Default Epic search for "THE PAIR" of Eyeglasses

On this quest, I have come across many options, but nothing that slapped me across the face and said, "Me! Pick me, dang it!"

But...
OMG...
I had one nearly break my jaw and say, "I'm so cool, you know you want me".
To which, I ran away like a frightened kitten!

Behold:





http://www.funkytrend.com/unique-pierced-eye-glasses/

So... Can I get some help with less... *gulp*

Okay, yeah, I think the above is fricken awesome, but 100% likely to completely freak out my boss and coworkers and I am definitely not brave enough to try it. (And, my ears are the only pierced thing I've got) and the above is just WOW.

Can I get some ideas/links of frames/rimless glasses that are unusual or just plain cool lookin'? My lonely quest isn't getting very far without another set of eyes and contacts are not the way to go for me.

I am down 60 pounds, my hair is about to get chopped into a very previously-not-me style tomorrow, I think there will be color ("natural shades") involved.

I am looking to ditch the black frames in my avatar (will update it after hair cut to show what I'll be workin' with). And I need HELP! I stink at pickin' out glasses. And I want a pair that I can be proud of.

(I've got this thread over in the 20somethings' section, but I think I'll get better ideas here, . Yeah, I've got 5 ear piercings, but due to my job, I haven't been "brave" enough to do any other mods. I am tired of playin' the undercover alternachick (I've already had to limit my hair and hair color ideas to "business appropriate"), so I want some cool specs! I've been looking for something steampunk too for prescription sunglasses, but so far, no dice.)

Yeah, still caught between, "That's so cool!" and "OW!"

The guy, James, has a Bridge Piercing. That's what the glasses are connected to.

Okay, I admit, if I wasn't afraid of infection/my body rejecting it and if I had a more unusual job than the stereotypical secretary-type position, I think I would have attempted that a few years back.

*goes back to hunting zenni optical for a new pair of specs*

Bridge piercings aren't any worse than an eyebrow. I think you would want the bridge piercing to heal before adding glasses to the equation though.
