Triangles Everywhere

Everywhere I turn these days I’m seeing triangles and I can’t get enough of this pattern. From the crisp geometric clean lines to the more organic screen printed variety, it’s modern, yet playful. I also love how this pattern can be feminine, masculine or gender neutral depending on the color combination. It’s got something for everyone. Here are some of my favorites…

AFL’s Favorite Frames

Have you seen Rebecca’s kick ass glasses from SEE? They are awesome. I’m long overdue for new glasses myself. For most of my life I had perfect vision but things started changing after college. I held out for a few more years since my vision wasn’t really bad but then I finally got a pair of glasses in 2004. And, I haven’t gotten a new pair since! Now my eyes are getting so much worse. I don’t know if its from having kids or from age but, either way, a new prescription and some hot new frames are what I need right now.  It’s a lot of pressure shopping for new frames when your friend and business partner has the perfect pair, so I’ve been shopping around a lot. I’m having such a hard time picking a pair because, honestly, I just want all of them! Here are some of my favorite styles. Which pair do you think I should get?

Oversized – I love these big & bold frames. I’m fairly petite so I’m not sure I can pull them off. Luckily, Rivet & Sway and Warby Parker let you select 5 of your favorite frames to try on at home! How cool is that?

 

A Feteful Life: Oversized Glasses

  1. Rivet & Sway Disco Diva in Matte Black
  2. Warby Parker Nash in Greystone
  3. Burberry BE2121 in Dark Red

Studious – These are a bit smaller scale and have thicker frames than the ones above. They are simultaneously nerdy & chic.

  2. Jason Wu Elizabeth in Noir
  3. Rivet & Sway Belle in Cookies & Cream

Femme – These feminine cat-eyed inspired glasses have a vintage feel that I love but are just subtle enough that they don’t look too costumy.
