What I Wore: Hat (Target), Shirt (Modbod), Necklace (Stiched and Adorned), Snitch Pendant (Etsy; gift), Blazer (H&M), Belt (Vanity), Skirt (GAP; old), Boots, Tights and Socks (Old), glasses (Firmoo)


Firmoo seems to be the hot topic of the moment, and why not? Firmoo is an online eyeglasses company.They provide a large and varied selection of glasses frames that can include prescription lenses at inexpensive prices. In fact, the first pair you buy is free! And by free, I mean- free. Not just the frames, but the prescription lenses too. As anyone who needs glasses to see correctly can tell you that is a big deal.

But let's back up a minute here, so you can get the whole story. The company Firmoo approached me a few weeks ago, asking for a review of their goods. In the spirit of full disclosure, they gave me a free pair of glasses....which, to be fair, they do for all new costumers too.

Most people seem to have a great experience with Firmoo. They have an easy to navigate website where you are usually able to upload a photo of yourself in order to virtually try on frame styles. Sadly, I never was able to successfully upload a photo, so my choice of frames was made a bit blindly (no pun intended). I used the company's advise page about choose the correct sizing for frames to make my choice. I wanted a deliberately large pair of glasses, which the ones I chose are. In fact, they might be a bit bigger than I really expected, but they still fit on my head fine, thanks to their sizing information.  My only other complaint is that, at this time, Firmoo does not seem to offer the option of getting thinner lenses. My eyesight is rather ridiculously bad, and so, the lenses are very thick. So thick , in fact, my peripheral vision gets distorted by the lens. The lens make it so when I move my head the edges of my vision expand and contract. However, I suspect this is more a fault of the lens prescription, rather than the glasses themselves. Hopefully, the option of upgrading to thinner lenses will be added soon!

As I said earlier, trying a first pair is free, so you literally have nothing to lose. Returning customers will find Firmoo frames are still very cheap, with most prices under a hundred dollars. Several frames are not available for free as they are designer frames, but are still usually priced under a hundred dollars. They don't have frames for children yet, but they do ship internationally. Firmoo's goods are made in China. My own pair shipped quickly and came with a glasses case, cleaning cloth and a cloth bag as well.

This was my first experience buying glasses online, so it was interesting, in that sense. I don't see myself getting rid of my first pair of glasses, but I find the company an inexpensive way to add some variety to your glasses-wearing experience.

Have you tried out Firmoo? Was it a hit for you? Feel free to link to your own reviews, or photos of your Firmoo glasses!

  1. I've heard lots of great things about Firmoo, and I am a bit envious of girls who wear glasses because I think they're adorable!

    Love this outfit - very vintage-inspired and equestrian :)

    1. Megan- if you're interested, Firmoo also will sell glasses with "clear" lenses, that is ones with no prescription.

      Thanks, for the compliment btw!

  2. Personally I had a great experience with them, but I don't have prescription lenses.

    I love your jacket.

    1. I'm so glad you had a good experience with them!
      I did not have a bad one by any means; they are a good company. It can just be tricky buying prescription glasses, I think.

      Thanks for the compliment too, btw :)

  3. They look pretty cute at least! I don't need glasses and am lucky not to I suppose, but I always envy girls who wear them. I mean, I can wear them with fake lenses, but I feel a bit self conscious doing that! I love your mustard skirt in this post and the AWESOME location for the photos

    1. The trolley was pretty lucky- we just saw it on the way to another site.

      I guess I can see why fake lenses might make one feel self-conscious, but you'd look cute in them, I think.

  5. Your new specs are so adorable Kristian! I love the slightly bigger fit, that's what I went for too (but mine are bright yellow, so maybe I just went for full on obnoxious!) I love the backdrop for these and your cute skirt as well, very festive!
    Also, THANK YOU for the sweet birthday card in the mail! It was such a nice surprise to come home to after work yesterday and such a thoughtful gesture! I sure have loved getting to know you gals better too!
    Have a terrific day!

  12. Wow I am I impressed with this whole adorable. Outfit, the blazer and boots are so perfect with that girly skirt and wow, teh glasses look awesome n you! Can't believe you got without trying on, virtually at least. I really liked that you did such an honest review as well admitting a few drawbacks, it seems we dont see that as much as we her in real life.
