Going Coastal: Tortoiseshell & Buttercups

Thursday, October 9, 2014

As June said in her post Tuesday, I've worn glasses since I was two so essentially I've worn glasses as long as I can ever remember.  Unfortunately, my glasses growing up were not the best fashion accessory and more often than not they were hideous.  From pink bi-focals to big wire frames I wore so many different styles.  After a short stint in contacts I realized that they weren't for me (my allergies definitely did not agree with them), and I made it a mission to find cute glasses.  For the past few years I've been able to find cute glasses but that search is not always an easy one!

Luckily, I heard about Coastal.com when they were doing their "First Pair Free" promotion where your first pair of glasses were literally free aside from shipping.  Since then they've gotten rid of that program, but they still have great options and amazing deals!

I absolutely love the glasses that I chose.  I'm such a huge fan of tortoiseshell glasses especially on days where I wear lighter colors and these frames definitely complimented my vintage floral dress.  The gold accent on the side was just an added to the appeal of these glasses!  Not to mention it's also so convenient to have my glasses arrive with my prescription in them ready to wear!  Goodbye are the days of hideous glasses!  Go read more about my love affair with glasses and more at my Coastal.com Style Ambassador page here

  1. Hey! I have looked in to glasses from Coastal.com and am needing some new glasses soon! 😊 It would be cool to get 25% off!

    I have usually just gone to the eye doctors around town and bought my glasses but they either have not so cute ones or ones that are super expensive!

  2. Hi Melissa! I relate to that so much! I swear I would just settle for ugly glasses because I had no other choice!

    Your code for 25% off is "SA1N9PZ"! <3

  3. I've never seen you without specs, and you look so pretty both with & without! These glasses look great on you, and I think I might've been looking at these yesterday, haha. Sometimes it's hard to tell what they'll look like just from the "virtual try on" option, so I'm sometimes hesitant to order. I have a couple of frames from Rivet & Sway (which is no longer in business but their frames are carried by glasses.com, I think), and I loved that their program involved them sending up to 5 frames of your choosing to you to try on, and then you send them back and order the ones you want. It gave me more piece of mind. But both of you really did well with your frames from Coastal, so perhaps I'll have to bite the bullet :)

  6. They're basically attached to my face since I can't see. hah Oh my gosh I know, the virtual try on doesn't help me at all. It's always a gamble for me ordering glasses offline. I'm sure any glasses would look great on you, because you're the cutest ;)

  18. I have a vintage pair of artcraft frames I got at a flea market that I love. They are also my cheapest pair of gasses because I only really had to pay for the prescription. I love the way those fit your face though.
