i got some brand new specs! the very lovely folks at 1800specs offered me a pair of new eyeglasses in return for a sponsored review, and well, i was in serious need of some updated glasses, so i said, “why not?”. y’all know i don’t do a lot whole lot of sponsored posts around here, but this seemed like a no brainer. plus, i freakin’ love these glasses. they bring out my inner nerd, and y’all probably know i love a good pair of nerd glasses.

if you weren’t aware, when you get a prescription for glasses from your optometrist, it’s yours to keep, and you have the right to pick out glasses from anywhere you choose, including 1800specs. in fact it’s pretty easy – i just typed in the prescription online, and the glasses arrived via mail a couple of weeks later. The average pair of glasses in the US sells for $150, and of course many of us pay several times that — glasses have a pretty serious markup. It’s kinda nutty, and there’s no reason glasses can’t be made available for as little as $20 a pair — and 1800specs has loads to choose from — and not knockoffs, these are the same glasses you can get elsewhere. my glasses are called the roxy, and it really did kind of surprise me how much i love ’em.

and, the very talented los angeles-based photographer kimberly genevieve was coming by to snap some pics of me this weekend for her portrait/lifestyle portfolio, so it was the perfect opportunity to share with you what the new 1800specs look like!

  1. Those look great, Victoria! I love the photos of you too. Gorgeous. It would be fun to have several different pairs of funky glasses to suit different styles and moods. :)

  2. How cute are you? : )

    And, thanks for the tip. I am always torn between going to the optometrist and getting one-on-one adjustments and changes as needed, (for, as the contact commercial says, “my special eyes!”) and traveling to a bigger town or going online to get a good deal.

  3. I agree with Anna, you look lovely. The new glasses suit you perfectly. Don’t we all have an inner nerd? I will have to take a look at the website.
