I've had these for a little over a month now, and I wear them everyday! I have a hard time wearing contacts lately (my eyes are too dry), so I figured if I had to wear glasses I should have fun with them! I am very impressed with the quality of these frames and lenses. I do get a lot of compliments with these glasses, but I also get a lot of stares, haha. Not in a bad way though, its like people (especially older folk) are surprised to see someone in this retro style. I went into a [@] with my husband, and the ladies were going crazy over these frames- they loved them!I would definitely recommend these glasses. They are so much more fun than standard frames, and add a bit of style on top of your outfit. I marked above that I'm a "trendy/stylish dresser", but I'd say I'm in between the trendy and the casual. I will say one "con" though, which is mostly my fault, is that I disregarded the bridge width on these, and they were a tad too big for my face. Because of the shape of the frames, I couldn't find someone at an eyeglasses store to adjust them (they were afraid of ruining the style). I ended up looking up how to carefully adjust the bridge on my own (google it!) and they fit perfectly now. And no.. they didn't not ruin the style :)

Stunning...Minus the Math Signs

The frame is absolutely beautiful; the scale is lovely--it makes a statement without being cartoonish, and the quality is definitely great for the price. However, the math symbols do take away from the look, making such a great frame appear juvenile and even tacky/cheap-like those fake glasses in teen accessory stores. It's quite a shame, really. I really wish I could overlook them (and perhaps I could if the front symbols matched), but I am returning the frame. I could see myself possibly wearing them (symbols) to hang out or if I worked in a casual office, but not for a more traditional work setting or a really nice dinner. IMVHO the symbols limit such a chic frame. Hipsters & sophistocates alike would still look cool in these w/o the tacky symbols.

Comments about Derek Cardigan 7006 Brown Tortoiseshell:

My biggest problem with these glasses is that each pair is unique in regards to the spattering of spots for the tortoiseshell colouring. Why is that a problem? Well, I tried a pair on in the Robson Street, Vancouver location of Clearly Contacts and I LOVED the glasses, but the pair I received in the mail had a weird spattering of tortoiseshell spots (with a very bright spot towards the middle of the frames) and I didn't like that pair as much. It was the last pair available though, so I kept them. Each pair is going to be slightly different and that's not always a good thing. I'm still a big Derek Cardigan fan though and I LOVE the SHAPE of these glasses! I wish DC would design more with the same shape, but in different colours!

      Comments about Derek Cardigan 7006 Brown Tortoiseshell:

      I really love these. The only wish I have is that the tortoise was a bit lighter in colour. With my colouring this tortoise is a bit dark. I love the shape, comfort and everything else about them. And I can make the darker colour work. The stark contrast fits the style in this case.

      Comments about Derek Cardigan 7006 Brown Tortoiseshell:

      I was very keen in buying these frames for a while. I wanted something funky and fun. I think these frames suit small faces to really pop. They are fun and super cute. The only con I really have with these frames is that they sit on your nose bridge and it takes getting used to! But I'm keeping them. They are just so much fun!

          I initially ordered the same pair in black and loved them so much I couldn't wait to get the tortoise and pink version. I now wear these even more than my black pair since they seem to go with everything. Love you coastal! I'll never shop brick and mortar again!

            Hmmm...I really like the frame. I want to love it. The frame itself is pretty, but the little details make it look like those costume glasses you get at teenage accessories stores like Claire's. I have been asked if they are real glasses because of the math signs. Also, PLEASE BRING BACK THE PLAIN GREEN TORTOISE!!! If you must keep the cheesy math signs, please offer a tortoise in something that does not have that silly pink on it. It simply isn't versatile.

                        I currently wear the Derek Cardigan 7006 Green Tortoiseshell (I think these are discontinued but they are the same as these, they just don't have the pink). I am beyond impressed with the quality, accurate fit, and accurate magnification. I have never owned glasses that I have truly been 100% happy with until I purchased these. I must also say, I don't mind the compliments! haha.
