I've been wanting some more glasses. Here are the options so far. Three tortoise, one clearish blue. Excuse the retard blow-up doll expression, but it's a straight forward picture of me. I can get more than one.

With Glasses:



Without Glasses:



This is what I have now, but I never wear the circular ones because they're gigantic.

If i may ask, what is that page you are using? It seems like one of the better ones for trying out glasses.

I've ordered from them before. So have others I know. It's really inexpensive. Just make sure you look at all of the specifications and images before you order. The pair I ordered before was a tad narrower than I expected.

Thank you.

And in my opinion regarding your glasses.

I would skip the blue ones, or any other that are strong colors, i do not think that i have ever seen anyone really pull it off. It is also hard to make a solid outfit with so strong statement glasses. Especially since you appear to be a bit more grown up.

I also think that #230825 are abit too much tortoise. I would go with either 1 or 3 out of these four. But then again, i am also quite conservative then it comes to glasses.

Thanks for the input. I'd wear the blue ones rarely... a lot of italians are able to pull that kind of stuff off! :\\

Thanks! I would like the circular frames to work, but they might be a bit too conservative for me. If they were slightly smaller I'd wear them more often. It looks different from other angles too.

Three, by quite a long way.

I would also say choice #3. And +1 for using Zenni.

From left to right: go with the third one and forget about the fourth. Good luck--it is a pain in the ass.

1 or 3 are both a pretty good look. Definitely not 4.

Thanks for all the input... yeah I've pretty much ruled out 4. 2 is beginning to remind me a bit of Hamish Bowles, but more feminine. 1 and 3 look good to me too. 3 oddly reminds me of Conne's glasses.
I think I'll get 1 and 3.

Well, I bought 1 and 3. It was only $50. Thanks for the input everyone. I'm not really happy with any of the pairs I have now, so I hope these'll be better.
