Do you ever have those moments where you wish you could alter your appearance and go incognito for a bit? I know I have, and I
am sure hope I’m not the only one. Wigs are an option (fun fact: I’ve actually tried clip-on bangs), but I’ve found that those can be such a hassle. Instead, I’ve come across a better alternative: glasses! They aren’t as effective as wigs (or black-magic makeup), but glasses have this amazing way of making sure you’re not immediately recognizable to those who know your routines. I have perfect eyesight, so you’ll never see me wearing any eyewear besides my sunglasses, and it’s because no one is used to seeing me in glasses that make this a cool albeit temporary disguise for me. Of course, if you wear glasses on a normal basis, you’ll probably have to stick with wigs if you want to go incognito for a day…
I had a fun time trying this out with Firmoo, a global optical online store that offers a multitude of high-quality yet fashionable prescription frames for reasonable prices. Even if you have 20/20 vision, you can still choose your favorite frames and opt for non-prescription lens. By providing detailed specifications on the frames (lens width, lens height, temple length, bridge distance, etc.), and offering useful but optional add-on features, such as tint, photochromic, polarized technology, Firmoo ensures you’re given sufficient knowledge to make a wise purchase without physically having to try on the glasses first. There’s also a super helpful tool – the Virtual Try-On System – that allows you to get a good idea of how the frames sit on the face by using the model provided, or by uploading your own photo. I confess I spent a good chunk of one afternoon playing with this feature. But all fun aside, it really makes shopping for glasses online so much easier! And when you receive your frames in the mail, you will notice that they come nicely packaged with a cute hard case (mine has a world map design that aptly reflects my wanderlust) in addition to a soft case, microfiber lens cloth, and – to my delight – a screwdriver! As if that wasn’t enough, I was thoroughly pleased with the customer service. As cheesy as it sounds, they really do care, and they strive to make your browsing/buying experience as pleasant as possible, even if you’re a complete newbie to glasses.
For a limited time during this holiday season, Firmoo is offering a BOGO deal on all frames (designer frames excluded). First time customers can also participate in the First Pair Free Program. Try it out and play with all the features that Firmoo provides! You just might find your next favorite pair of glasses.
