Can a women's eyeglass frame be soft and feminine while standing its ground in a professional shark-infested professional environment? The Eastport frame answers with a resounding YES. Making that case, the gently sloping rectangular shaping takes this classic geometric shape to a new soft level. Though constructed of durable plastic, the lines are thin, light -- almost ethereal as they rest gently on the nose. The state-of-the-art plastic temples are metal reinforced and their spring hinges provide an easy yet firm, secure fit. When it comes to color, the Avalon walks a fine line between serious conservatism and downright grinning sarcasm. Color choices of burgundy and black may sound traditional, but the temples have a clear polka dot pattern which nearly replicates precocious perforations. Feminine with inner strength, conservative with a cheeky attitude, the Eastport eyeglass frame personifies this century's powerful women.
