Whew. It's actually exhausting trying on pair after pair and having to remember which ones were duds and which ones were hot. The kiddos and I went to two different optic-locations today, both bursting at the seams with nerdy goodness. And, considering my sudden (yes, childish) interest in bespectacled men (like Mr. Robin Van Loon, over there in my side-bar; I'd totally be lying if I said I don't intend to trek into the sacred jungles of "darkest Peru" to ask him out), it's something I might start doing more frequently.
I actually couldn't make a final decision, therefore we are hitting the trail again tomorrow, back to the same stores we went to today. Out of the 100+ that I tried on, I have about 5 favorites.
I'm taking Helen with me tomorrow, if I can, because I'm nervous about making the wrong choice. The last time I bought glasses, a year and a half ago, I was under pressure to get in and out in a timely manner and I sort of freaked out. I ended up buying a (cute) pair of trendy little glasses with a rectangular sort of look to them, in dark pink/light green.
Don't get me wrong, I love them, but they just don't fit my face :-(
It doesn't help that I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHAPE MY FACE IS (other than "weird" lol). I've ruled out circular and square, so that leaves triangular, oval, and heart-shaped.
