The Tresstastic: Glam Glasses and Pink Lippy

Screen shot 2011-12-28 at 02.37.31

There are 3 things that standout for me with this pic. Firstly is that gorgeous lip colour (I Want. I Want. I Want.), secondly the simple but very chic hair do and thirdly, I just love those glasses…

You know I always wanted to wear glasses, not have bad eyesight mind you but to wear glasses. I think it was that experience of going to the opticians with my family and trying on all the frames only to leave empty handed whilst my sister sported a new pair of frames…

In fact, if I were on the therapists couch right now I would declare that that very experiences of trying but not buying prompted me to go to the extreme of trying and buying wherever possible… No wonder I’m such a shopping enthusiast. I know, it’s a sad story, I’ll give Jeremy Kyle a ring in a sec.

But truly I love glasses, seriously love them. I was seeing a guy not to long ago who said he needed to get his eyes tested. I actually had to contain my excitement at the thought of him in a nice pair of frames. Then a while later I had to contain my disappointment when it turned out he had 20:20 vision. *Sigh* The things I share…

PS: Thanks to @BlackNerdGirls for letting me know this pic is from the fab Arise magazine :) x

    OMG! This post totally describes me. I was just talking to my friends about how I wanted to have less than perfect vision so that I can rock lenses without feeling like a fraud. Ha Ha Ha! Great post!! :)

        I am exactly the same – stems from my best friend getting tortoiseshell National Health glasses when I was in primary school… wore fraud frames when I got older… Had my eyes tested last year and was mad disappointed to have 20/20 vision!
