Fro' Me to You - 70's Throwback
For Christmas I gave my best friend a little girl's weekend getaway. We have been friends for over twenty years. We go way back...all the way to 2nd grade.
This trip was to Houston for Proverbs 31 ministries Girl's Night Out Conference. Then we spent Friday in Old Town Spring, shopping.
We happened upon a little antique store where we found these fabulous glasses...
Now you can't tell to well from the picture above, so let me show you another....so you get the full effect.
Ok...so look closely. The arms of the glasses (the part that goes over your ears) are chains that you drape over your ears. Hanging from the said chain is this BIG round plastic circle which matches the print of the sunglasses.
I found them absolutely hilarious. I told my best friend I would totally buy a pair, because I think my family would get a kick out of them. I don't think I would have the nerve to actually wear them in public. But, they wanted $45 for these bad boys; and all because they are considered "Vintage". My best friend tried to shake them down to$20; but it was a no go. So we left them right there in Spring, TX.
I was disappointed when I got home and asked my mom and aunt if they remember them from the 70's. They said they had never seen such. So does anyone remember these glasses from the 70's?
Now go join the fun at We are THAT family!
