My closet is a graveyard for neglected glasses frames that will never dress my eyes again. I had gone through at least 5 pairs of glasses before I hit middle school. I think my mother was grateful I didn't need them in middle school but by college, I found I needed them again. The pair I wanted were too expensive so I was stuck getting some that didn't fit my head very well because they were the less expensive choice. Two years ago, I got the two for one special, but of course only a select few were on that special, none of which fit me at all, but all I could afford.
Last year a friend told me she had gotten a pair of online glasses, so I looked at Coastal.com and got a deal on a pair of Vera Wang gunmetal frames, but unfortunately they sit very low on my face (the downside sometimes to doing online shopping for glasses--you don't get to see what you look like in them). Then Warby Parker frames. They send you free pairs to try on and then you can make your decision. Great idea, but I couldn't afford them! The pursuit continued.
I just found a website where I can do a virtual look of what the glasses look like on me. I've been having way too much fun with this thing.
So far I have narrowed it down to these three:
I like the one on the top left...ooo and the last one too. I want something classic, but fun and that will go with what I like to wear. What say all of you?

Sweater-Girls Night Swap Shop
Sunday, February 24, 2013
I am not a huge fan of color coordinating an outfit so that my shoes match my purse or the little flecks of blue in my blouse. It seems too calculated and time consuming. My mother spent weeks trying to find matching shoes to a gown she was wearing to a debutante ball she was invited to and even argued with me over my suggestion with going with a silver shoe because she said the colors wouldn't match (she had yet to try the combo). To me I find, you put yourself in a box. But I do so much love monochromatic outfits especially in blacks and neutrals, but I wanted to see how well it worked with other more saturated colors. Its one of those things where you don't have to put so much time in thinking about what matches because its all in the same family. I like to break it up with a different color shoe (for some reason it always feels like too much whenever the shoe matches everything else.

Rules to follow when getting there:
1. Arrive early. There will be quite a few people showing up and it gets crazy fast.
2. Everything is separated by article, not by size. This means you may have to dig through stuff. If you find something that looks like it might be your size grab it and try it on after you've finished sifting through everything.
3. Go in there with an idea of what you are looking for. Just browsing until you find something you like will get you no where really. Its ok to grab something you weren't necessarily looking for but like, but it is easy to walk away with stuff you really did not need and do not work at all with anything you already have in your closet.
Pretty easy. Hope to see you there!

I loved the move "Fantastic Mr. Fox". I love foxes in general. I rooted for the fox in the Gingerbread Man story. Tasty little ginger. Fox and the Hound. Foxtrot. Foxy Ryan Gosling...focus. Anyway, I love this little woodland creature. Question of the day:
If you could feel sorry for any villainous character from a childhood story, who would it be and why? *Best answer wins this one.

You have been given the opportunity to travel and see your dream destination with two weeks vacation time. Your choices for transportation are by airplane or by boat. If you take an airplane, you will have two weeks to explore ONLY your dream destination. If you take a boat, you will stop at different ports along the way for 13 out of the 14 days, but you will only have one day to explore your dream destination spot. Which one do you take?
