A couple weeks ago, I told you how I was getting glasses. I was not super stoked about having to wear my glasses more often.. glasses never fit my face quite right and always make me look dorky. I was super not stoked when I knew my insurance covered didn’t have very good coverage on frames and I was probably going to spend a couple hundred dollars on glasses I already wasn’t excited about. Call me a pessimist. What I was glad to hear, however, was that I could buy my glasses online for WAY cheaper than I could in my doctors office, and they were also cute. Like, really cute. Like, made me excited to have to wear glasses cute.
As I mentioned, glasses always make me look totally dorky. I always love the wayfarer glasses on people but thought I would 100% NOT be able to pull them off. I decided to go for it anyway. I thought, at least this way you’ll think I’m trying to look dorky.
I love this pair. They’re super light weight and I can wear them all day long without getting a mark on my nose or sore ears. They’re super classy and chic looking and go with pretty much anything.
I obviously couldn’t stop there. Someone else told me about Coastal.com and I had to check them out. I loved firmoo so much, I thought coastal wouldn’t be able to compare, but alas, I found a pair I loved there too. I got a little brave and decided to go for the ultra-dorky pair. When they got here, I was a little nervous. I kept asking Brady, “do I look ridiculous?” to which he assured me I did not.. but he’s my husband, he has to say that. Anyway, it took me a week to wear them out of the house. I loved them, they were just so far out of my comfort zone.
First day out, I received multiple compliments. I’ve had them for a week and I get asked where I got them EVERYWHERE. It pays to take a risk, y’all. (currently, this pair – derek cardigan 7003 in tortoiseshell – is sold-out, but there are similar HERE)
I never ever thought I would like having to wear glasses (away from my computer desk) but I’ve got to say, they have quickly become my favorite accessory.
Perfect for no make-up days. Perfect to dress up a top knot and t-shirt. Perfect “umph” to a look. And since both places are offering your FIRST PAIR FREE, go snag yourself a pair.. even if you don’t need to wear glasses. They’re so much fun.
