Thank you so much to everyone for your concern and kind words. After weeks of treatment and taking it easy I am very happy to let you know that my vision made a full recovery (or at least I’m only as blind as I was to begin, which is correctably so). It’s still a few weeks before I find out whether contacts will be an option again. Until then, let me introduce you to the latest fixture on my face – the Webb by Warby Parker:
With any luck they will be making the shift from a permanent appendage to an occasional addition. Don’t get me wrong – I could not have asked for a more perfect pair – but having a mandatory accessory has started to dictate certain wardrobe choices. (For example, it looks just ridiculous to wear a feather headdress and glasses…)
That being said, there was one particular outfit that I felt worked. It wasn’t dominated by the glasses, but they didn’t look out of place. It didn’t play into the nerdy chic aesthetic I’ve been stuck in lately.
[Side note: After taking a month off of outfit photos I can only assume I'm out of practice. There's no other excuse for the goofy expression and awkward pose before you - and this was the best of the bunch!]
Of course, I broke a few rules here. And I’m not even talking about pairing navy and black (although I feared BostonMo would crucify me for the combination).
I hereby confess that I wore this to not one, but two events in the same week. I’m only human. I was feeling particularly glum given the fashion limitations of wearing specs, the odd jolting-yellow effect the medications had on my last bleach job, and the discovery upon unpacking summer clothes that I’ve gained a few pounds in the past year. So when I found an outfit I really liked, I went for it.
First, at the Swapaholics‘ Earth Day Exchange:

And then at the Easter Bunneh Party at Uncle Pete’s Shop:

Do you revoke my fashion blogger license for doing so? I certainly hope not, because it’s so good to be back!
