che party u

On Wednesday I had the pleasure of going to a party at Che, a boutique eye wear store on Smith Street, Fitzroy. I love – LOVE – vintage glasses – even before I first laid eyes on Jarvis and Graham waaaay back in the early 1990s I loved those big black NHS frames, and I still do, despite their latest hipster status. I love black cats eye frames even more. I would happily wear glasses rather than contact lenses. And you know what? I actually have dodgy vision, but it's only in one eye (will I ever tell you which one? Maybe one day! Perhaps you've seen me squinting cross eyed, and now you know why...) and it's something that can't be fixed by glasses. It's a cruel world. Cruel!

But back to the fun times! Here are some shots from the night. Some of these pieces are original vintage from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s – and they are pretty damn cool. Come to think of it, I read so much that I am pretty sure I could do with a check up..!

And I am afraid I broke the fashion party rules and actually ate one of those pretty cupcakes. They taste as good as they look. Yum!
