More than a Hill of Beans: Eye Candy

For those of us who are blinder than bats (because they’re not actually blind!), I’m happy to think that glasses can be classified as ‘cool’ and ‘trendy.’ After buying my first pair of reading glasses this week, I decided that today’s “More than a Hill of Beans” should be all about some stylin’ frames, like the $195.00 Betsey Johnson's pictured above!!

I don’t need Tina Fey or Elton John to tell me that glasses are cool; I’ve been wearing glasses since third grade - of course they’re cool!  Unfortunately, my last visit to the eye doctor scored me some even thicker glasses…but at least I got new frames!

I also have been getting headaches for a while working at the computer…not very good when I sit in front of one practically 8 hours a my Eye Doctor told me to try out some reading glasses. Here's the cheap drugstore pair I picked up:
(I'm thinking Meg Ryan in Sleepless in Seattle.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, watch it. I know you'll love it.)

I shopped online for some cooler reading glasses, and I found the $195.00 glasses above, as well as these more affordable frames.  What do you think??  They're a lot smaller that I thought I would be and I can still return them...So your opinion counts!

Or what maybe these frames by Goo Goo Eyes  from

  1. i love the new frames! also think the reading glasses are cute - the ones with the blue bridge are the best. though it looks a bit like you wrapped dental floss around the bridge or something!
