I've worn glasses (bifocals) since I was five years old! That's a hell of a long time to be wearing old man lenses. I have an Aquiline (read: Roman) nose, and even though I was totally self-conscoius that the glasses made me look like a nerd, at least I thought they kind of hid my nose. Somewhere a couple years ago I decided that I had come to terms with my "strong profile" and was kind of sick of my glasses. I can see pretty much, but I do need them for long periods of reading/movie-watching/driving. Plus, if I don't wear glasses, I can wear sunglasses instead!
Anyway, more to the point is that I've had the same Miu Miu frames for like four years now and I'm kind of sick of them. I want new glasses. I mean, ultimately, I would love to have Lasik and not have to wear glasses, but for now that's not really in the picture. I was watching St Elmo's Fire the other day, though, and I was inspired by the odd 80s retro frames worn by Demi & Rob Lowe's characters (even though his are sunglasses... I am ALWAYS in the market for new sunglasses). So, here they are:
funky, grey, with a hint of Grandma
I like the Ray Ban Clubmasters, but I think I want something a little more unique.
Same goes for the Wayfarers. They are timeless, but as much as I love them, they are a little common. I adore tortoiseshell frames, though!
I feel like Val and Kristen on BleachBlack are always posting about cool eyewear shops in LA, so maybe I'll check one of those out.
Also, all of the titles of my posts are song lyrics or titles. This one comes from Fishbone.
