Favorite Accessories

My newest accessory happens to be reading glasses.  It was humbling to notice how reading was becoming a struggle.  More light was needed, a different distance was needed....  Then the realization that maybe my vision is changing with time.  Blech!   

When visiting the optometrist, he said my eyes were healthy...  for my age.  (That's not a very nice thing to say!)  He gave me my number * 1.25 * for reading glasses.  They are surprisingly affordable.  It is wonderful to read again without trying to telescope my arm. 

So, here's my newest favorite set of accessories.  (Well, yes, of course I bought more than one pair.)

Purple Frames, Kinda Round, Sorta Cat Eye
 


Small Wire Glasses, Square




Hmmm... Yeah, well... Moving on...
Frameless


Brown Ones with a Thicker Frame


So, the whole time I was snapping pictures, Ivan was beggin' to be held.



He's the sweetest little snuggly guy. 
I know.  I know.  You don't want to talk about glasses anymore.  You'd rather talk about Ivan.


Me, too!  He is half Rat Terrier and half Chihuahua weighing about 9 pounds.  He LOVES to be held.  So, I guess Ivan is my favorite accessory! 

If you'd like to give an opinion on the glasses, though, that's cool, too!  So, what's your favorite accessory?

  1. I love the first pair you are modeling. I've been on the hunt for glasses because I should wear them all the time, but I just haven't found any I'm in love with. Unfortunately I'm just past needing that 2.75 magnification, so OTC's won't work pretty soon.

    Your dog is cute!!

    1. Hi, Jean! I was dreading the whole glasses thing, but once embraced they aren't so bad. I guess that's true of just about everything. When you choose your glasses, please model them for us! ;-) -Marci

  2. You look great in glasses. My goal is to someday be able to afford more than one pair...but my Progressive lenses are expensive!!
    My favorite accessory I think would be scarves...I just have trouble leaving them at the store! Have a great week, Marci!

  3. I really like all your new frames, Marci - and I esp love the last ones, the brown, thicker frames. You look stylish and hip, and now reading will be a breeze : >

    Ivan is just adorable and very photogenic!

  4. You look great in glasses. I have worn them all my life, so they feel like a part of me rather than an accessory. I'm like Pam, I need a spare pair, but wow, progressives are really expensive!
    Ivan is a cutie patootie! Sometimes I wish mine were small enough to be picked up and cuddled.
    My favorite accessories are probably bracelets. I feel kind of naked without them.

  5. You are so right, all I wanted to hear about was Ivan! So he is NINE pounds? I can't imagine. My dog is about 110 right now, with 20 pounds to go. I would never be able to pull him off as an accessory like you did with Ivan. :-)

    1. Oh, my! A 130 pound accessory might be a little too much! ;-) Thank you for visiting! -Marci

  6. I remember going in for an eye exam and the doctor saying something like your "right on time" for reading glasses and he was speaking about my age! Otherwise I still have 20-20 vision, so I just buy them at the $ store and keep them anywhere I might need them. All of yours look good, although my fav is the first pair.

  10. I can't wait to wear glasses. At my age I need them sooner than later. I wear the ones from the dollar store! I always misplace them cause I don't need them all the time.
    I think glasses are a great fashion accessory and you look great in them.
