Oh look at me being impressed that I have to vote on the rights of myself, friends, loved ones, and random strangers. Fuck the plebiscite.

New season, new glasses, right? Glassesshop.com offered me a new pair of prescription glasses to welcome Spring, and of course I accepted. And guess what? They’re not purple!!


That’s right, I went for these grey ones, with a little silver sparkle to them :) As always, I’m impressed with the quality of the product, the accurate script and of course, even if I HAD paid for them, the price. I can get eyeglasses online for around $50, when it used to cost me upwards of $500 even with cheap frames at the local optometrist due to my coke-bottle grade prescription!

How much did your last pair of glasses set you back, including lenses? I think the last pair I bought from a retail store set me back over $500 and they weren’t even a “brand”.

That of course was before I realised you could, and trusted buying, glasses online. Being a brave, older-apparently-still-millennial, I’m used to paypalling away and having items shop up from all over the world, so, while it may seem strange to buy something so specialised from some place in the internets, it’s really just a matter of getting your Medicare-funding eyecheck every two years, making sure the optometrist writes down your full prescription, and setting about looking at all the colours and styles you can get with some button clicks … and for as little as $50! Honestly, the last pair I bought online only cost me $50 which included things like anti-scratch coasting and high density lenses for coke-bottle grade scripts like mine.

GlassesShop.com offered me some eyeglasses to flash around the internet and my real life from their range, and I decided to get these ones:

Fiona in red glasses

The Oversized Cateye or High Pointed Eyewear Vintage Inspired in red. ($29.95) I’ve never gone catseye glasses before, despite so many other kitty items in my life, and I can totally say I pull these off!

Fiona in green glasses

The other pair, the Lina Rectangle in Green have grown on me in time (and after some compliments on social media!) Again, this $29.95 pair is a departure from my usual style in that it’s a light colour with clean parts while I usually only wear solid dark colours these days. But I like it, and for that price why not have a pair for each day of the week? Afterall, people are always looking at your face.

I already have some prescription sunglasses from awhile back, but maybe next summer I’ll get another :)

Have you ever bough glasses online?
If you haven’t, maybe try GlassesShop.com, with the code GSHOT50 for 50% off frames with free standard prescription lenses :)

Firmoo glasses

Firmoo sent me a pair of frames with prescription lenses, and yet again they are really cool, and would have only set me back US$45 if I’d payed for them myself (yes, even with super thin lenses for my strong script!)

Black strappy heels

So I rocked them at the Kidspot Voices presentation where I got to meet a bunch of you! And these heels that I’ve had for ten years :p
