meowmix said it best, it's trial and error really. You try on until you find the ones that work best.

Thanks for all the info meowmix. I did pick out the glasses in person, but that was the best photo I could find online. I tried a bunch on and tried to imagine what they would look like on her, but I think I need to go back and do some reconsidering.

If I post a picture of her, would you be able to give me some advice on what the best shape would suit her? (don't worry, she won't mind about the picture, since I already have the same one on our website, i wouldn't go posting pics of her online if I knew she would get upset)

She's the one on the left. Her hair's a strawberry blonde now, if that makes a difference. She lives in NYC now, but is moving out to L.A. soon, and I thought the sunglasses would make a good gift. I don't want something too trendy, so I think I want to stick with black, preferably Gucci.

Any advice on what shapes I should be looking for? Feel free to post pictures.

Around the metal parts the plastic (actually shades) are cracking, I never thought this would be possible. But it is! I am so mad!
On a similar note, my mother bought these same type of glasses (green clear shades with metal- no actual frame) Versace's from Saks and hers craked in half a few weeks ago!
I also have these other black Dior (Latina) sunglasses and those actually dismantled while in my glove compartment. The latter pair I bought at Nordstrom and though its been a year later, I am taking those back...

Now I am sure that this doesnt happen to everyone so it may not help you much. But something I would like to advise is that you dont buy like the 'hottest' or most trendiest style- because you dont wanna spend $500 on some huge frames or what ever that will be out like in 3 months!
Ouch...that's why I don't buy frameless sunglasses anymore because I had this pair that only had a metal structure on the top and first like the lens came off then I got them screwed again and later the whole thing started cracking.

Also if the plastic frame is very thin it can be dangerous because with just a little pressure the frame can crack and hence can't be pasted or fixed.

My advice: make sure they suit ur face well and then also it's not worth spending $100 on some shades that will not be hot later and can be broken or get lost...

Sunglasses: What do you think?
In my opinion...during the summer months sunglasses define your look. Recently I tried on Chanel Sunglasses (4095b)



and I'm thinking of purchasing them even though they are a slightly older style, Any suggestions besides these glasses? What is everyone else wearing?

I hate the color, they're very Britney. I like the glasses in themselves, because they're quite similar to mine and I love the cute visor, but the color is blah.

eh... I don't really like them.... I was never into those kind of sunglasses anyway though.

The color's nice though.. but I find something cheesy about the detachable visor. If you're giong to actually use them to golf though, Maybe it'd be useful!

I don't like the style, but I do like the colour.

I guess it just depends on whether or not you can pull it off.

Don't love the colour actually...the visor is so so...
Plus, $50,-? Probably not authentic then. These shades would at least cost something around $200 if theye were authentic... or so I think.

Honestly, I'm not feeling them at all. Too Hilton-esque. Besides, I'm pretty certain they're fake
