  • Love these!

    Color: Tortoise; Size: M

    These frames are so cute! They look exactly like inimagined and they are comfortable. Not the most sturdy frames I’ve owned but I think that’s...

    Love the look of these frames! They do fit a little small width wise but otherwise they're great! They're well built!
