I think I like my "ugly back-up glasses" and won't spend money on new ones yet. The ones I'd been wearing all the time had been the free ones of the "buy one get one free" deal from six years ago, and I'd never worn these expensive ones. I took people's advice from the comments in this post where I showed off the glasses, and plucked my eyebrows (and even put a tiny bit of eyeliner pencil on them) and wore eye makeup today. That helped, and they made me look more professional. I went and bought some new clothes (at Ricki's, with their lovely end-of-season sales) and decided that I'm happy with these.
Even better, I discovered that I don't actually need a stronger prescription: it's just that those other glasses had gotten all scratched up. Since I've never worn these for any length before, I can see through them perfectly.
(Still, I'm going to miss those glasses. I really like dark-rimmed glasses, and my face feels so naked wearing gold ones that blend in with my skin and my hair.)
