I Heart Glasses--A Giveaway!

I remember the day I got my first pair of glasses. They were gold and navy blue rimmed. Wire frames. I thought they were the coolest things ever. And it should be known that I didn't get this pair last week or even last year. Nope. I got them the summer of 5th grade--I was 10 years old and went to go get them with my two best friends. Afterward my Mom took us to Blockbuster where we picked up the movie Shag.


Anyway, this post is about my 21 years wearing glasses. The good, the bad, the super cute, the not so cute. Anyone that has worn glasses in their life can understand that you have to really, really love your glasses. I have to wear mine to watch television, drive, read, to see your face--basically anytime unless I am sleeping.


I now have a new favorite pair of glasses from EyeBuyDirect.com. EyeBuyDirect.com has a great selection of glasses, it honestly took me awhile to pick out a pair. I knew I wanted plastic rims because having two children who absolutely adore my glasses, I need to have something that won't get bent or broken easily. I finally decided on this pair:


Photobucket


This pair is called the Bremgarten and they sell for $39.95. That includes a lens prescription for single vision. They are black plastic rimmed eyeglasses and I love the look that they give me. In three words: I love them. Love, love, love them! I didn't tell Leo when they got here--I put them on (super comfy by the way) and went up to him. He was holding Madelyn who did a double take and Leo? He told my that they looked great.


I am thrilled with my glasses that I received. When I need a replacement pair I know that I will be shopping with EyeBuyDirect.com. They ship quickly, they're affordable, and they have an amazing selection. Perfection!

Since I don't wear glasses but do wear a lot of sunglasses I'd go with those... I personally like the "kangol KS5002-1"... They are all classy black on the outside and sassy zebra on the inside... I like something that is secrectly sassy!

Ever since my employer changed our vision coverage to only cover 1 eye exam every 2 years and nothing else, I've been stuck with my old glasses that are getting quite scratched up. I'd love to win and get a new pair of STORM ST017-16 although don't hold me to that, I'd need to do some photoshop picture tests to make sure they'd look good on my face before I actually order them (oh the price we pay for vanity...)
