Thanks. My skin is extremely pale, I'm talking lily white. Dark brown, almost black hair, and blue eyes. I'll post some better pics in this thread in a little bit. What do you think of these Oliver Peoples Rydell model? Too light for a pale complexion?

Since you are in NYC, pls check out Morgenthal Frederics - they have real horn tortoiseshell frames (that cost about $1K before lenses are added in...) and nice plastic tortoiseshell as well (about $300 for frames alone). So does the much-maligned Oliver Peoples (tho' only in plastic).

You know, I always thought they stopped real tortoiseshell trade due to a law, but doing a quick research on google I found that a sale can be made as long as there is certification by an organization, which verifies that the product was made before the law became in effect (during the 70s.)

Either way, it's incredibly expensive. I'm just going to have to find a plastic one with a pattern that doesn't look cheap and..... well, plasticky. I'll make sure to give Morgenthal Frederics a stop someday.

Forgive the bump. I just had good purchasing experiences at Morgenthal Frederics yesterday and today, and I was curious to see what reviews I might find online; Google turned up this thread.

As it happens, the frames I purchased look a lot like these, though the temples don't have that slight flare and ornamentation on the end. I'm not even sure who makes mine I think maybe they're sold under M-F's own name? I really appreciated the fact that they didn't even bring up designers' names to me and really spent a lot of time trying to put me into the right frame for my taste and purposes.

What is "real horn tortoise-shell?" It's either horn or tortoise-shell, the latter being appreciably more expensive than $1000. Meyrowitz's site listed a pair of blonde tortoise-frames for 7000 Euros.

How about this one?

I have a pair of persol sunglasses that I wear with clear lenses as a normal pair of glasses. I have gotten a lot of compliments for that, not that expensive either and better made than a lot of fashiony brands out there. My second pair is from Look, an Italian eyewear company that makes nice glasses. A gold frame with round classic lenses, very lightweight and versatile.
For sunglasses I have the Ray Ban aviator and wayfarer fitted with prescription lenses. (in gold with grey lenses and tortoise with brown lenses.)
