    1941 - College girl, wearing sunglasses to (presumably) study. The reflection of the book on the lenses makes it hard to tell, but they look pretty round to me. The frames look like wire/metal and not any kind of plastic.
    Oh yea, those caught my eye too, I love the whole look.

    I love these but I don't know a thing about them, maybe one of you know who made them?

    Has anyone found that vintage women's glasses and sunglasses run fairly small?

    Take a look at these!

    TJ Maxx currently has these for $19.99.
    They are black with a greenish lense. Very 1940's!!

    From someone who has worn glasses almost all my life.
    Men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses my eye.

    Cherry, do you know the brand of those? As far as I know there's no TJ Maxx in Ireland, but I'd like to find something like those.

    I like the pair the blue bikini woman has on... but I'd rather have traditional Aviators... One pair mirrored and one pair smokey.

    I have 2 original pairs of 1940s sunglasses, and both are this style with bakelite/plastic frames. One is a tortoiseshell color with black arms, the other was white frames. The white ones were so cute, but they snapped in half about a month ago. A friend of mine found some very similar in style at the dollar store, of all places!

    We also have 2 original pair of the pilot's sunglasses, those were intended for men but were worn by female pilots (WASP or others) from photos I've seen. I'm wearing them in my avatar.

    These are just what I've been looking for. I have a couple of vintage pairs that I don't want to break or ruin. They look like Ralph Lauren glasses. I wonder if all TJ Maxx's are carrying them. Thanks for that tipster!

    (Sorry to revive such an old thread... if I missed a more recent one, feel free to redirect me!)

    Anyway, I really want some white 1930s style sunnies this summer, like these:





    Has anyone seen any cheap knock-offs like these on the high street? (Sunnies are one of those things I don't like to drop a lot of money on!).
