  1. Can’t Stop Wearing My New Specs (and Reader Promo Code for You!)

    September 27, 2012 by SavvyInTheCity


    A few weeks ago I was contacted by with the offer to review their glasses*. The online perscription glasses vendor asked me not just to review the glasses themselves, but the whole ordering/customer service process.

    I’ve been committed to only reviewing products that fit with my blogs content — so considering that I’ve been a regular unpaid reviewer of Zenni Optical’s eyeglasses, it seemed appropriate that I accept this mission.

    How it works: GlassesUSA allows you to shop by many attributes including frame type, style, material or shape. Unlike Zenni, GlassesUSA offers a variety of name brand/designer frames. I definitely spent some time oggling over the creations of Tom Ford, GUESS, Lacoste and Kenneth Cole. (For perspective, Kenneth Coles on ranged from $99 to $140, which is a good chunk less than one would pay at, say, your neighborhood brick and mortar shop (e.g., Lens Crafters). These really reasonable prices include basic lenses.

    The site also has a huge number of non-branded, trendy and classic glasses — meaning there’s a really solid number of choices. 


  2. Faux Leather Leggings

    Snatched up a pair of faux leather leggings at Forever 21 today ($20). I keep seeing leather leggings in magazines and on fashion blogs.

    The jury's still out.

    What do you think I should do… love 'em or leave 'em?

    (Blazer is Tahari – thrifted, tee is from Target. Gianni Bini pumps were a 30%-ish off eBay find.)
