I have worn prescription glasses since I was in 6th grade. Given that I am now 47, they have been a part of my life for a long time. I have seen many things through my lenses and the look they have given me has changed many times through the years. But one thing remains. They are a part of me.

Glasses.com recently released a charming commercial portraying the things experienced  through a pair of prescription glasses from childhood through life as a young adult. It resonated with me because I had not really contemplated before just how much a part of myself my glasses are. This is true not just in the sense that they allow me to see and go about daily life, but they are a part of my sense of personal style, and hence, personality as well.

For example, my current pair of glasses have a thick chunky black frame on the outside, but they are lined with a delicate light blue on the inside. The chunky look in black stands out. You can’t miss that I am wearing glasses with them, and I like that. I think they signify my business-like manner and intelligence. They show my serious side. But that hidden flash of blue shows my girly, fun, and fashionable side. It is a like a hint at a surprise side of my personality. They are designer frames, and that adds to my sense of fashion when wearing them. I love these frames so much that I have reused them through several prescription changes now.

Here is  the Glasses.com video. Watch it and see how it resonates with you! By the way, I did some browsing, and Glasses.com has some awesome designer frames, including some similar to mine. The overall selection there is also huge!

  1. Love your thought process on your glasses. I have something similar. They are big round frames that are dark brown, but they have a chartreuse inner frame that makes them unique. I need to check out glasses.com because I need a back up pair of frames!


    Glasses say so much about someone’s personality. I hadn’t heard of Glasses dot com but definitely will check out in the future.

  3. I love the glasses you have. The ones I wear now are similar except the inside is purple.

  4. I love glasses but they are always so hard for me to find the right fit because of my flat nose!
