four-eyes

Perfect Autumn ensemble by pop pop portraits - found on etsy ( she looks like me)
My husband gave me the thumbs up on a new pair of glasses, well not the style, but the fact that we have money in the eye-glass department. So off I go for a new pair of spectacles.
Mis-match lady (Primary colors) found on etsy at pop pop portraits
Is it me, or do larger glasses look good again. I have had wire, tortoise, black, cat-eye, librarian, square, round, and now I am sort of excited by going a bit larger. Anybody out there have a favorite brand or frame of the moment. I found these ladies over here.
Glasses are just another accessory to me.

Good Morning~ I wear contacts, but when I want to rest my eyes...or just be lazy I have a pair of Norma Kamali's that I love as much now as when I got them two years ago. I hear glasses are the new fashion statement. So carry-on and dress those baby blues to the nines.

I think glasses are a nice accessory, it draws attention to your eyes. Can't wait to see which style you go with! Have a wonderful weekend!

I have mine on now but usually wear contacts. I am thinking about being more adventurous with a new style though!

oohh i love glasses too :) i have to wear them (or contacts occasionally) so i treat them as an accessory too. i recently purchased a couple of pairs and the dark rimmed, larger framed ones are banana republic. :) i really like them. have fun!

I don't need glasses yet, but have often wished that I did just so that I could change my look. My mother-in-law has the chicest pair of orange frames.

I don't wear glasses, YET, except sunglasses, but will probably need some down the road. For now, I just use readers when I need to really focus in on some detail work. These illustrations are adorable.

I wear glasses and have worn the same style for so long that they have rather become my signature glasses. I don't know if I could change them now!!

Ooooh - post a pic of your new glasses. I'm on the lookout for some myself and I'd love to see what you find. The drawings are charming!! Love the orange knit hat gal!

I wish I could wear contacts! I need a pair of prescription computer glasses at this time and plan to pick an artsy style in red or black. They are a great accessory!

Oh fun! I can't wait to see what you pick out. I think larger would be pretty cool.

I was 20/20 at 40, but years of desk-top publishing on a very small mac and POW there I am with glasses. I cheat. At this point I need only magnification, and I buy cheepies and leave them all over the house and in the car. When I need to go bi-focals, I'll get serious.

How cute. The top gal looks like you, but the bottom one looks like me! I just adore eyeglasses. I don't really need my glasses unless I'll be reading or looking at a screen for a long time, but I just adore wearing them.

For 2010 I received my first pair of bifocals. I knew it had to happen sometime...

I love shopping for new glasses! Kate Spade and Gucci have some that are cool, and then there's the Bellagio line. In the end, I went with frames from Revlon and (yay!) got lots of great compliments.

Will you show us what you choose?

I love Mr. Preppy Fox! And, just got my inaugural pair of specs a couple of weeks ago and I went with a classic Bvlgari tortoise frame. Snazzy but, still make me slightly nauseous when wearing...

Paul Smith - wonderful frames!
