I’m like a different person now. 2 weeks ago, I bought a new pair of glasses. The glasses had to be placed on backorder (stupid place didn’t have my prescription in the teal transitions lenses i wanted! wah!) and I didn’t think much of it. a week later, i went to get my hair cut and recolored. i was planning on staying with my trademark red hair, but i decided that i need a change. so, i had my stylist dye my hair light ash brown with dark ash blonde highlights. i kept my hair’s style the same, i just had her clean it up.
so last night, i get a call that my new glasses are ready for pickup and i head out to pick them up. i try them on, have them adjusted. they’re cute. i like them. but i’m wearing contacts so i can’t wear them out of the store. i don’t think that much of it and i head home.
this morning, i decided to wear my new specs. why not! they’re a new prescription (yay! no more headaches!) and my contacts have been such a pain in the ass to deal with. i fix my hair, slab on my teeny bit of makeup, get dressed and throw on the new glasses. still not realizing any changes.
it took me catching the reflection of a little bit of my new frames in my car’s review mirror as i’m backing down my driveway to realize that… wow! i’m like a completely different person now! add in the middle eastern style eye makeup i’m using (brown powder Kohl eyeliner applied to the bottom rims of my eyes) it’s all smoky and sultry and sexy…. and the blue make it alt and indie, which is so me anyway. heck when i tried on the frames for the first time at the glasses place i go to, the sales staff all said “wow! those are so you!” and meant it and they had never met me before. i guess going by my quirky interaction with my mom, they could guess that i’m a bit left of left.
the new hair with the new, blue, glasses and awesome new makeup changed my personal style so dramatically. i’m not sure how to deal. catching my reflection in the windows and mirrors here at work can be odd, and taking pictures of the new me was even stranger. i keep thinking who is that killer hot chick?… oh it’s me! yeah… weird thing to think. i also have this urge to go and buy new clothes too. i don’t need anymore clothes! so i’ll just knit them instead. hehe.
Update: i went out and bought new clothes last night! hit up a few sales and got some cute Bermuda shorts and pedal pushers and some t-shirts too. this summer i’ll be wearing shorts. now that’s a change in look b/c for the last 5 summers i’ve been wearing skirts exclusively in the summers b/c the shorts just got too short for my tastes (i like to keep my ass in my pants and i hate my thighs, i want to keep both covered). i’m digging the longer length shorts and they’re so my style. they look excellent with my Chuck Taylor low tops.
it’s so fitting b/c recently, i had a quarter-life crisis and decided to change my life for the good by going back to school and trying to follow a dream that was placed on hold. so having a new image (glasses, hair, makeup) really makes sense.
oh and my eye doctor is totally sexy! every time i see him, well something deep inside goes “squee!” but he’s so cool. he laughs and jokes around and is very sarcastic. i love it! eye exams aren’t that comfortable, but this guy makes it kinda fun!
oh and i needed new glasses b/c my vision got, get this, better!!!!! yeah. even the doctor was shocked. so i have new glasses in a weaker prescription and the headaches i used to get while wearing my glasses are now gone! yay!
and in honor of my new look, i decided to update my blog’s presentation and theme. how do you like it so far?
