Several months ago now I went to help my sister pick out eyeglasses.
#1. Hmmm. Not bad. Proportional. All about proportions, and I have kind of a big head, kind of a big face.
#2. No. Somehow neither short enough nor wide enough. Too close to being square.
#3. Wow. No.
#4. Eeeegh. Not loving the round shape. Not at all.
#5. Oh, wait. Not bad, surprisingly. Not quite what I would want but a decent fit. Balanced clearance around the eyes, correct spacing.
#6. Haha. No, nothing doing.
#7. Yuck. These vintage frames do not work well on me. Such a shame, I do like them on others now and then.
#9. What’s with these little promontories? Those I do not like at all. But the overall shape…potential there, sitting too low. Oh, on the nails: Essie Ruffles & Feathers, on the lips: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Favorite.
#10. AAAAHHH! Nooooooo.
#11. I want to like a cat eye but it’s not quite…sitting right. Not bad, though. I don’t want to give up on the concept yet. And tortoiseshell I routinely like.
#12. Ooooh. These I like. These are the Glossier x Warby Parker Aviators. I’m predictable when it comes to aviators.
Not that I need glasses.
