Product review: Glasses Shop.

You know who needs glasses? Almost everyone! You know who needs sunglasses? Definitely everyone! Because the sun is a thing that happens to this planet. I have been wearing glasses for centuries, or more accurately, since I was 12 and have moved out of wearing contacts 90% of the time because glasses are cool. When scientists created prescription sunglasses, life as I knew it was instantly better.

Much like everyone else, I had always bought glasses in-store at outrageously expensive prices even though I didn’t care that a brand name was plastered on the side of it. When I learned that you could buy glasses online, I pulled an Archimedes and exclaimed “God bless the internet!” which is obviously what he meant by “Eureka!”

Recently, I went to and perused the huge selection of glasses frames to choose from. Naturally, there were about 8 pairs I wanted immediately but only grabbed the one. I decided to go with something I wouldn’t normally buy which are medium sized dark frames. No, I went with big sized dark and light frames. Living on the wild side is what I do often.

I have had quite a few comments on them and people asking me where they’re from. Glasses Shop! I took these bad boys on my Europe trip and they survived being tossed around in hostels and hiking the Bavarian mountains. I’d say that’s pretty solid.

So, I also decided to order a new pair of prescription sunglasses because the ones I have are about 5 years old and my prescription has definitely changed 100 times between then and now. If you’ve never had prescription sunglasses, I cannot recommend them enough.

When I was looking to order a pair of sunglasses, I noticed that when putting in my prescription, it only went up to a certain number. Meaning I am too blind for sunglasses, oye vey story of my life.

I asked their help services what to do about it and they got back to me within the hour. They said their sunglasses only go to a specific number, which I knew, and that I should just order a regular pair of glasses and tint them. Perfect. So that’s exactly what I did. It was sweet that they have a ton of different tinting colours (blue, green, pink, brown, yellow, grey, purple) and I decided to go with brown.

  1. I’m in complete agreement: Prescription sunglasses are better than indoor plumbing. Well, for the most part. Right now I’m having an intimate relationship with a pair of Gucci scrip sunglasses, and our love is deep. I go into panic attacks if I don’t know the exact location of my beloved at all times. (P.S. How does one become a supermodel for a glasses company? Is tawdriness involved? I don’t mind tawdriness, I just need to know what type of outfit to wear for the interview…)
