Oh, they’re so purrrrty!

Looks from bygone eras always seem to resurface and then we call it “vintage.” Before the 1940’s eyeglasses were simple and not really considered a fashion accessory. In order to mass produce frames and in keeping up with the industrial era, most lenses were practical, featuring rounded and rimmed in metal. For those who could afford it, finer materials such horn or bone were used yet, their purpose was more functional rather than fashionable. Then something wonderful happened. The war finally ended and a flood of inspiration came pouring out.


Show your love for vintage styles with the Reece Jakob 6042 Black prescription glasses. These gorgeous cat-eye frames feature lenses rimmed in a clear plastic frame. The outer layer is a glossy black which adds a cool dimension in contrast to the clear inner portion of the frame. The winged corners are followed by thin reinforced temple pieces making these specs oh so feminine. Try them on with our virtual mirror today!

Post war fashions for women came bursting off the silver screen. Old Hollywood was at the cutting edge of the fashion forefront and provided the audience with looks to mimic and copy. Women’s fashion in particular became much more interesting. Those round lenses were pushed to the side and the cat-eye was thrown into the limelight for a solid two and a half decades. The contours were oh-so-feminine and gave even the most common woman a touch of glamour. For this week’s Wear-it-Wednesday's featured Frame-a-Day is the vintage inspired Reece Jakob 6042 Black.
