Why I Love Wearing Glasses, A Confession

I have worn glasses since I was 12 years old.  Now, we are not talking the chic, sophisticated 12 years old that I know you were.  What I am referring to is an awkward trying-to-be-cool-but-clueless kid who was lost in a sea of plastic frames and photo-grey options.  Not to mention the unicorn sweater and sparkle jeans circa 1983, and feathered hair.  I had not discovered perms yet.
However, things have changed a little since then.  That awkward 12 year old is now 41 and not to brag, but I must say I have much better taste in eyeglasses.  I used to wear contacts, but for whatever reason, my body has rejected them and must prefer glasses after all.  And I am ok with that, I like wearing them, they make life easier!
I always order glasses at the same place.  My sister Kim, who is a French teacher, and I adore, has been much braver than I regarding this and ventured into the online shopping option, loves it.
Check out these smokin’ specs that I found on GlassesUSA.com, I am having a hard time deciding but I think this is my new pair, I can feel it.  Do you think they would look good on me? I love them so I feel like you agree already.

This is my first adventure getting online eyeglasses, and I am so excited to get them.  And, here is the best part!! As a twelveOeight reader you have some discount love coming your way:
