New Glasses and a New Look

Last week I had my first real eye exam and found out that I do indeed need glasses. The doctor said it is a small prescription for them, and I don’t have to wear them all the time. I waited until Saturday to get them because of Thanksgiving I had to wait an extra day.

So, here I am in my new Burberry glasses. Cute huh? Not the best picture, but it isn’t easy to do with a regular digital camera while holding it yourself okay?

This is my most expensive “accessory” I’ve ever owned. They really get you on everything they can when you buy glasses. Frames, lenses, special extras like anti-glare and scratch and whatever really adds up! Luckily I was able to go with their “buy one get one free” special so I also got sunglasses. Unfortunately, they aren’t Burberry, but they are cute!

I remember in high school I wanted to get some fake glasses to wear to work so I’d look smart. People don’t always take women seriously, and add being blonde to that and well you get the picture.

Now though, I have to wear them to work. Driving (especially at night) I really need to wear them. Plus, I like being able to see trees as trees and not something like from a Monet painting.

Do you have any glasses stories you’d like to share with me? I’d love to hear it!

Your glasses are cute! I've been wearing glasses since kindergarten. I mostly wear contacts but I do wear my glasses around the house. Oakley is my favorite brand and I have a new pair in the drawer waiting on new lenses. I'm just too lazy. You should see the ones that I am wearing now....One of the nose pieces is missing. I need to seriously get those lenses done this week...LOL!
