Working Girl Wardrobe: Glasses

Dorothy Parker once said, "Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses." While I might not agree with this statement (you're talking to a girl who has been called 'four eyes' since the fifth grade), I do think glasses make a Working Girl look all the more professional. 

Take these classic tortoiseshell glasses for instance. These little suckers are the glasses that grace my face day in and day out. Do I think they make me look more like a pro than a schmo? I have to admit, when I'm wearing a pencil skirt and a cute top, these can make me feel like I could woo any client.


These playful and colorful glasses are all sunshine and lollipops. Sure to brighten any boardroom. 

Ferragamo. Prada. Versace. Designer glasses are like the little black dress of eye wear. And these Bulgari rimless frames spell out sexy secretary to me. 


Blast from the past eye wear can also spice up a boring black suit. And they're cheap to boot. Buy these throwbacks to the '50's from RetroPlanet.com for $5.99. The price tag might make you even consider to order these without even needing them to read your notes from your latest meeting. 

And with the right eye wear, a Working Girl might not get Working Boys to make passes but I'm sure they could get Working Men to make moves.

I would have to pick the top ones if I had to choose between the ones you highlighted. Yellow and bright colors like that one my eyes would not work. But are super cute. I need to wear my glasses more.

That reminds me - I should get the lenses fixed in my glasses lol

Lauren said...

I have glasses just like the top ones and I Love them. Might I say--I think Dorothy Parker was wrong. Glasses can look dead sexy in my book.

I do not need to wear glasses but I really dig them and am thinking about investing in a good pair of non-prescription ones. Also I think your layout is kick-ass.

I like the first pair of glasses. I am due to get another set soon and I would love to have a pair like those.

just in the same way that one's hair color can supposedly change the way in which they interact with men, i feel that the same applies to glasses. i've even been known to wear mine around my apartment to feel sexy (despite the fact that i've yet to fill their prescription).

I love all of them! The yellow pair is my fave though. :-)

Dana said...

I love designer glasses... I have a pair of DG and a pair of guccis....

Katelin said...

I just got the coolest pair of black Ray Ban glasses last week. When I was trying on all the frames, I wanted to get something funky like the designer ones with the fun stripes or the yellow ones, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. So, I opted for the plain black ones, but I think they are trendy enough to still be cute and stand out without making too much of a statement, even if I sold out on getting the cooler frames.

And, my boyfriend thinks I look uber sexy with them on. I can't help but get a little extra pep in my step when I'm wearing them around the office.

I love wearing glasses. I wear them all the time. I just started wearing glasses about a year. I now have 4 differet pair. I feel aked without them like a part of my body is missing. The best part is my boyfriend thinks i looker sexier in my glasses. I don't even take them off whe we make love ad its never been better.
