Hi, guys! Greetings from The Land of the Clear Sighted! I finally got my new glasses, and I’m superbly thrilled to finally be able to clearly see the delicious detailed treats on T.V. when I watch The Great British Baking Show.
Like, I used to get moderatly hungry while watching that show even when I was half blind because I didn’t want to wear my contacts or my old glasses, but now that I can actually see the chocolate work and the shine on the ganache and the layers within every puffed pastry in extreme detail, I get ravenous! — and now I’m even that much more excited about baking.
There are two main reasons I got these glasses, other than the fact that I think they’re pretty cute and don’t look like any other frames I’ve worn before.
First, they were on sale for 50% off (they list for $299), and now I kinda wish I’d also gotten a pair of Kate Spade sunglasses at the same time.
Second, I like how they fit on my face. I don’t have a prominent nose bridge, and many plastic frames that don’t have nose pads slip right down. But these actually sit snugly on my nose because the lenses are closer than usual. The distance between them is 15mm, which works great for me.
Plus, they don’t squeeze the sides of my head like a vise (always a good thing!).
Oh, and third, because I’m adding a third reason, I like that the side — I don’t know what they’re officially called, but I want to call them the side arms — aren’t too heavily “blinged out.”
I went to Costco a couple weeks ago to check out their glasses, but everything I saw at the time was bejeweled or had obvious name branding, so I left empty-handed. I like that these just have the subtle spade symbol and gold accents, although I could’ve done without those too. But these were still one of the subtlest pairs at Kaiser. (There must be an optical bling trend going on now.)
By the way, these also come in a baby blue-tortoiseshell, which I also tried on, but I thought they were bolder than the pink-tortoiseshell combo.
I mean, these aren’t exactly subtle, but I don’t think they’re too in your face (my face?). The pink is almost like a neutral.
Anyway, I like ’em. And I can see clearly meow! 👓🐱
