glasses, glasses

glasses glasses

It's been two years since I last had my eyes and sight checked, not that I've noticed any significant deterioration (touch wood) but it's good to have it done anyway. Some of the glasses are a bit worn too (now that I never use contacts anymore) and it would be nice to get one or two new pairs. I still love my dotty pair and if I get a new pair I really want them to be in the same style, only another colour and/or pattern. I think my favourite optician smarteyes has had a grand assortment - alongside really pleasant staff and service and of course unbeatable prices - but admittedly I was rather disappointed when I popped by the other day to check out their current models (haven't booked an appointment with the optician yet, just wanted to check what's on offer). Unfortunately this time I found most of them rather bland and boring, not really what I was looking for. The retro style-section was very small, the lack of cool patterns obvious - cow pattern glasses where art thou?

There's also a current ad campaign featuring a Swedish artist showing off glasses from smarteyes and one of those models are simply adorable, oversized Harry Potter-style. Obviously I wanted to try them on, but was met with a "hm, I don't know, perhaps we haven't got the delivery just yet, but our other glasses in that style you can find there and there..." from the staff. And no, no other glasses where in that style. I suspect those glasses in the ad campaign will never be sold in the shops, only featured in the campaign. Nuisance.

After looking around the shop, trying out lots of frames, discarding 95% of them as boring, unflattering, wrong or ugly I ended up with two possible pairs in this section above. Can you guess which pairs?

Are you going to tell us? I like the third pair down on the left hand side, and then the bottom pair in the middle row. But glasses are certainly something that you have to try on...

Hummmm, a game! Purple/Bright Pink and Red! So, what did I win? (grin)

My guess is the purple pair in the third row down and the black or mustard pair on the top.

I think I remember purple not being a favorite of yours. I am guessing the green and yellow ones in the second from the bottom row,and the blue ones above them.

I was going to say the green and yellow ones too, but don't know about the second pair.

I need my eyes checked, haven't had it done in over 3 years and I'm squinting over everything now. Never have worn glasses before, which might be why I'm dragging my heels on this. LOL.
