I've actually been looking for new frames for as far back as March! I tried on and contemplated several frames in Ohio while I was home but I left it pretty last minute and couldn't get it together. Then every time I wanted to try on glasses I had on my glasses and well I can't see shit without a prescription so trying them on would have been pointless. Then one day I was in Costco (don't knock it) and tried on frames I really liked; I took a selfie to show NotBlondeHusband but then later made him come back to see them on me. He liked them and shockingly I still liked them (I'm fickle to put it nicely) so I bought them.
When I got them things seemed strange but the woman said it would take time to adjust to the new prescription and to not wear them until the next morning. So I did but wall edges looked curved and it looked like someone had punched my closet door from the inside. Turns out they turned up my astigmatism correction too much--whoops! Any who take two and my prescription is right and I can now show off my new specs!

What do you think? I try not to be a label snob but they are Vivienne Westwood! I absolutely freaking adore Vivienne Westwood so I was super excited. I was really shocked by how many designer name frames Costco opticians had at pretty reasonable prices. I'm so glad I looked on my way to buy 50-gazillion rolls of toilet paper!
I'd really wanted larger black frames but most that I tried on didn't look right. I'm not sure if it is because I'm so
translucent pale but most just didn't work. The inside of my Vivienne Westwood frames are blonde coloured so I think that makes the black less harsh? Maybe I made it up but I think they work some how!
I do like my contacts but I think it's good to give my eyes a break now and then. Also my astigmatism isn't corrected in my contacts so I *think* I should get less eye strain with my glasses? Any way I like them and I'm looking forward to seeing what make-up and hair styles (see the poof/bump it above) I can get away with wearing them. Is that just a me thing or do you think you can get away with different hair and make-up when you wear glasses? Do you wear glasses?
