I’m pretty excited about the thought of having some new glasses. I’ve had my wire black frames for about 10 years, and I just really started wearing them recently. I have horrible vision, and usually wear contacts- but I decided to give my eyes a break and wear my glasses. I actually like having them, and Chris and I decided it was long overdue for us to both get a new pair next week. Yay!
We made appts at Williamson Eye Wear Optical Boutique, which is a new place that just opened up in Baton Rouge. I figured I’d go check out the glasses beforehand with my aunt, to get another opinion. I always have a hard time picking out frames, I usually end up with kids glasses b/c my face is very narrow. I want them to be glam with a touch of geek? LOL. I actually found 5 or 6 pairs that I liked! All of the glasses carried at Williamson are designer glasses, so how could I not love most of them? And they had more purple than I thought =)
My favorites are the top right (Docle & Gabbana) & the bottom left (Judith Lieber). The Judith Lieber frames have tiny little amethyst gems around the top of the frames and arms- so sparkly and pretty! I can appreciate a bit of glam in my life =P The Dolce and Gabbana frames are more violet in color, which I really love- and almost $200.00 cheaper. Whoa! Take a closer look:
The Prada frames on the bottom right are awesome, but remind me much of my glasses now with wireframes. The Tory Burch frames on the top left have some really nice silver detailed arms on the side, but I’m not so sure about the mix of brown with the purple:
The place not only has a large selection of eyewear, but it’s so modern and new. They even have a cocktail bar!! And, I’ll take the chandelier, please…
