Despite not showing my face on Fashion Huntress, you may or may not be aware that I wear glasses. I’ve actually worn glasses since 2nd grade. For many years, I was actually totally embarrassed by my glasses (ridicule galore as a kid). So, I reverted to wearing contacts…that is, until I developed an allergy to contacts and was told I couldn’t wear them anymore by my doctor. Oh boy, readers, how I struggled with this news. I knew how ridiculous it was to be upset, but I felt like a kid in grade school all over again! A few years ago, however, I really started to embrace my glasses as an accessory and a part of my personality. I don’t show my face on Fashion Huntress because I like the vague anonymity, but I certainly no longer hide behind my glasses. I wear them proudly and embrace them. It’s funny how such a little thing can end up feeling so empowering as we settle into ourselves. I want to thank Firmoo for again reminding me of this process. I’m totally swooning (and seeing clearly) over my new glasses…

First Pair Free Program
There’s also a buy one, get one free promotion going on right now for the holidays. As you know, I do not ever accept payment for my posts. I did, however, accept the glasses and was asked to give my honest opinion. My honest opinion is: double thumbs up. I haven’t taken the glasses off since I got them and have had more people notice these new glasses than any pair in the past. Here’s a close up of the pair I chose:
First time wearer, long time fan!
2) This dress is clearly a summer shift dress! And you already know what I’m going to say, right, readers? Pull out your summer dresses! Wear them in the winter with sweaters and leggings! Since that’s not a new tip, I’ll also add that I’ve recently learned about Savers and am a huge fan. The prices are slightly higher than at Goodwill (by $1-$4), though the quality and selection are equal if not slightly better. Additionally, if you sign up for their emails, you will learn when they have discount days, which are often on Mondays. This last Monday, all clothing was 50% off. The shift dress was regularly $14 in the store, but I snagged it for $7 on the discount day. To find a Savers near you, you can visit their website at: http://www.savers.com/
