I’ve been on a bit of a glasses kick lately (I’ve got 4 pairs in rotation as of last week. That’s 3 more pairs than I have ever had with the same prescription in the last 12 years I’ve been wearing glasses). I used to always get black frames since I thought they matched with everything but I’ve recently discovered the need for a less harsh colour. I’ve been trying to break out of my monochromatic black, white, and grey rut and add some browns and pinks to my wardrobe. As much as I love my Derek Cardigan 7004/7005 frames, it’s hard to pull off such thick, black frames when wearing more neutral colours.
I ended up finding GlassesUSA.com which reminds me a lot of Clearly Contacts, who I regularly ordered glasses from when I was living in Canada. Glasses USA has a similar deal where you can get prescription glasses for as low as $38 and shipping is free anywhere in the US. As someone who has to wear eyeglasses daily, I cannot tell you how much I love these kind of prices, especially when I am looking to have more than one pair of glasses in rotation at a time so they can double as accessories.
I picked out the Yoshi Ayaka 3053 because of their vintage feel and sleek design. I used to shy away from metal frames because I thought they were too shiny but these are making me fall in love with metal frames! They’re lightweight and not too flashy– perfect for the subtle, fall-coloured accessory I was looking for.
P.S. Glasses USA is offering some sweet discounts if you’re in the market to order glasses:
