Fast forward a few years, and I toddle off the optician for a routine check because my eyes have been sore lately. Lo and behold, I probably do need some glasses now, and I'm no longer sure I want any. There are so many more options, colours, shapes, frame types than I'd anticipated and to be honest I don't know where to start to determine what suits me.
So I thought I'd try out a pair from MyOptique, although there are so many pairs of women's glasses on there I didn't really know where to start, so I went through their Style Finder to narrow my search down a little. I settled on this pair of Nancy frames, seeing as I like tortoiseshell and these had other colours in them as well, which I hoped would mean they'd go with lots of outfits.
I tried them out for the first time on Sunday, where I had an invitation to represent County Guiding for the local Coronation service. Despite the fact that I'm not religious at all, I was intrigued to go to the local abbey and have a look at it, as I'd never before been inside and I do find old ecclesiastical buildings pretty and interesting.
I wore my new skirt suit from Primark - a recent, sale-rail aquisition, and I'd pondered over whether or not this was Guiding-appropriate, before deciding it would have to do. (Most people seem to wear black trousers, of which I don't own any, nor do I intend to). I threw on a new pair of shoes and was good to go.
Will I get used to wearing glasses? I don't need them very often at the moment, so that's good. I really want a pair of red frames, after seeing a beautiful photo of Amanda Seyfried in some red glasses. I'm not sure if it's the glasses I liked or the mistaken hope that they would make me look as pretty as she did..But we shall see.
