I *Need* New Glasses!

(This is a sponsored post)

I am so fed up with my current glasses, honestly. I can throw together the cutest, quirkiest outfits, but I never replace my glasses for two reasons: 1) I don't wear them all the time and 2) I have no idea how to shop for eyeglasses or what looks good on me! Seriously, I can pick clothes, but I'm totally lost as to what looks good on my face. I normally get fed up, buy the cheapest frames I can find, and stuff them in a drawer until I really need them. And I almost never wear them out, like I did this past weekend!

This was The Hubster and I Saturday night. We went out at the last minute and I didn't bother getting all done up. Those glasses are probably close to six years old!

I know the prescription is wrong, but they are better than nothing. I thought the frames were OK when I bought them, but when I see pictures of myself in them, I'm less than thrilled. That's the problem. I'm lost when it comes to glasses! That's why I was actually kind of thrilled when GlassesUSA.com contacted me about doing a post for them!

I'm very much from the old school way of buying glasses - you know, making an appointment, going to the eye doctor's office, dark exam room, standing in front of racks of eyewear, and trying on frames until they all start to blend together. I had never actually thought of purchasing eyeglasses online!

When I was doing some research for this post, I was really impressed with the wide variety of styles that GlassesUSA offers! And they have frames in every price range, as well, which is great for me. Not to mention, no trip to the eye doctor's office (now that I have my current prescription in hand. LOL) And how cool is this? They have a Virtual Mirror where I can check out how I look without the creepy assistant pushing some expensive frames on me!

I don't spend a ton on glasses, because I just don't wear them all the time. I normally wear contacts, but at these prices, I can order glasses that I will love and maybe even a pair of prescription sunglasses, as well! Plus, I can shop at my convenience, from my bed if I want, and spend all the time I need to find a pair of glasses I can really fall in love with. I'm really excited to finally get a new pair - maybe even these!
