Minus the Trenchcoat: "Psst! Hey Lady...Cheap, Prescription Glasses!!"

WOULD THIS
GLASS-WEARING FACE
LIE TO YOU???



I swear to God that I'm not getting a kick-back from this site---heck, Aveeno still hasn't sent my check. I just want to pass this little bit of loveliness your way.

A few co-workers of mine were talking about prescription glasses and I delicately (steamrolled) my way into the conversation when I heard the phrase, "....and they're so cheap! How can you lose?" So, click here and browse their selection. All you need to do is pick out some frames, send them your prescription (and your first-born son, but that's only with bifocals...), and VOILA! Seriously cheap, prescription glasses or sunglasses.

I'm a wearer of the glasses. When I drive, I'm also a squinter/hand-shielder/too-short-for-the-visor-to-matter sort of gal. I've NEVER had prescription sunglasses! Each year, I usually get 2 pairs of glasses....I never seem to think of getting sunglasses. I'm definitely going to look into those, too. Yes, summer is almost over, but still, um, the sun will still be here. In the morning? Sun. In the afternoon? Sun (Am I campaigning for the sun?) (I think I'm campaigning for the sun.) (Do you think the sun is a Democrat?) (I hope so, or my parents are going to be very disappointed in me.) And with winter coming up, I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with SNOW BLINDNESS. I'M BLIND! I'M BLIND! (and then you pull into the garage) OH MY GOD, I'M NOT BLIND!!

So, follow me over to the cheap-o site. What have we got to lose? About 20-30 bucks? Also, 2 of my co-workers have received their glasses and they're very happy with them and the frames are too cute.

Some of the frames I'm looking at are, well....To quote "Suede" from Project Runway....they're a little bit "whack-a-doodle" but really, so am I so I think I can pull them off. And maybe I'll get sick of them after a few months, but they're so cheap! I'd spend more money out eating sushi.

Here are my selections.....I'll probably end up getting all 3.

As a wearer of glasses since kindergarten (little red Sally Jessie style specs), I am a BIG fan of the prescription sunglasses. Definitely seasonless. What I am not a fan of is pulling off the glasses to put on the sunglasses, pulling off the sunglasses to switch back to the glasses. Both are always in need of adjustment. I actually just made a stop at Lenscrafters over the weekend to get them adjusted and look for a new pair. The blue ones in my pic are by far my faves - discontinued by that Calvin Klein bastard - and I want to find something similar. I was also thinking about trying Transitions to eliminate the on-again, off-again...kind of pricey though. Ugh...poor use doomed to glasses.

Lymlyt: Ooo...I do like the blue ones! I usually go the Lens-Crafter route but I end up spending a LOT. The frames I pick are ALWAYS in the expensive category. Drives me nuts. Could I find something in the 2 pair for 69.00? Noooooo. So, that's why I'm going to this site. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Tits-screw my friend.

Hint: your links need to be corrected so they don't have blogger.com in front of them. Otherwise you get a 404 error.

The Over-Thinker said...

Jess/Vampira: OOOooo Ray Bans! You is fancy-time!

Sra: I can't remember!? Is tits-screw good? Thanks heaps for telling me about the links. I've fixed them up good.

I love the stripey ones.

The Over-Thinker said...

Hills: I like 'em, too---weird, but good. A little bit Bjork + Elvis Costello. Wait, they're both assholes. Damn, are those glasses assholes??

Meg said...

I like all those glasses!
I wonder if they ship to Canada...

Memarie Lane said...

I love glasses but don't need them, wonder if I can get some plain see-through ones.

Marissa said...

I realize it's not a vote, but I pick #1 anyway.

Damn my perfect eyesight.

Once your purchases arrive, I expect a fashion show!!

i especially like the middle ones, mostly because I ACTUALLY HAVE THOSE! mine are kind of dark copper color and i have gotten lots of compliments. i dare not go to the cheap-o site, because i did not get mine there! [well, i could always use a few more pairs of glasses, maybe i will check them out...] oh and p.s. get all three.
