Seeing Stones

We ladies of habit are also nerds, and thus we deal with our eye degeneration the old fashioned way: glasses. One of my greatest ambitions is to own more than one pair of glasses at the same time, thus achieving adult-level accessorizing potential.

My last glasses were pretty good: vintage Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses with normal lenses in them.

But I like my feminine Bonlook frames even more with my butch haircut:

Because almost all Warby Parker glasses look like poop on me, I think I might try my hand at another Bonlook pair:

This “Jack and Norma” frame has the added benefit of meeting my Ingrid Michaelson fantasy.

These also seem to follow the tried and true logic of my last frames: bigger is better. I can’t ever go back to small glasses. Stop trying to pretend you aren’t putting something on your face. This is an opportunity to put a GIANT thing on your face.

Also, as Kerry (a friend of the blog) recently pointed out. Bonlook/Warbyparker glasses cost $100. That is the amount of money we spend on shoes we never wear, ergo we should stop buying shoes and start buying more glasses!

-D.

P.S. Sorry for my long absence. Was on a very ladies of habit-y women’s writing retreat and a mother daughter vacation.
