Along with 98% of people who are blessed with bad eye sight, I hate glasses shopping. I have such a love hate (mainly hate) relationship with my glasses. No matter how good I feel in my outfit, I will put my glasses on and BAM outfit ruined. I have suffered many a headache because I don’t want to sacrifice the cool outfit, or the carefully crafted makeup I am wearing. It’s ridiculous I know, shame on me.
The last time I went to the opticians, he told me that I should wear my glasses all of the time because I don’t want to lose street cred’ when a friend is walking up to me and I can’t even tell it’s them. As much as I hate to admit it… he was right. The other week I was sitting about a metre away from my friend in the canteen and I had been there for a good ten minutes before I realised it was him. Again, shame on me.
I always go to the opticians with such high expectations. I have an image in my head of me looking all edgy and pulling off the quirkiest glasses I can find. But, of course this never happens. Since a young age, I had always gone to a small local opticians who do not sell ANY fashionable glasses, which resulted in me being the ultimate nerdy child. So last summer while I was working, and had money to spend, I decided to push the boat out and treat myself to some designer glasses which I knew I would wear (and would have to because I spent a lot of money on them…).
As I am growing up, the puppy fat continues to cling to my face for dear life, so finding a pair of glasses that are wide enough on my face is important for me. If I got a small, thin pair they would be lost on me and make my moon face look even bigger than it already is.
As much as I love my Moschino glasses, I have now had them for nearly a year and don’t want to get bored of them. (Ya’ll know what I’m like). I like the idea of having glasses to choose from depending on what outfit I’m wearing, so with this in mind, I decided to venture over to EyeBuy Direct to choose myself a pair of cheap yet very cheerful funky new glasses.
I have always found the thought of buying glasses online daunting.
‘What if they don’t fit?’
‘What if I don’t like them once they’re here?’
‘What if I can’t see through them?’
Fear not – after taking a simple measurement, inputting my presciption and choosing the design, my order was placed. With most online glasses stores you can order a free trial pair to see if you like them before you commit to getting your prescription put in. I would suggest doing this just to be sure, but of course, me and my impulsive ways decided to go straight in for the kill and order them anyway. Luckily, I struck gold and I LOVE the glasses I ordered.
