Couture Glasses (+ a Giveaway)

I have been on the hunt for that perfect pair of glasses for what feels like an eternity now.  I have also been near-blind since about the second grade when my teacher caught me squinting up at the chalkboard.  It was all downhill after that.  Since then I’ve been through one disastrous pair of prescription glasses after the other.  I went through my red plastic Sally Jesse Raphael glasses phase.  I broke a few pairs in between those.  Then I had a thin tortoise shell pair of frames that I’ve painfully worn, only on those days when I could not stand to wear my contacts for a second longer.  But today, I’m ready to proudly wear my glasses.  (Evidence, below.)  Geek has to be chic by now … right?

Joe Zee,  Elle Magazine’s creative director and top fashion expert, talks fashionable glasses in a new digital series, Eyes on Style, putting a fresh lens on frames and showing us that no matter what your personal style, a chic pair of glasses can elevate any look to a whole new level.  (Catch the series here!)

And I too finally found my perfect pair: I adore these Dolce & Gabbana glasses (below) because they’re fashionable geek …  (In full disclosure, I may be more geek than the norm.)  They’re couture, just a little bit exaggerated, and also pretty darn awesome.  You like?

And now you can have your very own snazzy Dolce & Gabbana pair as well.  Prescription or not, glasses are definitely cool again.

To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is:

  1. Follow @glitterinclexi on Twitter.
  2. Like Glitter, Inc. on Facebook.
  3. For an extra entry, Follow @glitterinclexi on instagram.  (And tell me in a second comment that you instagrammed!)
  4. Comment on this post with your email address.

Giveaway Ends Friday, November 16, 2012 at 11:59pm EST.  For US Residents Only.  Good luck!

  12. Dude. I definitely didn’t recognize the second set of pictures as being you. I thought it was the glasses model at first. Bahah. You look gorgeous–I love that lipstick color! What is it?

  13. Oops. I left that comment before I got all the way down to the contest entries. Haha. I stalk you on all corners of the internet…and in life. -creep status- does that count as a contest entry? i do need some awesome reading glasses… and I feel like people at work judge me because I like glitter and My Little Pony and they don’t think I’m as smart as I am. I figure glasses can add +7 intelligence.

  14. i am in love with your glasses and the entire look- omgoodness, how hot are you?? Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog~~ I’m so sorry that i havent been able to respond and check out your blog until now- but am so glad I took the moment to because i LOVE IT!
