Today I am wearing glasses. Yes this is new to me. Usually you can only see me doing such a thing in the early morning or late evening hours. I wore my older glasses to work a few months back and received some positive responses from co-workers, so I thought it might be time for some new frames. (Clearly I’m very influenced by compliments!) I went to LensCrafters and met with a doctor. The hardest part was picking from their huge selection of designer frames (I’m a Pisces — decisions are always hard!) I ended up going with these frames by Ray-Ban and was shocked when they said my glasses would be ready in less than 24-hours — A+ for customer service!
I decided to wear them today and had some trouble getting dressed this morning. What do people who wear glasses every day do? For me glasses are an accessory, not an necessity (since I will probably go back to my contacts tomorrow). I choose my frames not because of my love for Woody Allen, but because they are cool and trendy. For some reason I felt the need to rock some menswear, so I chose a button down shirt and a short skirt. I was going to go with heels but when I slipped on a pair at work, my boss said I looked “naughty.” NOT the look I was going for so I stuck with the neon pink flat sandals.
Apparently the verdict is that I look smart today. I assure you, my IQ hasn’t risen – but they did inspire me to take a poetry break from my busy work day…
If you switch between glasses and contacts, do you find yourself making different fashion choices when you’re wearing your frames?
