double prada eyebrow glasses all the way





Never in a million years, never in my wildest dreams, did I think that I would ever come to own this exceedingly rare, runway-only eyewear masterpiece. 

The power of the internet, man. It's truly mindblowing sometimes. Feeling extremely DOUBLE RAINBOW.

I often can't stand fashion's culture of status material glorification. Truthfully, I feel really silly about so emotional over an object. But there is an emotional component at work here. As some of you may know, in middle school I was the victim of an assault that left me with permanent damage to my eyes. The scarring left me unable to wear contacts or ever get laser corrective surgery. I have to wear glasses every day for the rest of my life in order to see properly. The Prada eyebrow glasses represent a tiny triumph over that incredibly painful period of my adolescence. If I'm forced to wear prescription glasses, I may as well rock the most cleverly-designed spectacles in recent history. Indeed, I'm truly humbled. I will treasure these glasses for the rest of my life. Happy eyebrow'd Meagan.

I don't know why, but something about these glasses made me really happy when I saw them, I actually sat here grinning like an idiot for a minute. Of course, your explanation of their significance to you makes it even better, so I'm glad you were able to find a pair.

oh my i want those glasses desperately now. when my bank balance starts to get into trouble i'll know who to blame! <3

i understand what you're saying.. it's not necessarily the personal matters issue. it's just more of the 'this is my world, you weren't invited' issue. with people i've never met, i don't really mind at all. i actually don't mind anyone knowing my 'issues'. it's just the matter of invitation i guess. but thank you dear, you always leave the smartest comments.

I'm so sorry to read that you were assaulted when you were younger.
The glasses are absolutely epic and you were them well. Clearly since they're so difficult to come by, they were waiting for someone who really deserved them!

these glasses are so fun! It's ok to sometimes have such an emotional attachment to material objects, specifically with your eye condition I think its completely fine. I approve!
