It’s amazing how my fashion choices changed dramatically after I bought these new chunky plastic frames. I started to have fun getting dressed again! My old glasses were these rimless wire eyeglass frames. I hardly ever wore them in pictures because they were always crooked. Since they were so thin and rimless, every single time my face got whapped by a fat baby hand or my glasses were yanked off my face, they were impossibly crooked once again.
And can you believe I kept the same glasses for almost 10 years? Yes, I have had the same frames since I graduated high school. And it wasn’t until I met somebody about 7 years ago that I bought contacts for the first time. Every time my contact prescription changed, so did my glasses script, but I was too cheap to buy new frames. Of course now glasses are way more affordable thanks to places like http://www.glasses.com/ that offer free shipping too. But back then? Not so much.
Until now. I was tired of the totally un-baby-friendly glasses that are way-too-easy to bend.
Hello chunky plastic frames!
And hello cuteness!! I am loving these! They are perfection for a dweeb like me don’t you think?
I am very glad I went in and tried on a bunch of different frames. While Glasses.com offers some adorable styles and unbeatable prices, I have a hard time knowing what looks good on me and trying them on is the only way to do it. But then again, Glasses.com has amazing tools for finding out the type of glasses that are best for your face shape and if you don’t like them you can send them back with free shipping! Maybe I should do Glasses.com next time. It would save me money on babysitting!
What about you? Have you bought glasses online? Do you prefer wire or plastic frames?
