Stuck for what to wear when getting dressed for the office in the morning? Imagine yourself 50 years ago, what neat little ensemble would you pick out? Recreate that, add some colour and a dash of leather with a Goldie skirt, some secretary specs and you’re good to go! That’s what I did yesterday morning anyway, all inspired by these fun cat eye Retro54 frames which really must be worn with a wink, lippy and your tongue in your cheek!
They were the first frames I picked out out of a big pile of potential face adornments as they were just the sort of style I fancied playing with, Mad men here I come! They’re perfect for a bit of dress up, but I can’t see myself wearing them every day. They require the confidence and nonchalant attitude of a Joan Holloway, plus they’re just not quite as comfy as my daily frames which have moulded around my nose and ears or my face, like an old tree, has grown around them.
I’ll be keeping these tortoiseshell beauties in my pen pot none the less tho, you never know when you might need to unleach your inner sixties typist extraordinaire! (note to self: must watch Populaire…)
