When I lost my laptop not long ago, it was in a tote with my favorite readers—the frames of which were not cheap. I needed a replacement, stat—and ideally one that went for a lot less than my lost pair. And these, from Warby Parker, turn out to be the just about perfect replacement, and maybe even more perfect than the ones I lost because they’re a slightly lighter design.
I’m also a big fan of the readers from a company called Caddis. I’d love to think I could pull off these cool wire frames.
I also quite like these Ray Ban Clubmasters.
hey, totally random question – does anyone know which glasses Julie Delpy wears on her Netflix show, I have searched the internet, but cannot find the brand? Could be Givenchy, but not sure?
I had no idea she had a series on Netflix. I see what you mean about her glasses from the images I spotted. Now, I want to know the brand, too. I’m collecting a mental file of possible frames for my eye exam for a new prescription next month. Thank you for mentioning this.
I love my Caddis reader sunglasses but they’re heavy. I don’t really notice it when I’m wearing them but they leave a dent on the bridge of my nose. There’s no good way to add padding, either.
I want to buy those Ray Ban Clubmasters and wear them and pretend I work for NASA and I am celebrating Neil Armstrong walking on the moon!
Looking for fun where I can find it………..
Sorry, but back to the jeans for just a second. I’m currently wearing my Rag and Bone Dre jeans the cut is low-rise slim boyfriend jeans and they are a size smaller than I normally wear and they are cut high in back and lower in front (but not super low). I realized this summer that I’ll probably have to ditch my contacts for actual glasses at my next ophthamologist appt. and they will have to be bifocals. I. Am. So. Effing. Old.
I am trying multifocal contacts. They’re not great!
Are you doing the one eye close one eye far, or both distances in both eyes? (I found that the both/both didn’t work all that well for me for reading or distance, and went back to contacts + readers.)
At first I tried one eye for close and one eye for far, but it wasn’t all that great for the computer or closer, and I hated one eye being blurry for distance, so now I am trying contacts that supposedly have concentric rings of different rx’s in them. I have given it a good go but I can’t read close up all that well with them and sometimes resort to readers. The lenses are too expensive for how mediocre they are, IMO, so I doubt I will repurchase them.
You are So. Not. Alone.
Hint, calling them “progressives” instead of bifocals helps – at least a little bit.
I’ve had tri-focals/progressive lenses since I was 48. I fought them at first and now, 3 years later, it’s all good. And thanks for the jeans update. I ordered a pair in my pre-pandemic size (ie, one size too small) & am hoping they work bc I love the wash & trust the judgment of this crowd.
I picked up my first pair of progressives today. It’s less weird than I feared? The biggest shock was the price, my lord, those lenses were expensive. But they sit on my face all day, everyday, so this was not a place to economize, I reasoned. I will not be buying the Pleats Please dress I had been wanting, or much of anything else, for a while.
If readers would have solved this issue for a fraction of the price I do. It want to know…
Do not want to know. Gaaa. I don’t think it’s the glasses fault, just bad screen typing and autocorrect. Gaaaa.
Gleaming: I did readers for a bit but am so glad I finally threw in the towel and got progressives. I’ve worn glasses for YEARS, though, so the whole having to swap pairs constantly was a major hassle – no more reading and watching television at the same time, etc. My mom had a REALLY hard time getting used to “bifocals” but I was lucky and took to progressives immediately. (They ARE expensive, though, especially when you factor in the cost of thinning down what otherwise would be insanely think lenses — to say my eyesight, left uncorrected, isn’t great, is an understatement! – but worth every penny.)
Hey I have those WP Winstons in corrective vision..
GREAT MINDS STYLE ALIKE
Nice choices! I may need those Warby Parkers.
If you’re new to Caddis, know that all their lenses are tinted, for reasons. The tint is visible on me, but I’m pretty pale.
Totally agree about the Caddis tint. I love the frames, but the tint makes them unwearable. So weird that they insist on it, even for progressive readers (where the whole point is that you’re not just sitting at a screen).
I’ve bought a number of glasses from Zenni as spares and readers to leave next to all my spots(sofa, bed, dining table) . They have a stylish but cheap and light selection. You can also buy the Elton John frames of your dreams to leave next to the bed if that’s your thing.
