ARE THE EARLY 00s VINTAGE YET?

Posted on

I remember being a young teenager in the early 2000s, and some of the truly regrettable stylistic choices I made (rhinestones and low-rise jeans everywhere).

FBI Special Agent Dana Scully of The X Files is remembered for lots of things; her intelligence, rigid skepticism, and now with the 90s resurgence in full effect, her gorgeous metallic frames. At Opticianado, we carry a wide variety of vintage metal frames reminiscent of Scully’s signature look. This type of frame is a great […]
