When I was in second grade, the school nurse called my parents in for a meeting. I sat outside the infirmary, but the door was cracked enough for me to hear her tell my parents how concerned she was because she’d witnessed me squinting in the library.
Except when she said “squinting” I thought she meant “squatting,” and just assumed she saw me showing my panties to an entire bookshelf of Judy Bloom books like some kind of trollop. I never bent over in the library again.
Two eye doctor appointments later, the correct definition and my vision became much clearer, and my life as a bespectacled chubby girl with a gap between her teeth and poodle hair began.
Don’t worry, yall. This is the stuff that builds character and stellar comedic timing.
Since then, there’s been contact lenses, talk of of Lasik, trendy frames, and even some tooth bonding.
While I’m not ready to laser my eyeballs just yet… I’ve made peace with my -4.75 vision. And thanks to the rise of the hiptser, not only do I get rad circle scarves and irony, but I also get killer frame options!
Enter Rivet & Sway, an adorable online glasses shoppe. Much like hippie headbands and Bill Murray memorabilia, I’m a sucker for cute glasses, so I picked out three completely different shapes to try on at home (for free-sies, y’all, this is genius), and now I need your help deciding which style to pull the trigger on.
Spitfire. A cat eye shape is something I always wanted to try, but I was afraid of looking too Chris Farley in Lunchlady Land. But these tortoise shell frames with a pop of green? Have mercy. Yeah, I just john Stamos’ed over them. I’m that obsessed.
Poetic License. I don’t normally gravitate toward round glasses due to my face shape, but the inside of the frame was lavender, so I couldn’t resist. They felt like a more romantic take on Harry Potter glasses, and we all know what a nerd I am about that.
Hungry Heart. So I’m obviously a square glasses fan. they are flattering and familiar, and if you’ve learned nothing today, I have a hard on for tortoise shell. But are these too safe inside my comfort zone?
Ok so, I definitely have a favorite (meow), but I want you to have one too, so thanks to Rivet & Sway, I’m going to give a pair away to you, too!
