As many of you have probably noticed, glasses are prominent part of my outfits and style. I only own 2 pair, because I'm awfully picky and glasses tend to be quite expensive. You can imagine how delighted I was when GlassesUSA.com contacted me to review a pair for their company. As someone who has been wearing prescription glasses since I was 7 years old, I'm constantly looking for new places where I can find stylish affordable eyewear.
One of the cool features of the Glasses USA website is their Virtual Mirror. It definitely helped me choose my frame. You can upload a photo of yourself and virtually try on different styles from around the website.
Here are some of the styles I tried...
|My Virtual Mirror Selections|
I decided on a pair of men's horned rimmed glasses. I've been wanting a more masculine pair to offset my super feminine ones and the DC 301 Black were just perfect.
I placed my order on Thursday May 17th and received my glasses early Wednesday May 30th through DHL. There was a slight hiccup with my shipment which the customer service department was quick to address, so with that and a holiday in the middle I received my order in 8 business days.
I like them a lot. As with most online glasses orders, they needed a little adjustment, which I was lucky enough to have my in house optician do, (my husband used to work at as an optician). After a slight nose pad adjustment they fit like a charm. They are very light weight and made from a solid material. I'm very pleased with the overall construction and fit. I'm always really cautious when I buy glasses online as I have a pretty wide face, so I never know what is going to fit or look silly, these glasses fit my face perfectly and I think I have the virtual mirror to thank for that. Overall, I'm super pleased.
Oh and before and I forget, they also send you a plastic prescription card, which I personally LOVED!
