I Feel Like a Beatnik

After nearly a year of having bent, broken, and/or duct-taped glasses, I finally got a new pair. Now you're either going to love them like I do or think I'm nuts. Yes, they're loud, but the girl at the store talked me into getting them. They were initially my favorite, but I chose another pair that weren't quite as cooky. She told me I should get the black and white ones instead because the shape of the ones I picked out wasn't right for my face. I really liked her. I appreciated her giving me her opinion, and because she'd worked there for 10 years, I figured she knew what she was talking about.

This one's for you, Mary. I think new glasses, as well as new hairdos require a kiss-face pose. And no, that's not a mole on my chin. it's chocolate. From making these.

i love'em. I just got new ones. They're fabulously red. The sides have bezeled rhinestones {which I'm not too crazy about} and swirls.

But those ones are violet and mine are red.

anyways, if I would have had the option of yours, I would have bought them, too!

I think they're the coolest glasses ever, and I am so jealous that I don't need new ones. I love the wider ear pieces.

I think they are adorable- and especially on YOU. You do have just the right face and look for them. Enjoy!

I love that you had chocolate on your chin and didn't realize it. That must have been some good cookie. And the glasses are pretty hot, too.

They're not to loud... they're just right... and awaiting a small child to rip them off your face to try them on!

Sarah said...

How cute Natalie! They look so nice on you I really like them. The kiss face pose is great plus you have to show off the new specs right.

I love them! And I'm glad you got them too! I think our first reaction to things we see and love, is what we should go with... rather than the 'safe' alternative.

I think our true selves shine through when we go for things that catch our eye, even if they are a bit cooky. I love cooky!
:D

I LOVE THEM! And they remind me of my "Asian goggles" with a butterfly on the side. :)
