So, I had laser eye surgery back in my freshman year of college because my eyesight was so poor that a hand less than 10 inches in front of my face was blurry. Waking up in the morning always induced a slight panic attack (I never wore contacts to bed) since I literally could not see my surroundings until my glasses were found. Contacts just didn’t work out very well for me. I finally couldn’t take it anymore and voila! One minute I was blind as a bat (pretty much literally), the next I was reading signs all the way across the street. But now, alas, my eyesight has been slipping in my right eye rather rapidly for some time now. It’s pretty bad at the moment and I think the time has come for glasses (at least to wear during movies and while reading). I’ve actually been really inspired by all the super cute frames that seem to be cropping up all over fashion campaigns and editorials lately. Which ones do you all like??

“A city of squalls, foggy mornings, intervals of blue and white so immaculate the eyes ached. A city of readers, coffee drinkers, kissers on sidewalks, sad faces at wet windows. A city of umbrellas, woolen scarves, raincoats, cigarettes, wineglasses, cognac.”
-Keith Miller, The Book of Flying
