Embrace Thy Inner RDJ + Ozealglasses


______Ozealglasses sports a slick range of carefully selected prescription eyewear, sunglasses, and even biking shades (holla!). Their hand-picked brands lend a modern twist to traditional styles, with thick frames, luscious colors, and dreamy silhouettes. Their brands include, but are not limited to, glasses from the nearly-futuristic Human Skull and pumped up vintage specs from Ospirit. If those aren't your style, then take a gander at their wooden glasses and embrace your inner woodland fairy. There's really nothing that compares to wearing wood on your face.


______I ended up choosing these snazzy tortoiseshell frames by Human Skull and adding a pink tint to them. You can choose a variety of tint colors (eg. pink, blue, orange) and shades (eg. light, dark, sunlight sensitive) as well as picking from a plethora of frame options. I love how their tints are actually vivid opposed to extremely desaturated colors; I've always wanted some sunglasses with rosey lenses that are actually pink, not a gray color that has a touch of washed out rose in them. I'm very tempted to purchase myself a pair of purple or amber tinted lenses in the future...

______But like I was saying, their website definitely offers tons of customization. Even if you don't see a pair you like (doubt it), you can get your inner artist on and create your own. I spent way too long toying around with potential glasses combinations and messing with their virtual webcam try-on. Next stop: customization central, choo chooooooo! That was cheesy. Sorry.


______I had Robert Downey Jr. in mind when I was making these... The man has a tendency to wear fully rimmed glasses with hue-licious tints in purples or blues. Not that I'd know much about his style or anything.

______But I would, actually, because I'm a people creeper.

______(ahem) Yes, so if you're looking for some special new specs that are high quality, long-lasting, and customizable to the max, look no further! Ozealglasses is here for ya. Guys, I would honestly pick these snazzy shades over a new pair of Ray-Bans any day. Their quality and customization is astounding, plus their customer service is helpful and efficient to the max. These came in the mail under a week and a half and they were custom. Hot damn. I'm in love.


______In terms of my week, it was fan-flippin'-tastic! I won an art scholarship even though the competition was super fierce this year (there were three times as many people as there have been in past years, and friends I thought would hands down get scholarships did not). One of my college goals was to obtain an art scholarship for every year I attended the university, and I can now proudly say that I have done that!

I love these glasses on you. The tortoise shell frame is so beautiful. Super stylish. You have such a talent for making fabulous outfits and I am impressed by how good all the elements of your looks always go together. I am particularly drawn to your pretty dress.

I can't even describe how obsessed I am with this outfit! Love the textures and colors, and you definitely have an eye for accessorizing! :-) I can imagine these photos to be in a ModCloth catalogue for some reason, hehe.

AND YES, FELLOW RDJ FANGIRL HERE. I'm not going to lie, I completely fell in love with him after seeing him first in Iron Man, which then convinced me to watch the Sherlock Holmes movies, where I further became enamoured by his beauty. I swear, he's like wine... he gets better with age! ;) Love the little RDJ vibe with your glasses... super cute! I'm sure he will appreciate it too!

You've got such a wonderful blog! :-) I would really love to follow you, but for some reason, my GFC hasn't been working lately so I am unable to follow people sadly! Hoping we can stay in touch! ♥

Congratulations on your art scholarship! That's awesome! Meeting goals is da bomb.

Also these glasses are so cute. I love the rose-colored lenses! I love how they basically mirror your outfit. Everything here looks like it was made to be paired together. Plus you're rocking the socks and oxfords combination, as you often do. I need to wear more socks in outfits for real.

Congratulations on your art scholarship. As for tinted frames, I've not tried that yet. I wear eyeglasses quite a lot, so I will have to try it out. Beautiful outfit, you look lovely in pink.
