Gorgeous Goggles!

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 21 - 2009

I shamelessly stole this post from the fabulous LionLovingTiger, go check out her blog if you haven’t done so already!

About a year ago I went for an eye test as I realised that I couldn’t read the Sky EPG without squinting.  The optician told me that my eyesight had deteriorated a little and that I wasn’t to drive without sorting myself out with some contacts.  “Contacts, schmontacts” said I, and off I skipped to find myself the baddest face furniture I could lay my grubby little hands on!

I’ve always loved glasses (strange girl that I am) but when my eyesight was 20:20, I could never bring myself to buy a set of frames to put blank lenses in… I’m not quite twattish enough for that kind of nonsense.  So I was actually pretty excited to be buying some specs!

My first pair (and probably still my faves) are these Missoni lovelies.  I think I paid around £50 in the sale for the frames.

My next purchase was lust at first sight, I’d tried these on a few times…loved them, but winced everytime I looked at the price tag – then they became like “SO last season” and disappeared from the shops…. fast forward a few months and I found a girl selling her old pair on eBay.  I very nearly peed myself with excitement when the auction ended and they were mine!

My most recent pair are a Ted Baker offering.  Lurve these, but I haven’t got round to ordering lenses for them yet as I’m still too busy loving my Missoni and Chanels and there’s only so many opportunities to wear them considering I only really need them for driving.

Thanks for indulging me in my shameless showing off of my lovely glasses!  Anyone else sporting gorgeous eyewear?  Show me/Tell me!

  1. I love them all! You look fabulous in them!

    I wear glasses too and have been wearing them since I was 9 for long distance. I’m really naughty though and only wear them for driving and watching TV etc, I would probably wear them more if mine were as gorgeous as yours though!

    It made me laugh when you referred to them as face furniture! I call them bin lids! I’m always loosing them too and constantly asking my fella ”Have you seen my bins?” I must drive him up the wall! lol

    Love your glasses! I always wear contacts as my nose was broken a few times so glasses feel heavy on the bridge if i wear them for too long!

  3. @tackyblueeyeshadow – thank you! I’m so lazy with my glasses too, I should wear ‘em when watching telly – but I’m usually far too ensconced on my fat bum to get up and find them! You’ve just educated me, I’d heard ‘em referred to as ‘bins’ and didn’t know the origin – now I do!

    @Tali – The thought of contacts freaks me out a little, I’d imagine they take some getting used to huh?
