Boys don't make passes at girls who wear GLASSES

...what a crock! ;) 

I don't wear my glasses nearly as much as I should, and I don't like sticking contacts in my eyeballs unless I absolutely have to (snowboarding).  

I was just thinking of Marilyn Monroe's character in "How to Marry a Millionaire" (which she's hilarious in, by the way - you must see it).  She never wears her glasses because, as she claims: "You know what they say about girls that wear glasses..." - as the saying goes, "Boys don't make passes at girls that wear glasses".  So silly, isn't it?  

Anyway, she spends the film running into walls and even gets onto the wrong plane at one point!  Good for her though, because that's when she meets a man that wears glasses that tells her: "Are you kidding!  I think you look better with them on!"

Not that I'm saying you should require a man's validation of course, but it was still pretty cute. 

I'm trying to figure out how I can get myself to wear my glasses more, and I think finding a more fashionable pair would help.  I think my glasses are kind of boring - they don't make any kind of fashion statement, and all they seem to do is block the eye makeup that I take such time every day to put on!  Lame-o.  

This is Taza from the blog Rockstar Diaries!  Her blog is super cute (as is her little girl), and she has an amazing sense of fashion.  I just LOVE her glasses - they are my favorite by far!

This is another one of my favorite fashion bloggers - Andrea from Blonde Bedhead.  These girls find the best glasses, I'm tellin' ya!  They're not just there for function - they wear them as a fashion statement!  Love it!

The rest of these pics I found on www.weheartit.com (because that's what I do)! 





As you can see, I'm kind of in love with the big thick-framed glasses right now.  They seem to be all the rage, but I just love how they really stand out!  Super fun and cute.





I know what John would say.... "You hipster".  Ah well, sometimes I just don't listen to John. :)
And I love love LOVE this photo of Amy Poehler that I found on Girls with Glasses!!  Super cute website by the way, you must check it out. 

Now I just have to figure out a way to get myself a new pair!  Hmmmm.... 
PS - for the record - a lot of boys DO make passes at girls that wear glasses (and think they look super cute in 'em)!
