Yes, I’m a four eyes. But the strange thing? I kind of love it. You see, I always wanted glasses…even before I needed them. I was so weird. So imagine my delight (?) when things started to go a bit fuzzy as I would gaze off into the distance! My mom would say it was from all my late night readings in bed (after I was supposed to be asleep) by the faint glow of my nightlight. Either way, the optometric gods ruled in my favor! Lucky me.
I clearly remember picking out my first pair of wire rimmed tortoise shells! They were round. And big. Oh how I loved them! But after a few years of being attached at the nose (and being a ballet dancer: bun heads and glasses are not cute together), I was ready to break out into the freedom that was contacts! Our road together was not easy, and though I still occasionally wear them, I have once again decided to embrace the four-eyed way of life.
And if you have to wear glasses, why not wear cute glasses? And if you’re gonna wear cute glasses, why not make them a part of your fashion statement? And if you’re gonna make them part of your fashion statement, why not own some in every color?
So that is precisely what I set out to do.
Thanks to the advent of online stores that sell prescription glasses (and all their fantabulous offers) I have quite the collection.
And my newest find? GlassesUSA.com! A wonderful online store that sells a great selection of both prescription, and non-prescription eyeglasses. They contacted me a while back to ask if I would review a pair for them here on the blog, and it took me all of ten seconds to say “yes” . The first pair I ordered were just a touch too big, and so I can also recommend their customer service! They were very friendly, and my exchange was quick and easy. The second pair fit like a glove. The prescription was perfect, and the frames; excellent quality. I would highly recommend them. To help avoid the too-big problem I had, give this groovy little try-on widget a try:
Neat, huh? So now you know where to go when you need to buy glasses (or just want to!). There’s a 30% OFF + FREE Shipping sale going on with code: EYECANDY30!
