My new glasses!

If you remember I was on the hunt for my first computer glasses: here and here. There were a couple of frames I liked but they did not come in colors which suited me...and meanwhile I continued to get tired eyes from work.
A couple of weeks ago I was shopping at Costco and decided to check their selection of glasses - and these frames jumped right at me. The color was good - deep cranberry red going into black on the sides. Hardware on temples was minimal and I though the shape was good for me overall. The price was good too so I decided to get them so at least I can start giving my eyes a break and later i can hunt for a better pair at leisure.
What do you think - I hope it is not a total disaster (and even if it is I will be wearing them behind the computer only , not walking in them everywhere so hopefully the damage is not too big.
Wore them today at work for the first time - it does feel weird... :-)

    I love it for you too. Lovely color and shape on you :). Yay for being practical :)

  • JAileen replied 6 years ago

    They look great! I also like your shirt.

    60 Minutes did a segment on glasses, Luxottica specifically. Costco is apparently one of the few places selling glasses not owned by Luxottica.

    Great find!  I love your shirt also--so cute!

  • Gracie replied 6 years ago

    The color and shape are very flattering, I like the detail of the little loop on the sides. But the bug shirt!!! I hadn't seen it – I really like it. Wearing my computer glasses to see the little bugs over here :)

    Great choice, Sveta!

  • Inge replied 6 years ago

    I think they look great, Sveta.

  • lyn67 replied 6 years ago

    Wow, at Cosco??? They look more than great! Color and shape wise you are sorted! But still, advising you for correct prescription glasses, if possible anytime, asap. Great shirt and love your cut, too!:-)

  • kerry replied 6 years ago

    Costco?! Would never had known! Great specs on you.

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Thank you ladies! I am glad my first glasses passed YLF filter! :-)
    Lyn, these are real prescription glasses, not cheap readers off the shelf. Costco has a full function optical department.
    For those who asked: bug shirt is last year BF shirt from Gap.

  • jackiec replied 6 years ago

    Costco!? Love!!! I am waaaay overdue for new glasses. Might need to check out Costco! I'm a super cheapie for that type of thing - my last ones were free from Clearly Contacts online. Now that's a risky way to purchase glasses ;)

  • Windchime replied 6 years ago

    Your glasses look great! They fit right in with your classy style without calling attention to themselves, if you know what I mean. It took me a while to get used to wearing reading glasses, too. Now my problem is remembering where I laid them down. :)

  • pastrygirl replied 6 years ago

    Wow, I think they look fantastic!!!

  • Susie replied 6 years ago

    I think the shape and the color are sooooo flattering on you! What a great find.

  • pil replied 6 years ago

    Way to trust your instincts - looking great!
    I seem to recall Costco receiving good reviews for glasses in Consumers Report magazine.

  • gryffin replied 6 years ago

    Wow, Sveta - they are a perfect fit, shape, color.  totally awesome on you!!  Fantastic job on finding the perfect frame.  Hope they take the eye strain away!!

  • Eliza replied 6 years ago

    Like them and also have found the cranberry color in frames flattering. Great choice!

  • Diana replied 6 years ago

    They look great!  The cranberry color is excellent on you.

    I don't have a costco membership currently but I used to buy glasses there.  They had a great selection and really good prices.

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    Great choice. They look very nice on you!

  • Elizabeth P replied 6 years ago

    Oh, love them Sveta!  Way to go.  Doesn't Costco rock?

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am so glad it was not a failure of settling because I was tired of the search!
    Using them for the second day and it still feels weird...:-)

  • Echo replied 6 years ago

    They look GREAT on you! And you give me hope, as I need to make an appointment both for myself and DS14 this summer because I think he might need glasses and I might need reading glasses.

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Love the warm color and the bold shape with softened corners.  They look great on you!
