Eye see you baby, with the spanking new glasses! If you’re in the market for new eye or sun glasses you should give GlassesShop.com a try.
I’m taking a break from your regularly scheduled foodgasm to tell you about my latest experience with buying eyeglasses online. Last year, after much deliberation, I purchased my first pair of glasses online. I used the tools to upload my photo to virtually try on glasses, compared the sizes of the frame options to a pair I already owned, and got everyone’s opinion. In the end the glasses I got were larger than I anticipated but I admit they did grow on me. However, I tend to not leave the house with them on and decided it was time to get some that I felt more confident in.
The new website that I tried, GlassesShop.com, worked very similarly to the one I had used previously and at first I was a bit nervous to not be able to try them on in person, but decided it was worth the risk because heck I’m gonna be honest with you, I was going to get 2 complimentary pairs in exchange for a review. Conveniently I had just gone to the eye doctor so I had my new script ready to go.
GlassesShop.com focuses on online eyeglasses and sunglasses, and yes you can even get prescription sunglasses! But since I have contacts I wasn’t in need of prescription sunglasses. Once I picked my favorite glasses frames, I uploaded my photo to get an idea of how they’d look on me, narrowed down my favorites to 2, added my script, submitted my order, and then anxiously waited for them to arrive. Yes I’m actually going to show photos of my head and not a body with it’s head chopped off like in all my Stitch Fix posts!
Pardon my faded hair as I’ve been neglecting my oVertone. But I digress. The first pair I chose was maroon and they are slightly wide for my face, but I knew that when ordering because they showed up as such when I virtually tried them on. However, I don’t mind it that much (obviously because I ordered them knowing this) and enjoy that they are an every day pair of glasses that are not black. And they are not as huge as my previous pair.
For the second pair, I went out on a limb and got a pair of clear green frames and guys, they were actually my favorite pair! Not only are they the perfect size I love the color and how they look on me. Really making those green eyes pop ;-)! Now, why should you care about my free glasses? Well there is something in it for you too! Whether you want glasses frames just for fashion or if you need prescription glasses I have a special coupon code “GSHOT50” that gives you 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames excluded).
Disclosure: I was provided with two complimentary pairs of prescription glasses. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.
I can’t fathom buying glasses on line, but that’s probably the difference between being old (me) and being young (you). The new ones both look very good on you.
Honestly, I think I would still prefer to try them on first, but knowing I can return them if I don’t like them helps.
