You know those 'party' glasses look mighty familiar to me. I know my mom bought me a pair almost exactly like these but, of course, with blue glitter on the very blue horn-rim frames way back in 1957. She said it made my blue eyes....look even BLUER. WOW...Every girl or guy even wants glasses like THAT. I thought. So, I wore those 'cool' blue-sparkly' horn-rimmed glasses for several years without complaint, thinking I was IT.. Thanks a lot Mom. You helped make me who I am today. Jan
I found this photo on FACEBOOK this morning from George Takei.
Here's a video about horn rim glasses. This was the first music I remember making wearing glasses O.K.This video is called 'The Girl With The Horn Rimmed Glasses' from TheGoodlucks. This is what the page says: " Published on Nov 20, 2012
A goofy little song, recorded in 1965 -- performed here on the '60s TV show "Shindig", by Carole Shelyne, who was a featured dancer on the show. Carole stood out among the other dance performers on "Shindig" because of her oversized glasses, which led to much popularity and fan mail, and eventually, this novelty song, She appeared on numerous TV shows of the 1960s. Carole now works under the name Carolyne Barry as a successful casting director and acting coach. Her long and interesting career in the entertainment business can be viewed here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0791418 . For anyone interested, she has a website http://www.carolynebarry.com" Jan
