#OOTD: Eyeglasses & Entomology (Feat. Harper & Blake)

There are a few things most people don't know about me: One being that I wear [and love my] glasses, and the other being that ever since I was a small child I've had a fascination with insects. So last year when I had the opportunity to partner with Harper & Blake (formerly Iconemesis), it should be no surprise that the phone case I chose to review had bugs on it! And I figured what better way to showcase the cover (and finally do a write up for this long over due review--sorry girls!) than a trip to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and check out some of their entomology exhibits.

The Phone Case

As I stated earlier, last October I had the opportunity of partnering with Harper & Blake when they kindly sent me a very fashionable phone case. As much as I wanted to post this sooner the whirlwind of the holidays caught up with me and it sadly got pushed back until now! However, I have to say this might have worked out for a better review because even after using the case for the past few months there are hardly any signs of wear and tear!

The reason why I chose this phone case is because it was so different than anything I've had to choose from here in the U.S. I just loved Harper & Blake's adorably quirky and unique designs. So it's safe to say, from now on this will be the only shop I'll be purchasing phone cases from!

Just in case you're curious here are a few others that I have my eye on:


The Specs

"Men seldom make passes, at girls who wear glasses."  Sorry Ms. Parker, I beg to differ.

All throughout my late teens and now my early adult life, my peers have always questioned me as to why I don't just get Lasik surgery. Well the answer, as silly as it may seem, is I'm honestly attached to my glasses! I mean, I've needed them since I was in first grade and have actually worn them since second, so through the years, I've totally learned how to rock them.

This brings me to my gorgeous pair of Havana Striped glasses by Avalon. I've had these babies since my sophomore year in college, and out of all the pairs I've owned over the years, these became my all time favorite. The reason is due to their pretty caramel, dark coffee color and their light subtle pattern, it makes them easy to pair with everything. These also just have such a sleek and classic shape that even in today's nerd culture, I still feel as though I have my own style identity, without looking like I've succumbed to a teenage trend that I refer to as "grandpa" glasses.

The Outfit

My outfit for my afternoon at the museum was just a simple black dress, paired with a scarf as a belt and some black rounded toe heels. This look was comfortable enough to walk around the museum as well as stylish enough to head to a nice dinner afterwards.

One Last Look

So, do you have a favorite Harper & Blake phone case design? Do you need to wear glasses? If so, do you love them or hate them? I'd love to chat, so tell me about it in the comments below or tweet me about it at @StarkRavingChic!
