Alternating (eye) glasses?

So, I wear a tie to work daily.
I own a green frame which matches well with brown.
However, I was thinking of getting a black frame for my other colors.

Would it be weird to swap frames day by day?

, Princess, thanks!

I kept thinking about the green frame and I thought ... Kermit?

I'd rather see yellow or blue with brown, than green and brown together.

I see no problem, glasses are accessories, why not switch them out? Some folks who don't need glasses like to wear them, almost like jewelry. And nothing wrong with green frames!

agreed, dawg.
i know people who have several pairs of glasses; different colours and styles to match what they're wearing. not strange at all.
forest green and brown go well together.

All the frames on my glasses are........PURPLE. But, I wear purple every day (my "uniform is purple on top, black/blue on the bottom. Easy to dress, easy to pack, everything matches). There is a company in Montreal that makes frames where you can slide a color into the bow. I can't remember the name of the company, but you can order the different "slides" on line. I can't find it--I can try if your are interested (or maybe your eye doctor knows which company this is).

Once upon a time, many years ago .... Ha ha. I've worn glasses since I was, well, old enough to hold them on my head. When I was gainfully employed, I had three pair. I'd recommend a tortoise-type pair to go with everything, then something in the cool colors (green, blue, aqua, etc) and something in the warm colors (red, orange). I'm now thinking, why do I only have one pair of glasses now? Go for it~!

I'm gainfully employed and can only afford one pair. Dark frames, usually brown or a gold wire frame. I've never thought of them as an accessory, but as an appliance I need to function.

Watch Walmart for frame sales. I got 3 pairs of prescription glasses plus the eye exam for $400 (MN). In Canada, one pair of glasses would have been $400 and the eye exam in Ontario $80. The purple frames for my prescription sunglasses were on sale for $18. Without vision insurance coverage, I have to pay for this myself. It was the best deal I could find.
