A 1950s optician selecting frames for women

This video is wonderful! It’s from 1955 and features an optician picking the right frame colour and shape to suit the person.

Some of the extra temple details seem to be coming back into fashion (see the recent Givenchy Panther frames) and the cat eye frame shape is EVERYWHERE at the moment. I love it!
