Glasses Fashion: Once Upon A Time

I know this is an old episode at this point, but I am a slow television watcher.  I probably would never see any TV shows if it weren't for DVR or Hulu.  Anyway, I was very happy to see Once Upon a Time's main character Emma (played by Jennifer Morrison) sporting a sophisticated glasses look in the episode Tallahassee.  It was interesting that directors styled Emma's criminal past with glasses-- a look that in the past would have been relegated to just "dorky."  That's how far we have come, people!  Want to make a character look edgy and mysterious?  Put her in super trendy glasses of course!

Emma's criminal, car-thieving look can be achieved with similar styling from a personal favorite: Robert Marc (below).

Black frames can be difficult to pull off for people with fair complexions, so I recommend going with a thinner frame and temples to prevent theglasses from becoming over-powering.  In today's world of over-sized glasses, proportion is always key!
