    I like B and E. B’s a little more obvious (“HELLO THERE I’M WEARING GLASSES!“) while E’s a little more subtle, so, whichever of those impressions you’d prefer. :)

    Now I’m interested to see if everyone answers the same thing, or if we all have different opinions. (Opinions, after all, are not in short supply in the comments of a feminist blog! Heh.)

    I think I like G and E, in that order.

    Mandolin says:

    D, but I might just like your expression.

    Kohai says:

    I’d say G or K!

    Ampersand says:

    So far on Facebook, F is in the lead by a wide margin. Which is the pair that I came the closest to not including at all. :-)

    nobody.really says:

    Before reading anyone else’s comments, I picked in order of preference F, G, A, L.

    Frameless glasses make so much sense, ‘cuz who doesn’t associate Amp with Donald Rumsfeld?

    G or A

    I’d vote E or G. That side-eye is putting me off F.

    Nancy Lebovitz says:

    I vote for E and G. I didn’t notice F until you mentioned it’s the facebook favorite, but it’s not bad. I’d say E and G are the winners for conventional, and F is the winner for attractive but quirky.

    E, G or I

    The only ones that actually look different to me are the ones with the clear frames. I mean, I can see tiny differences if I look hard, but some of those look like literally the same glasses to me.
    I hate picking out frames because they don’t have the lenses in, so I have no idea how I actually look in them. “Yes, that blur looks great. . .”

    Myca says:

    I like B, K, and M.

    FWIW, M is the closest to Harry Potter glasses, so … I mean … I guess it’s up to you. Maybe you don’t want to go to Hogwarts.

    F, G or I, I think.

    Martha Joy says:

    I like E the best, then K. The F pair is horrible, don’t listen to Facebook. I’d even say you could go bigger, your face looks good in a defined frame.

    Sharon Cullars says:

    A, G, J, or M

    Jake Squid says:

    I like A, E & G. But you should really be looking at round wire-rimmed frames. Those are clearly the best frames in the world.

    Sarah says:

    I like B, E, and I quite a lot. F is not what I would pick, but they also recede a little bit, visually, whereas darker frames stand out a lot against your face. Maybe that’s what Facebook is reacting to?

    (And M is definitely Harry Potter glasses.)

    louise de rênal's left shoulder again says:

    I go for K. But maybe that’s because you look most like me that way.

    Phil says:

    I am really partial to G and L. D is a great photo, but I think that has more to do with your smile.

    Kate says:

    I think the ones in F are a good shape for your face (that’s why I picked G and A). But, they sort of look like safety glasses to me.

    Daran says:

    Am I the only person who thinks you look like Penn Jillette?

    Hm…. tricky. First, I need to guess whether anyone thinks Amp looks like Penn Jillette. Next, I need to guess whether Daran is one of those people. Let me get back with you….

    But clearly we need some kind of dynamic bar chart to reflect the state of the voting.

    F or I.

    Lenora says:

    F! or at least consider another pair of light colored frames.

    Ampersand says:

    Am I the only person who thinks you look like Penn Jillette?

    No, I’ve gotten that before. :-)

    Simple Truth says:

    I like E. I is good, too.

    RonF says:

    Amp, so have I! Back when I had an appreciable amount of hair, that was …. I think my voice had a lot to do with it too.

    nobody.really says:

    It’s funny, but my preferences change depending on the order in which I look at the glasses. But in general I say I before E — except after C.

    I is good, too.

    Honestly, Simple Truth, I’d always thunk that about you.
