Hello all, how are you surviving January so far? Has anyone joined me in suffering a bout of the post-Christmas blues? One thing that did perk me up yesterday, as it sunk in that I would have to go back to work today and could not, as first thought, survive on Christmas cheer and Qaulity Street alone, was the arrival of my Firmoo glasses.
Last month Ron ran a competition to win a Firmoo voucher and a week later I checked my inbox to find that I’d won, which is the first time I’ve ever won anything online, woop!
Now, the slight flaw with this is that I don’t actually need glasses but had just commented saying how pretty Ron’s were. So, in lieu of finding a willing family member, I panicked and ended up opting for a pair of ‘geek chic’ glasses with non-prescription lenses.
I know, I know, it’s all very hipsterish isn’t it, but what can I say? Curiosity got the better of me. With the excitement of Christmas, I completely forgot about them until they landed on my doorstep yesterday. I decided it was only fitting to wear an appropriately hipster outfit to match said glasses, which, it turns out, was the most comfortable outfit for a lazy New Year’s Day.
The denim shirt is from Next, the cream jumper is from Topshop and I found the cable knit leggings at a clothes swap. The legwarmers were a cheeky sale purchase from H&M last week, and the boots are a pair of old Primark ones that are in desperate need of re-heeling.
I’ve since developed a strong urge to style myself up as a librarian, but if all else fails at least I have the perfect accessory for an Austin Powers costume party…
So, what do you reckon? Can I pull off the bespectacled look?
