Outfit details at end of post
I received the miracle gift of LASIK two years ago from Mr. Wonderful – read about it here. I was the naughty girl who watched a movie that same night (hey it was a big screen) – and I will forever want to be the spokesperson for LASIK because it’s like Jesus touched your eyes and it only took a minute for each eye. Anyway, you can read that post.
I thought about keeping my old Burberry frames and swap out to a non prescription lens but was going to cost $100 so instead I decided to sell the frames on eBay.
Firmoo.com reached out and asked if I would want a pair try try, so my fashion glasses dreams could come true. Note: You can also get a pair with prescription, just fill out the details after you “add to cart.”
The coolest part was being able to upload your own photo, click “Try on View” and see all the frames on your face.
This also causes a crazy overwhelming feeling of suddenly 200 photos of your face fill up a screen but makes the decision process a lot easier.
You could also screenshot it and make it your husband’s desktop or phone wallpaper. Just kidding.
I posted a quick shot to IG and here were the results:
I love what everyone picked on IG, but those were black frames and I just wanted the tortoise color. So I kinda picked the same ones only a different color (and a little more square across the top). Thanks for all the feedback. The funny thing was those weren’t even my choices I had it narrowed down to, I just wanted to show how neat it was to see this. It was also ironic because Melayne liked the ones that were already in my cart so I just figured, alright, let’s buy them.
They arrived in a week and a half and came in a beautiful hardcase that looks like an old atlas map. You know me, wannabe world traveler loves that!
Now take a peek at the “Winner” shot above again and look – they do look the same! Size and color, I love it!
These don’t look anything like the frames I had before LASIK but I like them! It also makes me wonder why I haven’t booked a glasses/sunglasses model job, so let me just pretend I’m a glasses model now.
OK I stole that pose from the J.Crew catalog.
What do you think? Fun right?
Do you have fashion glasses? Would you ever wear any?
Disclaimer: Firmoo.com sent me a free pair to try, but as always, opinions are my own and products are only accepted if I feel they are a fit for myself, and good content for my blog and my readers.
