Those of you who follow me on twitter or facebook have already seen them (I'm bad at surprises) but here are the new frames I picked up at my appointment with LensCrafters! I went in there with a pretty open mind but was pretty sure I would leave with something very different than these. I tried on several pairs but ultimately decided to go with something bold and bright. Since I already have a pair of black frames and they graciously fitted my brown vintage frames with my prescription, I figured I might as well go with something different. I've been loving the variety. Glasses are fun! Unlike braces, which I also wished for and ended up not loving as much. I hated my retainer even more, which is why I have crooked teeth but I digress.

Naturally, the first time I wore my new glasses, I paired them with a bunch of matchy-matchy items from my wardrobe because that's exactly what you're not supposed to do. Oh, they're reddish coral? I'll see that and raise you a matching shirt, bag, lipstick, nails and bracelet. I'm also that girl who listens to songs on repeat, so don't expect me to practice moderation. You're lucky I'm not wearing 50+ bracelets right now, because five year old me wore so many bracelets I had to walk with my arms held out. I broke up the colors with that little chambray dress by Fischer - an independent and local label I love. The designer sent Bobby and me a beautiful package of her designs and I have been wearing both this dress and this shirt a lot. I love classics that I can wear over and over. I can't wait to see what's in store for them in the near future!

  4. These red frames look great on you! I love that you change up your glasses so often. It keeps things fun and interesting. I usually wear wireless glasses so they're not so noticeable but I'm really starting to love the bold frames.

    Adore your outfit!

  5. These glasses are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just like your Ray-Ban's, the shape is uber flattering. The color is so vivid and bright--it's absolutely lovely with your red lip! Great choice.

  43. great glasses, fantastic colour on you! sometimes it's definitely good to go for something that stands out, rather than count how many outfits it will go with in your wardrobe :) I don't wear glasses, but i am on the lookout for a new pair of sunglasses - something totally not classic or timeless, but fun instead :)

  45. I love those red glasses on you! My mom wore some like that in the '80s, and I jokingly called her "Sally Jesse Raphael" like the talk show host, but I really like this look now. You made me a believer!
