What I Wore // The Rene Ropas Fashion Show

Yesterday night I was lucky enough to show my jewelry in the Rene Ropas: Dollhouse Prom Fashion Show.  My new fashionable friend Jeremy was so kind in inviting me to participate.  Thank you Jeremy!  We met at the Fremont Market, which I sell my jewelry at every week (as of 2 weeks ago.)  He has a fabulous collection of ties and always stops by the booth that my friend Mandy and I share to scout out Mandy's latest vintage tie finds.
Anyhoo, the show was so wild.  I'll have to post pictures of it in the next few days.  The lighting was amazing and the models had some pretty wild get-ups that were illuminated perfectly with the glowing neon lights splashed around the space.  More on that to come...  I played it a little more subdued in my outfit styling since I was going to be back stage for a good portion of the event and because I was going to be there for quite a few hours prepping for the show.  Here is what I wore!

Let's get real here people.  I wear these glasses everyday.  I only take them off to take outfit photos :)  Reason I wear glasses everyday:  I have worn glasses everyday since I was 14.  Wearing contacts while I try to work at my computer all day, everyday, or while trying to focus up close on jewelry making makes my eyes really hurt so I just stick with glasses.  I am near sighted which means I can't see far away.  Also, nerds rule.
These are just generic prescription mens (because my head is huge) glasses I got at Sears.  They get the job done.

Ps, Autumn is here today!  I think my outfit is color appropriate for the changing of seasons :)

If you ever want to upgrade your glasses, I'd recommend Cutler and Gross. They are expensive, but I found really excellent square black framed glasses that fit my (also) big head- and I still get compliments on my glasses two years later.

Oh,and I love your outfit too!
