Sometimes I Dress Like This:

I got my new reading glasses a couple of days ago!
I didn't know that I could be so excited about glasses.
As soon as I saw these frames, I knew that we were meant to be together :o) The lady at the optical office couldn't believe I picked them. (what does she know, right?)
They're quirky, I know. But that's what I love about them! They say:
"Oh yes I did wear these in public!"


And they work wonderfully with my style, because sometimes I dress like this:




And in case (like me) you're wondering where to get these adorable lace-trimmed socks in adult sizes....I still have no idea. I made these myself :o)

Anyway, long live "quirky"!
Here's to being ourselves. :o)

  9. Cheers! haha!

    I remember wearing those types of socks when I was a child (I'm sure she purchased them at a local WalMart, but I don't know if they still sell them? I have the urge to go check now!), so the picture of you wearing them is fabulous.

    and just like everyone else, I love the glasses. I love your style, and putting them both together is like peanut butter and jelly. peas and carrots. apple pie and... cheese? ;)

    your hair is cute too... are they natural curls? or with a curling iron?
