What I Wore: 8.4.12

I've always wanted glasses, but I have had the (un)fortunate luck to be born with eagle eye vision. I know... poor me, right? Don't worry guys, I haven't let this (dis)ability stop me! Oh no, I'm a fighter. I've been eyeing Warby Parker glasses (no pun intended, unless you chuckled -- in that case, pun totally intended) for over a year now and have successfully blocked out my friends' and family's discouragement. I don't think it's such a weird idea to wear glasses if you don't need them -- they can simply be an accessory for your outfit, just like a scarf or belt. Sure, they serve a utilitarian purpose for people who actually need them, but I love the glasses vibe and want to join in on all the four-eyed fun. I tend to associate fantasy lives and characters with clothing items and accessories, so I've adopted the persona of an artsy, creative gallery owner in these Beckett frames in Aqua Tonic (a limited edition color combo from their Summer Crystal collection). More to come on these in a future post, so keep your eyes peeled. Now, I really want to make more eye/glasses/sight related puns here, but I'm going to spare you. You're welcome!

I fully expect some jeers and ridicule for my new goggles, so do tell.... on a scale of 1 to 10... how stupid do I look? ;)
