If you have been following along for years, you might remember that we first released these glasses with BonLook in 2014. Our goal was to create cute but very wearable everyday glasses (they work great as sunnies too). They are menswear inspired and I’ve been wearing mine for the last four years, although I had to up my prescription once during that time (guess I’m getting old, ha!). They are named Jack & Norma after our grandparents, who have been inspiring us since we were children. Our grandpa, Jack, passed away earlier this year. I hesitated to even type that because it still makes me really sad, but also it makes me even more proud of these frames since they are named after him and our wonderful grandmother, Norma.
We were so, so excited that BonLook asked us to do more colors of our bestselling frames, so of course we jumped at the chance and also used it an excuse to get ourselves new colors of our favorite glasses. Here’s what we landed on after going through lots and lots of different samples:
This color is called Licorice and it’s a deep, rich black with marbled specks of white and pink. We really wanted something with a pretty marble look and I also think that they almost look like they have a mini floral print to them. These are really fun, super wearable and probably my new favorite frames if I had to pick one.
This color is Rose, it’s a very classic and translucent pink. In the sun or bright lights, the frames become more transparent, but they always show off at least a subtle pink hue and can look even more saturated in low light. Obviously, Elsie and I love pink, but I also sort of love how these frames almost act like blush on your face when you’re wearing them. So fun and special but still super wearable. I also love that since they are somewhat translucent they will look just a little different on everyone’s skin tone, which makes them even more unique, if you ask me. I can’t wait to see you all wearing these frames!
