My glasses: much loved, much worn ...
Over the years I have really collected a lot of glasses which I change according to what I wear (and according to how I feel, of course). My latest model is featured in the blog cover pic above and takes center stage in the collage below.
As time goes by the frames have increased in size again. You can see this exemplified by the biiiiiig Mickey-Mouse frame (2nd row, left) and the crazy pink & olive camouflage frame right below (3rd row left).
I definitely have favourites, though, thoses glasses I come back to time and again. The love for the red ones (1st row, center) has somehow cooled recently and the crazy camouflage ones are just too crazy to wear much! More about the individual favourites below.
The number one favourite are the black ones. They have been worn so much that they recently needed to get a new prescription! They are just the right size, fit perfectly well, are outspoken but not too much of a statement - I still love them after all these years (have to check how long I have had them!).
Second coolest are the black & pink ones. They've got a lot of wear in summer as well as in winter. The bicolor style is just great fun and I've got enough clothes to match that color scheme somehow.
Number three in line: I recently fell back in love with the granny glasses, no really, they are my Diane Keaton "Annie Hall" look-a-likes. They fit really well, are a bit softer in style than the above two, but when wearing them I have to watch out that I don't end up looking too "normal" and style the rest accordingly.
And the joker: These turquoise one also get a lot of wear. They look a bit darker than they really are in this picture and I tend to wear them a lot in the summer when they seem to go with a lot of items in the wardrobe or contrast those nicely.
The most recent addition to the collection
... and these I just go yesterday. In these social distancing days of Covid_19 the opticians haven't been open and I dared to order glasses from the internet for the first time. Had seen so much advertising from a firm call CHARLIE TEMPLE in the last few months, so I finally succumbed.
It was quite easy, really. I just needed to have my prescription on hand and transfer all those different values diligently, pick my frame ... and send the order off. It was ready in less than a week, with some slight delay due to courier problems (deliveries have been late the last few weeks as everyone seems to be doing mail order, which of course is no suprise in these times). And the cost were very reasonable: €115 all in! And they fit ... and I can see well ... and I love the style!
