glasses, y'all

this picture was actually an accident but it looked better than all the dumb serious ones i took, so.

folks, forgive my absence.
i have been sick since CHRISTMAS EVE, and finally went to the doctor where they took one look at me, said "are you sure it's not the plague?" and sent me home with antibiotics.
so i'm on finally on the mend.

BUT today we're going to talk about glasses.
i have worn glasses since the 3rd grade.
i have the eyes of a 95 year old woman (they have deemed me technically legally blind.)
even my CONTACTS are a little too weak for these decrepit eyes.
so naturally, when i wear glasses, even the condensed lenses, they stick out from the frames about an inch on each side.
and i stick to contacts.

a couple weeks ago however, i was contacted by firmoo about ordering my own pair of glasses.
and y'all they have some great frames.
so i ordered a pair with a weaker prescription than my eyes require, and paired with my contacts they are fabulous.
plus, they're cute.

firmoo is cool because unlike other glasses companies, they have this really cool program where you can pick out a free pair of glasses, and all you have to pay is the shipping (check it out.)

they do prescription lenses and clear lenses as well, in case you are one of those fortunate people who has adequate vision.

my glasses came in this really protective case, along with a carrying case, a cleaning cloth, AND an eye repair kit to fix anything i need, so i'm basically like an optometrist now. 

thanks, firmoo! 


  1. Love them! I just contacted by a different company about doing the same thing and I picked large frames similar to yours. Mine are tortoise shell, and I'm excited to get them in the mail!

  2. your glasses are seriously the cutest thing! I am grateful for my good eyesight, but sometimes I just want a cute pair of glasses! I will have to check it out!! Darling blog!!
