I got two (2) pieces of these as little gifts from my boss, Mamu Isay. She came from a cosplay convention I wanted to attend - she made it there; I didn't. LOL. I was too overworked so I didn't get the chance to visit. *sobs* She went there with her whole family anyway - and her kids enjoyed it hehe, And now I'm luvin the gifts.
I found it weird initially, as to why these glasses actually don't have glasses at all. It's blank ... it's just a hole. It's a plain glass frame. I didn't even know what these glasses were called until I saw it trending on Facebook from several other otakus and younger cosplayers ... mostly teens. Then I realized ... ahhhh! It's "uso" or "in-style" ngayon hahah. Wow! Didn't know my boss now is up-to-date with these stuff - event kiddie fashion statements. LOLZ.

When I first wore it; I thought twice. Of course, I'm no longer a teen hehehe. I'm in my 20s yes, but I work in a corporate environment lah~ So this might distort my "image." LOL. But ... fuhggedaboutimage shiz! Just cracking' this fashion item doesn't mean I'm whacko right? Haha!
When I first posted this pic, my friends were teasing me - that I looked like a little kiddo. Haha. I was just trying to match the look and feel hehe. I think it's appropriate for kids in the younger generation though - so I seldom use this. No offense to Mamu, hehe. I just think it suits a much younger audience.

But admittedly, this piece is definitely a good find. I've seen a post about it from HawaiiKawaii.net and it's uber-loaded with cuteness! It's aptly called Hello Kitty Eyeglasses because it's made in the form and likeness of the ever popular Japanese Sanrio iconic character ... Hello Kitty.

I like this one because the frames are actually ballpens too and I can use them in the office. More function, ei? Smart! I guess I used this pink, animal print, with grey whiskers glasses more than the other more regular type that I got hohoho~ I love the color pink so it matches a lot of my outfits hehe, like this one; my Sandy Tokidoki top. Ain't they such a pair of cuteness? Plus the one wearing them? Ehem! That's me! LOL.
And look at that ... I just said "animal print" - Hello Kitty is a cat ... an animal! Such redundancy! Wahahahaa!
Okay ... enough of that silly thought! (^_^)
I searched in google for Hello Kitty Glasses and there are tons of pages and pictures that popped. Most of them are really cute model-pics or those ulzzang / uljjiang girls. My photos above can pass as "uhljang" right? Bwahahaha! Dream on! Anyway ... I was trying to find a wiki or a page that defines it or its origins. I couldn't find any. I guess I'll leave it at that hehe.
My other pair is equally likeable though it's simpler. It features just the regular black frames and a pink polka-dotted ribbon.
I did wear it in one of our more-casual days hehe. Actually, I think it's fun to bring out the kid in you some times, without hesitation. After all, we're all kids at heart anyway. And as for me, I'm still young anyway. I don't have to pretend to be old just to keep up with the "image" hehe. Of course, I still know the "border lines." I don't need to cross that lah~ Just keep my fashion sense intact and the kid in me at controlled levels. LOL. Still tamed like kitty! Yay!
CHAI'S VERDICT: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ (4 Stars!!!)
Overall, I love it still. (^_^) But they won't be part of my dailies or staple styles. (^_^)
How about you? What do you think?
