Glasses: Dior Homme
I was ten years old and the news turned my entire world upside down. After a routine eye examination the doctor casually told me that I had myopia and that I would need to wear glasses. I cried for days. That one sentence meant so many things: it meant having to give up the hope of ever being the cool girl at school (because cool kids don't wear glasses), it meant becoming that girl with the glasses instead of that pretty girl, it meant having something on my face at all times, it meant looking older and smarter, and I guess looking smart is not cool when you're ten. It meant being less visible and less important in a way. At least that was how I felt, and it made me miserable.
