I’ve been wearing glasses for nearly a decade now, but most people who know me can attest to the fact that I never actually wear my glasses. You see, I’m near sighted and have astigmatism, so for the most part, I only ever need my glasses when I’m driving or watching a theater performance or something far away. The rest of the time, I just go au natural!
But lately, my eyes seem to be getting worse. (Maybe from spending hours upon hours looking at a computer screen?) And I find myself wearing my glasses more and more. I also have prescription sunglasses which are seriously a lifesaver, and I am wearing them a lot these days too. Eyeglasses are starting to become a pretty vital accessory in my day to day ensembles. And while I’ve thought about contacts, I don’t really like the idea of putting something in my eye every day, so I’m not really considering them as a viable option, at least for the moment.
I think it’s swell that glasses seem to be making a fashion comeback, particularly big, nerdy glasses. And I think I could be pretty comfortable with a pair of my own. See, part of my issue with wearing my glasses is that I just don’t think they suit my face. I mean their ok, but I really want to buy glasses that I can feel both comfortable and cute in.
So naturally, I’ve been looking online. Online eyeglasses tend to be the best priced and obviously there is a huge selection! I’ve posted before about how much I adore Lisa Loeb’s line of eyewear. But being as that a pair of prescription glasses can be pretty pricey, I’ve always been hesitant to take the plunge.
