My Obsession with Vintage Eyewear

Hello!  This is my first blog post about vintage eyewear.

I have had a crush/obsession with 50s Cat Eyes since I was 12 years old. That is when I got my first pair of Tura Cat Eye Glasses. They were so amazing and ornate. I loved looking at them on me, my dog, and all of my friends (I'll post some pictures of my dog in them later). I had never seen anything so amazing. I felt like a movie star with them on and wanted to wear them everywhere.  Now that I'm all grown up, I have an Etsy Shop full of vintage eyewear. Many of them are the beloved cat eyes. I also have other styles available for men and women including Geek Chic, Brow Line,  Horn Rim, etc. This link will take you to my Etsy Shop Collectable Spectacle

Today I am featuring two pair of vintage cat eye glasses.

 The first pair are French Pin-Up Girl  Style Cat Eyes from the 50s. I love the cut out designs. You can see the layers of color  black, white and clear in the cut out designs. They are just beautiful!  These are really well made and in perfect condition.  You can find them here!

This pair of 50s sunglasses is so great! I love the colors, and the lenses are non prescription so they are ready to wear now! They are in amazing condition for 60 years of age and are so Mad Men!  They can be found here!
