time for a change

It's been over three years since I left California, which was the last time that I got new glasses. Of course, those glasses that I thought were so trendy and stylish in 2006, broke in half sometime in 2009. As a result, for the past six months I've been wearing my previous glasses (same prescription), circa 2004.

So, as the post title says, it's time for a change. I've been thinking about this for some months and really didn't want to make a bad choice. I knew that I needed a second opinion, and preferably not that of the guy working at the glasses store, or even another dude for that matter. I wanted an opinion from a woman that I knew I could trust...enter my friend Valerie who was willing to spend some of her Saturday helping me out. She did make me try on a few pairs that I would never (read never ever ever) buy. In most cases I obliged.

We also took my camera so that I could see what I looked like in each of the options once I got home. I'm considering going a little bold this time. I can't promise that one of these pairs is it, but its a good start. Let me know what you think...which option do you like best?

Option #1 - "Subtle'n'Bold"



















Option #2 - "Edgy Gunmetal"



















Option #3 - "Silver Bullet"



















Option #4 - "Tortoise and the Hair"


Option #5 - "Hingeless Wonder"

I like the first ones the best. They fit your face perfectly.

I'd have to say 1 and 2 look the best man. I just got new glasses over the weekend. I went with the Ray Ban Clubmasters... I love them, and it's not just because Malcolm X wore them.

#1 is the best, in my opinion; they look really good. #2 makes you look like an emergent church youth pastor and I will never take you seriously again. #3 looks like lab goggles. #4 is too bulky for your face & makes you look nerdy. #5 is trendy lab goggles for emergent pastors.
:) just my two cents. (when did they get rid of the cents key?)

Ha, ha. As I was looking, I said not 3, 4, or 5. So 1 or 2 it is! :) I think you have some strong frontrunners!
