When my eyes actually went bad about a year later it took quite a bit of convincing that I was actually seeing a blurry chalkboard as opposed to being a manipulative 12 year old. My first pair of wire rimmed tortoise shell frames were acquired in 7th grade.
I was done with them by fall of 8th grade. Playing volleyball with glasses was annoying and I was over using a glasses strap to keep them on my face. I rocked that strap for sports prior to contacts. Have no doubt, I was totally cool.
In 2012 I'd been reading blogs and found my first pair of online glasses [for free] and since then I've been hooked on cheap frames. Granted, I have a super-low prescription and I don't spend more than $15 a pair AND returns are annoying so I'm stuck if I get something I don't actually want, but it's been OK for me.
Plus, I didn't have insurance for a while there, so cheap glasses it was!
I really like these ones and I wear them quite a bit even though they're out of the heavy rotation right now. I can't remember where I got them, I'm pretty sure I just googled around until I found some I liked after I was inspired by this pin on pinterest a couple of years ago.
I think these were my first colorful frames. LOVE.
The first frames I ordered. I don't wear them any more because the clear parts don't look so clear anymore. I'd totally get another pair though if they made them, but unfortunately they don't. I went as far as emailing the company and they replied, but nothing. Sad day. This brand does have some gold glitter frames though. *heart eye emoji* I attempted to replace them, but the glasses I got just didn't live up to these standards. )-:
Zenni frames that I never wear. I have a big head and I feel like they're just a touch too small...so, I got another pair. [hint: see below]
These aren't available anymore, but they're totally Sally Jessy Raphael sized frames. They're the famous frames that the Grandpa doesn't love.
I loved the green ones so much, I got them in purple too.
These were my last pair of glasses from the optometrist when I went in 2010. Don't be like me. Get your eyes checked.
Not my favorite pair, plus they're scratched horribly.
HEY-O! CLEAR PINK GLASSES. <3 br=""> 3>
These are my three favorite pairs right now.
