Colourful Glasses!

Any of you lucky be-spectacled readers will likely nod in agreement with the following statement: Hearing that your glasses prescription has increased is the best news you’ve heard all week. Or the best news you’ve heard since you last placed your chin on one of those funny plastic Iron Man mask-esque pupil checking devices… You know, your heart does an extra little pump and your pupils dilate at the thought of choosing a new shiny pair of glasses. Of course, you try to conceal it, heaven forbid the optician may judge you for your enthusiasm. Anyway, to the glasses!

Needless to say, this happened to me a couple of weeks back and off I galloped to find a pair of glasses to replace my go-to trusty black pair. ‘These next frames’, I told myself, ‘will be colourful’! In an instant, I found them. All other spex were pushed aside, some only lightly came into contact with my nose, for these mottled black and pastel blue sassy spectacles were meant to be.

Not too showy, still defining the brows and subtly incorporating a unique touch of turquoise, (they also come in pink!) they’re pretty perfect to style with this cute pastel get-up, fit for going back-to-school. It’s not about your new shoes anymore, it’s all about the awesome eyewear!

    Those are the cutest glasses! I definitely get excited to choose new frames, and I am SO aching to get new glasses since I sat on my favorite pair and uh… dropped my other ones in the yard and they got run over by the lawn-mower. My only pair left (thank goodness I had three) are super old and the prescription is not very good. Sigh. I LOVE the color on the frames, and the size of them. They look perfect on you!

    I’ve been considering getting hornrimmed glasses for a while, but this post is now making me seriously consider getting two-toned glasses!
