A friend commented on my new bug-eye specs: "You look like one of those women you always see in New York, with the huge glasses and chic scarves." I knew what she meant. I've seen those women every time I've been to the Big Apple. I'm just not sure I want to be one. As you can see from the small sampling above, big glasses can be fab or, in some cases, a fashion foul.
