New goggles for wife

Im looking for new goggles for the wife shes got a red and white ski jacket a small size face, You guys got any suggestions cuz right now i dont have any idea what would be good. She's currently using a pair of cheap smith goggles and i'd like to upgrade her to something better for this season. Plus those goggles shes got are a bit big on her face. I'm looking at anywhere between 50-110 dollars to spend on them

Comes with ear muffs too. Just a little over your budget, but not by much.
Vonzipper Chakra Yipes Black Goggle - Womens 2010

Different color, my company already sold this one out and looks like this company is about to sell out too.
VONZIPPER CHAKRA SNOW GOGGLES IN SIREN'S SONG FRAMES AND A SMOKE PINK CHROME LENS + EARMUFFS

Others to consider are Smith I/OS, get the 2009 so it's cheaper.

Oakley stuff. Again a little more than your budget. By the way, all of these are spherical lenses.
Oakley Stockholm Goggle - Womens 2010

Also check out Oakley's A-frames. The Gretchen Bleiler sigs are very nice. A neat trick you can do with the Oakley's is go to a store and try on the mentioned goggles. If they don't sit correctly on your girlfriend's face, you can order their Asian Fit. Asian Fits have extra foam and is beneficial for people with smaller faces even though they aren't Asian. Have fun shopping

I did some research on this previously. I came up with the Smith Anthem. Got them for my GF and she loves them. Only thing I could find that fit her little face well and is a nice goggle. Check them out.... Smith Anthem Goggle from Backcountry.com

on Backcountry.com!

i dig those Vonzipper ones but its a bit over my budget, I think im gonna go with those Smith Anthem's in the white and purple, those red ones might be a bit too flashy for her, she likes to be a bit more lowkey. Thanks for the advice and help, Think im gonna go purchase them now before Xmas so i have a few items to give to her haha. So far i've gotten her after skiing boots, gloves and now the goggles think im set
