Bold New Look.

4 years ago when I went from contacts back to glasses because my aging eyes could no longer read through my contacts that corrected for astigmatism and nearsightedness, I wanted glasses that didn't show up at all. I had been without glasses on my face for several years and just wasn't used to the look of myself in glasses. So I bought these:




I.liked.them.a.lot. So much so that two years ago when it was time for new glasses, I stuck with the same style.

Now, it's time for new glasses. I'm tired of feeling frumpy and invisible in a lot of ways, so I decided to go with a much bolder look:

The difference is much more visible on my face, but I'm just not up to taking a picture of myself today, so if you know me IRL, you'll just have to wait till you see me. If you just know me through this blog, you'll have to take my word for it... this is a big change. Another part of "The Woman I Want to Be."

I followed the very same eye wear trajectory....contacts, clear frame, now bold frame. Hope you enjoy your bold new look!

I liked seeing the new frames, but you were never invisible to me :)

when are we not redefining ourselves? only when we are resisting life. I should know.

anyway, I saw you like Nanci Griffith. My life has flowed in to jazz, but I still listen to her from time to time.
