My new Chanel glasses!!
I’ve been half-blind since I was teenager. I got my first pair of glasses when I was in the 7th grade. Freaking horrific. I remember first being exposed to my blindness when my dad asked me to read the license plate on the car in front of us. I couldn’t read it. Ouch! That meant a trip to the eye doctor. That shit ruined me. What an embarrassing discovery to find out that I couldn’t see shit. To make matters worse, contacts were out of the question. It was glasses for this girl.
I think it was during my senior year of high school that I was finally allowed to get contacts … or maybe it was my freshman year of college. Whenever it was, I was in with the contacts and wasn’t planning on ever looking back. I always owned a pair of glasses but no real human ever got to see them. I only wore them on before bed. My nerdiness was my own dirty secret.
Well now at almost 30 years old, I have decided that I could face my fears and wear glasses in public. First order of business was a new pair of glasses. My nighttime nerd glasses broke last night so today was the perfect day to face my fears.
I went to an eyeglasses boutique on Melrose and tried on pair after pair. I finally decided on a great pair of Chanel glasses. They are the perfect combination of nerdy chic. I love them. I think I will be spending a lot more time in my glasses.
