I can't afford them yet, but coming up in the next two months I'm going to have to get new glasses. Because it's finally dawning on me that though I have four pairs including my sunglasses, I haven't actually bought a pair since before 9/11. Making my lens prescription...old. So...yeah. Oops!
Since I keep my frames for eight or more years and never wear contacts and frames are only supposed to be worn daily for 1-2 years... might as well get a new frame to spice things up.
Oh, and Jose at the wonderful store Gogosha is going to make me a "face of the day", which will be a nice little plug for The Commune!
Lets see what you think of the choices. You've never shopped with me before, so here are the rules:
No labels. Impeccable cut/fit and materials. I like a story behind the item (All but one of these frames are handmade in Toulous by citizens who only make glasses.).
The unbreakable rule that requires some looking: it has to be pretty/lovely on me.
The last criteria is more open-ended and fun to interpret. That's to find a personality match: bold, soft, easy, chic.
That's me in a nutshell; everything I buy matches the above or it can't be on me. Now you get to vote on the pix:
(It is me fresh out of the shower with wet hair, sans makeup or bra...Though I enjoy dressing up, this is my most frequent look for working at home/rolling out of bed. If my future guy partner is out there grooving to authentic me, then hey, we should talk...Oh but also, please imagine my eyebrows are plucked and have that Selina Kyle arch going like they do here.)

Whaddya think? I can only get one :(
I don't want to influence you with knowing the prices. Right now I have a frontrunner, and it's the cheapest! That's a first...
