  1. I just found out this week that I need glasses for reading. I have tried on a lot but I don't know what to get. My friend said don't go for the black plastic "emo" glasses because they look bad. But yet, I don't want glasses that make me look like an old man either,

    I'm also scared of colored glasses. There are some cute pink and/or blue wire Vera Bradley rectangular ones but I don't want to look like a DORK or old woman with odd colored glasses.

    I have a round face, pale skin, blue eyes, and brown/blonde hair :shrugs:

    What do you have?
  2. Hi! I have similar coloring and I have rectangular tortoise frames (Prada). I like them because they are a nice contrast with my skin and hair and look great with any color outfit/shoes/purse.
  3. I have a round face as well, but I have dark brown hair and light olive skin. I wear these Fendi's. I like them a lot and they are comfortable.

  4. I LOVE Pradas and Chanels
  5. do you have any pictures with you wearing them?

    Chanel is not sold in my area. THey do have prada though. However, I need to pick a style before I pick a brand! :yes:
  6. Black plastic "emo" glasses have always been good on me, relative to anything else. I just bought a pair of Norma Kamali frames that are black with b&w zebra print in a small bar on the side. At least now when I wear glasses, I'll have a fairly unique pair.
  7. I also have a round face, but it seems to me that it matters more what shape cheekbones you have. Mine are high and angular, despite my round face. So I picked up glasses that are angled in a similar fashion (oakley o-wires).

    Actually, if you can find oakley glasses that look good on you, I highly recommend them. Many is the drunken night where I have sat on these babies and they're still a-ok. Titanium frames rock my world.
  8. I went for emo-black with a twist, so I chose a prada which has a rectangular black frame with a light purple inside and a pair of Emporio ones with a white inside.

    It doesn't look emo when I wear them, just suits my face.
  9. Instead of black frames i'd go for tortoise shell! I just got a new pair of eyeglasses yesterday and am starting to really love them! They are a lot more glitzy than my old but a lot of fun :smile: My old ones are black, and the slight colour change is nice!

    Attached two pictures of my new glasses (they're by Ferragamo) and one of my old ones (Nicole Miller)

  10. I also have a round face & find Gucci fits meet my face the best, glasses & sunglasses
  11. I hope it isn't too late, but I finally remembered to take a picture of me wearing glasses. I usually take them off for photos. Please excuse the poor quality -- it's a webcam photo.

  12. I am thinking of getting a pair of Chanels. I have a really light pair of Silhouette frames. They are frameless and very comfortable.
  13. perhaps raybans? i love the classic aviators and wayfarers...or you can also go to Urban Outfitters for a cheap pair of these....for high-end sunglasses, i really love Oliver Peoples - IMHO, the quality of their frames and lenses (japanese) is way above Gucci/Chanel/Prada...and that's not to say that I don't enjoy my Gucci wraparounds but there's no going wrong with OP...
    here's a pic of Kate Moss wearing her OPs.

    karmita ;)

    now i see that you specifically asked about "reading glasses" and here i'm going on a rampage about OP sunglasses. okay, so now i must say that my brother wears OP reading glasses but i haven't seen their collection for women. As a member above mentioned, i'd recc. Alain Mikli.
  14. Whatever looks good on you- I have cheapo Puma wire frames because they looked best on me (not that I didn't drool over the Fendi's and Chanel's :drool: )
