I am a couple years shy of 30, and I finally had to get some glasses. I have been blessed with good vision my whole life, and even now I have 20/25. However I have noticed some issues with night driving the last few years and decided to try some glasses. Since, I have never worn prescription glasses in my life, this has been an adjustment period. I don't have to wear them all the time, but when I do my eyes are not used to them. I often get nauseous or headaches, because I try to look at things close up... so I'm learning.

In other news, I was pretty obsessed with these polka dot tights that my girlfriend let me borrow.... and then I put not one, but TWO runs in them :( I feel awful about it and I rushed out to buy her another pair. I hate borrowing clothes and then messing them up. I don't think she'll really mind, but I hate when that happens! Why do they have to make tights to delicate!?! Luckily, the runs are not visible in these pictures, so enjoy!

When I first got glasses, they were only for driving and for reading text far away; I always hated wearing them because my eyes would feel really funny, etc. Now, I have to wear them all the time.

Dang girl! I'm miserable at thrifting, and I can't tell if it's because thrift stores in my area aren't that good or because I'm just a curse. This definitely makes me want to try again! That blazer is diiiiviiiine. Visiting from the IT List!

A great way to style ripped polka dot tights is to layer fishnets (holes optional!) over them. I tried it years before playing roller derby and thought it looked cute, but now I'm surrounded by women who layer fishnets over ripped patterned tights on a regular basis and I grew to really prefer the style. There's a bit of an edge, but the pattern balances it out.
