Soooo, last week I saw the optometrist for the first time in like…7 years. I know, I know….trust me when I say I will never wait that long again. After feeling like I was drunk with my eyes being dilated and all, the doc tells me I need glasses.
“Great” I say with an exasperated sigh.
Instead of being concerned about the cost of these specks (I’m so cheap) I start envisioning my grown self with glasses. The thought didn’t make me happy. In fact, I was down about it.
It wasn’t until I tweeted my disappointed that I started to feel better. So many of my Twitter friends were telling me how much they loved their glasses and how I would love mine too.
So now I can’t WAIT until I get mine. Next FOTD Friday they will make their debut but in the meantime I wanted to feature some fly ladies rockin’ their specks. I also plan to do “looks that make my eyes pop even though I wear glasses”. Woo!
Kate from Amethyst Makeup is such a cutie pie! This 18 year old cutie (and baby blogger….show her some love!) makes glasses-wearing look chic and stylish. And how gorg is that scarf?
Oh Tonda mama….you look so professionally stunning. I think you need a raise. Visit Tonda’s Twitter page here.
Blogging beauty and YouTube guru Ren from Makeup by Ren Ren matches her glasses with her lippies! Hotness!! She loves MAC’s Funtabulous Dazzleglass as much as I do.
Clumps of Mascara’s own, Tamar, says “I’ve been wearing glasses for years! I really had to see the beauty in them because for a while I felt unpretty. When I finally accepted my beauty through lenses I was brave enough to get contacts. Now I can alternate.” Loves it!
Kelly from Goudly Lox Reviews is so fab, right? I don’t know what to compliment first….her hair, the necklace OR the glasses. She rocks them all beautifully and I love how her glasses give her a sassy but friendly and approachable look.
Wowsers Ms. Allyn….that fro is all kinds of fierceness! Pero your anteojos (Spanish for glasses) are even fiercer. Follow her on Twitter and tell her to update her blog. She has a lot to share with the beauty blogosphere!
Doesn’t Daenel from Living Outside the Stacks look like one of those people that you know you don’t know but you feel like you’ve met her before? She has such a classically beautiful look. Very subtle and natural. And er uhhh….those earrings=gottahavethem!
I think Lachelle and I are cousins and just don’t know it yet. Cuzzo resides at Polish Beauty Blog (fabulous nail blog for brown skin!). Here’s what she says about glasses.
“One time I had a girl ask me why I even bothered to wear eyeshadow and mascara if I have on glasses! What kind of question is that?! I think that wearing glasses shouldn’t stop you from loving makeup! In fact, when you look at glasses from a prospective of all things beauty; they could be seen as an accessory. I just recently got new glasses from DKNY and I couldn’t be happier!”
Massiel’s curls are poppin’! And her naturally thick brows (that many envy) plus her fabulous speckies equal a whole bunch of fabulousness. Rock on, Massiel! Hit up my girl on Twitter!
Mignon from Intellectual Soul. She’s got an inviting smile to go along with her beautiful shades. She makes you just want to run up and give her hug!
Leave it to a support system from the blogosphere and Twittah to make a gal feel better about glasses. And many thanks to my girls for their photo submissions.
Do you wear glasses? Love them? Love ‘em? Hate ‘em?
Check out the video I did in which I dropped a few tips about how to make your eyes stand out while wearing specs.
