...and the results are... they worked! the eye specialist was a bit skeptical about replacing the lenses in the pink vintage eyeglasses. so we ordered a new pair along with the vintage ones just in case. here are lula's new glasses that she wears most of the time. she really liked the pink polka dots on the inside of the frames.
it's really hard to find cute kids eyeglasses (unless you look in france!). most kids don't wear glasses, and many parents aren't willing to spend a lot on "cool" glasses. so there isn't much of a market for kids glasses. however, sometimes your vision clinic can show you other options they have available that aren't on the floor. that's how we found these. just ask and you might be able to find something you like better.
and for the vintage ones? they were able to put lula's prescription lenses in these and they held together! (i know...there's a lot of pics here. but she's just so stinkin' cute!)
