Let's Talk About Glasses!

Hiii lovely ladies! I'm sorry for the lack of posting but college has been killing me! I've been feeling kinda of sick so I'm home today (: I wanted to do a quick post, not about cosmetics this time, but more about fashion which is something I LOVE too!

I wear glasses since I was 11 years old. I can't see a thing in front of me, so without them I'm basically blind. 
I always loved wearing glasses, I was never that kind of girl who never wore them because they were embarrassed about it, instead I was really proud of them because for me, I think I looked more fashionable (Yes, at 11 I thought like that) :p

My first glasses were those basic ones (mine were a metallic dark blue) and my mom choose them from me. I like them but I broke them in like two years ahaha So next time I choose the ones I wanted.
I was 13 years old when I bought my first Vogue glasses. Again, they were the basic ones but this time a metallic dark green. I wore those glasses until I was 19 years old and I had to switch them because I broke them and Vogue wasn't doing that style anymore. 

I was heart broken. I thought those glasses were going to be the ones I would wear forever... But they were out of style so I had to move on :p
When I went to the store to buy another glasses I told the sells lady I only wanted Vogue ones. They are my favorite brand of glasses and they last a lot of time!
I had ones in mind that I saw Giselle wearing them before on an Ad. I tried a bunch of them, but I didn't like anything! I mean, I wore basically the same glasses for 7 years EVERYDAY, it was not going to be easy...
But then I found the ones I really fell in love with. They were totally different from my old ones but they looked really fab ehehe

I loved the gold detailing, the simple black look... everything!
It's been two years now, and they are still here! They never broke or wear out and they weren't that expensive at all (: You have to keep in mind that I use them EVERYDAY! I use contacts too whenever I have to use sunglasses or it's raining outside, but the first thing I do when I get home is take off my contacts and wear my glasses!

For me, glasses are a cute fashion accessory if you choose the right ones for you! When picking glasses you have to try it on as much different style as you can and then pick out what looks best with your face shape, skin color and hair color.

I hate those kind of misconception that only geek girls or boys wear glasses. I was always a girly girl and I never mind wearing glasses, I think they look good on me and goes with everything!

So what do you think? Do you wear glasses? And if you do, do you wear them all the time? Let me know which style do you like best (:

I'll do a sunglasses post as well... Because I Loveeeee glasses :P

Another thing that I have to post about, tomorrow Brigitte Bradot will be 76 years old. As you all know she's my greatest inspiration in life.
She was a revolutionary women with gorgeous unique looks and bold style. She made me aware of how bad some animals are treated and made me a vegetarian and an activist towards animal rights (:

Happy Birthday BB <3

Ahhh, you're right. The glasses post! Love these. I wear them too but they are hard to photograph for me because mine aren't non-reflective. I will have to try again soon. I think they are becoming a fashion statement, I keep seeing "fake glasses" at the shops. I would never consider lasik eye surgery though because I love them so much. Yours are so great!!

I'm practically blind without contacts or glasses, just like you. I wear contacts almost all the time, because I hate wearing glasses. I might get laser surgery one day to get rid of them for good.
BTW, love the Vogue Portugal cover. Animal prints are totally my thing ;).

Marisa said...

I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who loves wearing glasses (:
@steph- I have to try the animal prints.. I think it can be too bold for me ehehe
