Monique 012 - 013
Monique gave the four recent arrivals from England a try and she selected three pairs for use at her photo shoot. Here she is showing the second pair sent by Mike. It could be the twin sister of the blue half rim pair. It's a tempting idea to think that these two pairs were bought by a mother and daughter who both favored the cat eye style. This brownish pair is fitted with bifocal lenses and the reading segments are circle shaped. Very discrete. Even from this vantage point, it's impossible to see the demarcation line. Although definitely not from the classic cat eye era, these glasses are quite reminiscent of what could be seen in the streets during my schooldays. So it was appropriate to add a black and white version of this fine photo.
