Okay, now I need help choosing new frames. After holding steady for five years, my distance scrip has changed a bit. I want something funky. I have two pairs of Lulu Guiness reading glasses, and I could use one of them, (burgundy), but that would leave me without a backup for my readers, even though the second scrip is out of date. It'd be better than nothing though, if I lost my primaries (the tortoise version of this. Surprisingly, the readers have stayed the same scrip. Yay!

I like these. Tried them on in black, but it's too dark for me. They didn't have the rose or brown to get a sense of the actual color. Looking at them at this site, the rose looks good, but I don't know what the actual color is. I don't want something that's pink.

These are also cute, but they didn't have them at all, so I couldn't try them on.

They don't carry all designers or lines, but my optometrist said if I find one I like and she can order it, she will. So if you have any links to funky glasses in the same general shape (butterfly, rectangular) as the ones above, let me know. I want something in the brown or tortoise range, but I'm open to something in other colors as well. I think black is too dark for my coloring, but just about anything lighter could work. Red's probably not good either. What I really like about the two I have is the interesting tamples. I'm not usually someone who likes sparkly stuff, but I really like the sparkles in the flowers in the first one and the mesh in the second one. Oh, and I don't like the temples to be so wide that they obscure my peripheral vision.

ETA: These look pretty cute too.

And now I've found a line called FYSH UK and oh man do they have some cool/funky frames! I like this one and this one and this one and this one, and this one, but in brown, not that hot pink!

Yeah, I really like those too.

Check out these! I think I'm just going to buy these, since they don't take my insurance and they're co inexpensive. It would end up being cheaper than the others with my copays anyway.

I really love the second two pairs of Lulu Guinness, the ones with the flowers and the ones with the sort of starburst polka dots. In fact, I sort of want that pair in wine, meself.

These aqua/copper ones (http://designer-eyeglasses.go-optic.com/store/eyeglasses/details.asp?id=42663) are great, too, and would look fab on you, and these stained-glass ones (http://designer-eyeglasses.go-optic.com/store/eyeglasses/details.asp?id=33289) are just fun!

I wish I could justify the price of either the Lulu Guinness or the aqua/copper ones myself. They're GORGEOUS!

I can only justify it because I have vision insurance and I'm eligible for new frames this year. But now I've found some online companies that have some really amazing prices. I'm seriously considering ordering these. I wish they came in brown or copper, but I think the green would be fine too. And they're SO CUTE! I'll probably just get them anyway, to have a backup with my current scrip and then I can donate my old ones.

You may want to check out this site. They have a bunch of cute frames for under $20 including single vision lenses. Even progressives are cheaper than they are most places. There's also Zenni Optical, which has a bunch of $8 frames and I almost ordered some last night, until I saw the green ones.

Zenni is where I'm shopping, and where the glasses in my post all came from. ;-)

I really like those green ones!

I only get a $50 glasses allowance, and only once every few years, when I need glasses basically every year. Sooooo...yeah. I'm having a hard enough time talking myself into getting Transitions lenses.
