As you know (or maybe are just finding out), I wear glasses and I have since I was in Grade 4. I like wearing glasses because I think they suit me and it’s exciting that glasses today come in cool vintage styles which go perfect with my look.
It is because of being a glasses wearing gal that I wanted to do today’s ‘Vintage Photo Tuesday‘ post on “Young Women with Eyeglasses”. To simply showoff the beauty of wearing glasses (and not holding them like our lady friend in the image below).
Lets begin the eyeglasses parade!
The beautiful woman below reminds me so much of Jessica from Chronically Vintage! Those who know Jessica, don’t you agree?
