photos by Anni Compton frames: 1 | 2 | 3
A few weeks back, I accidentally stepped on my glasses, luckily my husband was able to super glue the broken pieces, however, these frames are about 4 years old so I’m in desperate need of a new pair. Which leads me to this…
Guys, I need your help! I am pretty overwhelmed with all the great frames out there, and though I’ve been able to narrow it down to frames from either Steven Alan Optical or Rowley Eyewear, I still need some feedback on which ones fit my face shape best.
Luckily, my best gal Anni was more than willing to help me out and snap a few pictures of my chosen frames. First up are my Steven Alan optical picks. Which pair do you guys like the most? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated, let’s face it, I’ll probably have these new frames for the next 4 years.
By the way, yes, we are at the Steven Alan store in Wicker Park, they do offer a try on at home option for their frames, but after the brutal winter we had, Anni and I were looking for any excuse to leave the house, plus the employees were sweet enough to accommodate our quick, impromptu photo shoot.
Vote here for your favorite pair:
That was tough, but so fun! Glasses shopping is the worst for me…at home (and here actually) there are a select few places, and certainly nowhere as cool as Steven Alan! Good luck, pretty lady!!!
Dana, I was hoping you would see this and vote on your favorite, I value your opinion so much! Also, do you see how long my hair is getting?! :)
YES! I forgot to mention how darling it looks! Especially with those overalls. Love the ombre effect. I don’t know if you can see who voted for which pair, so I’ll just tell you– Thayer! Though Putnam was a close second. After seeing these I went to SAO and found a pair I know I’ll consider the next time I’m in the market for new frames (I’ve already had my Warby Parkers for a year now!).
