I Can See Clearly Now

All that driving made my vision deteriorate dramatically, so I had to get some stylish eyeglasses on my trip! Just kidding... the frames are 100% fake. They do have as much UV protection as sunglasses, so I guess they're not completely impractical. The truth is, I've wanted glasses since I was a kid, but I've always had pesky perfect vision. I've tried on many a pair of "geek chic" frames, but these are the first that didn't look ridiculous on me. While I've never had a problem with people wearing glasses for style reasons, I can see why it's sometimes frowned upon. When it comes down to it, I like them too much to not wear them! Besides, aren't writers required to wear glasses? What are your thoughts on the matter?

Anyway, here's one of my beautiful besties and I having way too much fun after a kick-ass tour of Ale Asylum.

I'm a fan of fun and silly gifs, and yours is all of those adjectives. :) As a nearly-blind real-glasses wearer, I've always been a little bit annoyed with the fake glasses trend. But I guess it should be flattering that poor eyesight is "in" now?

I know exactly what you mean! I've had completely perfect vision all of my life, but I long to wear stylish prescription lenses!

the eye doctor told me that my vision was perfect the other week, and then put those drops in my eyes to dilate my pupils and I couldn't see my hand infront of my face for two hours.

I guess I'm pretty thankful.

I am practically blind without glasses or contacts.I hate wearing just my prescription glasses because of the blind spots and also I play sports a lot. SO I have some fake glasses I got from UO that I wear with my contacts I DON'T CARE IF IT IS SILLY and wearing fake glasses is fun :D

I've worn glasses since I was nine and there are many, many drawbacks. For instance, I can't fall asleep watching television or find my glasses when I put them somewhere and walk away for a second. So, appreciate your perfect vision! Wearing fake glasses as an accessory usually doesn't bother me, but the stereotypes ("geeky," "nerdy," "librarian," etc.) do. I could write about this for a long time, but I will leave it at that.

Otherwise, adorable outfit, as always.
