It’s true. Since Fashion Magazine beauty director Lesa Hannah got the specs she wears in this photo, she’s been besieged by compliments. The geek-chic cat-eye frames with a smart multiplication symbol on the left upper corner and division on the right spark enthusiastic conversation everywhere. It’s a total shit-girls-say scenario: OmigodIloveyourglasseswheredidyougetthem?? Heck, I gush practically every time I see Lesa. And I’ve been waiting for her to write about them so I can share.
So here, Lesa can tell you more:
When I bought new glasses last fall, there was no way I could possibly have anticipated the reactions the oversized tortoiseshell cat eyes would elicit from strangers. These included a flight attendant asking me to get up from my seat and come show them to her colleague; in New York City, a woman approaching me in Bloomingdale’s saying she had seen me earlier in Madewell and had to know where I got my glasses; after appearing on “The Marilyn Denis Show” on behalf of the mag, a viewer emailed prodding to know the same.

Oh, hey Lesa? Love those glasses.
