Thank you, thank you, thank you! Even if you don't want to support the corporate monsters that are Luxotica and Safilo, simply go to a McOptician* and see what shapes and colors look right on you. Plus, how you wear them on your face affects optics such as seg height placement. I tried to tell people this in the last eyewear thread and some guy insulted me...
