…Because I finally got some new glasses!
Regular readers may remember a post from August, entitled “Andrea Smash” in which I showed you a picture of my glasses held together by tape, and told you that I broke them.
Well. Time passed. I ran out of scotch tape. I bought some more. But I never made an appointment for the eye doctor…
Until last week! But then I got the flu…So I rescheduled! But then I was still sick…So I rescheduled again! And yesterday, the day finally came.
It couldn’t have come any sooner either – because this is what my old glasses looked like when I pulled them out of my purse to show the opthamologist’s:
So now five months later, not only do I have frames that hold themselves together, but I also have a new prescription and lenses that aren’t scratched. I can see again!
Plus, as insurance, I got two pairs, so I should be seeing clearly for a few more years yet :)
Unfortunately, I discovered that no matter how much I love the look of them on the racks, I CANNOT wear glasses that are rounded instead of squared off. Oh man, I’m wishing I had taken a picture now, just so I could show you how ridiculous I looked in some of the glasses I thought were the most adorable, before I actually put them on my face.
Luckily, I still walked away with almost exactly what I wanted – even the color. In the past I’ve usually gone for burgundies and blacks, but this year I had fun with it and went green!
Here are my new readers:
Polo by Ralph Lauren – A dark emerald/forest green on the outside and tortoiseshell on the inside (Click here to see the close-up and description from LensCrafters).
Ray-Ban – A dark tortoiseshell on the outside and an emerald green on the inside (Click here to see the close-up and description from Ray-Ban).
And here’s a picture of me without glasses, because I don’t actually wear them that often :P
So what do you think – which pair is your favorite? Do you wear glasses? What for? What shapes and colors do you usually choose, and why?
