framed

In the past few weeks I’ve had two very different experiences buying prescription glasses. The first involved visiting my long-time optician and the other was through the online service Firmoo. I’ve always been a bit hesitant about buying glasses online but when Firmoo approached me with the offer of new glasses, curiosity got the better of me. In my mind, glasses had always been something that required a professional, hands on approach but I found the online process to be quite simple and convenient. All I had to do was pick a style and provide my prescription. I went with these retro tortoiseshell frames, which were a bit of a change from my usual black frames. I received them within a week and was quietly impressed with the quality. Especially since these glasses only cost $8. EIGHT DOLLARS, PEOPLE. Firmoo also have an offer where new customers can receive their first pair of glasses free. Definitely something worth checking out if you’re in the market for new specs.

    These are really cute. I will forever be jealous of girls who wear glasses. They can totally transform a look. It's a whole area of accessorizing that I'm missing out on!

      Usually I only have one or two pairs, but now I could probably buy a pair for every day of the week! (although I don't actually need to wear them that often ahah)

      Yeah I was a bit sceptical at first, but when they came they were just as good as my other pair (which cost me a couple of hundred $$$). Happy camper right here.

      I couldn't believe it either! And I think they're one of the pairs you can get free if you're a first time customer too. Crazy!

      I'd gladly trade in my glasses for 20/20 vision 😉 The grass is always greener…
