    with her dark eyes

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-She looked good with her dark eyes and wavy hair.

    2-The stew smelt great with the fragrance of its various herbs.

    3-The smell of the stew, with the fragrance of its various herbs, was intoxicating.

    4-She looked great with her new glasses.


    I think '4' has to be 'with her glasses on'. The others seem correct to me.


    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

    They're all OK. #4 would be a little more natural as "She looked great in her new glasses". We usually use "in" when someone is wearing something (clothes, glasses etc). However, the original is OK and it would be OK with the addition of "on" at the end too.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
