Eye Love

I'm hunting for new glasses with black frames to go with my hair and more than half of my wardrobe. I've had my reddish brown Armanis for almost a year (a generous gift, by the way) and they're pretty and sturdy, but the problem with this pair is that it looks off with all-black or black and white outfits.

I'd love to have the thick cat-eye glasses model Anna Jagodzinska wore in a recent Tom Ford eyewear ad. They might be a little too couture for everyday use, but they look really fun to wear!

I haven't tried contacts because I have a feeling they'll be uncomfortable. I can't even stand eye drops, let alone putting things in my eyes, but never say never, right? At least for now, I'm happy with a good ol' pair of easy-to-wear (and fierce!) frames like these.

The rectangular ones from Dolce & Gabbana and Prada are classic choices, and the details on the sides add a chic, modern twist.

Lastly, I find Taylor Swift's geeky glasses in her You Belong To Me music video incredibly cute! I highly doubt they'd be as nice on me, but they will definitely look quirky.
