Definitely the Glasses, part 1

You'll of course remember the last journal entry I posted, a watercolor sketch of a girl in glasses.

Well, I have to confess--I have a fetish with those glasses. I've been trying to save people the discomfort of seeing me in my own ridiculous lensless frames, but if ever I find a legitimate pair of nonprescription glasses, you'll be seeing me in them, rest assured!

I now have a running collection of images and media featuring this "accessory," if you will, and I will be sharing them with you in phases as they come.

I can't trace this eclectic collection back to its original source, but I found it through this blog: http://gatherlove.tumblr.com/post/17220690837/giu-cy-oldschool-babe

Gap Model: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=76889&vid=1&pid=871057
The most remarkable thing about this picture, is that the model (I think) looks exactly like me! How many pictures of strangers make you double take, thinking "is that me??"

Love the lace and boots in this outfit from Bonlook: http://lookbook.nu/look/2163117-On-the-Rooftop

Finally, for today, is this instagram from Sucre Diaries! http://sucrediaries.blogspot.com/2012/02/sucres-first-show.html
Sucre is the music child of Stacy King of Eisley, her husband Darren King of MuteMath, and Jeremy Larson an independent musician and producer. This photo was taken of her with a fan (wearing the glasses!) at their very first live show in LA.

Let me know if you happen to have favorite images of clear lens glasses.
