Four Eyes

Before we talk about the fact that I am holding a book in my arm for a photoshoot.
Or that I have some sweet new glasses on, lets approach the big elephant in the room.
Which hair.

These photos are for anyone that has ever told me that my pictures always look so perfect.
These photos go out to you. I swear, before I took the pictures, I thought I looked awesome.
And that was also before I asked my very UN-observant husband to take photos of me.
In which he replies to my constant complaining with "Why do you ask me then?"
How do you not notice the separated bangs? That can't happen. Or the trillion fly away hairs?
I can photoshop zits and rolls and wrinkles. But I stop at 1000 random wisps of hair 
floating around the circumference of my head.

Now, that we got that out of the way, lets talk about my new glasses, shall we?
Well, I got them from firmoo, which honestly is a pretty fab online eyeglasses store.
And when I say honestly, I mean honestly.

Jeff and I seriously spent several hours playing with the Virtual Try-On System, that lets you
upload your photos to "try on" your glasses. It's really worth it, because I think the highest
priced glasses I saw on the entire website were $70, which come on, is pretty amazing.
I won't even tell you what we spent on Jeff's glasses in the mall, but multiply that by about five. 

But whats even moreso is that the lowest price on firmoo is $10! I'm not kidding.

Another really awesome thing about firmoo is that the first pair your order from them
is FREE. Did I just say that? Uh, yeah... All you have to pay is the shipping. Why wouldn't
you want to try it? Sheesh.

Maybe you are thinking, Gosh, I really love the glasses she chose. She looks so amazingly
trendy. She wears em just like the kids these days. I have truthfully been wanting a new pair
of glasses this exact style for several months, but I wasn't absolutely in NEED of glasses so
I was hesitating on buying them. THIS is the style I picked. If your first pair weren't already
free, this style was only $26! And yes, they are prescription!

Tell me what you guys think. Do you like them on me or what? Here is my only 
problem with the entire deal. I loved the website. Super easy and of course super fun.
I love the prices. I think that the first pair free is a great deal. Duh!! And I actually 
really love the glasses...from the front.
I don't know if it's just me being picky, but I think the nose pad might be a little thick...
or something? It just looks very obvious to me. Again, I tend to be a little critical of myself
(not to mention self conscious) in case you couldn't already figure it out, so it might just be me 
wondering if people will be staring at me weird because of it.

All in all though, at the very least, I'd say give the website a look. If you have your 
prescription on hand, the only other thing you need to make sure you have is your 
PD (pupillary distance). My prescription didn't say it, but that's probably because last time
I went in I didn't go in for glasses so they didn't measure that in particular. And I didn't happen
to have a millimeter ruler nearby. Jeff tried an APP on his phone that was supposed to measure it,
but it kept giving me different numbers so we just averaged them out.

I love them and I love firmoo too! Just got my freebee pair. I'm super obsessed. My husband won't even take photos of me for the blog. He litterally laughs and then makes fun of me for days. I'd still kick his ass for separated bangs and flyaways though. LOL.
Love you and your book that you are holding.

Alyson McMahon said...

I LOVE them! Love love love them. They look great on you and I totally wouldn't have even noticed the nose pad if you hadn't mentioned it. I can't wait to order mine! You crack me up with the separated bangs & flyaways. Matt would never notice those either! haha

Karri said...

Love them! I think we may have the same ones, though ;)

And your hair? Looks just fine to me :)

Lisa @ MMT said...

I think you are crazy because you look great in these photos! I'm over conscience about my looks and photos too, so I totally understand but I just thought you should know that I would have never noticed the bangs or fly always! Your glasses are so cute! I'm thinking about ordering a pair of new ones but I could never pull off this style lol. Thanks for all the info!

Hanna said...

You look gorgeous Julie! I love my firmoo glasses too. I got sunglasses.
I think your hair is great and never would have thought you didn't want it just that way. Seriously, it looks great.
I do the same thing though.

TicoTina said...

so funny, I totally wouldn't have noticed the hair! I think the nose part is totally fine, wouldn't notice it either - nerdy is in right now =) I'm a little nervous to get mine because I'm afraid they're going to be really huge. (I just realized they've been sitting at the post office for awhile, der) I, too, wanted a new pair for a long time but didn't really "need" them either. I'm sure it'll only be a year until we "need" a new style again. blah to that!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Whatever, I would still totally steal your hair lady. You're nuts!

Sandra said...

I really like the frames! They totally suit you! I didn't notice the nose pad until you mentioned it, but I don't really focus on it. Great purchase! :)

Dalayna Dillon said...

I love those glasses on you! They look super cute.
