This is a very different look for me. For the past few years I have always worn framless or very light colored glasses. My philosophy has been that glasses should melt into your face so that you cannot see them. It is part of my fear of drawing attention to myself (kind of weird that I bog, huh?). Anyway, my glasses have been always been boring.
I finally decided that if I am going to wear glasses, I am going to WEAR glasses. The lady at the shop tried to talk me into some purple stripped ones. I had just come from an English lesson and was wearing a plain fitted, blue blouse, denim skirt, black hose and black loafers. I thought I looked nice, classic (okay and maybe a bit boring), but it frightens me that this German thought, "Yes, purple stripped glasses would definitely complete that outfit." But that is the thing about Germans. They definitely WEAR glasses. Unfortunately that leads to very bad things, like polka-dots or triangles.
I decided that this pair was "classic" but not boring. However, now I feel REALLY self-conscious. So far though the feedback has been good. Although the guy in the office across the hall said that they make me like a teacher . . . Is that a compliment or an insult?
