it was time for lula to get new prescription glasses. i really wanted to find her some cat eye style vintage glasses, but knew going that route might be tricky. i searched on etsy and found some really cute ones. the prices ranged depending on the condition they were in.
i found these adorable blue ones at pieces of pastimes. julie was kind enough to send them to me courtesy so we could find out how replacing the lenses in vintage glasses would work.
one of the problems with vintage eye glasses is that the plastic becomes crystallized over time and can easily break. these particular glasses were very bent when we received them, and as i tried to gently bend them back, they quickly snapped and broke! bummer! pair one down!
another problem with vintage prescription glasses is that the plastic part yellows over time too...as you can see in the above picture. there are tips all over online for cleaning that up, but i'm not sure if it actually works or not.
i also ordered another pair of pink glitter cat eye glasses hoping at least one of the pairs would work out. these were in a little better shape. in part two, i'll let you know if they worked out!
