Pola’s cats eye glasses

 

When I first watched ‘How to Marry a Millionaire’ I decided if I ever had to wear glasses, I’d have Pola’s. Pola is the ‘blind as a bat’ character played by Marilyn Monroe. So, my checklist: Cats eye shape, but not too narrow; Black graduating to clear frames; Diamante along the eyebrow. Not too much to ask, surely.

I was so pleased when I had to get glasses, but the hunt for my dream glasses took a while. Reader, I found them.

These are the Muriel model by DSquared2.

I was so happy when I found a dress like this. It had a tie neck, so I folded the straps back to make a wider band at the join and added two large old bronze poppers at the nape of the neck. I reinforced the cotton with some leather where the poppers were added.

I saw this advert in Vogue and added it to my mental wishlist. It’s amazing what you can find when you know what you’re looking for.
