The family that shades together…

Posted by heather.h on

The family that shades together stays together.  I have been pondering what to write to all you brilliant people out there this week.  Upon doing so I started exploring some pictures of my family in different glasses. Interestingly enough, I started to notice a trend. Then I wondered if all families had little trends like ours? So while we’re exploring my family and our crazy little trends, be thinking of yours…

My family loves wearing Wayfarer style prescription eye glasses. Trendy, bold, and just the right amount of nerdy-ness. We love frames that draw attention to us, mostly big, bright, obnoxious frames. The other picture is my custom prescription Hello Kitty glasses. I got these adorable frames off Etsy and then had our lab make some 10% pink gradient Rx lenses for them. They did a fabulous job! Once again, big, nerdy, and obnoxious! The crazy thing is much of our lives we have not been together, but have ridiculously similar senses of style.

These next couple pictures are of my little brother, Chris. Chris has a laid back more functional kind of style. His prescription eyeglasses, the Wiley X ophthalmic Covert eye Glasses and his sunglasses by Julbo, both safety/ sport type glasses. Very reasonable and functional, however, the Julbo sunglasses have a very unique and odd shape to them. They are built like this because they are made for wearing in the mountains. Round lenses and a thickness to the front of the temple arms for snow/ wind coverage. And his prescription Wiley X eyeglasses he had made with a 15% amber tint for no other reason than to stand out a bit…. Notice a trend yet?

Last but certainly not least my other sister Kathleen and her dog. I am not certain of the brand of either of these glasses, nor do I have an explanation for their particular styling, but they are hilarious and a contribution to my family’s eyewear trend!
