Glasses

I have worn glasses for a long time. In highschool, I would wear fake classes for fashion purposes but in my early 20's, I realized that I actually needed them. As I get older, I rely on them more.

Lately, I have been considering a change. I really need to update my eyeglasses prescription and find a new pair of lenses. I have even considered getting contacts. Though contacts would mix things up a bit, I am definitely a creature of habit and not wearing glasses would almost be out of my comfort zone.

As this has been on my mind a lot lately, I was conveniently contacted by GlassesUSA.com during this same time! Oh convenient indeed! My search for new glasses continued and I began to browse their site and see what they had to offer.

One of my favorite things is the fact that they have cheap glasses. Its hard to go to a doctor's office and pay an arm an a leg to get glasses that you really like. The offices never seem to have good prices on the cute pairs.

I also liked the the fact that they have categorized their eyeglasses. My favorite category was the Vintage/Nerdy section (thats what it was actually called), perfectly describes me and I was pleasantly surprised by their selection and affordable price. I was having an absolute love affair with this particular pair. Oddly enough, they are round! I have never worn rounded glasses.

One last feature that I thought was really neat, was their Virtual Mirror. You are able to upload a picture of yourself (or you can use one of their models with a similar face shape to yours) and actually try on the frames to see if they are what you are looking for. That way you don't end up with any surprises. Super convenient and honestly, super fun to play around with. This is the pair that I liked the best, who knew that I liked rounded glasses? I always go with the square/rectangle.

Trying on the iSee 033 Tortoise Shell via Virtual Mirror. LOVE them.

I need me some pseudo-intellectuals so people will take me seriously.

Those are really cute! I love the color/texture of the frames. But girl, you should never feel shy about doing contacts. Your eyes are one of your best features! Let 'em shine.
