Yay for new glasses! It was TIME. Now that I'm working from home, I wear glasses a lot more than my contacts. I've had my clear vintage specs for a couple of years now. I still love them, but a girl needs to accessorize! Plus, they were quite heavy and I could only wear them for half a day before getting a headache. Probably doesn't help that I have insanely thick blind-as-a-bat lenses.
Right when I announced to the universe I needed new frames - the eye gods, aka Coastal.com, graciously offered me two new pairs as a Style Ambassador. Diving timing! I choose one designer brand and one pair from their exclusive collection.
I was a little hesitant about ordering frames online, especially with my strong prescription and astigmatism challenges. But their optometrist explained that as long as I ordered pairs that were shorter in height, I would be a-okay. And I could always return them if they didn't work out. After much deliberation, I decided on an every day light-as-air black cat-eye frame from Vogue. And a saucier purple rectangular frame from Love. Which do you like best?
Now I can finally match my glasses with my outfits. The black pair for when I'm wanting to blend in. I love wearing them with dressier ensembles. And the purple pair for when I want to stand out. They're a ton of fun with casual jeans and a tee.
Do you wear glasses? Or do you wish you wore them? If I was brave enough to subject my corneas to laser eye surgery, I'd probably still wear my specs without the lenses. I've needed them since I was four - they're who I am. Once a glasses geek, always a glasses geek!
