Something I dreaded as a child was going to the eye doctor, and something I loved as a child was was going to pick out new glasses. For as much as I hated getting my eye dilated (those drops stung!) and having to do the air puff glaucoma test, it was all worth it when I got to pick out my styling new frames and show them off in class once they were ready. I've been wearing glasses since I was 5, so ya girl has HAD some looks over the years. Thick frames, small frames, square frames, round frames - they weren't all great, but neither were a lot of 2000s style.
Thankfully, the process of going to the eye doctor AND getting new, stylish frames have both gotten a lot smoother in the 26 years since I first had to start wearing glasses. No more dilation by drops or eye puff tests! Also, thanks to Zenni, no more extra trips to big retailers or optical stores to have the get the perfect glasses for you!
With my prescription and pupil distance (make sure to always ask for this), I was able to easily virtually try on any and all the frames on Zenni! I knew I wanted a couple of pairs from the very chic holiday collection, and I found the perfect two for me! I have gone with a square style for the last 5 years or so, they're very au courant - but even better in this smokey ombre color. A wonderful twist on the traditional solid black. To balance out those more classic frames, I wanted a more fun pair and these cat-eye frames with a smattering of sparkles along the top are just that! As good as the frames looked in the virtual try-on, they were even better once I got them in the mail. I was very surprised and impressed too with how lightweight both pairs feel. I also loved all the ways I could customize my lens add-ons, it allowed me to be price conscious while making the best affordable frames for me. Check out all of the holiday styles here!
