When I was in fifth grade I remember getting glasses, as my far sight was really weak and I had a hard time seeing in school. I was so embarrassed when I received my first pair of glasses that I didn’t really wear them in school, I would instead hide them in their grey pouch case until a teacher fussed at me to put them on. While I don’t think any of the other students really payed a lot of attention to me wearing them I already had a lot of self confidence issues and I thought glasses only added to it.
Enter into middle school and my issues seemed to be worse. I refused to wear glasses and blamed it on “my glasses are old and they don’t help me see anyway” excuse to my teachers, which was true as my eyes were just getting weaker and I needed a new glasses prescription. Enter into eighth grade and I finally got contacts. GOODBYE glasses! or so I thought.
As I entered my college days I began being more self sufficient, working for my way to saving for my first car, paying insurances, gas and college text books and then I needed more glasses and contacts. But as a college student I couldn’t justify getting glasses as I still felt insecure in them so I didn’t get any new ones with a new prescription til I actually met my husband and would you believe it he wore glasses as well as contacts and almost forced me to get new glasses and wear them, even if only at night a few hours before bed. I succumbed and did just that and I have never looked back. I love wearing glasses now!
In fact as a mom now there are days where I just want to wear glasses out and about, to the store, church, for a coffee run or just all day in general, plus they are a great back up when contacts are on order. I honestly don’t know how I survived without glasses ages ago.
I was recently contacted by Firmoo again (see last collaboration here) to style another pair of glasses of my choosing. This time around I had a hard time figuring out what glasses to get as I wanted to go bold and try some cat eye looks. I wondered if the cat eye frames would even look good on me so I uploaded a picture of myself in the “Try On” button at the top toolbar of the selected glasses screen and after I uploaded my own face from my computer I found that the “cat eye” frames were not me at all. I tried this “try on” feature with several glasses and did not have a fit with any of them until this pair you see on me today. Putting in my prescription for these glasses and checking out was easy breezy and next thing I know days later they are in my mailbox.
To be honest, these glasses are lovely in colors and shape, but I feel they are a bit bulky on me. My husband assured me that with some closet play around I am sure to find a few outfits these glasses would compliment well, so I will take his word for it and see what outfits these babies will work better with. No worries on the self-confidence issues though, I know I can make these work as I just love them but just not with this outfit I guess.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the prescription and fit of the glasses as well as my past glasses from Firmoo.
