New glasses!

January 28th, 2010

They’re here! And they do actually look a bit like the ones on that “Miss Conduct” doll:


Mr. Improbable and I both like them, but Milo’s not so sure. He’s such a fashion conservative.


In case you can’t tell, the frames* are black on top and green on the bottom. I wanted to blog this whole outfit, because I like it, but we didn’t get a good full shot. Do, though, check out my cool bib necklace. I picked this up for a mere $10 at Buffalo Exchange, a new used-clothing store in Davis Square (and elsewhere — they’re a chain). It looks a lot like this one. I love wearing it with this dress, because it hits right at the neckline and therefore looks like an embellishment on the dress itself. I bet making zipper jewelry would be a fun project — you get a lot of bang for some broken zippers, a piece of felt, and a hank of ribbon.

*Yes, given that Michelle Obama is my fashion muse and inspiration (some might say obsession), I did find it ironic that the make of frames I chose is called “Sarah,” thank you very much.

    Where did you get your frames, was it online? If you want to have more fun with frames my DH had good luck with the an online site 39dollarframes, all they needed was the RX including focal distance which isn’t normally written on the RX you need to ask for it. And then find out what size it is you like, those numbers on one of the arms will give you the dimension of your frames, meaning the bridge length, arm length, and lens width. I don’t use it because I am a contact girl myself.

    You do look good in them.

    Wow! That is useful information, WES. Thanks. I’ve been thinking about getting a pair of prescription sunglasses, but these babies were pretty expensive and I couldn’t afford a second pair when it would really only be a fashion accessory … but $39 frames? Hmmm….

    They’re lovely! Just perfect for your face – classic, with a dash of sassy. Congrats.

    That’s a cute look, looks great with your bangs. Good going.

    Nice glasses. Espacially since I just own some of those quite expensive silhouette designer glasses, another pair would be great. Thanks for this post! :-)
