Banality for a Monday

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!

Have I mentioned how much I adore you? I LOVE that first pic of you. It makes me want to ask you to do lunch or something.

I like all pair, even the ones you aren't crazy about. Zenni rules!!

Love! And your scowly librarian picture! I love it to squishy bits.

Adorable. :)

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!

You're so cute! I love the scowly photo as well.

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

SO FUN! I think you are absolutely right about that last pair, and I love that picture of you.

My glasses never sit right, either, even when adjusted at the eyedoctor's office.

Yay for fun new glasses =)! That last picture totally made me think of Super Nanny; have you been holding out on us ;-)?

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.

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