in which i am indecisive… and very self-involved


so about six weeks ago i ordered five pairs of prescription glasses to try on for free from warby parker… but none of them passed the test for me to actually spend $95 (still, you can see my favorite pair of the first batch here and here).

now my current glasses are scratched and bent and in need of replacement… so i ordered five more to try on! finally, inspired by calivintage, i thought i’d take some quick shots and poll all of you: which pair do YOU like the best?

is it the tenley?


is it the beckett?


 the sinclair?


the begley?


or the huxley?!


what’s a gal to do?!

so? which do you like? cast your vote in the comments, and i’ll check back to let you all know what i decide. hee!

by the way, it was very weird to take photos like this. i had to a) appear somewhat normal (despite my self-consciousness), b) avoid the glare in the glasses (that’s why i’m never looking at the camera straight on) and c) try not to feel stupid with B in the room. as you can see, he finally got to me by the time the huxley pair came around… probably for the best: real smile > fake pursed-lip-face.

    I’m not sure what I think of this new trend of cute young women wearing frames my grandpa used to wear (but then again, I live in the boonies where people use trout fishing lures for trout fishing rather than hair accessories, so I may not have the most fashion-forward opinion). I vote Tenley.

    Sinclair! Beckett a close second. But I loove the Sinclair and I haven’t seen that style as much. So it gets points for being unique. Cute pictures. Wish I needed glasses…sigh :) Did I tell you my story of faking the eye exam?

    Wow… the Beckett is by far the frontrunner according to everyone’s votes. I’m kind of amazed–I didn’t think there would BE a frontrunner! Thanks everyone for commenting–I’ll be posting a follow-up with my decision soon!
