Its All Just A Blur To Me

After Grace was born, I realized that more changed with pregnancy than just my formerly okay waistline. My eyes were crap! So I went to the eye doctor and got glasses. And 2 1/2 years later, those glasses have been lost for at least a year and I havent been back to the eye doctor since.

I refused.

But today, I can no longer refuse. I cant see crap! Sersiously, I feel like an old lady squinting at my computer screen all day long. And god forbid I want to read small print on anything. Its just not worth all the squinting and rearrangement of my eyes to read that stuff anymore.

And so, this weekend, I will go to the eye doctor and on Monday morning, I will wear my new accessory (read: glasses) to the office.

Hubby laughs but seriosuly, how do I pick a pair out? A very important question I think. They say the figure out your face shape and then look for glasses that way. Okay, but I have never been able to figure that out. Heart? Oval? Square? I have no clue. Do you?

And then there is the question of style/color? Metal frames? Okay.......silver or gold or do I go rimless? Or what about the super-cute tortoise shell frames?

Seriously, this is really hard for me.

Any advice!?!?!?

I have these: http://www.lenscrafters.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product|-1|11151|10051|10539|10518|brands|WomensFrames|12001

But I like big chunky glasses - I think they define cheekbones better. I LOVE them. Before these I had a black burberry pair - they had the burberry plaid on the inside - so cute!

Oh and I like them because when you wear super stylized glasses it looks like you're making a statement instead of just wearing glasses. You look like you're stylish even rolling out of bed - because only true fashionistas can pull off this style of frame :P In my humble opinion of course:)

Want some non-style based advice?

You have a two year old...go for the most indestructible pair that you can find, and hope that you can stomach their stylishness.

Trust me, I'm very clumsy, it's almost the same as having a child when it comes to the shelf life of expensive personal items.

What a cute blog. I enjoyed reading it today. I stumbled upon it through one link leading to another link etc. Good luck picking out a pair. I always hate finding the right glasses. Yuck.
