Glasses????

I've needed reading glasses since I was in 7th grade.  That's 13 years people.  I have never once loved my glasses, or even liked them.  It's always been a case of "that'll do, lets get out of here".  But one of my lessons from Stacy and Clinton, was also a lesson reinforced by my husband (in an utterly separate circumstance, he generally does not watch WNTW) which is if you don't love it don't buy it.  So since it's time for my annual eye exam, I've decided to replace my glasses this year (my prescription usually doesn't change and I only need them for reading, computer, and sometimes laptop work) and had been hunting online for glasses I wanted.  Surprise, Surprise, it was my husband who found them.  This happens a lot actually people, and he's usually my tie-breaker when I don't know which color to buy. It's because he knows me really well, and I often get overwhelmed when making a big purchase and suddenly even if I was super sure before, don't know which one to get.  He usually has me go with my first choice, and it's always right.  But back to the glasses.  The glasses are the Kate Spade Edie glasses.  I am in love with the way they look, and all the reviews say that they're really lightweight, which is absolutely necessary since my current glasses give me terrible headaches behind my ears.  They've actually always done this and it's horrible, since I wear glasses so I don't get headaches when I read. Now I just have to find an optometrist that stocks them or is willing to order them

What I've learned today is to look at my glasses as an accessory since I do sometimes have to wear them in public, and when my sinuses are messed up I can't read a thing without them (it's really weird I swear).  I'm never going to be that girl who wears contacts, mostly because I'll never be that girl that needs to wear her glasses all the time.  Even still, I probably wouldn't do contacts full time, glasses are 100% important.  I had been putting more thought into what I would wear to bed than I was my glasses in the past, and it has caused me to end up with some really stupid looking glasses. Even if you hate that you have to have glasses, get gorgeous ones, they'll make you feel better about them.  Realize they're another accessory, and can be fun or colorful, but still shoot for a bit practical people, else they won't go with everything and you'll look a bit silly.
