New Glasses!

Yesterday I finally got around to renewing my prescription so I can purchase a new pair of glasses. Here's a little preview of them. I'll post better photos when I can get good daytime lighting again. I got tired of the sleek and narrow styles and decided to go with something different this time around. I also didn't want thick frames, as they hide too much of my face. The frames are a tortoise-shell pattern up close. They're slightly nerdy, but not over the top. Opinions?

I think my pants need some ironing.

I love this outfit - you pull off the short, rolled up pants very well. About the glasses, I think I like them, but I personally like to see the bangs on you...
Either way though you have a great look :)

I actually like your hair tied back, it opens up your face and looks fresh :)
I really love the glasses! They have a somewhat vintage style to them, no?

I love the pants, but I think your hair looks better down. I see it has reverted to winter where you live, too.

Great glasses! I recently had my prescription renewed and was surprised and how bad my glasses were for my eyesight before! xx

Awesome pants! I need to know where I can find glasses like yours! Are they vintage?

Anonymous #2: You should sign your name so I can properly address you :) These glasses are Burberry. They definitely have a vintage feel to them, which is why I was to attracted to them in the first place. I found these at Lenscrafter's, so if you have on of those around, they'll probably have these or something similar. It was slim pickings though.

DO you ever NOT look amazing?! fabulous outfit!

oh very nice. wow. beautiful proportions. i like the frames too - you managed to get ones with substantial size (i don't like petite glasses), yet they do not obscure your face at all. mission accomplished.

I think the glasses suit your face beautifully. It's not like a lot of people can pull glasses off so well, but you're definitley one of them.

I adore your outfit as well by the way, and the pants look fine even without ironing. :)
