East Coast(al) Winds + Plaid

Monday, October 6, 2014

Amelia and I always make jokes about how we've worn glasses since elementary school and were made fun of for it and now, people wear FAKE glasses... oh, how the tables have turned.  Contacts aren't an option for me due to some pretty "unique" eye issues, so glasses have always been my only option.  Glasses were always so expensive when I was growing up, that I never owned more than one pair at a time and I usually got a new pair every year-or-so.  As I've gotten older though, I've realized I can utilize them to add a little something extra to my outfits and just have fun with them, why not!

After my wedding I came home to an amazing gift -- my Style Ambassador package from Coastal.  Also, it was a REALLY windy day in Nashville, I felt like a weather-lady.

 Outfit Details
 Dolce & Gabbana Glasses c/o Coastal.com
 Bardot Top  |  Boohoo 
Plaid Full Skirt  |  eShakti
(comment if you want a referral code for $35 off)
Persia Heels c/o Miss L Fire
Pie Plugs |  Omerica Organic
(use rep code junebugs for 20% off)
Leg Brooch  |  Yukittenme


I debated between this pair of glasses and another, before finally settling on this pair with a little help from my mom, Amelia and our lovely friend, Jess.  With the exception of a pair of powder blue vintage cateye glasses (which I have yet to get retrofit), I've never owned a pair of colored glasses before  and I was a little apprehensive of choosing a red pair because of my red hair and my propensity for red lipstick, but I absolutely LOVE them.  The color and shape are absolutely beautiful and owning a Dolce and Gabbana item is a dream come true.


I am so pleased with my choice and I love that all you have to do with Coastal is give them your prescription and then your glasses arrive on your front door with the lenses already in them and you can just start wearing them!  Coastal offers $49 glasses (which includes free shipping and your lenses which is pretty awesome), so I think I'll be purchasing myself a pair in the near future.

Also, as a Style Ambassador, I now have 25% off promo codes to give out! Let the discounts begin! Each code is "unique" so comment below if you'd like one and I'll get one to you ASAP.

Are you a glasses wear-er? Where are your favorites from?

  3. Oh man, I love these glasses on you. I'm obsessed with ordering them online (though it's sorta risky). I've never ordered from Coastal before though... would love to have a promo code and see if there's anything I'd want :) Thanks, lady!!

    After looking for a place to put in prescriptions in some vintage frames I have kind of given up and now seeing all their cute cat eye glasses on Coastal I think I will definitely be using them. I'd love a 25% off code!
    Thanks!

  5. The shape as well as the color suit you very well and I love that they are a bit larger than your usual ones, 'cause I can see your pretty eyes even better! Great choice! You are adorable as always and.... congratulations newly wed Peach! (wish I could hug you in person!) Take care XOXO

  6. Your perfect fall outfit has me wishing it wasn't 100 degrees in southern California. No really, it was 100 degrees yesterday! I have needed new glasses for over a year now and I'm thinking ordering them online would be way to go, I'd love a promo code please and thank you! P.S. Been reading the blog for awhile now and absolutely love it, thank you for so much inspiration!

  7. I am too and the only pair I've EVER had to return was the Ray Ban Cateye glasses, Katie looks awesome in them and I just look like shit. haha. Anywho, I would LOVE to see what you choose if you end up with anything. Here's a code "SA1TZDX"

    ReplyDelete
  8. I know red hair, red lipstick, red glasses. haha

  9. You know, they make you sign a waiver (and this is totally scary, I know) but Walmart will put them in for you! I've done it 3 times now and have had REALLY good luck.



    You'll have to let me know which ones you choose if you get a pair! Use code "SAZFYCH"

    ReplyDelete
  10. Aww thank you so much, Alicia!


    And I didn't realize it either until recently! But I started looking at them and as long as it says it's a "full" skirt you can add some length and BOOM, pettticoat-able. haha


    Well that's awesome! I'm happy to hear they hold up I have an older pair from them as well that have been just fine. I really love a pair of Derek Cardigan tortoise cateyes they have - they're not metal like some of the vintage cateyes but they have a very traditional shape. : )

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well thank you so much, I love that they're a bit large as well! : ) And I can't wait to get my wedding photos back so I can share them! xoxo

  12. OH WOW, that is REALLY hot for October, you have my sympathy haha. It fluctuates a lot here in the south so, while it's 70s + chilly this week, we might be seeing that sort of weather again too - who knows.

    Also, it never hurts to try, especially because most online glasses companies have really good return policies! Here's a code: "SA43KFD"

    And thank you so much! I always love hearing people are enjoying what we do because we love sharing our fun + finds with our readers.

  13. That skirt is seriously the cutest! Who doesn't love plaid. If there is a coupon code I would love to have it. I have been ogling the website for a long time, but have never taken the leap to purchase.

  14. Thank you, Jaclyn! I LOVE a good plaid! If you're talking about eShakti, just comment your email and I'll send you a code for $35 off + a free customization. <3

    ReplyDelete
  15. My glasses are getting on in years, and I really need a new pair. I'd love to take advantage of the coupon code. Your new frames look really cute on you, I hope they have something that I like as much!

  20. You're such a style inspiration and an absolute sweetheart! Congratulations on your marriage ,I hope you two have a long and happy life together.As a girl on the shorter side (4 ft 9 to be exact),it's refreshing to see someone with my stature proving that you can dress in a retro style. You make everything look flawless and have motivated me to truly take the leap! I love reading your posts and seeing all your pictures.Never stop blogging please I look forward to all your posts. If you could be a dear and offer me a promo code i'd be very thrilled. xx Minnie

  21. I love glasses. I just got a drastically new prescription so I had to let go of my five old pairs. RIP! I loved them. Since then I am slowly trying to up my collection. The two pairs I have currently are from Firmoo..and I actually bought a third crazier pair from them yesterday. I am an affiliate for them, but evenso I think they are a pretty easy to work with company and they offer a variety of styles for really cheap. That being said, I have tried just about every site and am open to trying anything. I did have a really cute pink cat eye pair from coastal that I absolutely loved and have been thinking on reordering them in my new RX, but I don't know if I should branch out more and not fall into the old frame rut.

  22. I know how that is, my last pair of black vintage cateyes were getting a little old (ha.. ok they were already old) but I dropped them one day and the bakelite broke.. and so did my heart. But thank you, I hope you find a pair you LOVE! Here's a code "SASERQJ"

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love my vintage pairs! I just love having a few I change circulate between for fun.


    And thank you, it's so comfy!

  24. It's such a fun website - a glasses wearers dream! And thank you! <3

  25. I was rocking glue and tape for a while - it happens to the best of us! haha. I hope you find something new that you love! Here's a code "SAY5G2Y"

  26. Well thank you so much x 2! I've already known Collin for 10 years so I can't wait to see what the next 10 bring. <3

    And seeing other short girls rock retro styles is always SO nice. Tea length items weren't necessarily MADE for women our height but I say, wear what you want. : ) I'm so flattered and happy to hear you say all these things, wonderful compliments like this are the whole reason we decided to blog.

    What's your email, darlin'? I'll send over the code!

    ReplyDelete
  27. UGH I had to do the exact same thing.. I was seriously the crazy lady carrying 4 pairs of glasses into Walmart to get lenses put in all at once... I bet they hate me there.


    I've never heard of them before - I'll have to check them out! I always tend to gravitate towards cat eyes so I know what you mean... I justify it by saying some are cattier than others... and they're different colors. haha. If you love them - why not?!

    ReplyDelete
  28. OMG you are just thee cutest! I also have worn glasses my whole life. I've been hesitant to try coastal.com but I may have to check them out now! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  29. Well thank you! I hope you have good luck with them! If you want 25% off use "SA1719S" when you check out. <3

  30. Oooh I love your glasses! The red looks amazing on you :D I used to wear purple glasses when my eyes went bad. I don't think I ever owned any normal color ones until last year haha

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would absolutely love to have a coastal referral. I'm super interested in starting to have a more vintage wardrobe and the glasses are the perfect place to start!

  34. Thank you so much, lady! I really love the red, and purple sounds like so much fun! I want like a frosted gold pair or a baby pink pair, normal colored glasses are overrated ; )

    ReplyDelete
  35. These glasses look amazing on you! D&G can certainly make a gal feel special! I'd love to get a referral code - my cart is already filled with beautiful specs!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love cat eye glasses! I recently got these that I adore! The details are amazing and they are black and orange. My mom hates them! I also got new lenses in my old cat eye ones because I loved them so much. I'm waiting for some new kate spade ones I got and hoping they look right and I can finally have a black pair. Orange and purple don't go with everything!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I used to collect vintage frames and wear them even though I didn't need glasses! Everyone in my family wears glasses but me, and I felt left out. Finally, I got old enough and my eyes started to go - but I wasn't sad because I could finally use my frames! I also buy frames from allyn scura - check them out at allynscura.com. They are all vintage and you can take them to Walmart or your eye doctor or whatever and they will put the lenses in. I've had at least ten pairs done that way and I love them all. I can totally see you in the Imperial Laura style, and I have the Tirza's in red. Red glasses rock!

    Its thanks to you that I truly decided to take the leap,all the other bloggers I've seen have all been much taller than me & finding you was like a breath of fresh air! You've shown me that dressing for our size doesn't mean we can't dress in a way that makes us happy! Thank you for inspiring me & motivating me to embrace my small stature<3 I couldn't agree more,some of my favorite pieces are tea length + they compliment me nicely. Oh you're absolutely welcome dear, you both are very inspirational & talented ladies whom I have a deep admiration for.
    My email is vanillascentednostalgia@yahoo.com . I hope you have a marvelous day. Thank you so much xx

  75. I would love a code for the skirt: andrea.petersen@doane.edu
    I'm so used to new glasses & lenses being hundreds of dollars at the eye doctor, so I only got a new pair every five years or so. The prices at Coastal are so awesome I might have to celebrate, with new glasses! :)

  78. Skirt email sent!
    And I know exactly what you mean about the expensive glasses, only in the last few years have I been able to embrace the novelty of having lenses put in my extra pairs glasses just for the fun of it and not out of necessity.
