Glasses.com Summer Specs–“Your identity is a work of art.”

Glasses.com hosted a preview of their summer styles on the elegant roof of Gramercy Park Hotel. I always thought of my glasses as an unfortunate necessity rather than a fashion statement. Until recently, I wore contacts during the day and only relied on my glasses for nighttime TV binges. But in the last year or so, I’ve been wearing my glasses most days. Ever since becoming a mom, I’m just TIRED and contacts make my eyes feel even more tired. The glasses I’ve been wearing are okay, but not particularly stylish.

Before the event, I filled out a “style survey.” When I arrived, I was given the results, which were spot-on. I’m “retro-chic.” No surprise since I’m addicted to vintage clothes shopping and my husband is a retro-jazz musician!
This summer style trends were on display, including Glasses.com first exclusive collection, Kensington Road, a “highly-stylized London look.” I got a tutorial on their 3-D Virtual Try-on App for iPad, iPhone and Android. It’s awesome and will make shopping for glasses from home my preferred method. I also found out that they offer completely free, no questions asked returns.
The Bumbys, a unique performance art group, were on hand to add some off-the-wall fun. These masked typists wear headphones so they can’t hear your voice while typing up “A Fair & Honest Appraisal of Your Appearance.” It’s not as terrifying as it sounds! A small excerpt from mine reads, “You are an ace law school student who harbors a very secret power and unleashes that power at night while making law review and getting the best grades in your class.” Maybe the glasses fooled them.
I think glasses.com just became my go-to for choosing new frames. I can already picture the hours I’ll waste virtually trying on specs. Maybe I can get a pair to go with each new vintage dress!

  1. Sun Glasses are very beneficial and most amazing thing. Glasses makes the grace of our style.

  2. I buy glasses online and found http://www.eyeglassuniverse.com to have a fantastic selection of glasses frames and great prices up to 70% off retail. Recently I saved about 50% off the price I paid Walmart just two years ago for great eyeglasses online. You might like to take a look too.
