Quite by accident, I discovered another fabulous site called Coastal that sells prescription eyeglasses online and they just happened to be offering a special promotion where new customers get their first pair free. Free, you say? Free obviously fits into my cheapskate budget just fine.
So, because they were going to be free (which in my mind = guilt-free) and I'd already gone out on limb with my new vintage green cat eye specs and wood sunglasses, I decided to choose something out of the ordinary once again. Something I would never picture myself wearing. Nothing black. Nothing boring. Instead I chose the exact opposite. Clear acetate frames lightly tinted in a summery shade called Orange Pekoe. My decision led the quick realization that I had already broken my second rule. Oh yeah, I definitely could have pictured myself wearing these frames - back in the early 80's when I was in 5th grade. Just the thought of it made me shudder in horror. I honestly have no idea why I ordered them anyway.
|LOVE L740 Women's Frames - Orange Pekoe|
Also available in Cotton Candy, Passion Fruit, Black and Tortoiseshell.
I adore my new frames and wear them everywhere! The youthful color and vintage cat eye shape screams summertime and actually compliments my skin tone and face shape better than I ever would have imagined. I have absolutely no regrets! Ordering was easy peasy with the fancy schmancy try-on view that allows you to upload your own photo. Delivery was quick too - just two days!
