As you may know, I work in a shop that sells glasses. Recently, my boss asked me to write a blog post for her website about glasses and my obsession with them. Check out the blog here and read the blog post below! XO
|My current frames|
I have always wanted
glasses; my parents wore glasses, all of my favorite book characters wore
glasses, Clark Kent occasionally wore glasses- they were cool and I wanted
them. My wish came true when I was ten years old. They figured out that the
reason why I couldn’t pass an English test, but was reading college level books
was because I couldn’t see the board to take notes.
I finally had my
first pair of glasses! I was so excited because I could read street signs and
big bulletin boards. However, my frames were horrendous. They were small, this
weird purple/ brown color, and they didn’t fit my face or my head AT ALL. I was
constantly pushing them up my nose and peering through the tiny frames.
When my parents
figured out that I wasn’t really a contact person, my mom decided to take me to
her nice glasses store so I could get some good quality frames. That was when I
met Becky and I was blown away. I was twelve by this point and thought Becky
was the bee’s knee. She owned her own store and she got to bring her dogs to
work! Plus, like all of my other heroes, she wore glasses.
I was sold almost
immediately. My first pair of glasses from The View were pink. And not a pale,
quiet pink, but hot, punch you in the face pink. They were absolutely marvelous
and I wore them for years after. Since that first pair, years ago, I have continued
to be a loyal customer of The View. Going down to 327 S Elm now feels like
returning home. Whenever I am home from college, I always go down to The View
to say hi and just to hang out. I now work at The View part time, but I am
still blown away by new frames every day and I always leave a summer at The
View with a new pair.
Whether you have
always been obsessed with glasses, like me, or not, there is no excuse for bad
glasses. They are probably the first thing people see when they meet you. If
you are willing to spend hundreds on suits, shoes, and outfits to make a good
impression, why wouldn’t you want to spend the same on something that not only
helps you see, but sits on your face? Go see Becky and start to make an amazing
first impression every time.
