So, I thought I’d share a bit of a secret: I have terrible eyesight. Honestly, I think I jinxed myself as a kid, because I begged my Mom to get me glasses, which wasn’t as easy as I thought. Little did I know, it involved a Doctor and I needed an eye exam. I remember intentionally lying, during my eye exam, about what letters I saw. I remember that day vividly back in 1997: I said the F was a T and the 3 was an 8. As I got older my eyesight actually got worse, every year it does and it’s super annoying. Genetics might be the reason I have bad eyesight or that lied, but lessoned learned: don’t lie.
My pet peeve about glasses is that I don’t really like going to chain optometrists, because their selection is standard, also known as boring, and the glasses from my optometrist’s office are expensive. Luckily, there are many affordable options, like the Firmoo one’s I’m wearing. I love shopping for my glasses at small boutiques and websites like Firmoo, because they match my taste, meaning they’re unique, but most importantly quality that is affordable. Besides finding a pair of glasses I like , another reason I rarely wear my glasses, is the fact that they’re not chic enough. Sometimes I want my glasses to work with an outfit that is a bit more chic and flirty, but it wasn’t until recently that I found a pair that were both chic and affordable. The black and gold glasses are both polished an chic. I like how they pair with my outfit. I’ve been having a moment with shirts with slits and I like how flirty they look with a skirt.I topped it with a favorite Forever 21 bomber jacket and a new favorite mini bag.The look is effortless, easy, super comfy and perfectly flirty – glasses included.
