i've had my current frames since 2004, but because i usually only wear them before i go to sleep or on a lazy weekend, i haven't felt the need to buy a new pair. while i was back in minnesota, ben and i stopped into a frame store and tried on a few hundred pairs, just for fun. big, dorky, colorful and colorless plastic glasses filled the shelves. surprisingly, the more i laughed at them before i tried them on, the more i actually liked them on my face. I couldn't decide which ones i loved more. the middle of these vintage specs remind me of the big green frames my sister wore in middle school. i wonder if her prescription has changed.
