Few things are more exciting than a new pair of glasses–when they’re glam ones, Jim and I refer to them as Glamsses. For me, they’re an accessory. Most of the time I rock my contact lenses, but there are certain occassions and outfits, even, that call for a more serious, more sophisticated look. I frequently don spectacles when I work at my financial writing gig. If you want to intimidate someone who’s irritating you at the office? Simply drop the phrase “value proposition” look disturbed a lot and DEFINITELY show up bespectacled. Works every time.
Next week I’m going to LensCrafters (my longtime glasses savior since I moved to Manhattan nine years ago) to get some new ones to switch off with the black Prada frames I purchased a couple years ago there. I’ll be experiencing at the store a complete eye exam, consultation and complimentary set of frames and lenses. I’m thinking tortoise shell, as I’m inspired by Bobbi Brown’s new amazing Tortoise Shell limited edtion collection (more to come on that soon).
Are you a glasses wearer? Tell me about your latest pair! INSPIRE a gal!

I just treated myself to this pair of versace glasses at lenscrafters! I’ve been really pleased with their selection 🙂
I love wearing lasses to match my outfits but couldn’t afford to buy them at places like Lenscrafters. I started using http://www.eyebuydirect.com and http://www.zennioptical.com. I can get great shades dirt cheap and to match every outfit! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my tortoise shell ones. They go well with my auburn hair. Have brown and black ones too!
