Why? What's wrong with your eyes? Can you not see? Aren't things clear when you look at them? What are the letters on that piece of paper over there?
We can say that I was just a tad quizzical.
But you can't blame me when my vision is as poor as it is. Combine my own extreme need for glasses with my husband's nearsightedness, and it's really only a matter of time before one or both of our girls are beginning to squint.
While I don't look forward to that day, at least I know that there are far more opportunities to find selection, style and affordability than there were back when I got my first frames. These days, it's easy to find trendy, fashionable glasses while taking advantage of a huge savings thanks to great sites like KateReese.com.
A fun and easy way to shop for eyewear online, Kate Reese is a place where you can find the best designer brands at great prices. With a refusal to stock cheap or imitation products, the site has eliminated the middleman to bring you lenses at factory prices and an overall ultimate online shopping experience.
If you've always thought that buying glasses online must mean the results are flimsy, generic and out-of-style, then one visit to Kate Reese to see the amazing brands that they stock (Anne Klein, Burberry, Catherine Deneuve, Coach, D&G, Prada, Ray Ban, Guess, Harley and more!) should change all that.
Knowing that I was in need of a change from my standard black glasses, I loved looking through the various color options that Kate Reese has to offer. Although some of the brighter, more unique frames caught my eye, when I came upon the Success SPL 33, I knew that they were just the right mix of fun and practical.
The first time I was introduced to ordering glasses online, I immediately wondered how it was possible. After all, this is an item you're going to wear on your face day in and day out, doesn't it make sense that you'd want to actually try them on before making a decision?
However, Kate Reese makes it simple to virtually do just that in two easy ways.
First, the frame measurements. By being able to compare the Success SPL 33 to the current glasses that I wear, I had no problem looking at the dimensions and knowing how well they would fit my face.
Second, you can literally try on glasses virtually right at your computer thanks to the technology on Kate Reese's site. With the click of a button, you can get a general idea of the glasses on a model or, with a few more clicks, you can upload a photo of yourself from your computer or Facebook or even use your webcam to get a live shot (or two, if you would like to see varying viewpoints).
Place the glasses on the model or yourself and there you are trying them on!
Not too shabby, right?
When my package from Kate Reese arrived, I couldn't wait to try these frames on in person and see how they really looked. Right away I appreciated the simple, stylish packaging...
...and, as I unpacked the crisp tissue paper, inside I found my Success SPL 33 frames stored safely in a lightweight hard case with a handy cleaning cloth.
As I had been able to see all of the dimensions and try these frames on right online, I wasn't surprised when I placed them on and they fit very well. The lenses were crisp and clear and my eyes didn't need to adjust at all, as the prescription was perfect. Love them!
As a bonus for someone like me who requires higher power lenses, these frames do an excellent job of concealing them and not leaving me showing off extremely thick glass. Combine that with the red (but not in-your-face red) coloring and the modern, slim look and these are now my glasses of choice that I reach for each and every day.
Great for adding something stylish but also different to my wardrobe, these Kate Reese glasses have been a welcome change to my daily look. Best of all? Instead of spending an exorbitant amount of money to add a little kick to your life, the Success SPL 33 cost only $99 at KateReese.com, including the lenses (which is important for someone like me who needs those extra strong ones), anti-reflective coating, free shipping and more.
