Outfit Of The Yesterday: It Was A Dark & Non-Stormy Night (+ Tom Ford Cat Eye Glasses)

♫: Your Rocky Spine – Great Lake Swimmers

…meh.  I hate cold and cloudy days.  And it’s the worst when it doesn’t even snowit’s just cold and cloudy just because it can be, like Mother Nature’s equivalent of sticking her tongue out. Blah.

On a happier note (if you follow me on Instagram you might have already seen a sneak peek of this), I  finally found settled upon some new eyeglass frames. I am notoriously horrible at going to the optometrist with any regularity, but I’m also as blind as a bat and am about (two years past) due for my (very regular) three-year eye check-up.

So I decided to finally grab the Tom Ford 55mm Cat Eyes that I had been lusting over for the past year (style number: FT5224) (I am unsure of their proper name, or if they even have one–but I think they most mimic the Nikita sunglasses in shape):

{v-neck from j crew, old; glasses from Tom ford, here; necklace from Forever 21, here}

I really like them. Husband really hates them.  Too bad–they are really light, comfortable, and big, which is great for all the times I go speeding down the stairs at 100mph and miss half the steps because I can’t see. Perhaps Husband is just sad that he will no longer see those spectacular times where I bravely decide to wrestle with gravity, lose, and tumble down the stairs into a big pile of mortification, and/or laughter, and/or tears and/or all-three-at-the-same-time. Or maybe it’s because I it seems that I cannot make a normal face while wearing them (as properly evidenced above). It’s hard to say.

But I am keeping them, and making faces while wearing them, and throwing them out this weekend to get some proper lenses put in; Team Four-Eyes for the win.

And with that, here’s the rest of the outfit.  Have a good weekend, you guys!  ♥

    You crack me up! How often have I done the very same thing?! Stumbling around blind as a bat! I have astigmatism, but I’m still in denial. I refuse to wear my glasses unless for reading/driving/computer work/watching tv etc. Wait, I guess I wear my glasses more often that I thought! But anyway, I think I would wear them all the time if I had cute glasses like yours! I just don’t like myself in glasses. I need lasik ;)
    Love the jacket and emerald pumps. Beautiful colors together!

    don’t worry…it has been YEARS since i’ve been to the eye dr. like YEARS. i can see clear as day up close (at least i think so) but i can NOT see distance AT ALL. and i NEVER wear my contacts. oh, and my cat decided to chew my “seeing eye glasses” (that’s what i call them) so the lenses are ALL scratched up. so yeah, i need to see an eye dr. or optometrist. lol. LOVE these glasses on you. =)

    I love this outfit…it’s a bit feminine Dick Tracy :) You could be slinking around all incognito with the hat just shading your eyes, solving mysteries, all the while looking super chic!

    Hello, fabulous!! Those glasses are amazing. That’s all.

  • Annabelle

    I just bit the bullet and made the optometrist appointment myself (largely because I’m almost out of contacts). Does there exist a really flattering pair of glasses for my face out there somewhere? I guess we’ll see…
