I don't really enjoy spending money. In fact, it makes me rather anxious. Plus there is the fact that Pat and I are saving for a new car, a new laptop, and our block leave vacation just to name a few really big and expensive things.
Yesterday I had my eye doctor appointment and was even able to get over to the optical center on post before I had to get the kids from daycare. I knew they were very expensive there, but I had seen a lot of glasses that looked promising for being "the pair".
The few pairs that caught my eye in the other days I had stopped in the store just weren't right for me. The pairs with the wide sides, which seem to be in style right now, just look and feel kind of silly on me. I wish I could pull off something that is trendy, but I think I'm just more classic. So I wasn't left with too many options that actually looked good, but there was one pair that was perfect. I knew they were expensive, but I liked them, I'll wear them most of the time, and they solved my black/brown dilemma on frame color.
All that said though, as I was paying for my new glasses that cost a LARGE fortune, I couldn't help but second guess the purchase entirely. Do I really need new frames? Should I really spend this much money on them? Can't I find cute cheap ones?
In the end, I'm justifying it with the following thoughts: I wear the glasses most of the time. I want a pair that makes me feel good and confident. I want them to look nice. They'll last a few years.
Oh and in case you were wondering, these are the glasses I bought.
Do you ever have buyers remorse? Ever have it over something as silly as eyeglasses?
