Cat eye tortoise shell frames (Jean LaFont – Paris/ courtesy of Advanced Eye Care) | Fuchsia lips (Revlon)
You might remember that back in the summer I was on the hunt for new frames. I'd had my old frames for years, so I really wanted to update my look. Since my best friend, Alexia, owner and optometrist at Advanced Eye Care in Homewood, Alabama, was coming to visit for the Beyonce concert, I asked her to pick out several frames and bring them with her. Alexia has always done a great job helping me pick out not only stylish frames, but also the right frames for my face, so I trusted that she would pick out some great frames for me to try on.
As you can see, she did not disappoint! Alexia brought me so many great frames to choose from that I couldn't pick just one! I took the options to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to ask for everyone's help with picking out a pair of frames, but there was no clear favorite. There were about two or three though that did receive the most votes, so I knew that I had to pick two pairs of frames.
These tortoise shell frames were a clear favorite of my followers and friends. As soon as I tried them on I knew I couldn't let these go. Tortoise shell is such a classic look that never goes out of style and the cat eye is perfect for creating my new geek chic look.
Many thanks to Dr. Alexia Vaughn and Advanced Eye Care for my new tortoise shell frames! If you live in the Birmingham area, be sure to visit Advanced Eye Care for your eye care needs and for the latest and most stylish frames. Be sure to check back for a look at the second pair of frames!
