I’m trying to decide on a new pair of glasses and I need help. I like both pairs pictured above.* The bottom pair are similar to the kind I always wear and the top pair I wouldn’t have given a second glance if the salesman hadn’t put them on my face. I am unusually drawn to them but a little voice is telling me I’ll regret it, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of their life.
And now you see why:
Still, my mother-in-law votes for the first pair. What do you think? Please leave a comment which you think suits me better. Getting both is out of the budget, hence out of the question.
*Reason number 18 why I love Switzerland: the store let me take both pairs home for a week so I can decide. Wow.
And now that it’s night and I’ve had a glass of champagne, here are two more pics to choose from:
The poll so far (from comments and e-mails):
Top (light colored) 5
Bottom (dark) 3
Thank you all for your votes (and compliments.) Last time I wore contacts was the 80s and my eyes rebelled with all sorts of powerful mucus which lead to them being sent off for a week to be cleaned (the contacts, not my eyes.) And due to a double astigmatism I had to buy some of the most expensive lenses there were. I’ve heard tale of disposables, but I’m not over my first failed experiment.
I chose the shape of these frames because they have a subtle angle along the outer edge, enhancing my heart-shaped face. I guess I cheated by not showing the whole face but there you go. I don’t pull off rounded and curvy so well (especially under my chin but that has more to do with chocolate than anything.)
