Revenge Of The Nerds – Chic Glasses (+ Firmoo GIVEAWAY)

About five years ago, I jumped around my opthamologist’s office in giddy happiness at the news that I needed glasses. I have always wanted glasses…the allure of the “sexy librarian”, “brainiac babe” and “pensive fashionista” looks greatly appealed to me.

As I happily accepted my prescription for corrective lenses for my very mild astigmatism (I told you – I really wanted glasses), I sped over to the optical store and picked out a pair of Gucci reading glasses.  At the time, I loved them. Their super narrow, jet black frame looked très chic at the time, but I’ll admit, they were a pain. Their extreme narrowness greatly limited my field of vision and I found myself bobbing my head wildly like a seizure-enraptured chicken while reading books, magazines and my beloved iPhone.

Fast forward a few years and www.firmoo.com came knocking at my door. They offered me a free pair of frames of my choice from their online store in exchange for my honest review.  The offer couldn’t have come at a better time too as I was sick to death of those ill-fitting Guccis. While I’m lucky enough to have medical coverage to offset the cost of new lenses, my health care only covered a portion of the cost of a pair of new frames…and with designer frames costing the same as a paddleboard and lessons, I’d rather spend the money on a paddle board and lessons.

I went ahead and made a video review of my new, beautiful Firmoo eyeglasses – a classic pair with blush/violet tortoiseshell frames for the incredibly low cost of $39. Add the affordable cost with super fast shipping, easy uploading of your photo to virtually try on their frames, along with uploading your prescription information – it’s just too easy to get a great pair of new eyewear.

Go ahead and check out the video and enter my giveaway for a free pair of eyeglasses! All you have to do is watch and like the video, and leave me a comment in the description box regarding why you need new glasses.

Enjoy and good luck!

    Those glasses look great on you…I would be nervous about buying glasses without trying them on, but it sounds like they have a great system of virtually trying them on

      I’m with you! I was totally nervous, but their virtual try-on feature worked out so well. Thank you for reading!

    I’ve been wearing specs since I was 5! I have horrible eyesight courtesy of my father, and I spent a good part of my life trying to get out of them. Until I started having to pay for my own stuff. Now I just go for whichever is cheaper, which of course is neither. Lol great read though!

      Haha! Awww! Glad you liked the post. Have you considered laser eye surgery? Expensive, I know, but may be well worth saving for…. Thank you for reading! xo

    My husband and I both wear glasses and don’t have any medical coverage. I’ve heard great things about Firmoo and I know that they’re less expensive so I’d love to give them a try. Thanks for the chance.

    Beautiful glasses and would love a pair. I am far sighted and I too had the very small ones that I couldn’t see properly. Heard great things about Firmoo and the purple frames are so chic on you and matches your lipstick. By the way what color is your lipstick, have to purchase that color. It’s gorgeous.

    Love your blog it’s like a mini store so many great things.

      Hi Carrie! Thank you so, so much for your kind words! I love those glasses too! If it’s pink, purple, lavender or blue, I’ll love it – haha!

      Firmoo is indeed great. I’m thrilled with the quality of the frames I have (both eyeglasses and sunglasses) and you just can’t beat the prices. As for the lipstick, it’s MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Touch, with Nyx Angel Food Cake lipgloss over it. Both colours are beautiful pinky nudes (the Touch is more on the brown side) that look very flattering on most skin tones. Go treat yo’self!

      Good luck with the contest!

    I need some stylish glasses! Mine are old and tired and, if I have to be honest, a little crooked… I hope they have some for people with little heads also.

    You look amazing as always xoxo

      Haha! Trust me, most frames are for people with normal and little heads like yours! If you win the contest, be sure to take measurements before ordering! Good luck, Allie! xo

      Right? Makes all the difference!

    Any chance they would let me try again? I never could get the glasses the last time around.

      Hey Jeff! Of course! I also sent you a facebook message regarding the last contest with a voucher code for you to get a pair of glasses. So sorry about that.

      Take care and happy drunken cycling!

    Ok, Im the only girl in a house with 5 boys!!! Hubby and 4 boys, and we all wear glasses OMG!!! They all get to be styled by mom with their eyewear, so it’s only fair I get a cool pair too!! I’ve been wearing them since tenth grade, but love a variety of eyewear due to my career of being a 3rd grade teacher too!! They are very vital to my every day needs, but being cute while doing it is important too!!! My hubby encouraged me to start a blog last year as well, loved reading your about me page…

    I’d love a new pair of specs. I like to change up my rims to fit my outfit. I’ve bought from firmoo before and loved the pair I got. They are incredible for the price!
