  • I like the glasses Selena Gomez is wearing so much…I even considered buying them when I saw them at Aldo…but then decided otherwise…I wan’t sure whether I would be able to carry them off…People in Delhi would probably just stare at me, believing me to be a crazy woman, I am sure! 😛

    • @Shaili: Come on, if you love it wear it 🙂 Delhi is such a fashionable place…surely people won’t stare.

      • The less expensive ones have a wider brigde, or appear to in the photo/s – thus they look more relaxed and a bit less pinched than the expensive pair. However, the expensive ones don’t have that thin band of metal showing at the corners which makes them look more sleek and seamless. I’ve always felt tortoise glasses make one look smarter, so, in the end, after a try on of both of course, I would probably choose the tortoise, as I am always attempting to look as smart as possible. I think the inexpensive ones are more versatile, and the expensive ones are more sporty. So, I say: save 🙂
