I got mine at Sears and the local eyeglass doctors. The black are baby Phat (Sears) and the brown are Candies. If you look on eyeglassses.com they have tons of cool ones.  I didn't order online but I will in the future. So many designers make glasses now.

My next pair of glasses is going to be VINTAGE, baby!  I LOVE that website!  And I'm about ready to need new ones, too, because my daughter seems to think that the ear pieces bend DOWN, not OUT.  The only reason I hadn't gotten vintage frames before now was not being able to find any I liked at the stores around here.  Now I don't have to!

Hey those kinda look like my glasses, 'cept mine are olive green, lime green and brown, but that purple and pink really rocks!  I usually just wear mine from sink to bed, and vice versa.. But this has been the first pair of glasses I don't mind being in public with!

I'm a fan of different eyeglass frames from way back.  Here are two of my sunglass frames...

The top ones with the stars are English frames with prescription lenses.  I don't wear them all the time because some of the stones fall out.  The black ones are my everyday sunglasses.  I wore them when I was driving (a big truck - 18 wheels) and got a kick out of some of the other driver's reactions.

My favorite frame designer is Alan Mickli.  I try to find his frames wherever I buy glasses - independent shops, usually.  The chains don't usually have many different frames, they probably don't sell as many.

I'm off to check out that vintage frame site!

Mine are from sears too, they aren't any special designer though. You can't tell from the pic, but they're purple and black, and have twisty arms.

E-bay, baby! I got my first pair of light blue vintage cat's eye frames for $6 a few years ago, and I just got 4 sets of vintage frames for $25 last year. They're getting more expensive, but it's still cheaper and more creative than just getting them at lenscrafters or somewhere. Get measured for glasses first, so you know if they're going to fit or not, and make sure the plastic is still flexible. Sometimes it hardens as it gets older, and it cracks when they try to put in the frames. I got my prescription filled (w/ UV protection) at Wal Mart for $55. Actually, I think the $55 includes my $6 frames.

I get mine at my optometrist's office. She has a fabulous selection, and my insurance covers it. At first, I felt like Elton John in them, but now I forget I'm wearing them.

The glasses I bought from optical4less.com cost $38 including frames, lenses, and shipping. I got them a couple weeks ago, and they're fantastic! I'll post a picture soon.  There are other places that have similar deals, but they weren't as trendy. I found them by doing a google search for discount eyewear.
