I never hopped on the Warby Parker train. I know its glasses are affordable and cool and they look good on everyone, but to me, they all look so strikingly similar. And if you want a different look, or something flashier or brighter or a new shape, you're really out of luck at your local optometrist.

I wear glasses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I can't see two feet in front of my face without them, and recently have started purchasing more than one pair because, hey, if you have to wear something every single day, you really need a back-up plan.

On Instagram, however, I found the answer to boring frames on the face of a blogger I follow, who was wearing a rebellious pair of shimmery specs from the Canadian company BonLook. It features a plethora of frames from $99, but my heart belongs to the Amaze frames ($99) in Champagne. Gold seems like an odd choice for eyewear, but it matches a surprising amount of hair and skin tones. The clear background of the frame makes it accessible to all clothing styles and aesthetics, too.
