|Sweater: Target; Glasses c/o selectspecs|
So I am blind as a bat. My contact lenses are -6.75 in each eye, which is pretty bad.
Have you ever seen How to Marry a Millionaire, where Marilyn Monroe's character refuses to wear glasses and keeps walking into walls because she thinks she won't be pretty in her specs? Well I can relate. Even though C likes me in glasses, I just don't feel attractive in them.
So when Select Specs asked if I'd like to try out a pair of glasses I thought, sure, why not. I was skeptical about the whole ordering glasses online business, but I figured at best they'd at least be a decent back up pair.
Except now that I have them, I voluntarily wore glasses to work because I like them that much.
So the whole ordering glasses online business wasn't as bad as I thought. I just entered in my contact lens prescription, and when it came to the fit I just selected the standard, average fit. If you have the specs on your specs (see what I did there?) already, you can get a more accurate prescription. Mine worked out perfectly though. I do not have a glasses face, and my glasses are always sliding down my nose. These have stayed put all day.
The most important part is that they are ridiculously affordable! My pair was a whopping $14, with a $10 delivery charge. It did that a couple of weeks for them to arrive, but now that I have them on my face, it was well worth the wait. And seriously, for under $25, it was totally worth it. You might as well treat yourself to another pair of glasses; at that price you can rock all sorts of different looks.
