style: new specs!

glasses 6

Guys! You have to check out Zenni Optical. I purchased nerdy hipstery glasses online from them just before the new year (driving at night was becoming kinda hazardous) and I couldn't be happier.

Their website is easy to navigate and the process was super simple. I uploaded a picture of myself, spent a couple of hours virtually trying on over 700 pairs of glasses (which frankly, never would've happened if I had to try them on in person) and narrowed it down to these four pairs:

           8204-25_2012-11-12_6201-22
           order_detail_31_26order_detail_3772

I ended up ordering three of the above pairs (the aviators on the bottom right didn't make the cut) for $112. Prescription and anti-glare coating included!

Less than two weeks later, my awesome new glasses arrived in the mail in their own little cases and let me tell you, life has never been clearer. I had no idea my poor eyes were working so dang hard these past few years! Plus, I get to channel my inner Liz Lemon (:

I'm psyched by how well (and quickly) it worked out. I'd highly recommend it!

  1. They look great, and that's a great price. I'm pretty blind and my glasses are always really expensive, so maybe I should check them out when I need a new pair!

    1. Thanks, Randi! I really enjoyed the online buying process. It's tiring (and time consuming) having to go from store to store looking for the "perfect" frames. This was easy peasy!

    1. No, you're the cutest! And you should definitely try wearing fake specs, Sara! I think they'd really suit you. Think sassy librarian. Hellooo!(;

    1. I was a bit leery at first wondering if the glasses were going to look okay on me, but the process couldn't have gone more smoothly. Plus, the prices are RIDICULOUS.

      Let me know if you end up getting some, Courtney!

    1. Hey Court! Does PD refer to the distance between your pupils? If so, I just had Scott measure it for me. Hope that helps!

      Can't wait to see your awesome new glasses, too!

    1. Thanks, Meesh! I lose glasses (okay, all kinds of things) all of the time. That's why I tend to gravitate towards the inexpensive ones. I just can't afford to lose designer glasses every other month.
