::choices::

Ok, now we've managed to pick a new President (whoohoo!!), we can get on to the important decisions like helping me pick out new glasses. My vision has gotten worse and I think I'm going to have to break down and wear glasses all the time now. So I have to be really happy with them. I went to the fancy-pants frame store and tried on 8,642 pair and these two were the best. They let me take the frames home to get opinions.


So: A
It's hard to tell in the photo, but these are olive-green-ish.

or B:
These are tortoise-shell and more cat-eye.
Please ignore the fact that both pair are a bit crooked; apparently one of my ears is three inches higher than the other. Also, disregard frizzy hair. It's suddenly that time of year when you must moisturize 15 times a day or you begin to resemble a crone.

Anyway, what do you think, A or B? The girls at the frame store went bat-shit crazy over one of the options, also the one I like best. But I'm curious to see what YOU think.

As always, I reserve the right to blatantly ignore your vote and choose the ones I like best anyway. But thanks for playing!

I've worn glasses since I was 12, so I've had a little experience selecting them. I like choice B. They add a little more whimsy than choice A.

I love my girl Betsy up there, but I have to disagree and vote for A. You could do a cats eye, I think, but I feel like those are, perhaps, too wide.

Or not, and they are fabulous, and you will love them forever.

oooo, thats a hard one. I too have to go with 'A' although I think 'B' is cute too... buuuut... 'A'.

I like B. But I went to a place here in Boise where they have CHEAP glasses and ended up with glasses I love for a mere $53! I'll never go back to frames for $250!

Number A!

A is the best frame for your face and a bit smaller but the frame is too dark and too prominent. B frame is lighter in color. But too wide, covering too much of your face.
Can you find A shape with thin frames. ?
But you look so cute in glasses.

Robyn said...

Yes, what Dee said. (Yeah, I'm voting again. But hoping you wouldn't notice. Crap, did I jsut draw attention to myself?)

I like B best....you do look adorable in both so it won't really matter which you choose. What does Hubby think? SZ

JACKI said...

cats eye, because you have killer cheekbones and the cat's eye knows that.
