Fidel Castro Helped Make Cat-Eye Eyeglasses Popular

We are witnessing history in the making with U.S. President Barack Obama visit to Cuba hoping to repair diplomacy. I know what you’re thinking, Blink Optical doesn’t get political.  Of course not!  We’re here to discuss how Fidel Castro made cat-eye eyeglasses popular.  It is a little known fact that Fidel Castro wore cat-eyes, let alone helped popularize them.  Besides promoting Marxism, Mr. Castro also promoted edgy eyewear fashion.  The heavy, black cat-eye eyeglasses sported by Fidel Castro in the picture above are as popular as ever and caught on quite a bit better in the United States than his revolutionary social and economic views.  To steal this cat-eye look, check out Blink Optical’s selection of retro eyewear in collections such as Face a Face and Lunor.  President will not be meeting with Fidel Castro but not because of his lack of fashion sense.
