Since I wear my pair of prescription eyeglasses all the time, I consider them as the most important accessory I own. Hence, it is very important that I wear glasses that I actually love; a pair that reflects my taste of style. If you wear prescription glasses, I am sure you know that a very good pair of frames is quite pricey. It may seem expensive at first, but it actually turns out to be an excellent investment once you consider other factors such as the number of wears, effect on appearance and level of comfort. Think about it, you will probably wear them every day for several years, so if you distribute the cost over the entire period of use, it’s really not that bad. That is why I put preference first when selecting my frames. This is one of the few areas where I completely disregard my bargaining principle :).

My eyes have gotten very sensitive to the sun, so I decided to get a new pair with Marc Jacobs frames and transitions (Photochromic) lenses even though I have had my other pair for just a few months. I am very thankful I ended up getting these as a present, so I got to keep my keep my other pair intact, instead of using their frames on the new lenses. These lenses are so cool; they are clear indoors and they darken outdoors upon exposure to the sun.

I love both pairs. The purple frames are by Michael Kors; I am a big fan of his designs and these suit my face well. The new brown frames are by Marc Jacobs. I own a pair of sunglasses by him that I really love, so that inspired me to try several of his designs and I fell in love with these.

The dress is my first purchase from Athropoligie; I recently got it off their clearance rack for $29, down from over $100.

Hope you are having a great week. Thanks for visiting!
