Thanks for the suggestions! I like the bigger sunglasses frames, too, and would prefer those even for my regular glasses, not only because I like they way they look, but also because of the bifocal part of the lens being better to work with. I had the cat-eye ones when I was a kid and man, I hated those things! No way would I go with them, but I have seem them around, too. I've had glasses since I was 3 years old, I think. Hated them all this time, too.
If I can digress for a couple minutes, Denice, your post about bell bottoms. When I was younger, my grandmother told me that looser pants were coming back in style. I wore my jeans pretty tight...you know, you had to lay on your bed and almost use a pair of pliers to pull the zipper up. And Grandma kept telling me that looser pants were coming back and I'd start wearing them to be in style. I would say, "Cold day! No way am I wearing those things!" And, of course, I remember I had this really neat pair of bell-bottomed pants that I wore all the time because I loved them so much. To her credit, not once did Grandma say, "Told you so!" But I'm sure she thought it.
Back to glasses (sorry). KittyWhiskers, I like your glasses! Love the red and I would probably go with red. Not bright red, but definitely something in red. Although I saw a pair of really neat round-type, larger glasses on line and thought they were really cool. They were brown with tan and I like them very much. But we'll see. I love purple! Did I mention that my sunglasses are purple?
I don't care for bling, so I doubt I'd want anything with any kind of sequins or anything like that. Plus those things do come off after a while. My sister bought a neat pair of glasses with a red tint, but honestly they remind me of a certain ex-governor from Alaska and I can't handle them. They look really nice on my sister, but it's just my "thing" and I have issues with them.
Whatever fits me and looks good on me should be my choice. And I'm sure Dear Richard will add his
Thanks for your ideas! Stay tuned!
