I recently found out, after more than ten years wearing contacts every day, that I have to wear my glasses all the time. It's been a bit of an adjustment, but I really can't see without them, so I'm finding ways to manage. The first was to buy an exciting new pair of frames.
I debuted my new specs the other weekend at a Shoppalu sale. The lovely Janice invited a group of very excited girls into her home to browse through racks of vintage and new clothes, shoes and jewelry. [And her grandma made pork dumplings for the occasion- I had to take leave of my vegetarianism to try them. Delicious!] There were so many exciting things- I think I might have tried on about half of them!- that I was actually glad I had my glasses on to see them all properly. I decided to go with a practical- but still stylish- outfit for the evening. What I didn't think about was a practical hairstyle. My bun looked a lot, um, fluffier after pulling sweaters and dresses over my head all evening!
