Shuron Ronsir Revelation frames
A couple years ago, after I found out my eye prescription had changed yet again, I was in the market for new eyeglasses. And honestly, I didn't like any of the glasses available at our health care provider's optometry office. I checked out a couple more local eyeglass shops, but I couldn't find anything with a vintage look. So, I turned to the web. Googling works pretty well if you have the right key words, but it took a while to find an online eyeglass seller that had some mid century styled eyeglass frames.
But I can be pretty stubborn when I'm searching, and eventually I discovered Shuron frames. These are similar to the vintage style glasses you've probably seen in some retro movies of late. The father on the Heroes TV series also wore them. I've been wearing my first set of Shuron Ronsir Revelation frames ever since, and when my prescription changed yet again recently, I went back to the same source and got a slightly different frame, the Shuron Ronsir Zyl. Both times I used framesdirect.com, and got good service, although now that I need bifocals (dang I sound old), the price with lenses was - let's just say, not cheap.
I've been happy with both frames, and I've gotten some compliments on the frames for their unique appearance. (It's hard to guess what people say about the frames when I'm not around, but then, I don't care.) To quote fellow blogger Melzaelf over at Vintage Coconut, "Life is too short to blend in with everyone else." I couldn't agree more! Check out her blog post on the stylish frames she found online. And this morning, over at Amber's blog I HEART EVERYTHING, she introduced her friend and new blogging buddy Stephanie, who is sporting a stylish pair of vintage style frames in her photo.

I haven't run across any new version of the womens cat eye glasses, but if I do I'll be sure to let you know. I have to think someone will offer them eventually. I for one would love to see them come back in style. Of course, if they did, then us non-blender-inners would have to find something else to wear!
So is anyone else into wearing vintage eyeglasses?
