Red Specs


one hundred and twenty

My very first pair of glasses were bright red. My fifth grade self thought they were pretty smashing. I don’t think I even knew who Sally Jesse Rafaele was until after I started wearing them!

I haven’t worn red glasses since, until yesterday. After a long search, in which I tried on scads of too big, too hip, too young, too wiry, too rhinestoned sunglasses, I found this sweet little red pair.

Turns out my fifth grade self and my now self have pretty similar taste in eyewear!
