Yay. I finally found some new specs that I could actually afford. I've wanted glasses like this for ages, I have some from Japan but no place would put my prescription in them because they are not a good quality plastic and they would crack apparently. So Henry found an optometrist near Chinatown that looked like it was stuck in the 1980's. In fact these glasses are from the 80's, as the optometrist got them down for me he said no one has asked to see these for 10 years...lol. They were only $35 plus my prescription so all up $125. Such a good bargain. I love the gold on each end. They are a little bigger than I would have liked but I think that kinda makes them cooler. I wore them to work tonight and got a lot of stares (possible imagined)...I think I could get teased in them at uni by some of the jocks, but oh well its worth it cos I can actually see with my new prescription, my old glasses are almost useless now.
Oh and I cut my own fringe, its not the best job and its shorter than I normally like, I did it in a hurry before my eye exam so I could actually do the tests without hair in my eyes.
My necklace is new too. It was $29 from Kinki Gerlinki in Fitzroy. Henry thought I looked like an architect today with my blunt fringe, hip specs, black dress and wooden necklace. (Henry just got his 1st real job at an architects office today, one day a week until he finishes uni at the end of the year then permanent. I am so happy for him, and now we both have jobs right across from our apartment, so convenient!!!)
