New Glasses

I worked at an optical for a few years in college and loved it... I loved picking and fitting frames that were perfect for the customer and had a wonderful staff to work with.  I still go the optical I used to work at, which is Eclectic Eyewear.  If you're into frames and are in the Austin area, I definitely recommend them.  They have a very friendly staff and a great selection of frames and they also have good optometrists.

For my last visit, I bought a new pair of glasses and I LoVE them!  While working at an optical, I feel in love with two frame companies, ProDesign and Lafont.  I have 3 pairs of ProDesign frames (including my new ones and wear all of them) and 0 Lafonts.  (Lafonts are on the higher end of frames... one of these days I will own a pair.)  Here are my new glasses.

I loved ProDesign so much I even thought about being a sales rep once I graduated... but I don't think I would make a good sales rep.  I would definitely recommend ProDesign frames... their quality is good, look fantastic, and have their own trademark look!  I can pick out a ProDesign frame any day.  :)

Eclectic Eyewear is awesome! I've been getting my glasses there for 10 years. Your frames (esp. the cutouts) are pretty remarkable.

The ProDesigns have jumped out at me at the opticians. Great Scandanavian designing!
