Best Place To Become Bespectacled (2008)


My current pair came from my optician's basement in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Some little old lady in 1952 never picked up her prescription. My bejeweled frames are pert and pretty and precious, but I'm afraid of breaking them—or so I say, in order to justify my never-ending search for spectacles. But at the semi-annual (May and December) ALAIN MIKLI SAMPLE SALE, a lovely fellow named Philip helped me indulge my whim for luxury foreign frames. For $30 I got Bookish; for $40, Bizarre; and for $50 I got a boring beige pair to satisfy Bonnie (my mom). As it turns out, she liked the Bizarre.
