Look, It's Me!

January 22, 2013

You know what stinks about getting older? Things like vision changes. I used to pride myself on my 20/15 vision, because hey...I could be a fighter pilot.

Needless to say, I didn't grow up to be a fighter pilot, and instead I'm a regular worker bee that sits at my computer for 10 hours a day between my 9-5 and my work for Seventeenth & Irving. Since I've been doing that for about 8 years now, my vision is slowly fading.

But the bonus? Glasses are cool and trendy again!

I've recently purchased several frames to suit my mood or outfit, so when GlassesUSA.com asked me to pick out a pair that I liked, I couldn't say no. I have to admit, purchasing a pair of glasses online was a scary idea for someone like me who's "blessed" with a wider face, so I really liked the virtual optician feature that lets you buy glasses by frame measurements. Perfect to find a pair with similar dimensions to eyeglasses you may already own.

I decided to pick a pair that had a little bit of textural interest, so I went with this pair that reminded me of woodgrain. If you're looking for a new pair of prescription glasses, GlassesUSA.com is an excellent resource for an affordable new pair. They're always offering a great discount on top of their already affordable prices. My pair totaled less than $100 for stylish frames with anti-glare coating.
