from my heart-shaped view

Monday, December 3, 2012

I fell in love with these heart-shaped glasses a few months ago and I ended up buying matching pairs for my little sister (she's 11) and I. Every time I wear these in public, I get a lot of stares..... and I live in Hollywood! I am far from the craziest thing these people see on a regular!

These glasses make me feel young and old all at the same time. I am probably not the target demographic today, but this is not the first time in history they've become popular. I decided to focus on the retro aspect of these glasses, and wear my leather cigarette pants with this vintage, sequin, polka dot sweater. I felt a little like a 50's teenager, but I like this look way more than a poodle skirt! What do you think of my nod to the 50's and 60's today?
