Help Me Choose New Specs

in Primp

Ever since discovering that I can buy glasses online for hundreds of dollars less than at the eye doc, I’ve been treating them as accessories. I can finally afford to swap them as often as my moods change. I am currently browsing GlassesUSA.com for a new pair of glasses and I am torn between a few pairs. I’ve gathered my top four choices and I’m hoping you can help me with my decision :-).

So which frames should I choose? Keep in mind that the frames may be a little smaller than they appear on my face. After creating these previews with the Try-It Mirror on GlassesUSA.com, I decided to Google a few of the frames to see how they look on other people.

Jodi Brown or Masyn Black? I love the small rectangular shape of the Jodi frames and I love the vintage owl look of the Masyn frames.

Dylan Burgundy or Enrich Black? Again, I love the small rectangular shape of the Dylan frames. I also love the red color. They remind me of a pair of red glasses I when I was a little girl. The Enrich frames are different, kind of masculine with a nerdy twist. I’m digging those as well for days I’m feeling androgynous. After being subjected to countless nerd jokes, I’d never thought I’d see the day when it would be “cool” to rock the nerd look… on purpose. Society… le sigh.

So. What frames do you like the best? Have you ever ordered eye glasses online? What was your experience like? Get your commentary in as I will be placing my order in a week!

    I like Masyn Black and Dylan Burgundy. The others almost feel too conservative for a free spirit like you 🙂 But I’m also with Crissy on this one: They all really do look great on you!

      You girls are making this so hard. I’m probably going to end up getting a totally different pair, lol.
