Want Some Sarah Palin Glasses?

Posted By on Tue, Sep 30, 2008 at 4:00 AM

Wanna resemble a barracuda in lipstick? Or maybe just Tina Fey? Midtown's Eclectic Eye says it's the only shop in town that carries vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin's rimless Kazuo Kawasaki eyeglasses.

According to recent news reports, the Palin frames have been flying off store shelves and are often on back-order. But optician Randall Bennett at the Eclectic Eye says customers can find a similar frame in stock. If you want the exact look, you'll probably have to wait for the product to be delivered.

"Palin's optician didn’t recommend anti-reflective lenses, but he should have. That's why she's always got that glare on camera, but you can get the same glasses with anti-reflective lenses here," says Bennett.

The Kazuo Kawasaki frames run from $450 to $475, and lenses are priced separately. Bennett says the phones have been ringing off the hook for Palin glasses in their Collierville location.

"When I mention the frames to most people in our Midtown store, they just politely put their hand on my shoulder and say, 'I don't care what she wears,'" laughs Bennett. --Bianca Phillips
