Help Me Pick New Glasses!

A couple weeks ago I ordered new glasses from Coastal.  They had a promotion going on that was their standard “first pair free” plus 50% off lens upgrades, which for me is wonderful, because with my high prescription, I don’t have a choice but to upgrade.  My new glasses ended up running me around $55 shipped, which is amazing considering the pair I have on right now was close to $800!

Anyway, I ordered these and when I got them in, I loved them, but each time I went to put them on, I felt like they didn’t work.  They were nice and casual, and different from what I had, but I felt they were too casual in some instances.  And then there was the purple.  I loved the color, but didn’t like wearing them if the color clashed with what I was wearing.  I was stuck, but because Coastal has a “love it or return it” 365 day guarantee, I was able to contact them about an exchange.  They worked it out, and I’m able to send the purple pair back and they’ll let me choose another pair for the same discount I used!  The problem is, I’m having trouble deciding which pair I like best!  So I’ve decided to ask you!

Those are the 4 pairs I’m torn on.  What do you think I should get? Cast your vote now!  I’m looking at placing my order by May 31, so that’s when the poll closes!

Edit: And since a few of you were wondering what I look like, here’s a recent pic with my new hair color and current style.  I find the “try it on” features on websites like Coastal never really work for me, but because I have an oval face, pretty much any frame style works on me (which is pretty awesome).

    Man I sure wish I could see you in them. You are such a beauty..I say the clear ones. But I need to see you in them… Okay, I’ll fly blind!

    Yea that’s the problem with buying online–it’s hard to see what they’re like on, even with the “upload your pic and try ’em on” feature Coastal has. That never seems to work just right for me. So I’m flying blind too LOL

    I agree we need to see them on you or at least a picture of you so that we can decide which ones might look the best on you. I made a decision based on the fact that you seem to like to dress with style but always look fun and exciting.

    I’m fortunate enough to have an oval face, so most shapes work on me. But tomorrow I’ll add a pic of my new hair style to help.
