ain't that just the sweetest dog evaaaa??


i read a blog post on bangers and mash, lopz was talking about her new pair of sunnies that's skew... and it made me think about my own sunnies problems...


my process...

(the way i talk you'd think I'm an artist)


  1. break old lovely adorable wonderful irreplaceable sunglasses...

  2. cry for a week...

  3. pull myself together...

  4. start the sunglasses hunt...

  5. cry for another week...

  6. start hunting again...
when i at last have 10 pairs that i like, this is what happens:
  1. put glasses on face

  2. look in mirror

  3. smile

then it happens...99 out of 100 sunglasses literally lift off my damn face!!! it's my ears... when i smile my ears lift... mwhhhhhhhhhhhahahahahahaha how absolutely ridiculous but still...

  1. smile
  2. liftoff
  3. not so pretty...
  4. argh
so to find sunglasses that stay put on on my nose when i smile... THAT pair is a keeper ;)

I feel your pain. Buying sunglasses is a terrible experience. I always think I look like a fly when I try them on.

does anyone get a thrill out of sunglass shopping? I know I sure as hell don't ... and I also don't wanna be the person anyone takes along with them when they go sunglass shopping - I don't have a clue if they look good or not ... sigh.

jane: i had no idea other's had the same problem!

jacks: LOL you look like a fly? not likely ;)

philly: hehe... my mom always says the top of the glasses are supposed to be level with your eyebrows... in her mind that makes all the difference… does that make any sense? LOL

Argh I hate buying sunglasses - they always bash me in the cheekbones or bop the eyelashes on ONE eye - why one eye? It's not like I have a deformed face with uneven eyes. I never know if they suit me and my best friend gets the giggles when I ask her opinion.

omg you have GOT to show me that! i've never seen that happen!!! mine always sit skew too...

leez said...

I don't thik its the ears. Those huge sunglasses sit on your cheeks so are boostd when you glimlag. at least that what happens to me.

sweets said...

charm: mwhahahahahahahaaa ... i have ear liftoff and you have an eye that wants to pop out... apparently :)~

angel: i will entertain you anytime... seriously funny, it's one of my party tricks LOL

leez: LOL no i promise you it's my ears... i've tested this... when i glimlag the ears go up... i have magic ears, i can move them too ;)

Have you tried... Ray Bans or Oakleys? Or have an eyeglass care professional adjust them? I'm not sure if the more inexpensive sunglasses can be adjusted, but brands like Ray Ban, Oakley, Ralph Lauren, or any known brands can be adjusted...
