As I'm sure y'all know by now, I wear glasses. Generally I wear my contacts, but I really like the look of glasses. They make me feel smart and I feel like they make me look older. (Reason I want to look older? We were out at dinner on Saturday and I was wearing a hoodie from my college alma mater and my husband told me that I looked like I was still in college ... and I'm 28)
I am a self-proclaimed glasses junkie. I buy glasses at least every year. Sometimes more often. Since my insurance will only pay for glasses or contacts and you can only get new glasses every 2 years, I've had to get creative. Websites like GlassesUSA give me an inexpensive place to get glasses without insurance.
Eyeglasses are an accessory. You don't even need to need to wear them to wear them. Personally, I love how I look in my glasses. It's just that contacts are more convenient and easier for me most days.
I was contacted by GlassesUSA.com to write a review on their website. Naturally, I couldn't write a review unless I checked out the site. Not to mention the fact that I won't work with a company if I don't believe in what they do.
I realize that some of you may not be very comfortable to buy eyeglasses online. I can promise you that it is actually very easy and little risk. All you need is your prescription from your doctor. That prescription has all the information that you need on it. If you have another pair of glasses that you like (maybe your old pair), you can read the numbers on the inside of one of the arms and get comparable size glasses for your new glasses. Or you can use the nifty Virtual Mirror on GlassesUSA's website:
So ... I'm not being given free glasses (although I wouldn't object to them, since I AM addicted), but I'm really LOVING these glasses. What do y'all think? Should I order them?
I'm thinking about it ... although I think I'd like some red glasses. Not Sally Jessy Raphael glasses ... but something in the red family. Oh, and my hubby needs new glasses too ... so we may both be getting glasses from GlassesUSA!
honestly though ... think I could pull this look off?
