I was recently asked to review the Derek Cardigan eyeglasses over on Coastal.com (they have tons of designer eyeglasses). It was perfect timing, really, because I’d been dying to get a new pair of huge, Jenna-Lyons-in-Fast-Company, geek chic glasses. And the selection totally didn’t disappoint! I was so torn!!! I actually started thinking I might want a pair in oatmeal or mauve, but I opted to keep it …predictable! And Im so glad I did.
Okay, so re the ordering process—not going to lie, I was pretty nervous about ordering glasses online. How could I possibly know how they’d look on? But, luckily, Coastal.com actually had tons of different face type examples, so that helped a little. I tend to find myself in a particularly unique pinch when it comes to shopping for glasses, though. I have an awkwardly small head. Like… shop for kids glasses small. So I loved that they actually had a child among their face type examples! I just set it to that and let it ride! While I was going for huge anyway, the child-size face actually clued me in to when a pair would actually be way too big. It took some browsing but I think I found a great pair. Voila! What do you think?
As for the glasses, they’re perfect. They’re pretty light weight, they don’t slip and they feel sturdy; I’m not in constant fear that they’ll break. And even if I did break them, no biggie because they weren’t a fortune!! The whole Derek Cardigan line was pretty reasonably priced! Oh!! And let me also say that I was STUNNED with how fast these came. STUNNED. I think I ordered them on a Thursday and they were in my mailbox that Saturday. Seriously? For prescription lenses that’s insane!!
