For contact wearers like me, wearing your glasses isn't always your go-to option. I mean, the point of getting contacts was to limit wearing your glasses. That being said, I never really liked wearing glasses in public, until I realized how cute a pair of frames could look with an outfit.
When I first was introduced to GlassesShop, I got giddy over the vast selections of prescription sunglasses, prescription eyeglasses, and more to choose from. It was like a far or near sighted kid in a candy store, but with items that could make them not only see the world around them through crisp vision, but add style and show their personality with the frames they choose. I know what you're thinking, because I thought about it too, aren't prescription sunglasses and eyeglasses expensive? Why not just stick with the clunky pair I have now? Never fear, GlassesShop offers extremely inexpensive glasses.
Plus, they currently have a campaign called First Pair Of Glasses Free, which literally means that you can get your optical glasses and sunglasses for just the price of shipping and handling. Eye think that you will be excited to know that GlassesShop is generously offering my readers 50% off eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses with the code GSHOT50. Whoa. What better accessories to have for fall than a good book, yummy hot chocolate, and a stylish set of new frames? Nothing. Well, unless it's the coat I'm sporting in this outfit.
Scarce of hot chocolate, I took my stylish set of frames on the hunt with me for a new juicy book to read. I'm getting a little nerdy in this post, but I have always been an avid reader. From fiction, my new favorite genre is fashion. Who wouldn't want to know the history of Chanel? Advice from Rachel Zoe? Relish in the photography of Giorgio Armani?
Statement coats seem to be all the rage right now, and when I laid eyes on this wool tweed jacket from Peter Som, I knew it was just the right over sized statement jacket that I needed. It's structured, but slouchy, and is the perfect coat to make you look like you tried, but not too much. In other words, it's a healthy balance of style, sophistication, and a mindless option.
Since I am on the hunt for a good read, I had this tank to showcase that I am fluent in fashion (or am rather teaching myself to be fluent. Who can keep up?). Paired with a simple pair of black skinny jeans, I adding on my ultimate favorite Franco Sarto booties / heels. These look so very European to me, and I say that in every post, but they just always strike me as very Paris school girl.
Last, but not least, is my trusty Kate Spade bag. It's the perfect size, style, and has the right functionality to be a purse that I take with me everywhere. From traveling to just bopping around the city streets, it's always right there with me.
