don't break my heart, and i won't break your heart-shaped glasses

I love heart-shaped glasses - they are equal parts little girl cute and grown-up gal fun. As a 1936 magazine said, these "odd-shaped eyeglasses express personality" - and indeed they do. Heart-shaped frames are not for the faint of heart, or the shy of attention. They are attention-grabbers, head-turners, traffic-stoppers and need to be rocked by people who can handle the accompanying sassiness. Made famous by a little film called Lolita, heart-shaped glasses have stayed a great fashion accessory for the last forty years. 

The fad of heart shaped glasses goes back to 1936 

The film that started it all - Stanley Kubrick's Lolita is synonymous with little Lolita's heart-shaped frames

Celebs like Drew Barrymore, Lady Gaga, Kelly Osbourne, Avril Lavigne, Lily Cole, and Nicole Richie all rock the look

Evan Rachel Wood - and her penchant for wearing Lolita-esque frames - served as the inspiration for the Marilyn Manson song "Heart Shaped Glasses"

Katy Perry rocks out on stage in her bright red shades

I love Marianne Faithfull's wire rimmed sunnies - definitely more hippie than Lolita

Mischa Barton strikes a pose in her heart glasses

heart-shaped sunglasses are so cute and whimsical! Styled right, I think they can definitely work. I wish they would make a proper comeback!

Cute post! We're big fans of the vintage heart shapes as well. Collectors of many sunnies. Somehow never seen the wire-rims seen on Barry Miles' Hippie chick, totally adorable. Heading to the Optical shop to get my vintage heart shapes turned into "real" glasses asap. Been on my list of things to do!

I think Evan Rachel Wood wearing the heart shaped glasses was particularly poignant because at that time she was also busy stealing Marilyn Manson away from Dita Von Teese. Von Teese looked like the prim, stoic jaded and heartbroken aging vixon and Wood came off as the mischievous Lolita sucking on her lollypop and laughing at the adult melodrama, eventually discarding Manson in her wake.

I haven't met anyone who hates heart-shaped glasses. After all, who would ever do such a thing to these lovely glasses, right?

Sunglasses, also known as sun mirror, which used for shading. People’s eye adjusts the flux rely on regulation in the sun .when the light intensity of more than ability to regulate for the human eye, it will cause harm to the human eye. So in outdoor activities, especially in the summer, many people are using to block the sun visor mirror to reduce eye fatigue or adjust the light stimulation caused the damage.
