My super power is spectacle shopping (in this event, w/ endlessly adorable Ryoko Olson)
Q: which 2 did we choose?
Update: Top right and middle left were the choices.
Reasoning/recap: Top right with the clear frames allow me to see her adorable face, and the side/temples are translucent blue for a nice accent without being distracting.
(The face is “the painting,” the frames are the frame not a “statement”, rather a complement)
Went back-and-forth on the middle and bottom left choices but ultimately she preferred the way the middle ones felt on her face – so light! I tease that she looks like a *serious German scientist*.
Again, allows me to see her face – especially her expressive eyebrows – so very happy with them.
The bottom left were fun but overall just a bit too big and clumsy.
We pick up in a week so will update at that time.
Worth noting / regarding “objective”:
For Ryoko, we wanted one lightweight pair with blue filter for indoor/screen use time and another pair that was a little bit more rugged (while still being cute and not “sporty-goggley”) which she can wear out in the field when working.
PS When doing her jazz performing/singing, she usually wears contact lenses.
The top left and bottom right are both good “all around-ers” if we were only buying one pair – both safe/solid choices but really happy with what we chose – nice utility & variety.
The shop was a tiny boutique without the “endless walls of crappy frames” and the young gentleman diligently assisted us while I made a colossal mess of the place, and asked dozens of questions in my *rather unique* Japanese.
