I wanted to share my new glasses from the Marilyn Monroe collection by Optiq Frames. They have some interesting frames and I did find one pair I really liked. Obviously, these are not based on anything Marilyn actually wore – they are not vintage looking.
However, I do like the styles that have her name on them and that is what I got. I picked the green ones with “Marilyn” on each arm. They also have some rhinestones on the sides. The really cool thing is on the inside of one arm is a tiny photo of Marilyn! What a neat detail! These come from the Shaw Family Archives.
The eyewear line also features sunglasses, however, none of them have “Marilyn” on them. A few sunglass styles do have a “M” surrounded by a circle of rhinestones. I like them – they also feature the same Marilyn image on the inside of the arm. You will be able to win your own pair of Marilyn sunglasses pictured below on the April Podcast – so stay tuned.
