Two things: 1. I love sunnies. 2. This post is in no way sponsored by the brand i’m about to rave about.
Why do I love sunglasses? Well, they protect your eyes from the sun and they’re super stylish. In my opinion everyone needs a great pair of sunnies to make your summer wardrobe complete. As a person who wears glasses the struggle of finding sunglasses that work is pretty challenging. I don’t wear contacts (the thought of putting something in my eyeball freaks me out) so I wear my glasses pretty often. But, that means I need prescription sunglasses and those are pretty darn expensive.
For years I only had 1 pair of prescription sunglasses and they were the best investment I’ve ever made, but, it was so hard seeing all the cool sunglasses at Target and knowing that I could buy them and have to risk not having great eye sight to look cool. I had a couple cheap pairs of sunnies for just hanging out but whenever I actually needed my eyesight, like when driving, I had to put on my boring prescription ones.
If only I could have cool, inexpensive prescription glasses I’d be all set for summer. Oh wait! I can. I’ve semi-recently discovered Firmoo and placed an order back in March. I’ve been obsessed with my sunglasses ever since. All sorts of bloggers and YouTubers have been talking about Firmoo for a long time now and I finally decided to see what all of the fuss was about.
Seeing as i’m going on vacation in a month and my current sunnies were past their prime I wanted to get new shades that i’d feel comfortable wearing all day while walking around. I love the wayfair style without the Ray Ban price so I was on a mission.
Boy did they deliver. These are perfect for me. And they could be perfect for you too. The best part about the Firmoo site is that there are so many different ways to search for sunglasses. Searching by size is what worked the best for me because I had a wayfair style regular glasses I liked I just searched by that size and went a bit bigger. You can also chose the lens color which is pretty awesome.
Have I mentioned their lenses start at $39.00 a piece? There’s no beating that. Yes, you will pay to upgrade some things like the lens color or if you need special sizing but that’s still way less expensive than the ones you’d get from an eye doctor. All you have to do is add your prescription, customize your frames and add it to your cart.
Oh, and in addition to being inexpensive? They frequently have sales going on or coupons you can take advantage of. If you sign up for their emails you get 15% off your first order and if you search for them on Retail Me Not you can often find even better deals. I just so happened to find a 2 for 1 coupon and go these babies as well.
I love a good aviator (similar). Plus, it’s always great to have two pairs of sunglasses. Some outfits just look better with aviators. Am I right? Anyways, the only annoying thing about these is that when I was filling in my prescription it wants to know your PD or “pupillary distance”. Now, my prescription didn’t have this and I really had no idea what it was. So, I kinda just filled in an answer after googling what an average one was. My wayfair style glasses came in fine but my aviators are a bit narrow. They look fine in pictures but they look a tad wonky in person. They’re very narrow on the bridge of my nose, but hey, it’s not bad and it’s my own fault. My suggestion is to ask your eye doctor about this before ordering glasses from this website.
So in love. And I only spent $55.95 for both. I had to pay $10 extra because of the small PD, I think? I’m honestly not too sure but the wayfairs were free so I can’t complain. Definitely be sure to check for coupons if you’re going to order from them. Oh, and did I mention they sell regular glasses as well? BAM. Never buying overpriced lenses at the eye doctor again.
You’re welcome :-]
Question of the day: Do you have to have multiple pairs of sunnies like me to be happy or are you cool with just one good pair?
*again, this content is in no way sponsored by Firmoo, but if they’d love to give me some free sunglasses i’d be more than happy to oblige. :-]
