Well, so said Dorothy Parker, but they didn't have Prism or Oliver Peoples in those days, did they?
Does anything other than this style of glasses just look horribly dated now? I think maybe. But I'm a bit scared to make the jump! I think top left are Prism glasses (click to enlarge). They are gorgeous, but maybe a hipster hop too far. Oliver Peoples, on the other hand, are slightly more classic but up to date. Glasses by Adam has a good selection, and lets you try a few pairs, and you send back the ones you reject. I like the Emerson style. And it is two years since my last eye test...
