In my previous post, "How To AccessorEYES," I discussed using eyewear as a tool to add personality to your looks. I wear prescription lenses, and in my early days I wasn't a fan of wearing glasses. I have since learned to not only embrace my opticals, but my eyewear is now a carefully considered part of my wardrobe.
I own several pair of prescription glasses and due to my RX, they can be very costly, so I do the following to help alleviate the financial burden.
- I incorporate eyewear into my budget and treat it as an expense.
- My insurance allows me one new pair of prescription lenses per year, and a new pair of frames every other year, so I take advantage of those benefits religiously.
- I budget enough money in my Flexible Spending Account to cover expenses that exceed what my insurance covers.
- I get my eyes examined every year, and if my prescription changes only slightly, I will forego updating all my eyeglasses with the new prescription.
Now onto the good stuff. I've been lusting after these Alain Mikli frames for quite some time now. I purchased them from my friends over at Omega Optical.
I will show you in the coming weeks and months how I werk these frames into my wardrobe.
So I took something that I viewed as a flaw and re-framed it (pun intended) as a fashion accessory. I'm learning that in life, it's your attitude and the way you view things that can make all the difference in the world.
Thank you for reading, and please visit me again soon.
Be Fearless. Stay Fashionable. Have Fun!
