Bonnie Cameron, Eyewear Architect
I got my first pair of glasses when I was 16 months old – not a typo! I wasn’t even walking yet. I’ve worn glasses (probably a hundred pair by now) for so long, that I feel absolutely undressed without them. Eyewear has become an integral part of how I express my personality and style. My clothes tend to be minimalistic, so I love to spice things up with colorful shoes, funky accessories and amazing eyewear.
When I was younger, I saw my glasses as a burden – something I HAD to wear. Now, they are always my favorite part of every outfit. Over the years, I’ve had glasses I’ve adored, glasses I’ve loathed and everything in between. Here’s a brief glimpse of my life in glasses.
This is my first pair of (now broken) baby glasses. Tiny bifocals for a tiny baby!
Quarter for scale.
My sister and me (and my tragic bangs) at Halloween, age 3.

My cat Trixie and me, approximately age 11.
I think she wore those glasses better.

And finally, me in my all-time favorites! Anne et Valentine Arcade frame from Eclectic Eye. A classic.
