31 days: comfortable in your own skin

Over the last 10 years I have learned to accept and even love my glasses as a part of who I am.

I had to start wearing prescription eyeglasses full time my freshman year in college. They quickly became a part of me and my personality. I decided if I was going to have to wear them 15 plus hours a day I should have a pair that expressed my personality. 

Hello thicker glasses frames.  I picked out a pair of plastic framed glasses and have never looked back. {I've been through 7 or 8 different frames in 11 years}

I wanted to make my eyeglasses an fashionable accessory I always had on. They became a part of my style. I was know as the spunky gal who wore glasses. I rocked glasses before rocking glasses was cool. I was light years ahead of the trend, wink wink.

Trying to figure out the style and shape of frame that is flattering to your face can be a bit daunting. GlassesUSA.com has made it super easy to figure out what works best for your.  Their Virtual Mirror feature allows you to upload a pic or take one with your webcam and try on glasses virtually. You can very quickly see which shape is best for you. 

I played around with the virtual mirror feature and was quickly reminded I need either a more rectangular or cat eye shape. The large roundish geeky college style frames just do not look good on me, no matter how hard I try.

Your glasses definitely fit you! I've had contacts since 7th grade (after three tormented years of terrible glasses). But I'm really considering switching back to glasses full time and am searching for the perfect pair!

Yay for glasses! I love your pair...they are perfect for your face shape and style. I've had glasses since kindergarten (!!!) so they are totally a part of my face at this point. :)
