Miss Four Eyes

After I took the pictures for yesterday's lookbook I decided I wanted to wear my glasses so then I had J come back out and take pictures of me in my glasses. He's so good to me and my picture taking demands :)

I just got these Chanel eyeglasses and I adore the shape. I don't actually need glasses, I just like the look and Chanel makes some really great frames. I do have a very slight prescription in them, I have great eyesight except at night when things kinda get blurry so I wear these when I drive at night but actually I like to wear them more for the look than the function.

Here's the side view, you can kinda see the signature Chanel camellia and there's a little CC in the middle. I couldn't find my exact ones but they are similar to these except the frames are bigger. I got mine at Lenscrafters which is one of the very few places that carry Chanel around here. They have a great selection though so if you are looking for Chanel eyeglasses, I'd recommend checking them out.

Update: A big thank you to Kim as she found the style number! They are the Chanel 3130.

I'm all about the accessories and eyeglasses definitely makes my list! But speaking of glasses, I'm looking forward to the sun aren't you? Here's some sunglasses I have my eyes on...

I'm still all about the thick plastic frames and I love the square-ish shape.

Tom Ford makes the best sunglasses. The designs are always so unique and modern.

This year's trend is the plastic colored aviators and I think I will be jumping on that trend with these cute pink ones.
MICHAEL Michael Kors "Medina" Aviator Sunglasses

But you can't go wrong with just the classic aviators. I love the different colored lenses that this style comes in.

I love the shape of these and the arms.
DIANE von FURSTENBERG Glam Sunglasses with Drop Temple Design

I have loved these Tom Fords for awhile now, I just love the design. The price though? A bit steep...
Tom Ford "Anais" Sunglasses $425

So I found these that are a great mid-range price
Bebe Lauren Round Sunglasses$79

and if you don't even want to invest that much, how about these for under $6!

  1. those glasses do look amazing on you!

    as for sunglasses - forever have i been buying cheap cheap, but my fiance and I came to the consensus is that - yeah cheap is great. but we keep finding our sunglasses broken all the time. So we're on a mission to find classic sunglasses that'll work for us. He's found a pair that looks great on him, I'm still looking! aviators don't quite work on me =(

  2. I love the round/squarish shape of some of these. I bought a pair of tortoise shell like that from Pac Sun, but ultimately I love my RayBan aviators. And I love to steel my boyfriend's wayfarers.

  3. Love your glasses! I had Lasik a long time ago, but just bought a air of cheapie faux glasses to wear for fun! I couldn't justify faux glasses and real Chanel prices to hubs tho. :)
    I've been looking for new sunnies forever. Love your choices!

  5. Aww, they look very cute! I really need to go get my eyes checked. My boyfriend has the worst eyes ever (wears contacts) and lately we will be driving and he can see road signs about 10 seconds before eye can. I am probably going to just go in for a check-up and then buy about 50 pairs of cheap glasses from zenni.com.

  6. Aww, cute! Love the frames. I was "forced" to wear glasses for 2 weeks before getting lasik last month. Unfortunately they had not been updated since 8th grade and I got laughs everywhere I went!

  8. so so so cute! I often wish I wore glasses just to switch up my look every now and then. Which is probably why I love sunglasses so much ...and the sun, of course ;) I do have a pair of fakes ...but they're not as cute as these!!! Happy Friday!

  15. You look great with glasses. I used to wear glasses and I felt I looked too secretary-ish, so I ditched them. This was when I was 15, hahaha.

    Thanks for those sunglasses links, I need to buy some new ones!

  25. Ooh i LOVE these! I've had my pair of Chanel frames for 4 years now, and I've been looking for a new pair, but can't find one I love as much. I have a super wide face so it's hard for me to find frames. May have to check these out!!

  26. Hi I was wondering where did you get the Chanel 3130? I can't find it in any Lenscrafters or Nordstroms :(.

    I have a round face so I kind of want to try them on before getting them (i heard round faces should wear more rectangular frames but these ones look great on you!)

  27. Lena - I got them at Lenscrafters but they might be out of season already! Maybe try some online places that have good return policies or maybe you can see if Lenscrafters can order them for you?
