Usually when we go out to a club, it’s something we’ve been planning for at least a few days. We have quite a drive to get to any venue that hosts Goth-friendly events, plus I’m particular about which ones I’ll go to. Once in a great while, though, we’ll get bored on a Saturday evening and head out to whatever club might be available, without having planned to do so. Wearing my glasses to a nightclub is usually the result of such spontaneity. My eyes are a bit sensitive to contacts, so in order to wear them more comfortably I soak them in a powerful cleaner between each wearing (I only use them on weekends, and even then only when I *really* am going for full-on Gothic splendor). Sadly, this cleaning process takes 6 hours, so spontaneous dancing means dancing in glasses.
I don’t really mind so much, because I do find glasses attractive and I feel the various frames I currently own suit my face and my style incredibly well. Although the blurry peripheral vision does always throw me off a bit on the dancefloor at first, since I’m not used to it!
How do you feel about glasses when dressing up? Do you think they detract from the glamour?
