what i wore > out and about

head to toe:
glasses - Red Velvet
shirt - vintage
skirt - Dainty June
shoes - Blowfish

Picture 2 shows me prepping for a jump, Picture 3 shows one of my best jump shots ever and Picture 4 shows me being very impressed with myself (probably for my good jumping skills).

I wore this outfit on Friday when I went to get our marriage licence! While I was getting it a whole bunch of people were coming in to get burn permits, haha. I guess those are popular.

So, although these glasses are phoney balonies I do wear real glasses and I really need to get myself an eye exam and a new pair of glasses. Does anyone have any recommendations for places online to get glasses (ones that are good for Canadians like me too)?

I hope you are all having a good day!

ps. my feet look unusually veiny in that lat photo, haha. must be all the jumping!

  6. Oooh! I'm in Alberta- and I ordered last time from www.zennioptical.com (and actually I'm putting in another order this week!) they're not the most high end frames, and no 'brand names' but seriously, there are some fun frames, shipping is cheap- AND they were at my front door within 4 days! Cool hey? I ordered 2 pairs last time and it was just over $40! Good luck- I know you'll find something awesome!

  7. This is fantastic. And Crystal is right--it's all about zennioptical.com! I actually have a pair of prescrip sunnies in the mail from them today! Some of the styles are silly, but you can get some dirt cheap glasses there. It's good for ladies like me that need glasses like they need earrings.

    Also, this outfit is srumtrilescent. I can't tell you how much I love that shirt. You are a goddess.

  9. Again congrats on your license!
    I love those glasses, I love phony glasses even when I was in middle school I would buy them and ppl would always ask why they were so cute pftt if they knew they weren't real lol
    By the way I love your shirt it looks boyish and cute (don't get me wrong) I really mean CUTE.

  11. I love nerd glasses!! I ordered some without lenses for double nerdiness! I have a glasses recommendation, http://www.zennioptical.com/ because they are so cheap. I don't know about shipping though.

  14. Cute!! :) Love the stripey shirt + glasses! And I've heard great things about clearlycontacts.ca - I mean, despite the cheesy commercials. lol. I haven't looked myself, but have heard they have awesome deals on frames + contacts. :)

  15. I bought my glasses from Clearly Contacts when they had all their frames on sale for $38 (I maybe bought 5 pairs...) One tip though, depending on your prescription and the lenses/coating that you get it might be cheaper to order from the American site (and definitely will be for contacts) CoastalContacts.com. Your order will still ship from Canada even though you will pay in American dollars (I'm in Vancouver, and my boyfriend orders his contacts and stuff through the American site.)

    These Derek Cardigan frames are super similar to the ones you have on: http://www.clearlycontacts.ca/glasses/frames/derek-cardigan-7004-green-tortoiseshell/prod27024.html?rsView=1

  21. Hurrah for jumping shots! And love the stripes, hey. Super cute :)

  22. zenni optical has really cheap glasses but just beware online ordering, their prescriptions are fine but one pair i got just looked a lot weirder on me than i expected and i never wore them, they were only $10 though so not too big of a deal

  23. Yeah for inferior vision! WOOT.
    I got a new prescription back in Sept 2010 and I JUST ordered new contacts last week, and am still wearing my old glasses prescription.
    I've been considering Warby Parker. The frames are all INCREDIBLE, and they're under 100 bucks! SAY WHAAA!
    Also, they DO ship to us Canadians, and they also have this amazing trial program where you pick 5 trial frames for you to test out for five days before deciding what ones to order! HOW FREAKING PERFECT.

  25. I love your striped top so much! Cute pictures. I'd definitely check out zenni optical for some super cheap prescription glasses. I ordered two pairs from there last year. If you have time to look through their many many glasses, you're sure to find some cool ones.
