Frame Game

I’ve made quite the spectacle of myself with my latest fashion obsession (wait for it…). I’m talking about my fave staple piece, glasses (boom!), and recently I’ve been getting a lot of questions from my followers about where I get all of them. I didn’t realize until I went through my Instagram lately… and I tend to be obsessed with frames. Nerdy is in, kids, and if that’s wrong then I don’t wanna be right!

When it comes to choosing frames, I take three factors into account: the shape, the colour and the texture. This seems pretty straight forward, but since as a piece they tend to be the focal point of your look (seems fair since they’re literally in the middle of your face), it’s important to know which frames work for your face shape, and which colours complement your complexion and eye colour.

I’m a big fan of the wayfarer shape, but I’ve been known to dabble with more round shapes (channelling my inner Penny Lane) or even cat-eye shaped frames. When it comes to colours, I love a marbled tortoise look, but I’m not afraid of a solid black or even coloured frame.

The options are endless, and the world is your four-eyed oyster. Try some out for yourself– with school starting again, you’ll fit the part and look bad-a** doing it.

With that said, eye’ll leave you with a little joke:

What do you call a one-eyed dinosaur?

    Kaitlyn, you and Shawn truly make even this grandma-to-be laugh out loud at your snapchats. The new leather jacket, along with Shawn’s “taunting”, is just hilarious. Love you guys. (Also known as WinBoRay)

    Thanks for sharing an affordable, unique place to buy glasses! I am obsessed with my multiple prescription sunglasses and am dreading the day I need a new script!

    Congrats to you and Shawn! I got my boyfriend hooked on The Bachelor franchise, and its our guilty pleasure in the midst of busy grad student life. We were both rooting for you and Shawn! When he took out his family pictures, we knew he had it in the bag!

    PS- I’m anxiously awaiting candles I ordered from Vancouver Candle Co. Nick, the artisan, was great answering my questions. I couldn’t decide, so I ended up with four!

    I only accidentally caught the premiere of your season, and was hooked from the first episode! You are so hilarious and not afraid to bend the rules. I really admire you, and admire what you have done with your bachelorette experience and oh my god you and Shawn are so cute. I really hope everything turns out for the best for you two. And I love how you stood up and held yourself together through all the hatred you received online. Kaitlyn, you have done a fantastic job.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I think this is great advice for people that are looking for the right fit when it comes to glasses. Even for people that do not wear prescription glasses, they can use your advice when buying sunglasses. You rock every single pair you own! Again, so happy for you and Shawn! I wish y’all nothing but the best.
