Some of Ellen's Eyeglass Collection
For me, eyeglass frames are a fashion accessory. Of course, I do need my glasses so I can see properly. Since this blog is all about my hobbies, travels and ME, ME, ME, I thought I'd inventory my eyeglass frames. Yeah, it's a slow blog day.

All of the frames pictured above were purchased at various L.A. Eyeworks' sales within the past 5 or 6 years. I do wear other glasses from other shops too.

I go through eyeglass phases. For awhile, I was only wearing my red glasses (lower right). I would switch off with my green glasses (upper right) for variety. Depending on what I'm wearing, I'll switch off to my basic black glasses or my flashy pink/red combo. I'm waiting for the orange/camel combo from L.A. Eyeworks to be on sale. Right now, I've been wearing my tortoise shell glasses, almost exclusively, except for special fashion occasions.

Larry and I missed the L.A. Eyeworks sale this past season. I suppose that's a good thing. I really don't NEED any new glasses, but I do want some! What's your favorite fashion accessory?

My favorite fashion accessory? I have a favorite necklace that may have been seen at the WeHo SNB. It is a 1641 French coin with Louis XIV on the head side. I like the back side with the shield containing several Fleur de Lys, much better so that is the side that is framed to wear.

I LOVE your glasses. They so suit you - whatever colour you pick is always perfect.

I've been rocking the wide elastic hair band due to a 2007 haircut disaster that is growing out so s-l-o-w-l-y. I've forgotten to wear earrings for the last (how old are my kids?...) couple of years. In my youth I had 7 pairs of cowboy boots, one could never go wrong with that. Soon it will be summer and maybe I can find some zories. That's what my mom calls flip flops.

I wear 2 green stone rings from Chinatown, one on each hand. I think that's about it. I'm experimenting with no watch as every device (cell, iPaq, computer, telephone, microwave, stove, VCR, DVD) has a clock in it these days.

Love your blog!

You just look great in all those frames. I think my faves are the cats, though, 'cause I do love some cats.

My fave accessory? The kerchief. Though my mother only wore them on bad hair days and my grandmother referred to them as "head rags," I find them very '70s and irresistible!

Your eyeglass collection is fantastic. I alternate between three different pairs (plus a pair of cheapy reading glasses) and this post definitely confirmed my need for more, more, more!

Glasses and shoes. Love me some shoes. And sparkly things. All things sparkly. Outer adornment for the inner magpie.

Wow - I've seen a couple pairs I think, but I had no idea! What a fab collection. You and Mary-Heather should compare notes!

You do have the best eye for glasses! (tee he) I love all your colored frames and that sale is great, makes me want to wear glasses.
My favorite since childhood is shoes and today I am wearing a cute pair of red patton flats I got for 80% off at DSW.Woo hoo
I also love collecting jewelry but often I end up wearing the same pieces unless I am going on some fancy outing.

You're famous for your eyeglasses!

Fave accessory has to be retro costume jewelry. Esp. sparkly brooches. I love me a rhinestone brooch.

Shoes and earrings. Earrings take up very little storage space, so I can have many many pairs!

Have you considered also using pinhole glasses?
