EYES TO THE SKY

Sep 6, 2012


top: Ray Bans // bottom: Oliver Goldsmith

Before I left for New York, I was so relieved to have finally gotten some new sunglasses. As an Asian, it's really hard to just casually find glasses anywhere. I know some people who don't care, but I personally don't like floating glasses syndrome (no nose contact). I sort of resigned myself to forever wearing wire rim glasses because at least the nose pads are adjustable. Imagine my surprise when David at Leonard Opticians custom fit a pair of glasses for me and now I finally have a pair of cat eyes. I thought the Ray Bans fit fine, but he tweaked those perfectly as well. What a difference going to an actual optician makes rather than some fashion eyewear store. If you're in LA you should check out their new location.

Fashiony things afoot! Stay tuned!

(or watch SVU and eat chips for me)

as an asian, i have to say, WORD. finding a pair of sunglasses that fits is like finding a hidden stash of money. thanks for the LA optician recommendation, been looking for one of those.
