I lurves my new glasses. Yes, they look strange, but they look cooler than you can imagine on moi. The sales girl said she kind of cringed when I picked them up because everyone who has tried them on looked hideous in them, but that they looked daring and stylish on me. So, either they are beyond fabulous on me, or I just have the brass ones to go out in public looking that stoo-pide. Take yer pick. My take is magnificence, and I'm sticking to it.
Having narrowed my top picks down to 3 pair, there was this Dolce & Gabbana, a fabulous red pair of Chanel at $369, and a super-sweet Bvlgari in red plastic with sparkly crystals that I thought HAD to be the ones.
So, I flummoxed and finally elimated the Chanel out of the group, leaving the Bvlgari and the D&G. THEN I saw the $869 pricetag on the Bvlgari. That's just the frames-- no lenses, baby. That was a red-letter day. First time I've ever actually been more IN LURVE with the cheapie, which was about a quarter the price of the Bvlgari. Just went online, and found them for HALF what I paid for them at Lenscrafters. However, if I'd ordered the RILLY cheap ones online, then I wouldn't have had a store full of stylistas cooing and aahing over how fabulous I looked in them. That's part of what you're paying for. NOT that I needed someone to tell me I looked flawless in them.
I'm not blind, you know!
