Have you ever ordered glasses online? How did it go for you? I have the hardest time ordering glasses online because...well...I just don't trust that little picture of me that shows me what I might look like wearing the glasses. I like to actually try frames on before I purchase them. I don't wear glasses to look cute, I wear glasses because I wouldn't be able to see without them. Seriously, I wouldn't be able to see anything without them. BUT, that doesn't mean I don't want to look cute while I wear them. If I have to wear them, they're gonna look good! There's a part of me that's so tired of going to a store to try them on, though.
I was determined to find an online glasses store that is affordable, reliable, and has stylish frames. I read reviews of several online stores I came across and I just wasn't impressed. And then I came across a few others...some that would ship me a few frames to try on for free to help me decide which frames I should go with. I ended up choosing Classic Specs.
**Disclaimer: I am not being paid for this post nor have I received any free products from them because of this post.** Classic Specs allowed me to choose 6 frames that they shipped for me to try on. And, I must say that their virtual try-on was pretty good. Look at the photos below...the red frames are really as red as they look in the virtual try-on!
Best part of it all, they have a flat-rate price line! $89 for the frames, prescription lenses, & anti-reflective coating. Oh, and they have free shipping (including shipment for trial frames to get to you and to send back to them) and they donate a portion of profit to New Eyes for the Needy.
Remember I told you that I desperately need glasses to see? Well, because of that, my lenses were a bit more expensive --a $20 charge for allowing me to see into the future, hah! But because they didn't have a color I requested for one of the frames on my list, they gave me a 10% off coupon code. Awesome!
So, my six frames arrived in the mail for me to try on and now I need your help! I narrowed down my choices to my top 4. Which frames do you think look the best??
