After a long and largely fruitless search for new glasses, I finally have a pair that I like! I searched every optical outlet in Wester to discover that a.) all glasses frames in Wester are boring/square; and b.) frames even a little outside of average? Really, really expensive.
I prefer cat-eye glasses, which are harder to find than one would think. Thank goodness for the internet! Though really, they weren't easy to find there either. But I persevered! Eventually, I found an eBay store that had just what I wanted. In lots of colors! With rhinestones! Squee!
Actually, I ended up with optical quality readers. Such a deal! They were $25 a pair. Then I just took them into LensCrafters and had them put prescription lenses in. That was not particularly cheap (their 2-for-1 deals only apply to frames and lenses). I probably could have gotten a better deal if I had shopped around, but I was DONE with my old glasses and just wanted to get into the new ones as soon as possible
What do you think? (Please ignore the dermatology-appointment-closeness of my un-made-up face. Also, I do actually have eyelashes, I just look like a radiation victim without mascara.)
