I just got new glasses, too! They're clear plastic that has what
appears to be a sort of light denim fabric embedded within the plastic.
They "read" as medium-bright blue and I am just loving them. I've
finally come to realize that glasses are, in fact, my most important
and visible accessory and that I can permit myself to own more than one
pair at a time. Yay!

New glasses! And I decided I was tired of the same old wire rims, and
just got a new prescription, so I went to Ottica in downtown Seattle.
Lorelai, who either works there or is the owner, not sure which, is a
friend of both my hairdresser and my vet, and both had shown up with
great, wild new glasses. One of my coworkers went down there and came

orange/red stripe that looked pretty darned good, but she agreed that
they were not everyday, wear-to-the-office frames. I may go back and

Congrats! New glasses can be fun. I have a pair of LA Eyeworks "Cateye"
glasses in black and LOVE them. They're the first glasses I've ever
owned that I wear because it's part of my look for the day and because I
like how they look rather than because my contacts are bothering me.
You've just reminded me that it's time to find some more glasses. I want
something other than black for days when I'm not in a "black" mood :)
Enjoy your frames. My LA Eyeworks frames take a lot of abuse and I'm
sure that if and when my prescription changes, I'll want to get new
lenses for them.
