If I could, I’d be the Carrie Bradshaw of glasses. I’ve worn some form of corrective lens since the age of seven. I went through a few periods where I wore contacts (in middle school you HAD to have contacts, especially the colored ones), but I stopped wearing them in my early 20’s when I had to make an emergency trip to an ophthalmologist for a corneal ulcer.
Anyway… back to glasses. This isn’t really a “haul” post, but more of a collection post which I will be doing here more often. I only own three pairs and I want to collect more. My prescription seems to have stopped getting worse so that’s a good thing. The oldest pair I own are these D&G frames which I got in 2009. I believe they are unisex and I love them so much.
I got this Oscar de la Renta pair (including lenses) for $80 from a site called coastal.com. I don’t know if they have this promotion anymore, but you can get your first pair free and just pay the difference for the cost of the lenses if you need to. If you’re super blind like I am, non-basic lenses cost more but $80 compared to the usual $300+ is not bad at all. This frame is a bit bigger and more of a wrap-around style. I couldn’t resist that scroll pattern on the sides.
Finally, I have these Dolce & Gabbana frames that I absolutely adore. It took me forever to actually purchase something so bold, something definitely out of my comfort zone but I’m glad I did. The frame is huge and not a shape I’ve ever worn before. I wear these daily and get compliments on them all the time.
