green frames were NOT working for us
On Friday night Larry and I zoomed over to L.A. Eyeworks for their eyeglass frame sale. We met up with Natalie and Joe. We had a grand time trying on frames. Everyone in the place turns into your best friend and offers their opinion on the coolest looking frames for you. We ran into a few other four-eyed friends. It's always a fun event.

Larry's New Frames

Larry and I both bought three pairs. We each bought the round, black Harry-Potterish frames. We left Natalie and Joe at the shop...they were still deciding.

Natalie and Joe look like movie stars!

Hi Jan,

Yes, L.A. Eyeworks gives you a 10% discount of having your glasses made if you order them within a week of purchasing the frames.
I have an optician that is far less expensive than L.A. Eyeworks, even with their discount. I go to Westside Optical on Fairfax, south of 3rd St. It's a funky little shop next door to a pizza shop or a bagel place. They do excellent work and charge far less than any other place I've used.

I'll definitely have to keep your info on hand for the cheaper lenses. I'll bet the red & mother of pearl? frames look fab on you, the other two are funky and fab too.

I love all of your frames, Ellen. I wish I lived closer to L.A. The shop looks fantastic!

Ellen....I love, love, love your new frames. Wish I lived close enough to splurge. I love to change glasses with my moods, however, too expensive. Maybe I'll take a trip to LA and go crazy. It's only money, right?

That looks like the best event a 4eyes could ever ask for. If I lived within driving distance I'd SO be there.
Love all your new specs, have fun with them.

Joe got the Bob Evans that he is wearing in the picture. I was more utilitarian this year, I mean how many blue pairs can you have?
