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.
