My gorgeous friend, Rebecca, recently bought some new glasses.
She found the frames in what we Antipodeans call an op shop - you probably know them better as thrift stores. They were originally a pair of sunglasses with odd mirrored lenses. She had her optometrist fit them with Transitions lenses - the ones that turn into sunglasses when exposed to UV light.
I've always thought that Transitions lenses were kind of dorky, but I'm starting to think that this is because they were in the wrong frames. That weird in-between-sunglasses-and-clear-lenses stage wouldn't be weird at all with frames as large as these.
