Along with ogling pastry shops on every street corner in Paris. I am drawn to optical shops.They're almost every other street corner. This charmer, Optique des Vosges is in the Marais, 12-14 rue Saint-Antoine, 75004, just a spit from Place du Vosges.
I don't know what I'll do when the coke bottle frames go out of style. I'm addicted. It's the only way people are sure to find me, by my scarlet red goggles.
I found my frames by chance in Urban Outfitters for next to nothing. A village optical shop replaced the lenses.
The French are lucky to have their National Health pay for their fancypants lunettes/glasses.
Is why you can't go two steps without tripping on a lunette shop.
Transparent is IN, though I haven't seen them at Urban Outfitters.
I call these glasses 'Jagged Little Pill' like Alanis Morissette's song. Don't ask me why.
A very eccentric design for an artiste no doubt, though not this artiste. I would lose them in an instant. One thing about big coke bottle glasses - they're easy to spot when you leave them around.
