|The corner piece had snapped!|
Please note, this is not intended to be a permanent *fashionable* repair. However, it will be much more sturdy and look a whole lot better than scotch tape (I tried that route. I also tried balancing them on my nose and holding them in place with a hat.). Also, since many frames are different, this may not work for your exact pair. You should be able to tell by looking at your frames after reading the steps.
What you need is a tiny screwdriver and very thin crafting wire. If you want to be super awesome, use a color wire that matches your frames!
First, remove the screws. There should be two.
|This side wasn't broken, but I used the picture for an example of where the screw is located. Of course, you could wrap wire around both sides so it looks like it was always meant to be that way. (Fashion Week, here I come!!!)|
|You can see the residue from when I used tape.|
|Just make sure the wire is very thin|
String it through the screw holes.
|Using wire give the frames stability while still allowing them to move.|
Sure, it is not perfect, but it is whole lot easier to manage while waiting for new glasses. I have been dreadfully procrastinating that one. I have a new prescription, but I lost it. By the way, I am going to take the plunge and buy glasses online. It is crazy cheap (Like $20). I mean, really, how many people can actually tell if you are wearing Ralph-and-Lauren-made-in-Italy glasses? Sigh. Can you tell I am going to miss my old glasses? Ha.
