I too have had to succumb to *shudder* … progressive lenses. And in order to afford them so my eyes could see, I had to sacrifice an arm and leg.
Bossy looks like herself, urban chic. Does Uncle Sammy have the urban chic look too?

when I saw this image, I thought “crap – I copied bossy” because I just got these same frames – in tortoise shell… I’m happy to hear that I’m just LIKE Bossy and not copying her in an unhealthy stalkery way.

I got those readers, too. But! I don’t really wear them because I’m not ready to surrender. I’ve taken to wearing only one contact, and that seems to do the trick for now. I will not go gently into that dark night.

DUDE those glasses are awesome. I wish I needed glasses just so I could rock a super cool pair like that!

LOVE the glasses…I embrace my eye site degeneration because I think it makes me look smarter, when in reality it just irritates the poop out of me that I fall asleep with them on my face and they fall in the floor in the middle of the night.
P.S. I am a long time follower of you and Pioneer Woman and just found out that you both are friends. I was super pumped when I found this out. It’s always exciting to hear that the bloggers you follow are buds!

I’ve worn glasses for most of my adult life but it was because my distance vision sucked. When my up-close eyeball went, too, it was either progressive lenses for me or moving through life in both a visual AND mental fog. I chose to only try navigating one fog at a time. That’s right – I started taking antidepressants and speed. Seriously, I opted for the progressive lenses, but in as skinny a frame as I could get away with. I’m not as rad as Bossy, but I still look pretty cool.

Like the new glasses. You look so hip and cool.

Oh Bossy, I can’t even chop my mise en place without my reading glasses anymore. Welcome to the club.

I’ve been basically blind without glasses/contacts since third grade. Welcome to the dark side, Bossy. Couldn’t have picked cuter glasses to join with!

Fashion affectation, baby!
It’s our last thing ’til colored droolie cups.

Oh Bossy – you’re such the hipster!
I recall that fateful moment when I discovered while waiting in line at Ace Hardware that the readers on the rack cleared things up so markedly…
I now curse darkly-lit restaurants with small font menus, and dark-labeled cans. My far vision is hawk-like, however. I can read signs across the prairie.

It came down to contacts for distance + reading glasses, OR glasses for distance and NO READING GLASSES. So, I gave up the contacts and now I remove my glasses to read. Filed under: Born in the 1960s
