They finally came! They finally came!
I ordered new glasses on freaking August 2, and they finally came! (Only 18 days later!) Finally!
Ordered from Zenni Optical for less than $20 INCLUDING SHIPPING.
They are just plain black, square, plastic frames. They cost $8 and I got the $4 anti-glare coating on 'em.
I needed them for reading/computer/close work (such as crafting) because, as you will already know if you follow me on Twitter, I get terrible headaches every single day, most likely due to eye strain. And since I have a different prescription in each eye, I couldn't just hop over to Walmart to get a pair of $2 reading glasses, but I wasn't thrilled at the idea of spending $200+ on a pair of prescription glasses either. So when a friend of mine on Twitter suggested Zenni Optical, I figured it wouldn't hurt to spend $20 and see if reading glasses actually help my headaches or not before I invest a big chunk of money on a "nice" pair.
So, I think they look really cute, but I'm not used to them yet (since it's only been like, an hour), and so far they are giving me a headache, which is the exact opposite of what I want them to do, but Devon says that's normal and I just have to get used to them and then it'll be ok.
So I'll let you know how the headache thing goes. :)
Also check out the ADORABLE glasses case I had my favorite seamstress Madame Cupcake make for me! She makes the cutest damn pouchies so of COURSE I thought of her for a glasses case. And it's all reinforced with felt and padding, so as long as I'm careful, they probably won't get crushed in my purse, hehe. Thanks Lisa!! :)
Ok, off to test these babies on a book! Ta-ta!
