The Perfect Pair

Being cooped up indoors for the winter made me want to bring some excitement into my life. Ok, this might not be super fascinating but I embarked on a glasses hunt by the way of at home try-ons.
they come in this nifty package, five at a time
There are several websites devoted to this such as Warby Parker (hipster glasses for $95), Fetch, Bon Look, Rivet and Sway, to name a few. Those websites are all basically the same: several price points and their own brand of eyewear; however, they're not really for everyone. If you are the owner of a flat Asian nose, you know that finding a pair of glasses that fit can be somewhat of a hard task.

I steered towards Glasses.com since they have a broader range of glasses but they are more expensive than the other websites.

So after five different packages and 23 different pairs of glasses (I got some repeats), I finally found a pair!
Can you guess which ones? The winning pair: the ones in the center.

After some adjustments from a local eye care place, I'm settling into my new pair. Would I do this again? Maybe for fun but after visiting the local eye place today, I realize there's no replacement for in-person help from a professional. And it's always good to support local businesses!

So, if you wanna receive free packages and try out some frames, then at home try-ons are a good way to try on a bunch of different glasses to see what works for you. (You get 5-7 days with the frames).

  1. I love glasses. Cause glasses can be the perfect accessory to show your personality. It is not the glasses itself but also a type of fashion statement. And my favorite store is GlassesShop.com.
