and they're real this time


My glasses came in! It's my first pair of prescription glasses, which I shouldn't be excited about, because it means my vision isn't what it used to be. But I'm actually really excited because 1) I can see clearly now, 2) hopefully this will curb my daily headaches, and 3) I like them.


p.s. They're Ray-Ban and I got them at Margate Opticians, which is right next to my mom's store.

  6. Ah, these are so cute! I miss glasses sometimes-- I just got lasik for a wedding gift from my uncle. It was an offer I couldn't pass up, but I wore glasses since 2nd grade!

  10. These look lovely on you. I have always worn nerdy glasses, and I wanted these so bad. But, when I put them on, I looked (I'll put it nicely) not good at all. I wish I could pull off that style. We would be twins right now if I could!

  11. I love them.

    Want to hear a secret that's not a secret anymore? When I was in high school and I had to speak in front of the class, read something, etc, I would put on my fake glasses and pretend they were reading glasses or something of the sort. I had them all fooled! I know it sounds terrible, but I love glasses and hope to have some in the future. I suck.

  17. :o! I tried on a pair of cateye glasses a few years ago when and ABSOLUTELY loved them but I didn't need glasses at that time. I'm pretty sure I went to EVERY store that sold glasses last year and couldn't find any cateye glasses that even fit my face :( ANYWAYS, I LOVE YOUR GLASSES!

  21. I just broke my current glasses and I'm blind without them - so it's contacts all the time until I find some new frames. I'm actually excited to go frame shopping, I think there's some really cute ones out there right now. I'm definitely going to check out the Ray-Bans!

  27. I know exactly how you feel! I kept putting getting my glasses cause I didn't want to have to wear one but when I did get them I could see so much clearer. It was good. I still would prefer not to wear glasses but it's not as bad as I thought it would be.

    You look good with it anyway. :)

    much love.

  33. Oh man! Cute!! I wish I could have helped you pick them. I'm an optician in LA. I know I'm a bit far from you but I already have some cute ideas in my head about what would look awesome!

    I guess after awhile of being in the eyewear fashion industry, when you see a face and a person's style... you immediately think of a frame or style that will best suit them.

    In any case, glad you are happy with your newfound sight and look!

  37. well they look adorable on you! having poor vision kinda sucks but i personally feel once you go glasses you never go back!

  38. Kat: Maybe you could give me some input on my next pair? I'm planning on buying some from Warby Parker http://www.warbyparker.com/womens-eyewear

    because they're only $95 including lenses and shipping, and they donate a pair to someone in need. Let me know if you see any you think would be good for me!

  39. i <3 these frames! makes me want to get a new pair...

  41. I know what you mean about excited but shouldn't be! I got my first pair this week, and they're Ray-Bans too! Unfortunately the cat-eyes looked no good on my rounder face, but I still love my wayfarer-esqe-but-narrower ones. God to have a reason to splurge on Ray-Bans as I never would have been able to justify sunglasses on my budget!

  42. Dear Keiko,

    We officially would love to welcome you to the Four Eyes Club! Just because you have less-than-perfect eyesight doesn't mean you have to look so! At least your first pair of glasses are super cute... I can't really say the same for my first pair that I got in 2nd grade. :D

    Anyway. These perfectly frame your eyes (well, duh, but the cat-eye and all just works so well), very darling. 83

    Sincerely, Toast with Charmalade

  48. Your glasses are super cute and look gorgeous on you! I've been four-eyed since the fourth grade, and I love it. It's become part of my personal style and I get compliments on my glasses all the time!

  63. Gorgeous pair of glasses that suit you so well (I'm still on the hunt for my own perfect cat eye pair)!

    As an aside : I usually lurk but I wanted the chance to say thank you for your recent post on body image.
    I know style bloggers are allowed to post on whatever content they desire, and most that I follow tend to stray from sharing anything that hits too close to the heart (I can be like this as well); I just wanted to say how wonderful it is how open and honest you are to your readers. You're extremely articulate in your thoughts and it's always comforting that others share similar experiences to your own. Body image and self-worth in women will always be a hot - button issue and thank you for discussing it in a thoughtful, caring way. (The Killing Us Softly series on Youtube really touch on this as well)

  64. Those are awesome -- especially w/ the cat's eyeliner. I wear RX glasses, too. One day I want a drawer full of different frames to mix & match w/ outfits.

  67. octtomolly: I like those! What brand are they/where did you get them?

  68. paperpocket: I *love* vintage frames and have a pair that I keep in my jewelry box. They're the best, ever - but they're too tiny for me! Most vintage frames are either too small in general or the sides don't reach my ears. I must have a big head, compared to the little ladies of the 50s and 60s.

    ReplyDelete
  69. The Suburb Experiment: You should also check out WarbyParker.com - lots of cool frames and they're $95 including lenses and shipping. PLUS they give a pair to someone in need with every purchase. Kind of fantastic all around.

  70. baller! i ordered some vintage looking glasses online. the only thing i dislike about ordering them online is that there's a glare...but eh. mine are mostly for night driving :)

  74. you look so cute with those glasses on! I wish I could pay a million of different glasses, because it's after all an accessoire, which should match with your outfit.
