So, did I mention that I got myself some new glasses? These are a bit of a departure from my usual, wire-rimmed conservative look. They're sexy and sassy and completely hot, and they're plastic frames (which normally don't work on my bridgeless schnoz but these come with nosepads!). My smokin' new frames look like this:
Unfortunately, I don't have my glasses in my possession just yet. You see, my optician and I both failed to read the fine print that says that the nosepads are "available" with the frames (meaning they don't come on the frames by default). He ordered in the snazzy frame, only to discover (upon my arrival for the fitting) that the crucial ingredient to pulling these frames off on my flat Asian face was distinctly missing.
Well, we solved the mystery and I get my nosepad-laden frames next week. In the meantime, though, I wanted to wear new glasses to stave off the disappointment of not having my actual sexy ones ready. The optician just so happened to have the same frame, WITH nosepads, in a different shade. So, in uber-sassy, colour-clash fashion, I have been sporting these frames for the past few days:Yes, these are turquoise glasses with brown accents. Yes, conservative little ol' me is sporting these specs. I have to admit, with them on I feel a little more sassy than usual, and a little more conspicuous. I think I draw more attention, too, although from my shopping experiences so far, these have been favourable friendly experiences rather than looks of disgust or horror. I have to admit, I'm having fun with the glasses, not unlike how brunettes have fun when they dye their hair a fun and unconventional red or blonde hue.
So whaddaya think about crazy coloured glasses vs. sexy black? Are you a funky glasses sort of person or do you tend to stick with more conservative frames and colours?
ADDENDUM: My optical store is obviously far more efficient that most service-providing places I've been used to, so I did not expect the pleasant surprise of having my sexy black frames arrive on site a mere 2 days after I had written this post. I eagerly rushed over to the store just hours after getting the call, and switched from my crazy blue frames to my more sexy black ones. I *love* these black frames, thank you everyone for your feedback, and I definitely feel more "at home" in these than with the blue ones. Hubbs hasn't been able to tear his eyes away from me either, so I take it he likes my new specs as well! ;)
