That happened 6 months ago. Weeps.
To be totally honest, I don't love wearing glasses. I read and look down a lot and they fall off, they leave those weird little marks on the bridge of my nose and most touch my eyelashes. I much prefer contacts. That being said, I understand the importance of a good pair of glasses.
On to the embarrassing story of 2016. About 3 weeks ago when I was getting ready, I reached into my drawer for contacts and realized I had one left eye contact left. I have different prescriptions in both eyes, and I have two eyes, so one contact did not work. I literally looked everywhere for a contact. Maybe I left on in my makeup bag? Travel bag? Workout bag? Nope, nada. I am unfortunately not one of those people that can go without glasses. I cant see far away, so the whole driving situation would be a little difficult.
I was going to have to wear my crooked, sideways, bent glasses to work. Oh, and I had three hearings that day in federal court. Talk about humiliating. I didn't even post this on snapchat I was so embarrassed. I didn't tell Coti. I didn't tell my mom. I went to my hearings, took off my glasses when I was in front of the judge and faked it until I didn't make it. I tried my hardest not to squint, but I'm pretty sure the judge could tell something was up.
It was then I finally realized I needed to bite the bullet and buy new glasses. Where do I go for new glasses? Warby Parker ladies and gents. The genius behind Warby Parker came from the idea that glasses were too expensive. Genius. The best part - for every pair of glasses you buy, they make a donation to cover the cost of outsourcing glasses, eye exams and give more frames to people who need them.
