Random fact about me: I wear contacts on a day-to-day basis as I have horrible eye sight. I've been meaning to get a new pair of eyeglasses for some time now as it's not very healthy to wear contacts all day everyday - you need to let them puppies breathe. There is something about wearing glasses that makes me feel more grown up and even slightly sophisticated. Even though I actually need prescriptive glasses to function, I definitely view them as a fun fashion accessory that can really add to your overall look - whether you need them or not.
I've sorta fallen in love with Clearly.ca as they have so many glasses and sunglasses to choose from, they're always on trend and their prices can't be beat! I mean these frames are only $95 - talk about a steal! Has anyone else been obsessing over tortoise frames lately? These grey frames are neutral enough to match everything and the tortoise design almost mimics the ever-so-popular marbled look.
I styled my glasses with my current favourite top from Mad Monkey Clothing. I've never seen anything like it with it's high-lo cut and peek-a-boo midriff. It went perfectly with my favourite trench, some black high-waist jeans and my peep toe booties. Oh and can I pass on a little styling secret? Rather purchasing a skinny scarf to complete my look, I used one of my belts from my trench coat as my finishing accessory. Yay for style hacks!
Do you ever wear glasses as a fashion accessory? Are they prescriptive or just for fun?
