A Whole New Look With GlassesShop.com

As you might have noticed I am wearing glasses. Me getting glasses was quite inevitable as both my parents also have very bad eyesight. It all started back in 2009 with my first pair of glasses. I was only supposed to wear them whenever I needed it but I quickly noticed that I really liked the look of them on my face (besides the better eyesight). Everyone who owns glasses knows what a pain it is to actually chose a pair and how expensive they are. So you can imagine my excitement when the lovely Catherine from GlassesShop.com reached out to me and offered me a pair of their glasses.

GlassesShop.com is an online retailer for eyeglasses offering high quality while still being very much affordable. They offer not only a beautiful selection of glasses online but also prescription sunglasses which I think is so great (you can never have enough sunglasses, can you?). I know from experience that buying glasses is a very hands-on process as you have to see the frames on your own face. Well, GlassesShop.com offer a great service where you can use your own pictures to try on any glasses online. The best part for introverts like me: You don´t actually have to talk to an employee at the opticians that tells you everything looks great.

After trying on many glasses with my picture I opted for a Clifford Wayfarer model in Brown* which retails at an amazing $49,95. Honestly, these are absolutely gorgeous frames. I fell in love with them the moment I saw them and was absolutely thrilled that they suited my face as well. Many of my friends complimented me on them and couldn´t believe their price when I told them. I was also very happy that I could get them with my prescription lenses (of what use would they be to me otherwise?). But if you´re lucky enough to have perfect eyesight, you can also order them as a fashion statement with an option for the frames only or clear plain lenses.

Now is the quality as amazing as promised? I can honestly say that it is. Firstly, they arrived very neatly and safely packed at my house. They come in a simple yet elegant clear plastic box with the obligatory microfiber towel. I love the little box for storing them as I can always see which glasses are in there. I have compared the Clifford Wayfarer glasses* to my normal glasses by Imago which cost 6x as much (*gasp*). The only real difference I could make out between them was that the lenses from GlassesShop.com are not anti-reflective-coated. This is something that I needed to get used to but it definitely doesn´t justify the cost difference between both pairs.

The Clifford Wayfarer frame* feels sturdy and I´m not afraid to ever let them fall. After I had them adjusted to my face (which you can do for free at almost all opticians) they sit really comfortably on my face with no risk of them gliding off my nose. I didn´t want to scratch the actual lenses of both my glasses to compare quality but from the general feel of them I couldn´t make out great differences. I did notice that on the bottom the frames are smaller than lenses but this seems to be caused by my prescription as my Imago glasses have the same on the upside.

I´m honestly so in love with the Clifford Wayfarer glasses* and the service that GlassesShop.com offer. You definitely get a very high quality for a very affordable price. I don´t think I can justify the hefty price tag of my Imago glasses anymore. I´m already so tempted to buy a second pair of sunglasses. It´s never too early for that, is it? The best thing is, I have a coupon code for all my readers that´ll get you 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames excluded). Just enter GSHOT50 at checkout. If you were ever tempted to buy glasses as a fashion staple, get a second pair of glasses or are generally in need of prescription glasses but can´t afford the hefty price tag, now is definitely the time to get them!


Would you wear glasses as a fashion statement?

    1. Thank you. If you always wanted to I´d suggest to get yourself a cheap pair of frames & just try it out. I very much like mine not only because they help me see!

    1. Thank you so much. It´s so much fun to play around with the picture tool. I´ve found out that I look quite hideous in round glasses.

  3. You look amazing in glasses! I started wearing glasses six months ago and I even learned how to do my makeup in the case of wearing them every day! Happy Monday! x

    1. Thank you so much! That´s so great! I always struggled with my makeup as it looks amazing with the glasses off but when I put them on you basically see nothing. I think the biggest lesson is to go totally overboard with it all.

    1. Thank you. Yes, glasses are so expensive. I always cringe when I hear the actual price. I´m pretty glad that my parents paid for my first two frames.! Also don´t worry, I only got the comment once :)

  5. These glasses are amazing and they suit you very well! I have never worn real glasses but as a teen I had a pair of fake glasses because I really liked the look of them. xx

    1. Thank you so much! Yes, I remember fake glasses being very popular when I was a teen. But they always looked so obviously fake. I think nowadays they can easily be worn as a fashion statement.
