As a graphic designer, I am 80% of the time on the computer, and it has taken a toll on my eyes. I have been on and off with eyeglasses since I was five. My eyes always seemed to correct themselves.

My closet is a graveyard for neglected glasses frames that will never dress my eyes again. I had gone through at least 5 pairs of glasses before I hit middle school. I think my mother was grateful I didn't need them in middle school but by college, I found I needed them again. The pair I wanted were too expensive so I was stuck getting some that didn't fit my head very well because they were the less expensive choice. Two years ago, I got the two for one special, but of course only a select few were on that special, none of which fit me at all, but all I could afford.

Last year a friend told me she had gotten a pair of online glasses, so I looked at and got a deal on a pair of Vera Wang gunmetal frames, but unfortunately they sit very low on my face (the downside sometimes to doing online shopping for glasses--you don't get to see what you look like in them). Then Warby Parker frames. They send you free pairs to try on and then you can make your decision. Great idea, but I couldn't afford them! The pursuit continued.

I just found a website where I can do a virtual look of what the glasses look like on me. I've been having way too much fun with this thing.


So far I have narrowed it down to these three:

I like the one on the top and the last one too. I want something classic, but fun and that will go with what I like to wear. What say all of you? If you are interested, is running discount right now: 15% off + get free shipping on your entire order (orders over $50). Code: FS15
