My New Retro Look

I’m so excited for my new look this year. I’ve worn glasses ever since middle school and although I prefer contacts, wearing glasses has grown on me. Especially since some of the old vintage style “Buddy Holly” and cat-eye glasses have been bursting back on the scene, the retro look has become more of part of my style.

I normally go into the eye doctor to get my exam and prescription. There were times when I purchased at my doctor’s office but I’ve always loved the convenience and variety online ordering can bring.

I’ve purchased from www.coastal.com on several occasions and I’ve always been happy with the glasses that I bought. All you have to do is enter your exam prescription numbers and you can order prescription eyeglasses or contacts through the website. The glasses are durable, come in variety of styles and the prices are convenient for everyone.

This time I wanted to try some new looks and I’m not disappointed. I definitely wanted to choose some styles that were retro and sleek and I found 3 designer pair that I fell in love with.

Package Included:

Eyeglass Kit W/ Eyeglass Cases:

Kam Dhillon 3079 Katerina Oleander

Joseph Marc 4116 Orchid Fade

coastalglasses-7

Kam Dhillon 3041 Purple

coastalglasses-21

What helped me choose my designer frames, was the option to upload my photo to see how the glasses would look on me. I love this option because you can (virtually) try on your glasses using the “Try On View” feature.

First Impression: I have not had the chance to use this product yet, and I’m hoping I don’t have too. It will definitely come in handy the next time my husband goes biking riding on his motorcycle. He suffered from severe sunburn the last time he went and we definitely needed a product like this on hand.
