It hadn't occurred to me to buy glasses online until Firmoo.com approached me about writing a review. The funnest part of shopping for sunglasses is getting to try several pairs, right? Well, you can still do that on their website - Firmoo offers a Virtual Try-On system. All I had to do was upload a photo of me looking straight ahead, select my PD (am I the only one out there that doesn't know my Pupilliary Distance? I guessed ... badly and had to upload a few times until the sunglasses fit my face correctly. It would have been frustration-free if the widget let me change the PD value without having to go through entire process each time), click on my pupils and I was all set to browse!
I virtually tried on almost every pair of wraparound frames to see which ones fit my face shape the best. Although big frames are a 2013 fashion trend, I prefer them anyway because they better prevent UV rays AND wind from more angles. It was a tough decision, but the red sunglasses, style #OTO3502, I'm modeling to the left eventually won out over the purple tinted glasses above. Not only will the red match my swimsuit, but the silver hinge design is hot!
The glasses arrived a week later and I was impressed before I even wore them. They came packaged in a hard plastic case that fits easily in my purse so I don't have to worry about accidentally snapping yet another pair. Also included was a velvety pouch, polishing cloth, extra screws AND eyeglass screwdriver.
The sunglasses are comfortable to wear and have been great for driving in the spring sunshine. So much so that I joined their affiliate program and added a button to my blog sidebar so I can hopefully earn enough to buy the purple pair, too. Firmoo even offers every new customer a pair of free glasses (including prescription lenses!), just as long as they pay shipping. Have you taken advantage of their cheap eyewear frames yet?
