Last week I got an email from David Kind, asking if I was interested in trying out their glasses styling service. I had heard only good things about the luxury eyewear company and was so excited to see what they would pick for me.
I've worn glasses since my junior year of high school - so nearly twelve years. And during that time I think I've only had four different pairs of glasses. I wear them while driving at night, watching anything (sports, movies, plays, lectures) from a distance and watching TV. I tend to go with tortoise frames and every time I "upgrade" to a new pair, the lenses get a little bigger (it's like I get braver or something).
A few months ago, I had my eyes checked and we found that my eyesight had improved! My prescription went down a bit which the doctor said could be due to pregnancy. I think it might be due to the fact that now, with a little one, I spend WAY less time straining my eyes at a computer...
Either way, I was excited for a new pair of glasses and totally said "YES!" to David Kind and filled out a short style profile online and uploaded a photo of my face. A few days later a gorgeous box of glasses arrived in the mail. (Seriously the packaging was perfection.)
And then the good part!! Trying them on at HOME (with no make-up and slept in hair because that's how I roll 95% of the time). I have six days to decide what I like, share my thoughts on each pair, and send the full box back with my perscription information. It's easier and more fun than trying things on under the awful lights at the glasses store.
Ellerie laughed and clapped for each pair, which was flattering, but not helpful. Paul had two favorites. And I honestly loved them all (most were very similar to styles that I have had in the past - which makes sense and shows the stylist gets my style). But I am sort of on the fence about what pair to keep. Part of me wants to do something different (which would be the green pair #6 and the big frames #1).
What do you think? Any favorites? (Note that 4 and 5 are the same, just in slightly different colors.) I'd love to hear your thoughts!
PS : learn more about David Kind and schedule your own at home try-on with a stylist here. I just started following David Kind on Instagram and love this graphic of their frame colors (and the color names!). I was not paid to write this post, but I was provided a pair of glasses free of charge. As always, all opinions and text are my own.
