Fashion Crisis: I need new glasses and have no taste. A wrong decision will have to grace my face for a few years. Generally I forget I wear glasses, then, when I see a photo of myself I always think I am looking a bit specky. Because of the specs.
I have been to the optician three times this week. I have tried on probably forty or fifty pairs and I cannot generate much in the way of an opinion. Before it became groundhog day, or I became the Miss Havisham of optics, the optician let me away with four pairs to choose from so I could survey my friends and family.
Reviews have been mixed.
First up, Purple. I wanted purple because of my lilac leather jacket that has been the cornerstone of my wardrobe of late. However, the purple glasses might be a bit ‘young’ for me. And maybe the lilac phase is on the wane. Perhaps Purple’s reign is over.
Next, Cow-Poo Green. I think they are good glasses, but there’s no getting away from the fact that they are the same colour as cow-poo. I don’t know if that’s the look I am going for.
Then there is Teal Teacher. I think the teal is quite sophisticated and a move away from the lilac. But the lens shape is perhaps a little strict and a stickler for correct punctuation… or something…
Lastly we have Pink Plastic. They are the most comfortable and have generated the most love AND hate from the pollsters.
So, purple, teal, green or pink?
The trouble with trying on new glasses is that you can’t actually SEE them. All a bit blurry.
I’ll sleep on it. Hopefully, in the morning, everything will be clear…
