Clark Kent IRL

We geeks have known something for a while: Glasses are awesome. They can make you look smart, make you look mysterious, make you look like a superhero in disguise, and above all, they can help you SEE. I’ve always wanted glasses and was thrilled when all of my reading and computering meant I needed to get some basic reading glasses. As I get older (and with both of my parents needing glasses), it’s likely that I’ll get to move onto some full-time eyewear, and I can’t wait. The right pair of glasses can frame your face, help your eyes stand out, and complete any outfit. I see myself having a row of glasses like some people have watches, picking the right one for the right day.

Like these purple and gold ones! Love ‘em!

I’ve recently been introduced to VSP Direct, a super-inexpensive individual vision insurance plan, and am psyched to see that I can continue with my yearly check-ups without spending tons of money out of pocket (my health insurance doesn’t currently cover vision). And when the day comes where I get to pick out some frames of my own, VSP has an allowance for the trendy eyewear I want to get. Plus, they’re currently running a Pinterest contest with Nine West eyewear: winners can receive a year of free vision insurance AND Nine West giftcards. Sweet! You can check out VSP here.

So in the meantime, I’ll just keep trying on frames whenever I get the chance (and rocking my “Kitten with glasses” top)  and going to my yearly check-up. Who knows, I could be rocking these looks permanently in the near future!

Do you wear glasses? What do you love about them? What frame shape/color works best for you?
