Here is my outfit from yesterday, much inspired by this post over at Vintageglammz.
I had a bit of a glasses disaster yesterday. As I was taking off my glasses to go to bed on Monday night, one of the arms completely broke off (as in the metal holding the hinge together broke in two). Not a big deal, right? Well, when you have no back up pair, and you cannot see 3 feet in front of you without the glasses, it is pretty much disastrous. I got up yesterday morning and pretty much held my glasses on my face so that I could get to my optometrist's office. They unfortunately could not fix them, but did tell me about a glasses repair shop that I could try. Once the glasses repair shop opened, I drove myself all the way across town to see if they could help. Yes, they informed me that my glasses could easily be fixed and that it would take about 14 hours, so I could just pick them up the next day. That is all fine and good, except HOW AM I GOING TO GET HOME? Without my glasses, I pretty much can't even see how to get out the door, much less drive a car! After a long discussion, I found out that the actual repair takes 2 to 3 hours and the rest of the time is just for the material to dry/set up. So, I talked them into doing the repair and letting me take the glasses with me so that they could dry/set up at home. Poor Ben had to ride his bike all the way across town in the pouring rain, so that he could drive me home (I was thinking that I was not going to be able to wear the glasses immediately). We waited for about 3 hours and then my glasses were fixed! They said that the repair went well and that they were dry/set enough for me to wear right away! I have never been so happy to put my glasses on! After going most of the day without being able to see, I realized just how much I love and appreciate my glasses!
