Jezebel recently had a fine tribute to Girls Who Wear Glasses, and it got me thinking: Isn't it time for my eye exam?

I've never had any vision issues, and I'm guessing I still don't, but after viewing these iconic ladies I'm feeling like a twelve-year-old with the need to distinguish myself. And I really can't justify a tattoo. So I'm shopping for eye glasses!

 

Eye glasses want:  The Rachel Maddow

I know I should go for more glamour here, but her sturdy black frames feel like a fashion "do," also sported by Colin Firth in A Single Man.

Since I don't actually need glasses, it makes sense to go cheap and I've found a great match with these Rehobeth's in black at Glassesshop for only $26.95.

The Jezebel article points out that shopping online for glasses is somewhat unsatisfying and risky, but Glasseshop has a really fun virtual try-on feature where you can upload a picture, or use your webcam to put those specs right on your nose. I'm looking very hip!
