New Glasses from Firmoo!

So I've been dying for a new pair of glasses.  You know, a pair that I wouldn't be embarrassed to wear out of the house.  When Firmoo asked if I'd like to try out a pair from their site, I was like, duh!

Firmoo's site is full of different glasses, but I knew exactly what I wanted and went straight to the Wayfarer section and used the virtual try-on tool to see how they would look on my face.  I went with the .  I'd show you a screenshot of my virtual try-on, but I had just woken up, was unshowered, and may or may not have been out on the town the night before, so that's something I'm keeping to myself.  Instead, I'll share this lovely gem that my sister took.  Yum.

I did initially have some issues getting the virtual try-on to work, it turned out my picture was just too big of a file (d'oh!) so I shrank it down and then it worked perfectly.  Silly Macbook camera, your photo quality is just too dang good! 

My biggest question was how would I get ahold of my prescription.  In the past, I've always ordered contacts or glasses directly from my eye doctor so I was worried that asking for a copy of my prescription was like cheating on your hair dresser.  I even thought about cheating and using the prescription off of my contact box, but it turns out those prescriptions usually aren't the same.  Also, your prescription includes something called your Pupillary Distance.  I tried to measure my PD at home but was off by quite a bit.  It turns out asking for a copy of your prescription is no big deal.  Just do it.

Anyway, once I managed to get ahold of my prescription, it was easy sailing.  I submitted my order, and a week later a gorgeous new pair of glasses came flying my way.  I've gotten compliments on them from everyone, including both of my grandmothers and my hard to please sister.  Although to be fair, I was also told that both by my boyfriend and brother that they make me look like a caricature/cartoon character when I make faces.  Especially when I'm wearing my winter hat.  They may have a point.

Interested in trying out Firmoo?  New customers can get their first pair free, just click here to redeem.  Please note that this offer does not apply to designer eyewear.

I'm definitely going to be using Firmoo again.  I have my eye on some new prescription sunglasses, or maybe I'll buy someone a new pair for Christmas.  You know, as a merry way of saying, "I want your face to look better."

Note: While I did receive these glasses free of charge from Firmoo, all of the content and opinions in this post are my own.  


  1. I did a review of their glasses a couple of months ago on my blog, too! Mine were fake (since I don't actually wear glasses), but they were great quality! Yours look cute on you!

  2. I'm in the market for new glasses, and I love these!! xo, Julie

  3. You picked a great pair! I've had classes since I was very young (second grade) and it's taken me forever to actually be OK with wearing them in public. I have a similar Ray Ban pair that I now love!
