New Glasses

These are the glasses I have at the moment - nice, but they are too big physically for my head and keep slipping down my nose!

So while we were in America I bought some new ones. There were lots of them at the Unclaimed Baggage Centre as strangely enough, not too many people label their actual glasses. First up these Nautica ones which are an unusual shape for me but I think they look ok.

Next up are these Ray Ban ones which I wasn't sure if they were too dark for me but Matt assures me that they aren't.

And these red frames were only $3 (and will cost about £12 to be re-glazed) so I couldn't resist them as something a bit different!

And as my sunglasses at the moment are way too small and let sunlight in all around the edge, I decided to get some huge ones. I think these ones are big enough!!

It worked out about the same price to buy these frames in the US and bring them back here to get them re-glazed than it would be for me to buy a decent pair of glasses here! Do let me know which ones you like :)

Hey Lyns, you are a funky speccy girl you know!! Love the red ones, very you!! The ray bans are cool too, like the ones you had but more in proportion with your face.

Brilliant bargains but you've got to feel sorry for the poor blind travellers feeling their way around the world :-(

The ray bans look really good on you, so I think they're my faves. Striking but not overpowering :)
