Frimoo Glasses, Vintage Bow Tie (from my Grandfather), Lands End Cardigan: Savers, Blouse: Ralph Lauren, Jeans: Levi’s, Ring: Florence, Jessica Simpson Booties: MarshallsI wore this outfit to the office on Halloween; new glasses, a new to me bow tie, and my favorite peep toe booties. When a coworker poked fun at my professorial “geek chic” non-costume costume another replied “think about it, Caitlin dresses up every day, give her a day off.”
At first this comment freaked me out; do I look like I’m going to a costume party the other 364 days of the year, but I realized that I do sort of dress up everyday, be it channeling my inner diva or English professor.
Truth be told the only real reason I went the “geek chic” route for Halloween was so I could wear my new glasses from Firmoo*. I’ve been looking to get a second pair of glasses for a while (I already have this chunky black pair) so when I saw Firmoo’s “First Pair Free” deal I couldn’t resist.
I knew I wanted brown glasses and something about these frames reminded me of Tess in Working Girl, so my choice was pretty easy. I am already considering buying a pair of sunglasses… and maybe a third pair of glasses.
where have you had luck with buying glasses online?
