I wear glasses since I was 9 years old. It's not that I had a great opportunity to escape, the whole family of my mother wears glasses. It was my brother or me. In reality, I like them. It's true, I'm so used of them that practically I don't notice my glasses anymore. But it would not be me, without glasses.
I've had 6 pairs. Usually I change them every two years, two years and a half.
The first were transparent plastic, how it was common at the time, in the early years of the century. On the computer I have no photos of my first glasses, but they were like the second, except for two purple stripes where those were blue. (please have mercy on my clothes, I did not know what I was doing!)
During the first year of high school I changed the style and decided for black, Dolce&Gabbana, if I remember well. I felt so great with those glasses, as if they gave me an adult air, as if I didn't continue to show 12 years old for most of the time.
In 2008, I think, I bought my first Ray-Ban pair. And although I like them, after a while I began to not bear them because all of a sudden it seemed that everyone had the same glasses.
And the same happened with the next pair, the dear, black Ray-Ban with whome you have seen me until now. I bought these one in November 2010 and in a couple of months almost all the people around me with glasses had black Ray-Ban or similar ones. It's so annoing, when it happen, isn't it? But mine were (and still are, actually) a little bit different from the others, because they are white on the inside with red words. And I think that they suit me. I will always be found of these glasses. With them, I take the driving licence, finished the high school, take my diploma, travelled to Barcelona, Vienna, Madrid, London, Oxford, lived my first year of university, cut my hair very short for the first time. And if this seems of little importance, consider that those glasses are on my face in all of my photos of the last two years.
Since last summer, a lens has begun to spoil so my optician sent them back to change it. And entering the sotre, my mom and I fell in love with these glasses. They are new, less than three weeks, and they still look strange when I'm in front of the mirror. What do you say? Do you like them?
