In the evening...

I actually have two pairs of glasses. The ones that I have been wearing, which are a modern rectangular design and are made of a thin bronze colored metal. I chose these in a hurry, because I thought I wanted something different and more youthful. I ended up never liking them very much, but wearing them anyway, because the woman in Specsavers had said that they looked good on me and I believed her.

I also have my original pair of glasses, which have a minimal frame that is made of hypo allergenic titanium and they were very expensive. Because the frame is so minimal, it makes much less of an impact on my face and it is so lightweight that I hardly notice wearing it.

I had put this last pair of glasses away in their case in the drawer of my nightstand and pretty much forgotten about them until tonight. I got them out and cleaned them up and had a good look at them and saw how nice they really were and what better quality than the glasses I had been wearing.

I stood in front of the mirror and took one pair of glasses off and put the other ones on and couldn't believe the difference. I liked the old pair so much better. My whole face showed up again. I kept them on and have been wearing them since and have put the other glasses away. This is the pair that I really want to wear. So, when I get my eyes checked and it turns out that I need new glasses, I'm going to have them put into this frame and not bother picking out another one.

I instinctively picked out this frame the first time I got glasses. I zoomed in on it and said, "That's the one I want!"  I put it on and was pleased right away. I don't know why I thought it wasn't nice enough anymore. Well yes, I wanted to be  more modern.

So, that's the story on the glasses. Don't be led by fashion. Let your own common sense prevail and your own taste. If you look ridiculous, hopefully somebody will tell you.

Have a good night!

sometimes our instincts are right and some things are just timeless, not old fashion or modern

One of the things I hate buying are glasses. I really need the shop assistant to guide me and tell which one I must buy.

I always wear what I feel looks good on me, if I am comfortable than I know it is the right thing for me. I sure your found glasses look great....:-)Hugs

I have a pair of sunglass frames that I used for years, but not currently. When I need new sunglasses, I'll go back to the old frames. They're more "me" than the updated ones. Trust your instincts!

How did you know I've been spending days with my brother trying to find glasses for him? He's been wearing the same pair for years now and they even have a chip in one corner.

We were trying to get new funky glasses for him because he is doing a show the first weekend in Christmas. The clientele are all wealthy and he is the only artist presenting.

So - not only did I feel he has to present his pottery in a great fashion but he also has to present himself.

We didn't find what he wanted. All the ones that were sort of what we were looking for missed by a little bit. The one pair that were perfect? They didn't come in his size. Bummer.
