That one time that I lied to get glasses. | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

That one time that I lied to get glasses.








glasses: c/o firmoo skirt: romwe shirt: H&M

Sooo when I was in 2nd grade I thought glasses were just THE coolest things. (kinda like how when I was a freshman in high school I only liked a boy if he had braces...I know, what??) Anyways, my mom took us into the eye doctor to get our eyes checked and blah blah blah. I wanted glasses SO BAD but I also didn't need glasses because I can see just fine. 

As my brothers were getting their eyes checked I knew I had to cook up a plan to get myself some sweet frames of my own. When it was finally my turn and I had to read letters on that chart, I "messed up" like 4 letters hoping that would dub me a glasses needing person. I think I even said the correct letter on one and then quickly changed my answer to something else because I didn't want my cover blown. AND GUESS WHAT! I qualified for reading classes! haha so I picked out the cutest frames ever (and when I say cute, please remember that I was in 2nd grade and I also thought my pink overalls were cute) I remember they had purple and pink on the handles and I picked a red and blue case for them. yikes. But I was so stoked to wear them during reading time and look all cool with my new glasses.

Firmoo basically made my dreams come true when they gave me this pair to wear! The second they came in the mail I ripped open the package and begged J to come take pictures because I am kind of obsessed with them. I'm really impressed with the quality! It seems like usually if glasses are just for looks, they aren't made very well  but these will actually last me forever, yay! I picked the tortoise shell ones because I'm always picking safe stuff that matches everything (like black frames) but I am in loveee with the tortoise and so glad I picked that style! They also make prescription glasses which I sadly don't qualify for (am I weird that I still kinda wish I needed glasses?)

Happy FRIDAY!!

  3. OMG please stop wishing you need glasses! They are seriously such a pain in the ass. I am a contacts wearer and it suuuucks. I can't even shower without some sort of corrective eyewear!
    But these looks so good on you and I love your whole outfit!

  4. I had the opposite problem--I tried lying and looking out my right eye to read what my left eye was supposed to read and ended up getting glasses with huge lenses that I hated lol

  5. Omg you're hilarious. I remember cheating on a spelling test once in second grade...I wrote down the word "stop" on a small piece of paper and put it under my leg. Kids are so sneaky! But really, do not ever wish you had glasses. I've worn glasses since third grade, and it's not ever fun to wake up in the morning and not be able to see what time it is, haha. (or I could think of a million other examples) But you rock those ones well!

  6. First things first, you're the cutest and I adore this outfit. I too always coveted glasses wearers and ALWAYS wanted a pair of my own! Funny how having great vision becomes a curse! These days, I just wear non-prescriptions when I wanna be a little hipster ;)

  7. Well you look adorable wearing glasses! :) I am a glasses wearer myself and have multiple pair, all different styles and colors, because they are an awesome accessory. I had never heard of Firmoo, so thanks for sharing! {Also, before I needed glasses, I remember being in second grade buying fashion glasses from Claire's!}

  8. I love that you lied to get glasses. It is the complete opposite of what I did. I lied to get out of wearing my glasses in the 2nd grade. Aren't 2nd graders opinions of what they want funny?!

  10. I was totally in the same boat and wanted to wear glasses when I was younger! I actually prefer when my husband wears his glasses over contacts! Love the ones you picked! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  11. Love the new glasses, reading or not, they look great. I got some new glasses too! Mine are oliver in whiskey tortoise for Warby Parker.

    Although I have gotten used to wearing contacts and glasses, it'd be a lot easier and cheaper to live without them.

  14. So if you are also experiencing a similar problem, don't stress too much, the inconvenience will go away in no time after you procure a new pair of eye glasses in Bedford. You just need to give your eyes and mind a little time to get used to it. And you will get accustomed to the glasses in no time at all. Prescription glasses
