I need a general consensus. I hate ordering frames from the ‘net. They’re all within a couple milimeters of a pair that I currently sport, so they’re all essentially the same size. At least I know they won’t be too big or too small on my face. We’re going for aesthetics. And I wear them for work (reading, computer, etc) so I kinda like them to be a little funky/different b/c i get bored if they aren’t cool. But i’m not exactly artsy cool….make sense?
What do you like? Also included is a picture of my face, NOT cuz i’m all self absorbed, but to give you an idea. It’s the only one I have that a) isn’t wedding related and b) is a day to day shot of my makeup and hair on a daily basis. All colors are representative, except the top right…I’d want them in tangerine, not grape.
My husband just said, "dude, they all look the same". Gah.

3rd times a charm

Oh they do not look the same at all – thats why it was good you came here!
The pic of your face didn’t load!
My fav’s are the top right (and actually they are very similar to mine in shape) but i love how the are thicker in the outer upper corners! And I actually really like the grape colour – I am not to sure about the tangerine!
EDIT: your face is up – and i still pick upper right
One suggestion I found when looking at the thicker rimmed glasses was the colour that was against your face mattered! I found that ones with darker on the back looked more heavy on my face and stood out more due to the shadow’s formed! Mine look identical to the upper right and they are plum on the front with a light pink on the back which makes them look softer! So you might want to try a few on at a store so that you get an idea of what you like!

I actually have scarlet red ones right now. I find that colors look best…anything too dark clashes with my blonder hair. I thought orange would be like the red ones. And, my husband really loves orange. It’s funky =] I’m worried the plum is too dark tho. Maybe not. Hmm.
I’d love to try them on in store. I can’t locate them here, though, so I’m flying by the seat of my pants. I’ve had these crappy red Covergirl ones for YEARS in red…time to upgrade!

I like the flaring… or w/e you want to call it… look of those to the right.

I picked bottom left because the coloring would look so lovely on you. Once I read that you’d go with tangerine instead of grape, I wish I would have picked top right! Tangerine would be a fantastic color for your skin tone/hair/eye color!

I like the top right best, especially if you go for them in tangerine. I think the bottom right are my 2nd choice.

thanks! I think the tangerine is really funky…kinda thinking those are the way to go. I think they’re a little cheaper too….I wonder if the thicker sided ones like the pink ones would almost feel like sunglasses too much? ha =]

i like the ones on the right side (top and bottom). i’m a big fan of colored glasses – that way if you’re lazy to put on makeup, etc you’ve still got some color on your face (for those days when you’re lacking sleep and vitality!)

I like the top right ones. I just went and picked some out with the husband (he actually ended picking out the ones I got) and they look very similar to those and are in a wine color. I call them my Sally Jessy Raphael glasses. I love ’em. Anyways, I think they’re cute and I think orange would def. be super cute.

I like the purple ones, the colour would look good with your skin tone, the black ones might be a bit stark in contrast. I own 7 pairs of spex, all different 😀 they’re like shoes for me!

First of all, you’re gorgeous. Girls named Emily usually are though, right? 🙂 I love the top right. They wing up which I think would really compliment your eyes. Definitely go with a bright color. I sometimes wish I wore glasses, they look like so much fun!!
