Is bling still fashionable....?

my glasses, for the last 3 years, have been reasonably 
unobtrusive but they allow me to read the telephone book, the paper,  the latest book
and mostly recognise who is talking to me...but not always!

and then suddenly I couldn't do any of those things!
So off to the optician I went.
Searched the shop and could not find frames that I liked that were also comfortable. Knew I could just have new lenses put in the old frames, but they were still really good for driving and I wanted to have a spare pair.... just in case!

The next day I decided to clear out a drawer, you know the drawer, the one where you put everything that doesn't have a home  and there it all stays until suddenly the drawer doesn't quite close any more!
At the bottom of the drawer I found a pair of sunglasses that my cousin had given me, as she didn't like them and had never worn them. Obviously at the time they hadn't impressed me either and they were her prescription so I probably couldn't see out of them anyway and so they had found their way into my 'where do I put it drawer'!

As I was about to throw them out I realised that they were rather nice to look at, looked good on and were comfortable and most importantly it appeared that the lenses could be removed'
So off to the optometrist I went again

Yes of course I could use these frames they said

and so it was done. I went to pick them up and as they were being fitted the young lass started talking about Judith Leiber glasses and I realised that I would probably never have been able to afford these glasses if they hadn't been given to me

When she told me the pretty bits of glass on the side were Swarovski crystals I knew I wouldn't have been able to afford them..... and they really, really look good on.

Well, that is, until I walk along the street on the sunny side and cause chaos to everyone else going about their business as the sun bounces of those pretty little crystals and practically blinds everyone within two feet!!!!!!

But hey I've got some bling!!

Have you?

    Bling is always fashionable. In fact I will posit a theory that "The force of the bling is equal to the sparkle times the whimsy."
    All the best

  2. That's quite a gift. Now I would know you instantly is I ran into you ( or was blinded by) you on the street!

  3. There's still lots of bling in the eyeglass sample case! It's nice to turn heads, no matter how it's done!

  4. And I've seen them on you and they are too fabulous for words. Besides, everyone could do with a bit of reflected dancing light on their face from time to time :) Don't you dare stop wearing them!

  5. I love the idea of showering passers -by with sparkles!
