I wear contacts for the most part but usually when I'm home or if I'm only going to the grocery store, I would opt to wear my glasses. I just bought this pair of Chanel frames and am eagerly awaiting for it to arrive.



I am also considering getting this pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs

i second that - the chanel frames are really beautiful.
pixie dust, i like your new ones too!
when i first got a prescription, i bought a pair of very inexpensive oliver peoples frames at optical underground while i was visiting SF. those bored me to tears, so i went to selima and got a pair of thick cutler&gross frames but...live and learn, they are too damn heavy.
i'm looking again. this will make my third pair in a year. ooops. i've looked at facial index, selima, still need to drop by moscot. any other suggestions in ny?

I'm really loving the Selima Mendat frames right now. As posted in this thread (I think?), Prism is a new brand generating some hype. I love her frames - so pretty. I'm really torn between Oliver Peoples Tycoon, Tom Ford Cary, Selima Mendat or the Prism Paris/New York frames. boo. I need to get my stuff together and decide.

deciding is, for me, the hardest part.
like you, meg, i can find half a dozen (or more) frames that i love, but, at least for this year, i should only pick one more pair. :p

is prism carried in any ny stores yet?

pixie_dust, your glasses breaking is a total tragedy but your news ones are way cuter. congrats.

right now I am obsessing over these Chanels

eyewearus.com

but its just silly because they are 400 bucks, I am saving for lasik (so I wouldn't need glasses anyway), and i just got my current pair a year and a half ago. But they are so cute, I love the pearl details.

No, Prism is only carried in her online shop though it will be carried in Browns at some point. Here are the frames I am choosing between:



At the top is the Tom Ford Cary, then the Selima Menrad (this is a shot of the tortoise shell frames via J.Crew. J.Crew is selling a limited clear frame version, NOT this color so no idea why they put it in their catalogue but I prefer this to the clear anyway), Prism New York (I love the shape - not this particular picture however it was the best to show the shape), the Prism Paris (I think this zebrahorn colorway would maybe be too bold to last the test of time, but I do love it's uniqueness and the shape), and last but not least is the Oliver Peoples tycoon. hmm....I keep leaning toward Prism though I know I shouldn't because they are the most expensive....

for myself personally, i avoid hardware like the plague, but the tom ford design, that T, is really really well done.
i love your choices. what will ultimately tip the scale for you?
i'm not going to buy glasses without trying them on first, so that rules out prism for me, for now.
i tried on a selima pair that is very similar to that prism shape, and it fit me just as that pair fits the model - where the cheeks get as much space in the frames, if not more than, the eyes. with my eyes at the top of the frame, rather than in the center, the effect, i think, is that i look kind of sleepy. but i might still get them.
off to try on a few pairs today.
