New specs

I think it's probably considered a bit vain in the blogging world to continually post pictures of oneself, but I wanted to show off my new glasses. They were, of course, the first pair I tried on, but I still needed to try about 100 other pairs to make sure they were THE ONES. I never expected glasses to be so expensive. My last pair were certainly not that costly, but apparently 7 years makes quite a difference. My prescription also changed, so I feel a bit like I'm stumbling around everywhere...and I'm never very graceful at the best of times! However, I'm "looking" much better (translate: I can see without squinting & tilting my head to one side to avoid my scratched lenses), so that's all that matters, right?

For comparison's sake, here's a rare picture of me in my old glasses. Normally I rip them off for photos. Javier absolutely FORBID me to get glasses in a similar shape. I think he's happy with the new look.

Despite my obstacles in purchasing new glasses ( ~ my obstacle is that I have very poor eyesight!), I love getting new glasses! I wear them every day and have since Grade 4! New glasses reflect the person that I have evolved into being since my last glasses!

Happy to hear that you are now seeing clearly! Love your new specs!!

As a full time glasses wearer, I can fully appreciate this post! Your new glasses are really great, very chic, and you look very pretty in them too!
