To follow up with my previous review for Victory Optical, it’s time to reveal which of the six frames I decided to keep! You voted to help me choose, and I definitely took your suggestions to heart.
The first pair I fell in love with were the Tang frames in Red! Victory first released Tang in the early 50s, according to their original advertisements, and they’re the pair I’m wearing the most right now. They’re so unique! The thing I love most about Victory Optical is the fact that their frames are actual vintage reproductions, or truly vintage inspired. There’s a heritage and authenticity I feel rings through their frames, making them easy for me to gush about. Love them!
The second pair I’ve chosen to keep are the Miss Exec frames in Pink Pearl! I love the subtle cat eye shape and the color is just too cute. It makes me happy just to look at them!
It’s funny how much I love the color of these frames when they’re alone on the table, and then when I put them on I realize they’re almost the exact color of my face, haha! I picked them because sometimes I don’t want so much contrast around my eyes, so these are a great sort of “low profile” frame …for me lol.
Last but not least, a surprise pair! I didn’t actually review these frames in my original post, I had tried on the Slim Oval instead. I’ve always wanted a pair of 1930s inspired round frames so when I saw the recently released Eye Play I nearly gasped out loud! They’re such classic frames. I love the bridge style and the overall shape. The Eye Play comes in so many fun colors, but I knew I wanted the timeless Honey Amber.
And! To make the Eye Play even more awesome, there’s a new clip-on attachment you can get to turn them into a super sweet pair of sunglasses. Aside from being very 1930s, the attachment also reminds me of a Neo-Victorian/Steampunk look, which is SO COOL!
Victory currently only sells the frames, not the prescription lenses, but you can buy the frames and take them to your local optometrist to have your prescription lenses put in (which is what I did for my El Ria frames).
Victory offers free shipping in the US, as well as free returns. If you’re an international customer, you can request a shipping quote or check out Victory’s many retail locations across the US, Canada, and Australia.
