Fun & Affordable Glasses at Firmoo.com


With spectacles firmly cemented as part of my style, I’ve been trying to mix-up my glasses game.  I have several pairs that are solid, so it’s always fun to try glasses with patterns, outside of the uber-classic tortoise.  I recently checked out Firmoo.com and without even trying, I found this fantastic pair of spectacles in an interesting black, white and red pattern (style #F048) through their great search feature, which allows filtering by material, gender, frame type & shape, by color and even by pattern.

Before I made my final decision, I checked out all of the specs and compared the measurements to other glasses I already own.  I then used Firmoo’s virtual try on to ensure the glasses would actually fit the shape of my face.  I was so happy to see that these glasses would be a perfect addition to my collection!  I then uploaded my prescription (along with PD, which is the Pupillary Distance) and placed my order.  A couple of weeks later, I received my fab new glasses, which I wore recently to the Spandau Ballet concert at Humphreys By The Bay.  They are light but sturdy, and arrived with hard & soft glasses cases, a lens cleaning cloth and mini-screwdriver.  Also, your eyes do not deceive you: my glasses with prescription single-vision lenses were just $36!  They constantly have new styles added in their “New Arrivals” section, and they also have a coupon code page where new customers can get great deals sitewide.  I love my new glasses and I highly recommend Firmoo.com to purchase fun yet affordable prescription glasses!

Eyeglass World Grand Opening in Vista

Last month, I attended the media preview for the grand opening of Eyeglass World’s newest location in Vista.  Not only are they the only national retailer of prescription smart glasses (with brands like Google Glass and Vuzix), but they also have plenty of smart looking glasses as well!  I got to meet up with fellow San Diego Style Bloggers Nicholle of Top Knots and Pearls and Lilia of Curls & Fashion, and we were treated to snacks & champagne as we toured the lab, roamed the new store, and tested out several of the smart glasses.  I took lots of pictures, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed the event.  I’ll be back there to grab a new pair of glasses from their gigantic selection!
