I have an appointment at the eye doctor in an hour. This is making me do a happy dance. I’m a weirdo. That’s cool.
But it’s been two years (actually more than that, don’t tell my optometrist) since my last eye exam. Which means it has been two years since I last broke a pair of glasses. Yes, I only get glasses when I break the ones I’m currently wearing. Much like two years ago, this time I snapped one of the ear pieces off my current pair. So I still have glasses, they’re just a little lopsided. And my prescription sunglasses (best investment ever) are starting to get totally scratched up. No bueno. Luckily for me both pairs are still functional. Plus I only use them for driving and television watching, so it isn’t like I’m in dire straits over here. (On the subject of Dire Straits, I am now in the mood to listen to Romeo and Juliet)
I’m trying to branch out a little bit with my glasses style. I always get cute but boring glasses. Now I want something just a touch more fun. My window for wearing youthful glasses is starting to seem limited. Maybe some of you think that it’s already closed but to you I say: pashaw!
These are the frames I’m thinking of getting. Slightly cooler than what I have now (and, you know, will have both ear pieces and all) but not so hipster that I look ridiculous. At least that’s my aim.
I’d ask for your honest opinions but I’m not really looking for that. I just want you all to reaffirm my choice. Let’s be honest, when we ask the internets things like this, isn’t affirmation what we’re really looking for?
They’re the Warby Parker Colton frames. I’m also looking to buy some sunglasses but I haven’t settled on a frame yet.
Hopefully in a couple of weeks I’ll be showing off my new glasses and my new sunglasses. At which point you will all tell me how fabulous they- and by extension, I- look. What is this blog if not a place to fish for compliments?
Any big plans for you today?
