Time to update the look!

Back in April I wrote a blog post Glasses – Geek Chic Glam!  The popularity of this post made me realise that us chicks really like to wear glasses.

Now, it’s time for me to update my look, and over the last couple of weeks I have been out and about trying on lots of new frames.  I had the urge to go for what I pretty much have already, playing safe.  But that’s no way to update a look!

From what I can see, big glasses, particularly black or tortoise-shell seems to be the current look. I thought I would instantly know which to go for, but I’m loving quite a few.  It hasn’t helped that my hubby also likes them all, so with not having the budget to have a different pair for every day in the week – I think I need your help to narrow my choice down!

I haven’t costed up any of the following, so we are purely selecting here on style!  

1. Karen Millen – I quite like these ones – my current pair are Karen Millen – so is that boring!? 
2. We forgot to take a photo of these Gok Won glasses – I liked them but the Tortoise-shell was more burgundy than brown
3. Ray Bans Black – I really liked these a lot until I tried option 4!
4. Ray Bans Tortoise-shell – I like the shape and they suit my hair colour
5. Prada (I have no idea of cost – I was too scared to look at the label! )  These are my favourite, but I think I might get bored of these quickly – and will they go with everything?

So my lovely readers – help me out here!  Either leave a comment or cast your vote on the poll in the right-hand menu.

    The Ray Bans in black really suit you! If not those then the Pradas x

    Ray Bans are the best – difficult to pick the colour as I like both. From those photos I would say the black has the edge x

    I like the black raybans or the first karen millen ones, but then I'm a little biased as mine are karen millen haha 🙂
