My obsession with glasses….and how you can win a modelling contract for yours…

It’s confession time.  Since I was ten years old I have wanted to wear glasses…not sunglasses….real glasses, the kind people need to correct their vision. That’s right. This sick, twisted mind wanted to have blurry vision that needed correcting.  So at this point you are probably wondering what would possess me to have such an odd desire. Exhibit A: Kelly Brook.

Of course, Kelly wasn’t around when I was ten but she clearly demonstrates my point.  And here’s the good news, I’m not alone in thinking like I do.  Kelly Brook recently said, “I have always been envious of people who need to wear glasses. I wear them as a fashion accessory and have done since I was a teenager, as they’re a stylish way of expressing my personality.”

Women look amazingly sexy in spectacles! They are a fashion accessory that will never have a trend’s end-date…partly because they are essential but also because you can choose your glasses like you choose your handbag. You want your spectacles to reflect who you are as a person and they say a lot about your style! So, choosing the correct pair for you is quite the difficult task. There are so many things to take into consideration including: your face shape, your hair colour, your hair length (and whether you wear it up or down) as well your complexion. It’s no walk in the park but the result can completely transform your look! Don’t believe me? Just take a look at these celebs that have stepped out sporting specs in style…

Here’s my question to you, dear reader…do you sport the spec style that leaves all your friends envious? If you do I have to give you a tip that you have to follow up on today! When I heard this news it brought me back to the days of wearing faux glasses to be cool and I wondered if I could do it again to enter this little ditty…
