When I heard this week’s theme of what we would wear to a bookstore, my brain converted it to library, which I guess is better than “shopping on Amazon in my pjs”- another viable direction for me to take this post.
I decided the bookish theme was the perfect opportunity to debut my faux specs on the blog. I’ve always liked the idea of wearing glasses, although I’m sure it will drive me crazy when I start needing readers in coming years ;) Don’t get me wrong- I know the ol’ 20/20 vision has come in handy over the years, but I have secretly coveted glasses since grade school. I was however blessed (sarcasm…) with crooked teeth and never had to go the fake retainer with a paper clip route of my elementary school friends- a real retainer was never far out of reach for me.
dress: birthday gift from my mom
shoes, scarf: thrifted
When I do make it to the bookstore, I love looking through design books. This book, Naive: Modernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design, was an xmas gift from my inlaws last year and is an amazing source of inspiration.
What good books have you read lately? I need some recommendations please!
Well, there you go- I managed to turn a What to Wear to a bookstore post into mostly talking about glasses and retainers. What to show us your bookstore duds?
