Weekend in Pictures: Spectacle Soiree with Bon Look
As you know from reading my blog, I wear glasses and I have recently discovered the joy of being able to change my glasses to match my outfits since I was introduced to purchasing affordable glasses online. I recently purchased a pair of glasses from Bon Look after seeing this post by Keiko Lynn. I loved the Honeybadger frames on Keiko Lynn, but I had to get on the waitlist to get a pair in chocolate tortoise. When they became available, I received an email notification along with a $10 discount! After ordering them and receiving them, I was so excited that I Tweeted about my purchase. I was contacted back by Bon Look and discovered that they have a representative here in San Diego, so we scheduled a “Spectacle Soiree” at my house with some of my friends to check out their styles in person.
Erika Kirkland, a San Diego Bon Look representative, helped me host this awesome little event . Knowing it would be a beautiful afternoon, I set up “shop” under a canopy in our front yard, so that my friends could enjoy the sunny weather and refreshments while shopping for prescription eyewear and sunglasses. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it really was a lot of fun because it was very low pressure, but interactive. The comments I heard from my friends was that it was great to try on what was seen online because they were unsure how they would look in person after only seeing a picture (even with the virtual try-on). I thought the pair that I ended up getting for myself (Cavalier in burgundy, pictured above with Erika) was too large online, but I loved the way they looked in person.
