When my cousin first purchased these in November, I immediately needed to have them, but they were out of stock! I contacted Coastal representatives on Facebook who reassured me they were doing their best to restock them, so I had to wait patiently until the end of January to order mine. I just received them in the mail yesterday (February 6th), and they were SO worth the wait :) I am in love, and so obsessed! I've already gotten compliments on them from strangers, and my friends are all asking me where I get my amazing frames from! I feel like they fit my face perfectly and make my eyes stand out. They complete my outfits perfectly. Alternate frames of the same shape are actually extremely difficult to find, so if you like these, get them while you can!! You will NOT be disappointed.

Like afm, who commented below, I was so excited when I saw that these frames were back in stock. I've been wanting a dramatic pair of cateyes and thought that these were the ones - sadly, when they arrived in the post yesterday, I realised that I was wrong. They're not nearly as dramatically curved as they appear both in the product shot and on the model; the top portion of the frames is much straighter than pictured. I have a narrow face, but these are proving to be much too tight for me. I know that often with eyeglasses you have to take them to be reshaped and melted a bit to achieve the perfect fit, but I think their narrowness combined with the weight of the frame is making them too uncomfortable to bother, (I've only been able to wear them for a few hours daily, before the bridge of my nose becomes too sore and red with indents).

I'm considering exchanging them for the Love L747 frames, which I do not like as much based on their photo, but since these ones look different from how pictured on the website, perhaps I'll like the Love frames more in real life.

They're cute frames, but I'm disappointed that in reality they're not as contoured as they appear and they really aren't proving to be comfortable/wearable.

      Comments about Derek Cardigan 7005 Black:

      I purchased these about 3 years ago when Coastal offered the first pair free. I had no idea I would love these glasses so much. I was nervous that the frames would be too big, but they actually fit the size and shape of my face really well. A few months ago the arm to the frames just fell off when I picked them up, not sure how that happened, it couldn't be screwed back on so I just super glued it and they've been great ever since. The only downside is that they have faded on the sides and it's pretty noticeable since they're black. But I guess that's to be expected after all these years. I'd definitely purchase another pair at full price.

          I love these glasses so much. This is my second pair of Derek Cardigan cat eyes. I love them so much, I have just ordered them in purple and ordered the brown/aqua ones as sunglasses. I get so many compliments on these. They are just on the verge of being over the top but they work great for casual or dressy occasions. I'm so glad I found these. They are my favorite glasses ever.

              I'm absolutely OBSESSED with coastal.com and the Derek Cardigan line. I saw these glasses in the Brown Tortoiseshell and fell in love. Opening a box from Coastal is like opening a present. These gorgeous frames literally go with everything and I get compliments on these glasses each and every day I wear them.

              They're a larger frame, so be wary of that when you buy them. If oversized frames are your thing, these are PERFECT!

              Comments about Derek Cardigan 7005 Black:

              I love these frames, they fit really well and I really like that the cateye is so subtle, but the symbols fall out after a long time of continued wear. I wish I could buy the equals signs to put them back in! These are perfect big bold frames, I love that they're a bit cateye too. I've seen a lot of complaints about the change in style from the original model but I think both styles are lovely and I'd love to have both. I would definitely recommend these and buy them again for myself!

                Out of my 20 year career of wearing glasses, these are by far my most favourite pair I've ever owned. This actually my second pair of black 7005's and I've got the brown as well. I think I have a fairly round face and these specs suit it well. I get compliments on these glasses nearly everyday. They're sturdy, thick frames and they hold up well. Hopefully Derek Cardigan keeps making these frames because I'm certain that these are "the ones" for me.

                    Out of all of my frames, this pair is my all time favorite. Traditional cat-eye frames are usually made for small faces...which I do not have. Nice and large, this frame compliments any face shape.

                    I am in love with these glasses. They are pretty big but thats the best part of this frame. I find that they feel dirty at times because the lenses are big however thats ok I dont mind cleaning them. I ordered mine as prescription glasses even though they would make fun sunglasses. I do recommend this frame because it goes with just about any outfit.

                        I've had these for about a week now and I enjoy them a lot. I was scared to get these at first because online they look quite big, but they're actually not that large in person. The only thing is that they are a little tight on my temples, but nothing too bad. They don't leave marks or anything. I'd give them a go!
