speccy four eyes

I’m a speccy four eyes. I have been since I was about 13 (just to add to the long list of things to make me self conscious as a teenager – a speccy, spotty, shortie with train track braces).

Of course, choosing my first pair of frames took me AGES. I needed to walk the fine line of looking sophisticated yet not too nerdy. The pair I ended up getting were fine – tortoiseshell, too big for my face, but otherwise ok, but for years I avoided wearing them wherever possible. It was when my university flat mate Chrissie shouted at me for squinting at the TV for the millionth time that year, I had to finally admit I needed to wear specs full time. This was even after a number of upgrades of my frames to a gorgeous little pair of agnès.b’s.  Now if someone had warned me I’d have a big fat wrinkle between my eyebrows because of squinting at the TV, I might have acted a little quicker…..

It struck me recently that I never remember having had an amazing selection of frames to choose from – I wanted to look cool, but it was impossible when the selection available was so limited. Of course nowadays it’s a completely different picture – my 11yo cousin was delighted when she was told she needed specs! And wearing glasses is so fashionable now, fashion frames (without the beer bottle lenses) are sold everywhere on the high street.

Young ones now have an amazing selection of frames to choose from – there are loads on these pages that I would be happy to wear (though I’m not sure a 35yo could pull off the violet Daisy shaped ones!).

Lovely aren’t they? I think it’s inevitable that either of my children will end up wearing glasses, so I’ll be looking back at this post when they do!
