Dear Oprah: Gimme Yo’ Frames When You Done Wit’ ‘Em
Thursday at 5:33 pm
I had to be a little ghetto in my speech when it comes to asking Oprah for her eyewear when she’s done with them. While everyone else is listening to her words of wisdom (me too), I’m looking at how sharp Lady O’s frames are! In the 90s, I used to work in an eyewear lab making glasses or at least putting the lenses into the frames, so I know a bit about the eyewear industry.
I was watching The Talk as Sharon Osbourne and Carrie Ann Inaba met with Oprah on her Weight Watchers tour in San Francisco. Again, I’m listening to Oprah but in my mind I’m like “Man! Those frames are sharp!” I was thinking this each time they showed her with a different outfit because of course, you know that her frames had to match what she was wearing.
Oprah even had on a pair of drill mounts, which brought back memories for me because those type of frames were difficult for me to make. You have to have surgeon’s hands to create those in my opinion and it had to be meticulous. You literally use a drill to attach the temple to the lenses for a more distinguished look than the traditional frame. The temple on Oprah’s drill mount I believe was olive green and her lenses were round, giving her the John Lennon look.
A few short years ago I wouldn’t be having this conversation because my vision wasn’t an issue. Such is life with everything else. You don’t start paying attention to things until it hits you. Since I have to wear glasses, I may as well invest in some great looking frames. Not like Oprah’s because I know for a fact she paid a pretty penny for hers; but I can dream, can’t I?
