glasses usa review

if you've been following me for awhile, you might remember that time when i bemoaned the fact that i have to wear glasses sometimes. how i originally thought they were cool, and my eventual discomfort with them.

however, i've been needing a new pair for oh... five years...?

so when a representative GlassesUSA.com contacted me recently, and asked me if i wanted to try out a pair of their prescription glasses, i jumped at the chance.

and here are the lovely results :)

over the years of trying out all kinds of styles, i went in pretty much knowing what i was looking for.

i wanted stylish retro frames, that weren't too square in shape. they also had to be small-to-medium in size (due to my high prescription), and moderately priced. i certainly found what i was looking for in the b&k 203 :) (out of stock right now.)

i don't know what it is with these glasses. but i feel awesome and confident in them!! i'm not even just saying that because it's a review. when i first had to get glasses in the 2nd grade, i LOVED them and felt that they made me totally special (that feeling eventually wore down once i realized the glasses actually made me "geeky," not cool.)

but when i put these on, there was a revived feeling of specialness :) i truly adore them!

i also loved the site, because they have all the cute vintage styles... and the prices are VERY inexpensive. even though i had to go for the super high-index thin lenses, the price was much lower than if i got my eyeglasses at a retail chain store (who we all know charges up the wazoo.)


conclusion: if you are in the market to buy glasses anytime soon, i can totally recommend glasses usa :) the prices are fair, and the frames are cute! they're even having a sale right now... use these codes:

yay!
