Your Votes in Action

A while back I asked for your advice on which eyeglasses frames I should choose. You promptly voted and I had a clear winner. Unfortunately, I sat on your input for weeks (MONTHS) and when I finally went back to get my glasses, the frames you chose were no where to be found. I did take the pictures of the frames you most liked, though, and used your advice to choose some comparable styles.

Since I waited so long, I got a great deal, where I managed to get two pairs of complete glasses for less than I paid for a single pair the last time I bought new frames (at least three years ago).

Ta-da!

Pair #1:

I finally got new frames! Pair #1. What do you think? on Twitpic

And pair #2:

And pair #2. I got a 2fer deal and couldn't pass up the 2nd p... on Twitpic

(I know, I know. They're very similar. It's very funny how you don't realize these things until you're taking pictures of yourself.)

Thanks for the great advice, dear readers. I should come to you with all my life altering style questions from now on.

Ami--

I already told you, but I LOVE THEM! They are so flattering and with your cute-as-can-be 'do, you're stylin'! You are adorable!

I missed out on the original vote but it looks to me like you made two very good choices!

Dude!!! They are almost identical!!!

I sent you a box o'books today. Keep your eyes peeled.

Ami said...

Thanks Erin! I'll take cute!

Jane - I like your specs, too! Thanks for stopping by.

Jen - In person they do look different. Just not much different. :) Looking forward to the box. And I have a surprise for you, too!

They look great! I love the first pair especially and I don't think they're identical at all...

Your hair is kickin'. Very pretty.

JennyMac said...

They look very similar..but so do the dozens of black pants I have. LOL. Love the eyewear.

Ami said...

Reluctant - Thanks! I thought the second pair would be my favorite because they're most like the ones that got all the votes, but I'm feeling more drawn to the first pair each morning when I put them on. I'm so in love with both pair that I haven't worn my contacts in a week!

JennyMac - Very good point. :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

They both look adorbale, but I'd go with #2. I like the cleaner lines of them. :)

I love those glasses with your pretty face! ANd love your haircut, too!

I wear contacts, but while in ER, had to take them out - well, GMR brought me my glasses I've had for years - OMG! THey are SO ugly and dated *laughing* They're this weird silver color, and the lenses are so thick I don't know how the thin frames are holding them in!

Ami said...

Jennifer and Jeannie - I love them both. The pictures don't really do them justice...I have found myself wearing #2 when I'm in more of a trendy mood and #1 when I'm in more of a casual mood, though. I wonder what that says about my personality?

Kat - Isn't it funny how much styles change over time? I'm sure these two pair will make me laugh in a few years, too. For now I'll just enjoy them! :)

Ami said...

And thanks for the compliments, Kat! You're too sweet.
