When I started this blog I hoped to share my insights about fashion and how to look good without spending a fortune on an outfit.
I guess bargain hunting must run through my veins because my savvy shopping extends much more than clothes, shoes and bags – I also like to shop around for life’s necessities.
For example – glasses!
I used to be the kid in the back row at school squinting at the board.
Then I was that same kid in the middle row.
But it was only when I sat front and centre and still couldn’t see the board I knew it was time to accept my fate and go get a pair of dreaded specs!
Ohhhkay. This is just getting ridiculous now…
Glasses today don’t carry the (a)stigma (geddit?!) as they used to. Nerd can be chic…and when investing in your glasses you can afford to choose something a little special.
Setting out to find good quality yet inexpensive frames proved quite easy when I went online to visit Clearly Contacts (www.clearlycontacts.com.au)
Frames are sooooo reasonable and the range is pretty impressive…Literally HUNDREDS of frame jump out at you.
Start your search by frame, designer, style or material…helpful for those fashion conscious or those looking for a particular shape.
Still unsure of what suits you? Upload a picture of yourself to virtually try on frames or you can wing it like I did.
If you know your prescription you can punch it in, or simply head out for an eye test – they are bulk billed. Once you’ve got the numbers you can fill in the details into the form. It’s super easy, and if you are having a trouble a customer service rep is on hand ready to answer your enquiry.
Maybe this isn’t the sight (oh wow I’m full of the bad puns today!) you want if getting glasses is a maiden voyage, but for old professionals like myself it was a walk in the park.
Clearly Contacts stock contacts too, (duh!) and the glasses dept. features brands such as Gucci, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Lacoste.
Check out my pair – a funky brand called LOVE. They were $89 and I think are pretty jazzy.
Or- if you are more traditional, check my friend Jen’s specs- so professional! These R. Hardy frames retail at $89 also.
So, check it out next time you’re in the market for glasses or contacts!
Happy Chaps with our FANCY NEW FRAMES!
Ordering at the click of a button means less time at the optometrist and more time seeing the world!
