I think I have a problem. I love trying on glasses and never buying them. This will be my third round of the Warby Parker at home try-ons and I have so much fun and send them back only to find more styles again and the cycle continues. It's really gotten out of hand. But as a person who solely wears glasses this is the struggle I endure. Hashtag//thestruggleisreal
Alas, I did the same thing again because I can't help myself, but decided I wanted all black frames this time. What usually does me in is I'll get 3 black frames, 1 crazy color, like yellow or red, and one tortoiseshell pair that I absolutely fall in love with. Happens every time. Also I already OWN a tortoiseshell pair so I mean come on!
So I stuck to my guns and ordered all black. My whole life I've been wearing square-ish frames because apparently my face shape is a mystery to me and this is what works. I ordered a little more round frames on the last one and of course that's the one I adore. Naturally.
Take a look for yourself.
I have ordered the Zagg and the Roosevelt before but keep coming back to them as if they'll be different the next go-round*. I don't hate them but I don't love them - though I feel like a very serious designer in the Roosevelt every time. Why do I keep ordering them? Gah! The Catalina is very much like the glasses I own now but the frames are wider and a tad daintier, which I like. But... then there's the Duckworth. I feel like a sexy librarian in the Duckworth, which is my ultimate goal in life - in both profession and attitude. Just sayin.
Maybe eventually I'll order a pair or two and quit bothering everyone. Maybe.
*I realize I just said the phrase "go-round." I've been watching a LOT... a LOT of Sherlock. Not that I'm ashamed I just find myself using certain phrases... and talking in a British accent for approximately 30 minutes after I've finished an episode.
