New Glasses

My new glasses were so inexpensive via Costco and online, I got two pair, since I wear them hard with my frequent travel, commuting, and bedtime reading habits. Here they are:

Burgundy Glasses
These are burgundy wire frames, with earpieces inlaid in white pearlescent metallic. They’re more conservative, perhaps even a little middle-aged? Karen Kane from Costco Optical (awesome quality and service)

Brown Glasses
These are brown, lined with orange. The metal lower half earpiece is copper. They are striking and funky, but perhaps a bit retro and severe? Vogue from Frames Direct online (awesome service and order speed)

I’m working on trying to look more professional and feminine, need to wear glasses a whole lot more of the time now, and would enjoy hearing any honest and constructive feedback.

    Hmm…yea….ok…here goes…..
    I need to see them in person in order to provide accurate feedback! :D

    I like them. The square frames are best for you, I think, since your face is rounder. And I’m totally digging on the funky – I have several pairs of Vogue frames.

    I like the glasses. But I’m not the person to ask when it comes to fashion sense. :-)

    I love the second pair, with the copper…I am in the market for new frames this fall and think I may need to funky-it-up a bit. From the pics, I say good choice!

    I love them! I love the second pair! I have a copper pair that I should wear much more than I do. Ok, so you guilted me. I am now wearing my no line bifocals, and amazing what I can see! :-) We are going to have to check out Costco. We spend a bloody fortune on eyewear between the two of us. This year we spent well over $1200, and that was after the eye insurance portion of the deal. Ugh.

    Both of them look good on you. I agree with Janiece, though – the rectangular frames look best. I’ve got funky rectangular frames that I LOVE and I never thought I’d look good in funky frames.

    Thanks, all, for the input. I was very pleasantly surprised w/ Costco pricing, although I would have liked a bit more selection. The online option, though, while the speed of shipment was fabulous, was actually a little more expensive w/ the progressive bifocals, lightweight no-scratch lenses and anti-glare coating.

    Interestingly enough, most of my female friends like the latter pair – and most of my male friends (who didn’t vote via blog comment, but otherwise) preferred the first pair. Hmm. No idea why, but food for thought.

    In the final analysis, I don’t dress to please anyone, men, women or fashion police, and I’m perfectly happy with looking like an idiot (or not) all by myself. :)

    I like the first pair. Does that make me a closet guy? :-) I like the contrast between your hair color and the burgundy of the frames.
