The thing that annoys me now is how popular glasses have become. So so many people are now wearing them and some people say i should be thankful at them being trendy, but i am not to be honest! I use to feel somewhat superior with my glasses a few years ago,as i was the only person at school who wore them. Fast forward now and there is loads of people at school and in my city, all with designer labels and cool hairstyles to match their frames!
The worst was when i went to a gig were Grimes was playing. i should have known there would have been a lot of hipsters there because her music is vey like in that vein, but i literally felt so bland. There were tons (no joke) with guys with glasses and i felt really anonymous. I would be intrigued to discover if anybody else here, who has worn glasses for nearly all the life, ever had this same feeling?
I hadn't really noticed glasses being trendy, but that explains a couple of things
I've been wearing glasses practically all my life, they're just a part of me now. I tried contacts, but really dislike them for multiple reasons. My advice is to never let yourself feel superior for any reason, and that way you will never have to come down a peg
, I have not been in a ballgown when others were in street clothes before, but from having to wear skirts as a child and teenager when others were in jeans, I became immune to discomfort from being overdressed. Being underdressed is the only thing that can bother me now
Luxury is living a simple, elegant, and responsible life. Luxury is a reduction.
