I have worn glasses nearly all my life, and now that I've made the switch to contacts, I find myself unable to wean myself of my former self-image, and have taken to wearing vanity frames (which is not all that uncommon in L.A., truthfully). Â My current pair are by Pro Design, a Danish company, and I like them very much, but I am contemplating getting a high-quality pair of frames made into sunglasses. Â I spoke to my optometrist this morning, a woman who's professional and sense of (eyeglasses frames) style I respect. Â She has changed my mind on several occasions, and I have regretted doing so in only one instance of many. This morning, I had gone in with the idea that I would want a retro-style, dark, rectangular titanium frame, and would get a pair of blue tinted glasses. Â She showed me the following as an alternative: http://www.oakley.com/ostore/prescription/rx_o_wire/ I am seriously thinking about getting these frames. Â My reservations are that they are too sports oriented for casual city use. On the other hand, I like the X-games vibe. What do you all think? I'd appreciate your comments and opinions.
