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 you get the full effect. 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!


  1. Never saw them........however I was a child in the 70's.

    BUT, I love the fact that you took pictures wearing the sunglasses, and then put them back and didn't purchase them! LOVE IT!

    And now I want to give all my friends (who are turning 40 this year) girls trips. Do you think my husband will go for watching all 4 kids 3 weekends a month until 2011? neither. Oh well, it's the thought!

  2. Those are so cute. My daughter would love them.

    A bit flashy for me :D

  3. I'm going to bet that Elton John has worn a pair of those - I love them!

  4. Looks like y'all had a great time together - I just love doing stuff like that, too!

  5. I'm more a child of the 80's, but I do remember seeing something like that. The dangling "earrings". How cute. :)


Thanks for taking the time to show me some love!
