the old, the new

My original (and very much loved) Warby Parkers:

My new Warby Parkers (BB – they arrived!):


I’m unsure. I don’t think they’re actually geeky ENOUGH. Also, I’m a little worried I look like Mr Potato Head in Toy Story Something when he’s crunching numbers.

 

Chef said: Yeah. They look good.

Felix said: They look like nerd glasses. They suit you.

Grover: A-HA. YOU LOOK WEIRD.

Jasper: WHAT ARE THEY? They’re so BIG. Do they help you see better than the other ones because they’re bigger? They’re good. They’re so big.

Oscar: WHA? NEW GA GA? ON MAMA! WHY? WHEN? WHERE FROM? WHA? NEW GA GA? ON MAMA! WHY? WHEN? WHERE FROM? WHA? NEW GA GA? ON MAMA! WHY? WHEN? WHERE FROM? WHA? NEW GA GA? ON MAMA! WHY? WHEN? WHERE FROM?

 

 

Earlier in the year when all those things were going wrong with the left side of my body a friend said things going wrong wtih the left side of your body meant you were supressing your feminine side. Then Purple Cath on Twitter did a card for me and it was all about getting intouch with my feminine side. WTF people.

 

So now I’ve cut all my hair off and got androgynous glasses and I feel more feminine than I have in a long time. GO FIGURE!

 

ONWARD!

    I quite like them. But, perhaps you don’t know what my specs look like.

      OH.MY.GOD.

      You do realise I had that pic lined up to put in this post saying, really, I’m just wanting the guts to get something like Eliot Gould in the Ocean’s movies.

      I KID YOU NOT.

      Either those or those big black rimmed round ones that doyenne of style in NY wears. But I couldn’t remember her name or find a pic of her so I abandoned that line.

      Seriously. Am cacking myself. Soul sisters.

        Her name is Iris Apfel – I was just reading an interview with her last week (how weird is that!!) … here is an article with a pic so you can drool over the specs

          ZOMG – that’s her! At what age do you think I could start getting away with wearing those?

            I’d say right about now – it’s all about the attitude!

            Or as Indiana Jones once said,”It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage”

            :o)

    Love the hair. I wish my skull was better shaped for short hair.
    And glasses: both good. I think I prefer the originals but only because they are green, and only by a whisker. Also, how nice are all your boys?!

    There is nothing like doing something for yourself to make you feel feminine, a little time out, a little purchase goes along way to lifting the spirits. Enjoy!

    You have instant hair. I am feeling very gutless in my last haircut now. You are officially the queen of FUNKY

    Loving them! Will post a pic of my librarian look soon :-) I also feel they’re nerdy enough but most of the square ones were so big I looked like a child wearing mum’s glasses.
