Who said looking like a nerd was out? If you read this DIY post on now sew bow-ties, you’re probably aware of my love for this charming accessory. When I bought this blue plaid shirt for less than 15$ at Simons, I knew I’d pair it with a white bow tie and glasses at least once, for a perfect nerdy look.
Now, let me tell you the story behind these new glasses. A few weeks ago, I saw a first-pair-free ad from Clearly Contacts and decided to look into it, while being skeptical about it. I looked through the selection of glasses on which the promotion applied and found these round birch frames from Derek Cardigan. I couldn’t go back then, I already loved them. I compared the measurements with my own eyeglasses to make sure they’d fit my narrow face, filled out my prescription on the website and entered the promotional code at checkout. Yes it was real. The frames and lens were free, and I only had to pay 16$ for shipping and handling. Can you believe it? Free glasses? No way! Still, I was a little skeptical about the quality (you don’t get much when it’s free these days!), but for as little as 16$, I thought it was worth the try! I was blown away when the packaged arrived a few days later. The lenses were perfectly adapted to my sight, and the shape of the frames fitted my face perfectly. The only thing I had to adjust were the branches. (With hot water and slight pressure, I did a pretty good job!). Now I am proudly wearing those statement eyewear and thanking god for the great deal!
What’s fun about this bow tie? It’s an hair clip that I turned into a collar accessory! Remember I wore it here too?
