Adict 2 by Face A Face

It’s no secret that I have been addicted to Face A Face eyewear for many years, and today I am talking about a cute cat-eye shape called Adict 2.  The colors from the handmade Parisian collection are exquisite, but the beauty of a Face A Face frame is not the colors that go into it.  It is the way those colors are put together.  Alisha is wearing the Adict 2 in a beautiful black and white design.  When you look closely at the details you see that underneath the apparent chaos of the swirling blacks and whites are parallel lines of a crystal color that run diagonally from the top right to the bottom left of the frame front.  Eyewear...

Choosing Perfect Frames

This post was originally published in the Tulsa World on April 15th, 2014. When choosing plastic frames you always want to start with a proper bridge fit. This means that you want the frame to properly fit the bridge of your nose. The wrong fit will not be comfortable and the frame will not look as good on your face. The second thing is to make sure the top of the frame follows your brow line nicely, and that the shape complements your jaw line and bone structure. In other words you want a frame shape that is flattering to your face shape. This does not mean that some people can only wear certain shapes, but for any person there...
