I have worn glasses since I was five years old. There were a lot of really bad frame choices made while I was growing up. I had huge bright red plastic frames that took up half my face at one point. There were pink rectangular plastic frames, blue wire oval frames with a tiny dog sticker I stuck in the corner of one of the lenses...the list goes on.
It wasn't until I was quite a bit older that I realized there were actually some really fantastic eyeglasses to be had. And when I was old enough to pay for them myself, that's when the real fun began.
I recently had an eye exam and discovered my prescription has changed yet again. I already have a couple pairs of Chanel frames and I could have just had the lenses changed out (and still plan to) but what fun would that be? If I have to live my life with a pair of glasses resting on my face I am going to fully milk that situation for something to shop for.
These are my newest pair. I was looking for something very geek chic. Nerdy yet something very cute at the same time. I tried on about a billion (real number: 30ish) pairs of frames before trying these on and throwing all other options out. I immediately loved them. They're by Tory Burch although I can't find a name or style number. If I do though I will be sure to update. Also, they come with a very fun gold metallic case.
Also, unlike the tall and lanky blonde Free People models that is actually me.
