Street Style: Thrifting for Vintage Eyewear


I ran into this inspirational gal with rhinestoned cat eye glasses in Amsterdam. As a 17 year old, Ellie is independent and going to university in The Netherlands. She has also lived in India, Boston and Australia. 

So how do find vintage eyewear? Ellie's tip, go to a flea market and search for a pair you like, then take them to your local optical department to fill in those two holes.

We did just that and went to Amsterdam's Waterlooplein flea market. It was cold, hello winter coat in the Spring. I wish I had grabbed those 7 euro frames I have on in that picture, silliness that I didn't get them, they were so funky fun! 



You can also find great vintage glasses online. These ones look a lot like Ellie's.

Happy vintage eyewear search to you!
