you look adorable in glasses Irene.
Are these the ones that you got?

Reen said...

Thanks Susan. My last pair was years ago and huge frames. Not the style anymore! weirdness for small! Yes, I got these. I ended up trying on dozens of pairs, but kept coming back to these small, dark frames. They are by Elizabeth Arden and just for reading and close up stuff.
