I'm tryin' my hardest to get as many wears out of this fox sweater this winter as I possibly can. I have a pretty solid feeling that this will be unwearable next winter. Everyone (in the blogging world, anyway) will recognize it as "the fox sweater of Winter '12". Which is too bad, because it's such a cozy, easy-to-wear sweater. And maybe I'm wrong. Maybe next year it will be fashionable to wear out-of-style things. Maybe foxes will be in. Again. Hmm. Anyway.

Truth be told, I'm quite blind. I wear contacts a few days a week and wear glasses the rest of the time. You just rarely see my glasses on the blog because, as I mentioned before, I'm not a huge fan of them. They're several years old and just not what I want now. I'd rather have a classy, professional-looking pair of rectangular, wire-framed glasses, or a fun, sassy, trendy pair of bigger plastic-framed glasses. 

Needless to say, when Firmoo offered to send me a pair, it didn't take a lot of convincing. I am in dire need of a new pair, and Firmoo has a ton of adorable glasses. I've never ordered glasses online because it just seemed too risky, but you can upload a photo of yourself and "try on" the glasses on the website, which was super helpful in finding a pair that suit my face.

For being well under what I normally pay for glasses at the eye doctor, they seem to be identical in quality, if not slightly sturdier than what I currently have. And even though they may photograph similar to my other glasses, they're just sooo much classier and unique-looking in real life. The tortoise color is darling, and I feel so trendy in them. I was afraid the large frame would make me feel like a grandma, and I'm still getting used to how they look with my hair down, but honestly, I feel like the hippest lil' lady ever in these specs.

*Edit: thanks to everyone letting me know I kept saying "owl" when I'm wearing a fox sweater. I. do. this. all. the. time. There was an owl sweater similar to this one at the time I bought the fox sweater and I think I just have permanently confused the two in my head. Sorry for the confusion!


  1. wow. i commented on your instagram pic then a minute later I see this. DUH.

    just ignore that comment ;) these look so great, though!! I need a new pair of glasses SO BAD. I have currently wearing my glasses and they are missing an arm...so freakin ghetto it's not even funny! I will definitely check out Firmoo!

  6. Cute outfit! Loving your new glasses! They are so cute and perfect for you!



  7. I need to choose a frame that suits me and I found one that works. I noticed that rectangular frames suit me, but somehow look a bit too much.

  8. Errmm, I'll be wearing this exact fox sweater next fall/winter, so you know.. if you want to rock it with me, you totally can ;)

    ps. I really love your glasses as well. I kind of want a new pair, just to mix it up every now and then with my old ones!

  9. Love the new glasses. I also love those boots - the mid-calf length looks so great

  10. this is the taylor swift sweater! that she wore when she was first seen with harry styles! (rip haylor) you are so cute in glasses that i want to buy a pair for the little fox to wear so y'all can be twinsies. you should be a glasses model. you have the perfect look.

  11. I don't wear glasses but I have a pair of fake ones from Firmoo that I love! You look so pretty in glasses- jealous!

  12. I must have been in a spending ban when that Fox sweater was at ON or else I would have scooped it up! SO jealous :)

  13. This isn't a mean post. But I'm confused by this post. The title says "Owls" and you talk about an owl sweater in the first sentence but you have a fox sweater on. Love your blog though!! :)


    1. Ha, just realized that. I can't ever get foxes and owls straight. Fixed it! Thanks!

  14. This pair suits you well! So pretty :) I have a similar frame from Firmoo (fake ones) and aren't they great quality?! Love your sweater too :)

  15. Fab outfit! Love your hair, earrings, coat, and that adorable fox sweater. Love your blog!

  16. I was confused about the Owls too, I thought I was just missing something! These glasses look great on you. I recently ordered a pair from Firmoo so I'm glad to hear you are happy with yours!

  17. HAHAHA I was so confused because I saw "owls" when I first read the post (saw that you fixed it) and was looking all over for owls when a giant fox was staring me in the face. It sounds silly to get them confused, BUT I KNOW, GIRL. I get the weirdest things mixed up, like, November and February are always mixed up for me.

    Anyway, you look hot as usual. I wish I looked as good as you do in glasses 8)

  18. Such a fun top! I love this casual look!



  19. Yes, that is definitely a Fox. I want one or two of these Animal Sweaters myself. Hopefully Old Navy comes up with their version this year. Great outfit and such great, sexy glasses. Definitely keep them. I like the earrings too. Also, you look amazing with your hair up. Is that the sock bun?

    You have been MIA in my page, hope to see you there soon. =)

    Have a Great Weekend, Ada.

  20. Wow, I love that jacket! I can't believe it was only $17! I may have to snag one of my own. Also, I don't thing the fox will go out of style.. At least, I hope not. I think it's cute.

  21. Hi Lynette! I just came across your blog and I love your style! The boots are too cute, I completely forgot about Rue 21. I need to get over to the outlets!

  22. those look like the exact same glasses that i picked out from firmoo too! very cute!

  23. i love this owl sweater! it is so quirky and fun, it shouldn't have an expiration date! although maybe if i owned it i would worry about the novelty wearing off too so i see what you mean.
