Something to laugh hysterically at.

A few years ago I bought fake glasses from Forever 21. For two reasons mainly,
a) i wanted to feel smart and b) they were $4.(and if you haven't realized I'm the queen of spending money on dumb crap, you haven't been a loyal blog follower for long enough)

I'd wear em here and there. They became a fun little accessory and if I strategically wore them places like Whole Foods or Barnes and Noble people probably really did question my IQ (in the good way)

Yea, well apparently karma doesn't think that shits funny, and she's all "oh you wanna play dress up little girl? ha watch this"

So after getting caught squinting at my computer monitor one too many times, a coworker bullied me into scheduling an eye appointment.

And now I need glasses. Real ones. With lenses and a prescription. Ew. Four eyes.

I deemed myself Too Good (read: too broke) for the glasses offered at the doc's office, and turned to the interwebs. Whit showed up with an entire list of places for me to check out.


Lo and behold, one of them, Warby Parker will send you up to 5 pairs to "try on" before ordering. for free. Free glasses to play in? I'm down to clown.

Clown being the keyword here. Enjoy:







(Clearly, I'm back to the drawing board. Unless there is a comic book convention I can wear one of these options to)

The real stinger: LT was trying them on the other night, and looked like he walked off the pages of GQ. Figures.

i was looking at warby parker too the other day haha. I love that they let you try them on first!

Krystal said...

I almost like the last pair you tried on! I fell in love with a pair I tried on that were green and much smaller than most of their pairs. I never ended up ordering them though -- they're on my Long to do list!

Sandra said...

lol! Welcome to the club! Your hair looks exceptionally good when you have glasses on!

Sarah @ 90 Percent Blonde... said...

Are those even woman's glasses? They look huge on your face! Then again, if you're like me, you may just have a small face and need kid frames (yeah...)

Alana Christine said...

I think you look good with glasses! (Just not the nerdy pairs--lets be honest, nobody looks good in those). haha. You might check glassesusa.com, they have a virtual mirror that you can put different glasses on your face to see what looks good--at least you'll get an idea of what you want!

Mindy said...

I'm with Sarah, I think those glasses are just abnormally large. They don't look bad though, just too big for your frame!

And I totes went to the eye doctor when I was 10 to try to get glasses "for fun" too. He called my bluff. So I'm probably due for glasses now.

I elected to skip glasses all together and just get contacts, a decade later I FINALLY found a pair of glasses I LIKED at the eye DR last week ... but now I have to wait 7-10 days for them to be ready (stupid!)

Just keep trying them on until you find a pair you like! I like the 'half rim' ones because they aren't as heavy looking on my face.

Amanda said...

Why are the frames all so damn big?!?! I was going to order my next pair from WarbyParker... Dang it.

Amber said...

I need to order some glasses, too. Well, first I need to suck it up and get the eye exam... I hate those!
Good luck finding some cute frames :)

Michelle said...

I love Warby Parker! I love that they come in unique colors and styles :D

You'll find some that fit your style

Holly said...

Hahaha! That's the shit they sent? Did they think you were a dude? Too funny! And ya, I'd say karma is a funny bitch :)
