geek glasses

I've become obsessed with glasses. I've had them for 22 years, but have usually worn contacts since 6th grade. My prescription is ridiculous! -8.5! That's terrible! So the lenses alone cost like $400. I've been picking up vintage glasses at thrift stores for years, I don't know why, I just think they are fun. I paid to get anti-glare lenses with no prescription in my vintage American Optical horn-rimmed glasses. Then a friend who works at an optical store told me he could shove lenses in the rest of my vintage frames FOR FREE... so be prepared for a lot of kooky glasses to make an appearance over the next few weeks. In return I am secretly designing a shirt for him that will have a reverse mermaid on it (fish on top, legs on the bottom). It's ridiculous and so funny!


 Glasses - thrifted American Optical

 Cardigan - it's a Jones NY I've had forever, years ago it got three burn holes in it from my idiot smoker friends (it was on a table while I was dancing and wound up on top of an ashtray, back when you could still smoke in bars), so I added a bunch of buttons to cover them up!

Ok, just a short post! I have the day off and am making a Max from "Where the Wild Things Are" costume for my friend J-Rod all day. There's fur all over my condo!

Love the geek glasses. As a fellow blind nerd myself, I've particularly taken to the nerd glasses trend.
