I loved Angie's post on "four shortcuts to a more current style." Since I wear glasses every day, I wanted to be sure mine were current and reflect my individual style. I decided to swap out one pair that I wasn't wearing. They weren't dated, but I just didn't reach for them, or I'd put them on and then change to a different pair.
Here are the new glasses I chose (1-3): teal on the sides with amethyst over the teal on the front, by Face a Face. I love them! I feel the shape, size, and color suit me so well. They feel integral to my features, rather than something I'm adding on to my face, if that makes sense. Do you agree?
For reference, here are the others I'll keep in rotation:
4: round brown and metal by Kenneth Cole. These are/were my go-to glasses, easy to wear, blend with my features and coloring.
5: brown metal frames with crystal sides (sorry I didn't get a shot of the sides), by Caviar. These are my dress-up glasses or the ones I wear when I want a more minimal look.
6: small cat-eye in eggplant, by Kala. These are my oldest but I still like them. I feel they give me a kind of prissy look, perhaps.
And the ones I am replacing:
7: tortoise and green by Michael Kors. I plan to turn them into sunglasses.
Thanks for looking!
