OK - a little out of focus (hence why I might need glasses! ha) but my #ThrowbackThursday pic is throwing it back to "old school hip" and some retro sexy librarian specs! What do you think? Thanks to the great gals at Westlake Eyecare for taking care of me! #ATXONE #Austin #GlassesAreTheNewSexy #TBT

Westlake Eyecare with Victorio Marasigan

Doesn't Victorio look cool in his new glasses? He selected a vintage frame from the TOMS line, which means he also helped someone in need with glasses or corrective surgery. Even cooler!
