Whoever said men don’t make passes at lasses wearing glasses stands corrected! I’ve just been introduced to the world of Specs Addicts from Australia and haven’t stopped lusting after the incredibly stylish and for spectacles and sun glasses! Ranging from the sexy, 50’s Mad Men style cat eye shapes to the ‘Super Nerd’ large, square glasses, they have it all… and that too in every imaginable color! I’ve loathed wearing my glasses- the boring, rimless, yawn inducing pair but was never drawn to wearing contact lenses either. Now, there’s a stylish, sexy and super fun way to embrace my inner geek and I’m loving the change.
I ordered my prescription sunglasses from the Specs Addict website (www.specsaddict.com ) even though I’m always a bit apprehensive about ordering things online because it’s difficult to gauge how clothes or accessories actually look on me- if the color and shape match mine and complement me.
With Specs Addict, what changed my mind was the fabulous virtual mirror which allowed me to virtually try on the glasses with the help of my webcam or an uploaded picture- that one feature actually clinched the deal for me- So simple and helpful!
The website said it would take 6 working days for my delivery but I was in for a nice surprise when I relieved it within just 2 days. The package came beautifully wrapped in a bow and a nice, robust box. But I was even happier after unwrapping it, to see my brown tinted wayfarer-inspired prescription sunglasses, exactly the way I wanted them!
At 600 AED and within 2 days time, this was easily one of my most stylish, economical buy of the year, and thanks to this fabulous experience, I can safely say I’m addicted to Specs Addict! Check them out on their website or Facebook page for your own pair.
Pssst…a little tip: Specs Addict are going beyond virtual into reality by welcoming the New Year in with the brand new ‘try-at-home’ service. The “no pressure” home trial scheme will eliminate the stress that glasses wearers can experience when choosing new frames in store, such as committing to a final purchase there and then. Just choose up to a total of five pairs from the tempting varieties – including sunglasses, tint and lens samples – and Specs Addictwill deliver them next working day to your home for FREE! Don’t fret about being an indecisive shopper because you can keep the glasses for a whole week to try out and get a second opinion from family and friends. Then simply send back the postage-paid envelope with your order and prescription. Your chosen brand new glasses will be delivered to your door in no time.
Also, you can snap up any specs between 1st – 31st January 2013 using the online code “New Year” and you’ll receive 15% off your purchase.
