Let’s talk about specs.
A few months ago, I saw a post on a blog I read about an at home try-on kit from a new glasses company.
I had tried Warby Parker a while back, and I LOVE the concept of trying on glasses in the privacy of your own home, but they were all way too big for my face. I hopped over to the website she mentioned, Rivet & Sway, and saw a few options I really liked! I attempted contacts this summer and at some point in the fall most likely scratched my eye. I had shooting pains in my eyeball for ~2 weeks. Not fun. I have 3 months worth of contacts left, but I am afraid of them. I figured if I’m not wearing the contacts, I could try out some glasses!
For my kit, I chose:
I knew the Punchlines weren’t going to work, but they were so cute/different I needed to try them. And besides, what’s the point of at-home try ons if you don’t step out of your comfort zone?
I was really excited for the Six Shooters and Sweet Spots. Teal is my spirit color.
So then I got the glasses and sure enough the Punchlines were out. The Sweet Spots were also out, they were just too small and the total wrong shape for my face.
Initially I thought the Six Shooters were too big for my face. I really hate the granny-glasses trend. But I couldn’t stop putting them on. You have the try-ons for 3 days and I had them over a long weekend…and 3-4 times a day, I’d go get them and put them on. I sent a picture to my friend Elyse saying “These are slightly too big, aren’t they?” She said “Yea I think so, but they are very you.”
I posted a picture to twitter:
and got really positive responses! I decided to go for it! I put them in my cart and…waited.
For what? I don’t know. But apparently waiting for a week was the right thing because they emailed me with a 50$ coupon. I ordered them instantly and it has been love ever since.
I only got glasses at age 20, so this is only my 3rd pair, but they are by far my favorite. I liked my first pair, they fit my face well enough, but they never felt like me. These teal glasses are ALL ME.
Rivet & Sway, as a company, was awesome too, reaching out via phone and email to see how the try-ons were going and once I bought the glasses emailing me to thank me!
They also gave me a $50 coupon to share! If you enter KATSWAYS at checkout, you can get 50$ off your glasses (bringing every pair on their site down to a cool 149$!). Not bad for frames and lenses! I will even forgive them for calling me Kat, since I love my glasses so much. The coupon is valid until 5/15/13 so you’ve got time to try some frames and hem and haw like me.
I get nothing from this, they didn’t ask me to blog about them, I just really love my new glasses!
