The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Not even I believe I just titled this post “New Bifocals”…this is style blogging?
Well, it kinda really is, if you’re kissing 50 years of age, blind as a bat, and should have been wearing bifocals 10 years ago, but were so vain you’d wear contacts that didn’t quite correct your astigmatism, buy loads and loads of reading glasses to wear with them, and sometimes wear the reading glasses over your old prescription glasses.
Yep, the old double glasses look. But only at home.
Where the family laughed their asses off every time I got busted doing it.
But y’all, I’m tired. I look at documents all day, terribly interesting documents from other countries to be sure, and bifocals give me perfect vision, even for the teeniest print. I’m not too keen on the better view of my wrinkles, but I do like not having computer monitors positioned six inches from my nose.
When I went to the eye doctor this last time, I begged, “Help me find a pair of bifocals I can wear all the time. Because I suck at picking out glasses frames.”
I have never liked a single pair of glasses I’ve picked out in my life, and there’s been a lot of wishful glasses. But these frames, they might be the ones, guys. And I finally own something designed by Kate Spade.
Now, how to keep the flash from bouncing off the lenses. Anyone? I know, go outside. But it’s cold and wet out there.
P.S. This beautiful plaid skirt from GoodWill ($3.75) has a bum zipper! I was so bummed by this discovery I thought I’d just toss it, but I got so many compliments today, and I loved the photos (except for the glare on the glasses), that I’m going to fix it. Maybe myself. Because I can.
