Firmoo-La-La: A review of my new glasses!7:44:00 PM
I've worn glasses since I was seven years old. At this point, I think I can say I know what I'm doing. Believe me when I say that my new glasses from Firmoo are magnificent!
I've been absolutely dying for a pair of round, black, plastic glasses to wear artistically near some coffee and maybe a typewriter. So when Firmoo offered me a pair to review, I was utterly stoked! I've been wearing them nonstop since that day--and can I just say that they came really fast? My parents always ordered my glasses directly from the eye doctor when I was a kid, and I feel like they always took over two weeks to arrive. My Firmoo glasses shipped from China (you know, according to the package) and I got them only eight days later. I hope that's typical because I'm very impatient and barely had any time to get antsy! A+!
The extras they sent along are super. Take, for instance, this key ring screwdriver!
Ordering glasses online can be a little impersonal, and of course nothing can top an in-store adjustment. This is the next best thing. And since the website was pretty clear about the dimensions of the frames, I didn't have to worry anyway! They fit just as I'd hoped they would.
I couldn't be more in love with the case! It matches a purse I have. I keep the very, very nice cleaning cloth inside. It's shockingly effective.
I've been wearing them nonstop since I got them. Obviously I didn't actually pay for these, but I so would have. The frames and basic lenses together only would have come to about $40! They're still on sale, so click here if you want them! That's not a bargain I can argue with. I'm used to well-fitting glasses being much, much more than that. Most of Firmoo's frames are in the $35-$50 range, though there's a few pairs right now under $20. Warby Parker will run ya $100+, mind you. Get that crusty hipster look at less than half the price. (I mean that lovingly.)
So, the big question: Would I get Firmoo glasses again?? The big answer: Yes!!! I'm in love. They look great, were no hassle at all to buy, and are really much nicer quality than I expected. Two enthusiastic thumbs up! I might go ahead and get another pair soon. I'm that sort of person.
Firmoo sent me these rad specs for free, but the opinions expressed here are 100% my own. Those of us with bad eyesight know the struggle. If you're looking for new glasses on a budget, check out Firmoo.
