Miss Sassy Glasses!

I love eyeglasses.  I love cute frames, I actually like going to the eye dr., and I really don't mind wearing glasses at work all day. When Nicole Miller, Kate Spade, Coach, bebe, and Guess design frames, It's easy to make the most out of my increasingly-crappy-do-to-computer-use eyesight! I've been wearing bebe's Irresistible frames in turquoise for the past year, and I love them to death!  At my appointment this past week, I found out that my prescription hasn't changed, but I went ahead and chose another rockin' pair of frames so I can switch back and forth.  I picked out no less than a dozen frames to try on, and finally narrowed my choice down to two:
bebe "Caliente" in Chili

Nicole Miller "Bungalow" in Cocoa/Lime

Which one did I choose?  Since my hairdresser is turning me into a fiery redhead later this fall, I went with CALIENTE, of course!  It takes 7-10 business days to fit them w/my prescription, so I'm tapping my foot impatiently until mid-September! 

I think eyeglasses are classy and cool.  These celebrities think so, too:
Jennifer Love Hewitt, Megan Fox

Johnny Depp, Tina Fey

Miss Pray, Eat, Love, Wear Cute Glasses

Who could forget Gisele, in Devil Wears Prada?

Even Lil' Wayne sports eyeglasses! Call me crazy, but it softens his look up a lot.
And that sweater?  i want one.

The award for "best looking male in eyeglasses" goes to:
Larry Fitzgerald, Wide Receiver for the Arizona Cardinals!
Even my husband is a fan of his frames!

Eyeglasses are totally sexy and classy.  Do you wear them? 
Share your likes and dislikes - and if you're into designer frames, please - I'm all ears!
(or... eyes, since I won't be hearing what you say!)

I love picking out glasses anxd love that you can use them as a fashion statement. I dont wear my glasses as often as I should. I have JLO glasses :)

Ever since I was young I was wishing to wear glasses and imagine my 'glee-ness' {I know that's not a word} when I found out that I had to wear glasses. I was happy, my mother looked at me like I was nuts. I've had just plain ones for years and I get to pick new glasses in December and I chose these GORGE Chanel two-tone glasses. They're black and tortoise.

I've been wearing glasses since I was in the 2nd grade. I went from the HUGE round frames to what I have now.. small and frameless! ha!

I love the cute/funky/chunky frames and I'd really like to get a pair like that next :-)

Can't wait to see what you look like in your new specks!

I love glasses! I wear contacts, but I have glasses too. Even though I don't wear them often, I have to make sure they're cute! I'm in dire need of a new pair. The pair you picked out is great!

Kerri said...

I've never worn glasses or contacts...but I also haven't been to the eye doctor in years! I probably should make an appointment. I love the pair you picked cute!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I don't wear glasses so this is one accessory I don't have to worry about! Those are all cute frames though!

I wear glasses too! The first pair is my favorite :)

I totally agree, glasses can look so sophisticated and classy! I don't wear them but I did buy readers just so I could wear

Thanks for stopping by! I've never had crabcakes before, but I remember when my dad had one; we were on a cruise and the waiter asked him if he wanted a "crabcake" and he said "yes", we were shocked because he hates seafood but we didn't say anything. The waiter brought it and he bit into it and said "what kind of CUPcake is this?" LOL! Sorry, I just had to share that.

My Labor Day weekend last through Tuesday! I hope you have a nice long weekend as well :)

I've been wearing glasses since I was 8 years old. I love glasses until I have to wear them for any length of I usually wear contacts. BUT since I am having trouble reading and I REFUSE to get bifocals at age 32...I will be sporting some super cute reading glasses soon.

Heather said...

Even though I only have to wear them driving, I love my glasses!

Roxy said...

I actually just got glasses and I love them.

Ashley said...

I wear contacts, but I have a pair of glasses that I wear at night before I go to bed or when I'm having allergy issues and can't wear the contacts. I got them in 8th grade and have never changed the prescription! I can't really see out of them at all! Sure can't drive with them on! :)

Thanks for tagging me in the q&a! I love doing stuff like that! I posted my answers today!

Love the frames you picked. Last time I got glasses, they were BOGO, so I got a pair of Michael Kors and a pair of Coach. One black, one brown.

Found you over at Amanda's blog!

Katie said...

I heart eye glasses too! I can also dig anything Tina Fey for that matter... such a fan!

Jessica said...

I actually love eye glasses, too! I don't need them for perscription purposes, but if I had the guts, I would totally wear them for the looks!

Katie @ Left Hand Reviews said...

LOVE this post!! I am an avid eyewear fan myself. I don't care if they are designer or knockoff or anything in between - if they are cute, I want them! In a perfect world, I would have zillions of pairs!
