I thought I had found my ideal "vintage" glasses.
They are not a cat's eye but slightly more rounded, and in repose they have a deeper frame than a 1950's style: the seller described them as "40's" style. The frame is a green "tortoise-shell".
Oh lovely, Roo - take a photo by the washing!
But my daughter says I look like Harry Potter.
And FL says "This is a joke isn't it? I mean - you're not going to wear them are you?"
So, dear readers, I am throwing it over to you : there's a poll over there in the side-bar, and you have a week to vote anonymously. I won't be offended if you all side with FL and my daughter!
I haven't had my own lenses put in yet, so I can easily re-sell them on eeebaaay if it comes to it.
And if you are all laughing at me (like FL!) at least I have brought a little fun to your day!
