blue eyes

I’ve only ever really needed one pair of glasses but lately I’ve been toying around with the idea of building up a collection, just because. I usually stick to black or tortoiseshell frames but when Firmoo gave me the chance to pick out new glasses I decided to branch out. These baby blue frames instantly caught my eye. I used to be hesitant about purchasing glasses online but once I knew the ins and outs of my prescription it was all pretty straightforward. I’m pretty familiar with what frames suit my face, and chose a classic wayfarer shape, but if you’re hesitant Firmoo have a virtual try-on system to help you with the process. I also compared the measurements on the site with frames I have at home. I received my glasses pretty quickly and they were exactly as described. The prescription was spot on. They’re a most welcome addition to my growing collection of glasses. If you’re on the lookout for new glasses Firmoo have a First Pair Free program, where first time customers can claim a free set of glasses. I also have five $25 vouchers up for grabs for Firmoo’s Classic Series, so if you want one just email me and I’ll pass along the voucher code. First in best dressed etc.

Also, any other bloggers wishing to collaborate with Firmoo can find out how to do so via this link. Please note that I don’t make any money from these posts but I did receive these glasses for free to review.


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.
