Red-y Or Not, Here I Come + Firmoo Review


______Firmoo recently contacted me to participate in their Model Programme and sent me two pairs of glasses to feature here on the blog--both which are excellent in both quality and style, as they have been in the past.  I've learned that you can never have too many glasses, just as you can never have too many oxygen molecules.  Because really, what's life without oxygen molecules and glasses?  Nobody wants to be a zombie who can't see clearly--how would you eat brains?  You'd probably end up eating a tree, thinking it was a human, and that would be pretty awful for your zombie self.

______Thankfully, I don't have to worry about being a blind zombie, for my prescription in these glasses is spot on; thus, I can merrily smash these glasses on my face knowing they'll let me see.


______Those are the new pair of Jeffrey Campbell oxfords that my dad bought me a few weeks ago for scrambling about campus, and I'm glad to finally get them up on the blog!  Even after a day of running around like a decapitated chicken, these are still comfortable.  Plus, when I wear these, random people shout at me telling me how cute and adorable they are (and appropriately so).

______Oh, and along with the prescription glasses, the second pair of eyewear which Firmoo sent me were these pretty little sunnies.  They're quite sturdy and the shape of the glasses are perfected rounded and lovely.  The subtle gradient on the lenses is like a terracotta sunrise, so purply-orange and fantastic.


______Sorry to cut this post so short, but I've been as busy as a gold-sniffing pirate on the seven seas trying to finish the semester up.  I've got two more weeks until I'm all done--half of me is ready to get things over with, but the other half doesn't really care about the heat of summer and lazing around doing practically nothing all day.

______Though I will be taking a Biology II course twice a week and working at our neighborhood pool, I'll still have plenty of free time.  I feel so much more productive at college, and so to keep that productivity in full gear, I'll have to chalk up some ideas for art projects this summer, train an army of attack pigeons, and take over a tiny and uninhabited island.  Those three things are totally related.

______Summer 2013, here I come?

funky jacket!! :D

Joyce said...

HAHAHA that will be so unfortunate if the zombie cannot see. And now I just imagine this confused zombie gnawing on a tree really sadly because it doesn't taste good....but anyways, love your cool new shoes! So shiny and adorable. No wonder random people tell you that they are cute. Wow summer really is coming soon. But yay more time during the summer for your art projects. Can't wait to see what you come up with :)

Jessi said...

Those sunnies are gorgeous! And you look great in the glasses too! How exciting you get to be part of the model program. These shoes are beautiful! Jeffrey Campbell oxfords..what could be better?! oh and that necklace is amazing! Love the bit about zombies :) haha

Linda Greaves said...

Train an army of attack pidgeons...hahaha! Summer 2013 won't know what hit it. :)
These oxfords are just so shiny and adorable! I can definitely see why people would be complimenting them.
Also, super cute glasses! Firmoo has the best variety.
Ah, and summer can't get here soon enough. I'm taking one technical class (Medical Terminology, here I come) but my other two are fun ones (Yoga and Spinning baby!) that I'm relaly looking forward to.

Rory said...

Love the shoes! I work at the neighborhood pool by me too, lifeguarding is the shiz ;)

That red color goes great on you! Literally any bright color looks good on blondes if you ask me. Jkay not just bright colors you rock it all Ali m'dear.

Firmoo for the win, too! Cute glasses :)

Allie said...

Those shoes are EVERYTHING! I love them...and you look super cute in those glasses!



The Braided Bandit said...

You look great in both pairs of glasses! I have a bright yellow pair of Firmoo glasses which I love, but my bf calls me scuba steve when I wear them (and the name is not unwarranted..) YOUR SHOES, I am swooning! What a sweet gift from your dad they are gorgeous! Hope you had a good weekend!

Obsessed with those shoes, lady. Oxfords go with everything!!

Ashley said...

Ali! These are the cutest shoes ever and I want to steal this entire outfit because it's just so darn perfect! Plus, your glasses are awesome. I definitely would not want to be a zombie with poor vision. Huge bummer right there.

Marlen said...

Hahah yes, it'd be most unfortunate to be a blind zombie. Good thing Firmo is here to help those undead! I love how you look in both pairs! I don't need glasses, but i LOVE how readers look and i'm still on the hunt for the perfect fake pair. god i can't wait til that search is finally over

Love those oxfords. SO CUTE! Biology and working at a pool actually is a funny combo is you think about it. And your firmoo glasses are adorable on you. I got a pair in a giveaway that look awful on me, but then again, I don't wear glasses. I'm fortunate I suppose.
