Banality for a Monday

Posted on

I have taken photos of myself in my new eyeglasses! Regardless of any amount of adjusting I do, my glasses always sit crooked on my face. Either the bones in my nose are uneven, or my ears are misaligned, or every pair of glasses in the universe is flawed. I am not sure which, if any of these things are true.

In any case, if we were to meet, this is more than likely the me you would get:

My glasses are for working on the computer/reading. The only time I walk around anywhere with glasses on, is when I’ve just forgotten to take them off. This happened often when I use to work outside of my house. I’d catch myself in the mirror with the glasses, and it would be all ” Oh, hai!! Glasses!” The one thing that does tip me off to wearing them unnecessarily is eating. Eating with my glasses on makes me straight up sick.

Anyway…I didn’t need new glasses, since my prescription didn’t change, but I’ve had my current pair for more than two years, and I was bored. I ordered 3 new pairs of glasses from Zenni. Not necessary, but fun. I am please with 2 of the 3 I got.

First, my regular BCBG Max Azria glasses that I paid a ton of money for over 2 years ago. Purple.

Next, Zenni glasses in green. The picture doesn’t do them justice, but they are my favorite

Now, Zenni glasses in blue argyle. Different, but good:

Finally, these. They don’t look right:

I think it’s because they are supposed to be worn like this:

In all, I would give Zenni high ratings! I spent less than $30 for all 3 pairs of glasses. And now I can keep a pair in my office, a pair in my purse, and a pair upstairs for reading. I win!

  3. Cute! I'm glad you posted this because I need new glasses and I couldn't remember who it was that sold cute glasses for super cheap prices. Also, my glasses don't sit straight on my face, either, so you're not alone. I hate that one of my ears sits slightly higher than other one!

  5. Ha ha, you crack me up. You look so cute in glasses. Your purple ones are similar to my purple ones…which I love. ๐Ÿ˜€ They are all pretty great, but I like the green ones best.

  9. That last one makes me want to do what you say so you'll stop looking at me like that. I have often tried to cultivate a look like that for use on my children, but so far no go.

  10. LOVE these pics! You made me laugh out loud at the last one–it reminded me of my grumpy old choir teacher! Awesome.

  11. Hello, I know you posted this a while ago, but I really like how your green Zenni glasses look. Do you still know the frame #? I found these http://www.zennioptical.com/261024-plastic-full-rim-frame.html to be quite similar, but wanted to be sure :o) Thanks

  12. Compared with Zenni, i perfer GlassesShop.com. Because it is easy to order prescription eyeglasses on GlassesShop.com, they also have a ton of different styles of frames, colors and even cases to choose from!
