Sibley and Thatcher

Since becoming an official blind bat- I've been getting used to the notion of always making sure I have glasses around. Where I once laughed at my squinting friends trying to see the blackboard across the classroom, I'm now the one doesn't wave at anyone unless they're 2 feet away because I have no idea who they are. I also will run up and hug people who I think are my boyfriend from behind. So Ladies please, give the random girl who hugs your boyfriend at the gym a minute to explain: she likely is not wearing her glasses.

It's been an adjustment.

However, as frustrating as it is to be reliant on a device to see after 26 years doing that solo- I'm getting into it and enjoying expanding my glasses collection. C'est la vie.

Enter my second pair of Warby Parker glasses that came all shiny and new in the mail last week:
 {^The Sibley style. Taken last Saturday, April 28th at home. Weather must be warm if I'm wearing this dress.}
{^The Thatcher style. My contribution to the Hipster Gods Taken at work in February.}
Here's to not hugging anymore strangers without their expressed consent.

..some people suit wearing glasses , some don't ..

You look fantastic , you definitely have the sexy look , I love it , fabulous !

Leia said...

I just bought new glasses too! I rarely wear them outside the house, though. I prefer contact lenses - I feel more confident in them and also can put sunglasses on top!

Jax said...

Oh, I love your glasses!!! You look great in them :) I invested in a really expensive pair swearing up and down that I would wear them. Now, I wear them after I get home when noone sees me and on Sundays when all I see is my family. LOL

Have you tried contacts? They are my saving grace at work..

You look so gorg in both styles, Caitlin; though the Thatcher is my favorite - I LOVE those frames! :)

P.S. The new Megalast Salon Nail Colors from Wet 'n' Wild have actually become a favorite of mine. They are incredibly high quality and affordable. Plus the pigmentation is gorgeous - a definite must-buy! :)

Unknown said...

You look pretty in those glasses :)
In fact, you look intellectual woman...a little bit nerdy !!

Lindsey @ The Hill House said...

Ha! It's a wonder you didn't cause any cat fights at the gym! :) Hugging random guys...Ha!!
I love the glasses in the last picture; you look beautiful! I have had to wear glasses since I was in 4th or 5th grade, so forgive me for not feeling any sympathy for you having to join my 4-eyes club. We are an elite group though, so you are in excellent company.:)

Tina said...

Unknown said...

glasses can be so cool! IM blind as a bat, have been since like 2nd grade, and while I usually wear my contacts, I have been sporting my Juicy Couture glasses more lately. So chic :)

Lindsay said...

You look so cute in glasses!!! I love the second pair! And yay for not hugging random guys now. I'm sure your boyfriend and many girlfriends will be happy about that.

drollgirl said...

ha! i bet strangers love getting hugs from you!

and you look gorgeous with the specs! love them!

Elle Sees said...

but you look so cute though!!! i look like a nerd.

happy hour 24/7 said...

ROTFL to "cheers to not hugging strangers anymore without their expressed consent!" i feel ya girl. i wave to so many people, and i end up asking whoever i'm with, "who was that?!" they look so cute on you!

Panty Buns said...

That's hilarious! If I ever get a random hug from behind from someone I'll just hope it's you. I wear glasses myself for reading and have gotten them one notch stronger every three or four years for a little while. I get the inexpensive non-prescription ones from pharmacies and four pairs - three strategic locations and one in a pocket. I guess I'm lucky I haven't needed them for distance yet, but If I start accidentally hugging women I don't know from behind I'll know that time has come. Thanks for the giggle.

Amanda @ Life with A.Co said...

Awww!! I love these new glasses on you!! I just got my first pair of plastic frames (EVER) and that in itself is an adjustment (I've always worn metal... but my Rx is minor so I don't have to wear them 24/7... that said, I'm in the same boat as you with the waving!!! lol... but not the hugging of the wrong bf ;)

BTW, your post about Juan is sooo sweet. Sounds like you have a great friend there and many photos to show it :)

PS - Did you just call me a 'powerhouse'?? lol. LOVE IT!!! :D

Bravoe Runway said...

You look so cute in these glasses! I have needed glasses since I was 10 and I am afraid of getting lasik! You pull of the glasses so well!

I have perfect vision, however my parents & sister wear glasses, so I know its going to be in my future sometime, & I totally want your Thatcher style once. I been meaning to go to Urban Outfitters & getting a pair of fake once. I wanna wear glasses, I think I look smarter. (Which I totally need)

Both frames look great on you, I just like the 2nd pair better.

Lauryn said...

Hah! I too have been known to squint like a crazy person trying to read signs or the tv guide channel. I haven't hugged a stranger yet, that's a great story!

Harriet said...

Love the glasses! I started wearing glasses in the oh-so-painful middle school years, so I wanted to get contacts ASAP. Which subsequently means that I never really got used to wearing glasses around other people... and now I'm missing out on some cute (and functional) accessories. Maybe I'll check out a new frame next time I make it to the optometrist... you just look so dang cute with them on-- I'm jealous! :)

Mandy @ In the Fashion Lane said...

Random hugging??? That is awesome!!!

Love the new frames...def different look from the Thatcher.

I still need to order mine...I want bigger frames and the Thatcher is top of my list :)
