    Ack. That sucks. Try calling again...maybe ask to speak to a manager or supervisor? They usually try to help customers out more than regular CS reps.

    Ouch, that sucks about the lenses. I agree with DH, ask for a supervisor. Also, I would be very upfront about it being your mistake. I recently ordered the wrong color when ordering some mineral makeup online (hard to remember that "fair" is lighter than "light"). The company has a generous return policy, so I called and explained my mistake. The woman on the phone immediately said they would send the correct color, and when I asked about returning the wrong one, she said not to bother, that I could pass it along to someone else. Made me an even more loyal customer!

    Now, about the glasses. I'm in the same boat, wanting something funky but not sure if it's too much. And the funky ones I REALLY like are insanely expensive. It's really hard to tell about the 1st pair, since they're not the right size, but my hunch is that even in the right size, the chunky earpieces will be too much with your delicate features. The 2nd pair, eh. They'll do if that's what you can afford, but they're not exciting. If you can spend a bit more, take a look at www.framesdirect.com. They have TONS of brand name frames at discount prices. They are also reasonable for making the lenses. You can upload a photo to their site and virtually "try on" frames. You can also go to eyeglass stores, try on frames, write down model #s and then check the prices on the website.

    Ok, I didn't want to start another post for this since this is technically not hair-related, but I found another website that lets you borrow glasses to try and theirs are sooo much better! They let you have 3 at a time to try, so I took pics trying them. I've created an album with them, you can see it here Tell me what you think. ;)

    #3!! I think they're fun and cute! The heavy earpieces on the other 2 (especially #1) are too much for your face. They make your eyes look too close together.

    I like #3. Are you going to try more before deciding? What's the website? I need new glasses, too!

    Yeah, I agree. #3 fits you face almost perfectly. The only thing is does that frame come in other colors? They match the shirt that you are wearing perfectly, but I'm just thinking that they might not match your other clothes(I might be wrong though).

    I agree also. #3. :)

    IWCH, yes they come in a 'blonde' color (what they call it) and 'ice blue'. The 'blonde' looks really blah brown, and the blue I'm not crazy about. It's funny you guys say that pair because They do feel the best on. The others feel fine too but these have almost a 'perfect' fit to them. Kent likes those the least because of the stripes. Oh well. :lol:

    RR, yep, I'm going to try some more. ;) It's a company here in sweden - www.optikbutiken.se :)

    Thanks guys. :)

    btw, I just realized both times I had my hair either pulled back or in braids. And it's always after the gym when my hair's taken a real beating. :shock:

    Just shows how different people have different opinions..... I think the stripes are a big part of what make them so cute! :lol:

    I like either 2 or 3...both are really really cute! It's hard to decide, because the dark ones are neutral and go with anything you wear, but the striped ones are absolutely adorable and look great with your skintone.

    I love how these place let you borrow glasses so you can try them on. I'm going to research and see if there are any in the states!

    I *lovelovelovelove* these!

    You guys are so helpful!! I knew I could count on you! :mrgreen:

    DH, yeah I completely love the 'loaning' idea, otherwise I'd be a little afraid to buy a pair I had never actually tried! And I love those Jessica ones too! They have many good ones there. :)
