New glasses


I ordered new glasses recently-- one pair from the optometrist, and two from cheap online places. One of them showed up today, and I can't decide how I feel about them. This is why I have friend who will give me an honest opinion, right?

Poll #1510463 do the eyes have it?

How are the glasses?

Love them!

I like the general shape and style but think they're too big for your face.

Too strong/dark for your features.

I don't really hate them, that's too strong a reaction, but I think there's better styles out there for you.

I really like the shape of them Patti! That part is perfect.

I'm more of the type that likes a more invisible frame (thin and silver-ish colored) type of stuff so that I feel like I can really see a person's face and eyes. I don't think they are terrible at at all. It's a lot of contrast for your hair and skintone to feel like I'd get a good, genuine look at you.

Great photo of you btw.

I think the dark frame coupled with the wide shape of them don't match on you. They look too big and it stands out. Not sure how the shape would look with another color.

BTW Betty Tannenbaum is an awesome person to go shopping with. She is brutally honest which is a good thing when you are shopping.

Wrong size for your face. Since your face is roundish, square frames are the right shape, but they need to be smaller and less chunky.

Yeah, this, I think. "Hate" is a little too strong, but there are very few frames that would actually make me use that word, and I'm a lot closer to hate than love.

it's a bit further towards the buddy holly style THESE ARE MY CHUNKY GLASSES kind of look than i'd expect. and they seem a bit wide for your face. so, it depends on the look you're going for. if you're going for an unobtrusive kind of "i'm wearing glasses" thing, then these are a bit much. if you want to draw attention to your glasses, these are okay for that.

and if you're going for the 1970's elton john look, you are far *far* too subtle.

i am not a fan of the dark frame style seemingly in vogue these days...

Frame is a bit too big and takes away from your features. Have u checked any of the Prada frames? They are a bit smaller...

Why aren't you wearing pink or purple glasses?

Actually, they are purple. Just a really really dark purple.

They obscure the laugh lines around your eyes, which are especially wonderful on you.

I like them a lot but think you would wear them for only certain occasions since they have a more "studious" look to them.

They just don't work for your face. You can do so much better. :)

I don't "love" them, but think they look good.
