Just as I was blogging on and on about cat eye shaped glasses and sunglasses the most wonderful thing happened. Dickson from Face a Face came in and showed me the most amazing pair of guess what, cat eye glasses. The Ivory is a new frame and it is beautiful. Available in classic finishes as well as burgundy and a bright aqua this cat eye gets mod by increasing the size and incorporating a rolled metal hinge. The rolled metal gives a nice contrasting pop to the various colors as well as an edgy twist to the frame.
With each new frame I think to myself I can love no other pair of glasses greater than this, and then I find myself counting the days. This time until my Ivory in color 513, burgundy with almost retro looking white rolled metal hinges, arrives. I guess it’s true what the say, love is infinite………..
What you focus on expands…
All this talk of cat-eye sunglasses and I log in to online news and see a link to this pic of Scarlet Johansson rocking some awesome cat eye sunglasses. Her outfit appears to be vintage so the glasses may be as well. However there are a number of current eyewear designers revisiting the cat eye look if you want to recreate this.

Today’s frame pick is the Silverlake by LA Eyeworks. This gorgeous frame is big and bold and oh so yummy. Available in 6 colors all with a cork like pattern embellished on their surface, you can choose from brown, blue, red, green, violet or for those lovers of light colored eyewear- tan. measuring in at 51-20 it is a nice size for most ladies.
So why do we love it? First of, it’s beautiful- this is always top criteria. But we love it even more because it appears to be a bold, chunky substantial frame, yet is crafted out of titanium. What does this mean to the wearer. Comfort! Pure, lightweight, unencumbered comfort which is not an easy characteristic to come by in the world of “statement glasses”.
