So I have this thing for big glasses. When I picked these out off of Firmoo.com I wasn’t quite sure how they would look on me. I used the Virtual Try on feature on their website and I didn’t even bother with using my own photo because the first stock photo that came up was of a girl with bangs and a similar face shape! Haha! The Virtual Try On display isn’t perfect, but it gives you enough of an idea as to what they will look like on you. I read all of the reviews, looked at the photos of them on the model, and decided on these. The prices are pretty unbeatable. The trade off is of course the ability to try them on and have them specially fit, but if you try on enough similar styles in the store you can choose wisely and have them fitted for a few extra bucks if needed! Mine fit perfectly!

If you’re looking to be frugal with your eye wear purchase but don’t want to skimp on quality - a company like here. If you’re a first time buyer, you can get a free pair - just pay for shipping! Pretty sweet deal! I should also mention that I don’t get any sort of compensation if you buy from them. I did however receive this pair for free to write a review on my experience with their company and product. Thankfully I have only good things to say! ;] It can get really awkward when you have to write a bad review! Hehe.

I want to mention that these lenses actually really surprised me. I’ve reviewed glasses from other online companies and been fairly satisfied, but the standard lenses have been, well, standard. The lenses that came in this pair are actually quite nice and don’t seem to have the glare issue that I’ve experienced with others. My prescription seems to be just fine as well, and the big frames? Well, I like looking through them even more than I thought I would! I do this thing where I try to look around the outside of my glasses because I’m used to wearing contacts and I get super dizzy, but that’s impossible to do with lenses this large! They came with a really nice hard case, a soft case, cleaning cloth, and a little tool to adjust them if needed. I got them pretty quickly too, which was surprising, as they’re based overseas! See- I really don’t have anything bad to say!


So, what do we think of the giant glasses on me? Yay or nay? I’m still a contacts girl at heart, but these are really fun - I can’t lie! If you happen to be one of those blessed individuals with perfect eyesight (curse you!), you can purchase all of their glasses (including these) as “fashion glasses” with plain lenses. I used to think people who wore “fashion glasses” were ridiculous .. but I’ve come around. Glasses are a pretty rad accessory and who am I to tell someone with perfect vision that they can’t wear cute giant glasses? That would be pretty rude of me! Let me know if you pick up a pair of your own! Thanks Firmoo for allowing me to review these!

Those glasses look great on you, I love the shape! They really suit your face. I've been thinking about getting new glasses for a while, I don't need a strong prescription but they make such a difference after a night of blog reading! Off to check them out now, thanks for the suggestion xo

I don't know how I feel about your glasses. I like them, but I don't, which I know doesn't make a lick of sense. I think it's the bottom portion of the frame, it kind of seems to be overtaking your face a bit. The width and style of frame are great, though :)

I know what you mean, Claudia! They're a little bit overwhelming. I think I'll wear them with certain outfits that call for that added crazy accessory! It's fun to play around with stuff like that sometimes! :)

Okay, I bought almost an identical pair back in 2008 from Zenni. I loved them at first, but they are overwhelming and tend to steal the show and overpower anything else you're wearing. Then again, you have mermaid hair and tattoos, so I think that advice is moot.

TLDR; they look good on you.

Hahaha, I love this comment so much - "mermaid hair and tattoos". I already look like a crazy person, so why not add giant glasses into the mix? ;) ;) I know exactly what you mean though.
