So once I got my prescription I came home and ordered my frames from a website that has FaBuLoUs deals! In the past my glasses were purchased locally.. it does make it a little easier to actually physically try on frames you like to see how they suit you. But with the amount of money I was saving I decided to take a chance. Before finding out about the site from a relative I had a pair of $180.00 frames picked out (Ray-Ban) and my lenses were probably gonna cost another $150.00 plus any extra coatings on the lenses and tax. It would most likely be close to $400.00 for just one pair.
From the site I purchased not 1 but 2 frames with lenses included for about $240.00 *YAY*
Nowhere in town could I find cute vintage style frames.. but this site had about 15 choices. My favorite brand if your in the market for vintage style, without actually buying vintage frames. Had to be the ones Lucky Brand makes. I had a hard time choosing from 3 different Lucky brand vintage style frames.. but FINALLY much to my family's happiness I made the choice and clicked the button.
And since in he beginning I was gonna get some Ray-Bans I decided for my second pair to stick with that style.
So here is what I chose..
Frame choice one: Lucky Brand Maude (In black)
I am hoping these look as good on my face as some other styles similar that I tried on. I also have always loved shamrocks and Irish stuff so I adore the little shamrock placed at the end of the arm. These framed come in a few colors but I went with black thinking it would go with everything .
