1930s Sunglasses 2

I have noticed lately that there are quite a lot of repro 30s/40s styled frames popping up in different shops. I recently bought a white framed pair from Dotti of all places. I love the look of 1930s rounded/ovalish sunglasses with celluloid frames and have collected quite a few pairs over the years. The white frames ones are my favourite (seen below worn by Bette Davis – and LOVE her outfit). Glad to see this style coming back as mainstream fashion as I really do detest the  oversized sunglasses that are popular at the moment.




Michelle’s Etsy pics of the week – vintage sunglasses

I love 1930s sunglasses and I have 3 pairs of the acetate round type with various coloured tinted lenses and celluloid frames. They are stylish, classic and great for everyday wear and really do make a vintage ensemble complete. My nana had a white pair (like the ones below) with green lenses that I adored when I was little and I wish I had been able to get hold of and keep them as an adult, but they disappeared when I was a teenager. Anyhoo…I’m always looking for more, so here are range of 30s, 50s and 50s shades that I found on Etsy for sale.
