    This matt tortoiseshell cat's eye style is classic & uncomplicated yet it suits so many people. Looks great on the face & is reminiscent of the James Bond secretary look. What can we say? - Moneypenny did have a certain kind of allure...

    Blue, blue, blue. It seems to work so well for so many. This quirky shape is surprisingly flattering on the face, because the top sits nicely above the eye and doesn't look too serious as some frames that sit straight across the top of the eye do. Available in several interesting colours.

    What a nice sleek black and leopard-print frame we have here...if you don't like the cat's eye look, this mildly rectangular frame is still a bit rad but not so much that your boyfriend will say you look like Dame Edna. Just about everyone who has tried this frame on, likes it. That's some feat...
