them brows

Thanks to extremely poor vision (and an acid attack, no I don't want to talk about it...), I've worn glasses since I was a child. I have become so accustomed to wearing them that I could never dream of wearing contacts. Not that I could, even if I wanted to, as the acid attack left me unable to wear contacts.  Thusly I spend a lot time searching for the perfect spectacles, opting for an interesting"statement" pair - something that makes a first impression. There is no singular item that I place more consideration and forethought into than a new pair of specs.  Glasses are worn every single day on the most visible part of your body! They should enhance your features and blend with your wardrobe! Therefore, I exercise extremely due diligence when selecting my next pair, and pay the highest attention to design, form, and daily wearability.

So when I saw the Prada Fall 2010 eyebrow glasses, I KNEW that they are destined to be my next pair.

For people like me, who obsess over spectacles and quirky eyebrows, this is practically porn. I adore the exaggerated cat-eye shape, which brings to life Prada's ethos of sexy-matron-attitude-without-the-fuss. The heavy form of the glasses would provide a healthy structural contrast to the draped pieces I usually wear, allowing my eyes to make a statement that my flowy garments could not.

BUT!! Do they pass the Photoshop test?!



DINGDINGING WE HAVE A WINNER!
 Prada eyebrow glasses, you will be mine. I'll set up camp outside the Prada boutique in Chicago if I have to, just to ensure that I get a pair in the colorway worn by Valerija Kelava before they sell out. MUST. OWN. THESE. GLASSES.




PS: Here is what I look like without glasses, for those of you who are interested. I don't like the way my face looks without them.

I'm wearing glasses too! And by the way I've forgotten totake them from my home, so now I'm glassless.

This Prada glasses are really cool, but would you really wear them everyday? There are really distraction.
But there would be grat to ware them from time to time.

Love,
Ola.
