early christmas pressie from my husband.

remember when i told you the unfortunate story about my most beloved pair of bebe glasses? I don't think i ever showed you a photo after the dogs got a hold of them. Oh man, i wanted to cry.

after it happened, max was going to buy me a new pair of the exact style ... until i saw the nearly $300 price tag. i couldn't justify spending that much again (at the time, they were a splurge on myself after i quit the news station).

luckily, he accepted my insistence because i saw these pretty girls blog about Warby Parker & loving their new specs and i was seriously impressed! $95 dollars (includes prescription and no shipping) for trendy glasses? and not only that-- but for every pair they sell, they donate one to a person in need.

i was in love with them and even moreso after getting The Zagg Eyeglasses in Tennessee Whiskey from my husband!



i wasn't sure i could pull off the two-toned look, but i didn't care-- i loved them!


i got them on tuesday and haven't stopped wearing them since. Thank-you husband!!! 


love, 

your blind wife xo

Such a sweet note to Max - Love your blind wife - Ha!

My sister and Humbe will gang up on me and say I'm blind as a bat - Haha!
The only thing that motivates me to wear my glasses is that they are red and black with a diamond or two! Must show you a a picture sometime ;)

Love you xoxoxo

bethany said...

oh my gosh, how cute are you!

confession: i desperately want glasses. i have for ages. they're just so adorable, and add so much personality. unfortunately, i have decent vision. my boyfriend, however, is up for new glasses...cannot wait to shop with him! :)

Claire Kiefer said...

You look so beautiful. They look even a billion times better on you than they do just sitting in their case. They're perfect! I've always kinda wanted glasses . . . I'm not sure that I want the bad eyesight that comes along with it, but glasses are so cute!

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

oh fiancee, you are just so beautiful! i mean seriously! those glasses are so smart looking and i think you pull off the two tone look perfectly.

i love that sweater! i still can't believe we got the stuff for so cheap. i'm already looking forward to a warm day so i can wear my sparkly shirt!

Pretty! That was sweet of your husband to want to buy you another pair. I actually like those more than the Bebe glasses. Great find!

You look way too cute, my dear!

You look beautiful!

Gracie said...

Those are really beautiful! You look so sophisticated with glasses! I wish I could pull mine off half as well as you do. Plus I need some new ones too.

If you wanted I could get the snapfish ornament for you?! Although you won't be able to use if for this year's tree but it's an ongoing product on the Aussie site.

April said...

Those look a lot like the glasses I got before going to England! I think they look better on you though ;)

Marisa said...

I just love glasses...and I really love yours! I think you pull off the two-toned look totally! I had an awesome pair of two toned glasses, the ones where the 'inside' is a different color than the 'outside'. They were brown and turquoise. Sadly, I left them in the floor of my NYC hotel room 2 years ago on New Year's Eve. I've missed them tons ever since.

Oh, My Darling said...

Warby Parkers are the best -- I adore mine! You look super-cute in your new specs!

Abi P. said...

Those are so adorable! I wear my glasses all the time :D You totally can rock the two toned look btw!
