nerdy glasses are cool

I’ve noticed something.  Large, dark, thick-framed glasses are everywhere.  People are going beyond Tina Fey and going bigger. Even those who don’t need vision correction are wearing non-prescription black or tortoise frames to keep up with the Justins.

I hopped on the bandwagon this summer when I decided to take a little break from my contact lenses, and I bought a pair of nerdy glasses. At first, I went to the eyeglasses place where I had my eye exam.  I was not about to shell out $200 for a pair of glasses, so I did some researching online.

I stumbled upon a website called Zenni Optical.  It was recommended by Clark Howard, so I knew it was legit.  They have pages and pages full of fashionable glasses for $6.95! I’m talking both the frames and lenses for less than $10. Just make sure you have your prescription handy, and always get the anti-reflective coating so everyone can still see your pretty peepers through your lenses. You can upload your picture to “try-on” the frames before you make your purchase.  I ended up getting three pairs: a black pair, a tortoise pair, and a pink pair, and I love them all!
