have come a long way in the 20+ years I have been wearing them. Back in the day it seemed to be an automatic “nerd alert” (never stopped me from rocking them). However, it seems these days glasses are cool. People who don’t even need glasses wear fake ones to put a look together. With the amount of online sites to get affordable prescription glasses it comes as no surprise that those who need them have several different pairs now and can change them depending on the look they are going for. Glasses are no longer two bottle caps bound together by a basic frame, wrapped around your head by a string (you all know you had that as children, some even as adults). Eyewear is now a popular accessory to complete a style, or make a statement. We are seeing styles from all decades making a come back, from styles made popular by John Lennon, Johnny Depp, Clark Kent, Sally Jesse Raphael, and the list goes on. There doesn’t seem to be a specific style that’s in, it just seems all glasses are in. Don’t be afraid to have fun with your speks.
