EYEWEAR HOROSCOPES

Posted on

ARIES It’s important for the first sign of the zodiac to face the world with a frame that conveys their inner self-confidence. As a Mars-ruled fire sign, you are (disturbingly?) goal oriented and need a pair of glasses that is sleek and comfortable as it is risk-taking. The Lindberg Acetanium cat-eye or dark Strip frame, […]
