OK, so I don’t really get into politics on this blog, but since people are talking about them AND it was in USA Today…. here is the info on Sarah Palin’s glasses.
The Palin frame — minus the lenses — starts at a suggested $375. Depending on the type of lenses, the total package can run to $700.
Matching the look won’t be easy. Although the frames are sold at many optical boutiques, the shape of the strongly rectangular lenses was custom-made for Palin by Home Optics, an upscale retailer in Chugiak, Alaska.
Owner Joy Leedham went to Palin’s home in late December and fitted her in her kitchen — where Palin considered nearly 300 frames. They narrowed it to five frames, and Palin’s family helped pick the winner. The frame is Kawasaki’s 704 series, and the color is 34 gray, Hahn says.
Palin is nearsighted and has slight astigmatism, Leedham says. She does not wear bifocal lenses.
Palin told Leedham that she owned seven pairs of glasses. The frames that Palin picked “help her look fashion-forward,” Leedham says.
