DAD GLASSES

Posted on

There are a few phrases that we hear all the time at Opticianado: ‘I had these in eighth grade!’ ‘I look like Harry Potter!’ (you don’t.) …and one of our faves ‘I look like my dad’. Upon scrolling through Instagram, ‘dad’ trends seem to be all over the place. Slouchy jeans and t-shirts, baseball caps, […]
