06 Mar Spec-tacular frames: Zebras are unique
This is second in a series, displaying the lovely, distinct, and well-made readers, from readers.com. I chose this pair, the zebra, called, The Dolly, for several reasons. First, again, I wanted a print and liked the shape. Again, the glasses are a part of the Make a Statement Collection, and also display the diversity of the frames. They too, have a cat-eye shape but more subtle. They are great to pair with nearly most outfits, but I wanted to do a bold color of the deep red with black, to show the black and white glasses. You could do a totally monochrome outfit which would also bring the glasses to the fore front. In addition, what else do we know about zebras? Black and white:check. Stripes: check. Look like horses, check. How about they are very rare animals?
I will go into this in a later post but the zebra is a “mascot” for my condition of Ehler’s Danlos. Another perfect reason for me to try these on. They say, ” Look, I am rare, I am unique, and I love these frames!” Made with the same sturdy construction, the zebra print can go from elegant, to trendy or bold. These are two of the selections I picked, stay tuned for next week, when I style two more pairs from readers.com.
My outfit was chosen again, as my love for my vintage touch of black lace detailing, and my favorite deep red color. Not every red looks good on pale skin. I tend to stay away from the orange-ish. The necklace was also vintage or antique looking, and my skirt was a boucle material. My shoes, yea for a small heel, were Sofft, and they were, literally! So, in choosing frames for readers, one can branch out and get something new, fresh, and not just the rectangular readers we see our dad’s wear. Be unique. Zebra Print glasses available here
