Do Glasses Make You Look Smarter?

I have a confession to make, an embarrassing confession.  When I was younger, about 20 or 21, I used to wear eyeglasses because I thought they made me look smarter and more sophisticated.  I didn’t wear them around the house or anything, but if I went out somewhere I always had them with me. You think I’m weird now, huh?!?

Now, these weren’t your usual prescription glasses or anything, but just normal glasses.  But obviously if there are glasses made for people who don’t actually need them, I can’t be the only one wearing them…right?

I no longer wear the glasses, but I still have them and just for kicks I took a picture of me wearing them for you. I can’t believe how much has changed and how different I look. I used to look smart and oh-so-cool, but now I just look weird. Oh, and excuse the fro and no make-up, it’s been a long day.

I’ve been searching for glasses online thinking maybe I should try a different style. Who knows, the next time you see me, I could be sporting a brand new pair of not-needed-but-oh-so-cute glasses.  If you are in the market for new glasses, use discount code mommy10 for 10% off your next purchase!

    I wouldn’t say they exactly make you look smarter, but I think they’re attractive. My boyfriend loves my glasses!

    Some people look better with glasses. It’s all about the look you’re after. I for one, am not a glasses person. They just don’t look good on me.

    I actually think you look adorable… I love GlassesUSA online, they have a terrific selection and great service. I got a wonderful pair of red reading glasses from GlassesUSA.
    I think you should get a pair for yourself to wear.

    Actually studies do show that people perceive that individuals wearing glasses actually do look smarter. Also people with brown hair look smarter than blonds, and people with curly hair are perceived as being less professional than those with straight hair. Interesting isn’t it? I always hated those studies as a blond!
