Starting from the top left, I'll go clockwise.
Adorned Cateye: Zenni
I had never ordered from Zenni before and I have to say it was very easy. They had a great selection and it was easy to find the measurements, which is a big deal for me as I have wide side set eyes and a wide face. The prescription is perfect, as is the fit. From order to my face was about a week and a half, so not bad at all. I was overall very pleased with my buying experience.
Sunglasses: Warby Parker
About 5 years ago I ordered a pair of glasses from them and was very happy with the experience. This time was the total opposite. Several days after placing my order, I was emailed to contact them regarding my prescription (you can not type it in, you must upload it). Mine was over a year old, but had not changed and the one I uploaded did not have a date. After speaking with one of their representatives and getting it squared away I was told I'd receive my glasses in 5-7 days. A week later I called after not hearing anything or receiving tracking information and found out my order had been misplaced and I was told I'd be receiving a 20% refund. A week and half later my packaged arrived, but the sunglasses sent had no prescription and were not my order #. I called to let them know and was told they'd mail me return postage and I'd now receive a 30% refund on my order. Finally a month and 1 week after my original order I received the correct pair, however I was never mailed a return label, nor did I ever receive my 30% refund. I ended up sending back the glasses on my own dime and I never heard back from them. Needless to say, I will NEVER order from Warby Parker again. I like the glasses, but was beyond disappointed with the service. It doesn't matter if the representatives are friendly if no one ever does what they say they will. Oh, and this week I received a package from them that contained a handmade owl pinata filled with candy to celebrate their 5 years of business. It made me super angry that they could get their shit together enough to send something that I didn't want nor need, but not a $150 pair of sunglasses that was ordered. So, thanks but no thanks.
Enough of a rant let's move on to a kick ass company...
Aqua Clear Cateyes & Large Round Brown Glasses: Polette
I LOVE this company! Their selection is unmatched and the website is super easy. To say that these glasses are affordable is an understatement. Both pairs together cost less than $70. The shipping does take a while, about 3 weeks, but they are a French company, so I expected it to take a bit longer being overseas. Plus, after waiting over a month from a Warby Parker, I was more than patient. There is a bit of prescription distortion with my round glasses, but they are very large, so it was really no surprise. I could have bought a smaller pair that would have eliminated that, but I wanted these. The clear aqua pair are perfect. If you are looking for a super cute, stylish, & affordable pair of glasses check them out. I have nothing but praise for them.
Share your online glasses buying experience with me. I'd love to know if you've had similar problems or success.
