New glasses

Today I picked up new glasses that I ordered last week. Between ordering and picking them up, I had doubts. I thought they might be too warm-toned, but I'm happy with them. I will still wear the round ones in my profile pic, and I'm also having a current prescription put into the teal and plum ones I got several years ago with Angie's help. Just a note: I don't think the frames look as wide IRL as they do in the photo; selfies seem to distort the image quite a bit. These are actually children's frames!

    The new eyeglasses look fab, especially with your new pixie cut, Sharan.

    Shopping for glasses is tough, but you nailed it!  I like the round ones in your profile pic, too!

    LOVE! Not too warm toned at all. Beautiful shape!

    Where did you get them?

  • Karie replied 8 months ago

    I love them! I really like that white part along the top. They look great on you!

  • Jenna replied 8 months ago

    Those look so good on you!

    Thanks, everyone!

    Angie, thank you for the affirmation. I got them at 4 Your Eyes Only, in Wallingford, which is also where I got my round ones. When I came in last week wearing my round specs, the optician recognized them and knew them by name. She asked me about what I was looking for, my preferences in materials, etc., and then pulled all the narrow frames for me to try (well, maybe not ALL of them). She had a lot to choose from. She knows they are hard to find, and she tries to keep a good selection of them in stock. "You can find wide frames anywhere," she said. Ha!

    Karie, thank you! I think what you see as the white part is actually a light, brushed gold; the frames are a combo of metal and acrylic. I like the subtlety of light gold finish.

    I love them on you! They are gorgeous. I love the detailing and the "lift." Really nice on you. 

  • Tanya replied 8 months ago

    Great hap and very flattering on you, especially with your haircut.  I also like the teal & plum pair.

  • Bijou replied 8 months ago

    Gorgeous and sophisticated, a beautiful colour and fit. So wise of the optician to cater to narrow faces.

  • Joy replied 8 months ago

    I like these and the sparkle added to your face by the gold toned metal. .

  • Firecracker replied 8 months ago

    Thank you all!
    Suz, the optician notices lift, too, which I appreciate.
    Thanks, Tanya. It will be fun to start wearing the teal pair again.
    Bijou, thank you. It's so nice to have someone just pull the ones that will fit, too, so I don't go around the shop finding a bunch of frames that I really like but that won't work at all!
    Thank you, Joy. These are going to replace my black-fronted frames, which look so heavy in comparison.

  • Xtabay replied 8 months ago

    You found the perfect pair!  I love them.

  • Janet replied 8 months ago

    They’re excellent on you!

    I can relate — I have to limit my searches to the smallest available widths, small head problems!

  • Katerina replied 8 months ago

    The new glasses are very beautiful and suit you perfectly. I love the colours as well as the shape on you. What a great choice! 

  • Firecracker replied 8 months ago

    Thanks, everyone!
