New look for a new year

When I was a young buck, I wanted glasses .... that wish came true in 5th grade when I ended up actually needing them after squinting to see the board.  A few years later, I oddly dreamed about contacts, braces, etc. (not sure why).  It's funny how you want what you don't have, and then once reality hit I was ready to kick them all to the curb.  Next thing, yes I want lasik - LOL!

Until then, I have to deal with crappy vision insurance that is as bad as it comes.  It allows me either glasses OR contacts each year.  Even then the 6mth contact supply and in-network Walmart glasses to choose from are nothing generous or glamorous, so I was on the hunt for cheap glasses from a company I could trust.  Sierra at Ocean Dreamers posted about GlassesUSA.com, so I thought I'd let the searching begin for a practical pair of eye glasses.

I was really daring, and thought I'd just try it out as the glasses are a fraction of the price.  I went with a safe bet and hoped they would fit my face .... and they did.  Hubby gave me a thumbs up :)

I am loving my new glasses!!


*With my recent order they gave me a code for 10% off my next order - and even you can use it too since I get to share it with all of you.  Use Blog10 at checkout and let me know if you find a pair!  Maybe .... I will check out their prescription sunglasses next!

Cute glasses! Looking good!

CMae said...

I want Lasik! But its sooooooo expensive!!!!! My insurance is the same way--- either glasses or contacts they don't wanna cover both! luckily for me, I never wear my glasses...only if something happens to my eyes from my contacts.

Mrs. Pick said...

They look great! Was it hard finding glasses online? How did you know they'd look right?

Ashley said...

Michele said...

Thanks for passing along the good deal. I really like your new glasses :) I had to get glasses in the 5th grade too...and I was excited about it! Go figure.

Caroline said...

I am as blind as a bat and love love love my glasses. You look great in yours!! Yay for glasses! xo

Miranda said...

SUPER CUTE! Love the style of the frames!!

Natasha said...

i think you look gorgeous friend!!!

Beth said...

Those are cute! I have the same vision insurance type thing... so last year, when I needed to update my glasses, it was a pretty penny spent to have both contacts and new glasses. Next time I get them I'll have to check this out! I like the look. :)

Christa said...

LOVE your glasses...they look great on you!

Meghan said...

You look gorge! Nice choice!

Ashley said...

Cute choice! They look great on you!

Sarah said...

I love your glasses!! I have brown plastic frames--and you're right...you want them until you get them. I'm too scared of getting lasik though...I'm afraid something may go wrong!! The vision insurance for educators is horrible!!!!! My glasses ended up costing over $400--frames and lenses together. next time I may have to check out the place you got yours!

Liesl :)

Neha said...

Fab New look!

I too always wanted to wear glasses and ended up having to wear one in 7th grade. I loathe them now though!

Just Add Walter said...

they look great on you -- I am getting a new pair really soon too!

Jamie Pickle said...

Very cute. I am going to need new glasses soon, so I will check them out.

Meghan said...

so super cute. i'm a big fan of glasses. :)

xoxo

I read Sierra's review, and I was skeptical. But now with yours, I think I'm sold! I'm still leery about buying glasses online because glasses I scope out before I go to the store to try on almost never look good on me, but I might give it a try. My last pair of lenses (I kept my old frames) cost me close to $300, so I'm all for a break.

Rachel said...

Cute - they look great on you! And I definitely wanted glasses AND braces when I was in middle school. I thought I'd be the coolest kid ever if I had them, ha.

Jayme said...

Just happened upon your blog - so cute! Thanks for the tip about the glasses...just got my first-ever prescription and need to order some myself.

New follower here!

Jax said...

First, you look GREAT in those glasses! And um.. your hair is gorgeous, girl! I love how long it's getting!!

Second, my insurance isn't horrible (it was HORRIBLE at my last job) but it's definitely not stellar, so I have to pick between contacts or glasses each year, too. And my glasses Rx is SO out of date. I really want some new ones, but man alive they're pricey. This is a great idea!

It's just such a pain to rely on contacts b/c there are days when my eyes are definitely strained and I need glasses, but I dont have any that are current. I'm rambling, but yay for this post! :)

OceanDreams said...

Kelsey - so glad you took advantage of the code discount, lol! thanks for the mention. i really have been thinking about getting a new pair myself! you look amazing and you'll have to post a pic of your sun glasses too. ;0)

Laura@Cowboy Boots said...

u wear them well!! i'd look like a dork! my face is weird shaped.

funny you say that about being a young buck..my mini me is in 4th grade and wished she had them...come to find out she REALLY does need them. I told her if she's gonna wish for stuff wish for a new kitchen and walk in pantry haha

Nicole-Lynn said...

Your hair is getting so long! Love it! Cute glasses too!
