tuesday’s girl: lookmatic eyeglass giveaway.
by victoria comment


• this giveaway post is in partnership with lookmatic.

if you’ve been following the blog here for a while, you probably know by now that i’m a big fan of eyeglasses. that quote from writer dorothy parker, “men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses”? i don’t believe it for one minute. i think glasses look charming on women, and men as well — nerd style is right up my alley. so, i was pretty stoked when lookmatic asked me if i’d like to do a reader giveaway for a pair of their prescription eyeglasses or sunglasses.

For some (like me), prescription eyewear is a necessity…But eyewear is also a style statement. lookmatic enables you to fulfill your needs and afford to do so as often as you’d like. lookmatic’s glasses are inexpensive — so you can afford to get a pair to match a few looks and build your own collection — for all your moods. they have a virtual try-on, too.

* giveaway is now closed. winner will be announced tomorrow. thanks!

to win a pair of men or women’s lookmatic prescription eyeglasses or sunglasses, simply:

• visit the lookmatic collection and pick out your favorite pair.

• comment here on the blog sharing your favorite pair by tuesday, october 23rd at midnight PST.

• as always, please be sure to leave a way to contact you via twitter, facebook, your blog or email.

• we’ll announce a random winner just after the 24th on my twitter account, so be sure to follow along.

there’s loads of lookmatic styles to choose from — even the Uncle Leonard — Eyewear designed by Jason Schwartzman, a true eyeglass aficionado; the kitty horn sunglasses and the marlowe tortoise shell. take your pick from any pair!

  1. I love these ones! (I don’t have a twitter, can you email me when I hopefully win!)

  2. I would like a pair of black Slims. My baby got a hold of my glasses and scratched them to the point that I can’t see through them anymore :l Great giveaway! Thank you

  3. wow! these are so cool. i adore them. if i had to pick a favorite, it’d be the marilyn. i am just starting to see a need for prescription sunglasses! the sun in the midwest mornings is blinding me on my commute to work! those babies would come in handy!

  4. Seriously…I just spent twenty minutes “trying on” glasses. I haven’t even finished my coffee. :) I like the Holly in Red, Bel Air in Citrus, and the Marilyn in Red. I would have to choose between those three if I won this cool giveaway.

  5. those tortoise parkers are calling my name! what a great selection of super cute and affordable glasses!

  6. Such a difficult thing to select one as a favorite, I have narrowed it down to two! The Parker and the Marilyn in green!

    I don’t have a twitter account:(

  7. I´d have to go with the Tippi prescription glasses! I have advanced myopia, so I really need glasses, the whole collection is very stylish ;)

  8. Love the Slims & Apprentice in Tortoise! Thanks for fixing up your four-eyed friends :) This is a great site!

  9. I’m a serious (sun)glasses junky and have been looking for new frames for a while now. The Tippi in tortoise /purple are exactly what I have been looking for! I never win anything, but I am keeping fingers and toes crossed for this one!

  10. The Tippi Tortoise with the turq blue inside the frame. Wowie. I wear prescription (progressive)- both near and far sighted and my glasses live on my face. Those would rock as a second pr.

  11. Yay, giveaway! Fave pair is the tortoiseshell Payton. Reminds me of the pair worn by the woman in Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded with me with Science” vid.

  12. I love the black Reeves for prescription sunglasses. I’ve been dying for prescription sunglasses. Right now if I want to wear my current sunglasses, I have to put in my contacts :(

  13. how wonderful! i have been on the hunt for a new pair of (affordable + stylish) prescription glasses. i am loving: Tippi and Evelyn in both black tortoise and tortoise/light blue; Apprentice in brown wood/gold; and Darcy. i would be happy to court any one of them!

    thank you so much for the lovely giveaway.


  14. I’m enamored with the Tippi in Tortoise with purple lining or the Marilyn in green – perfect vintage vibes. I’d love to win a pair since I’m on the market for new glasses!

  15. Ooooooh! I love the Davenport frames in the tortoise/gray. What a great site, I had never heard of them before.

  16. In the nine years that I’ve needed them, I’ve always worn glasses over contacts because I love the styles so much. I’d really like a pair of the Marlowes!

  17. I’m a librarian so it’s only right that I should wear the Tippi to increase my sexy shushing abilities. :)

  18. I love glasses too! I totally think men find women wearing glasses sexy. I would want a pair of Hobbs, clear/tortoise, 1.0 readers. Mama needs a new pair of glasses!

  19. Go Librarians! Me too – part-time…but I’m torn between the Kitty (wow factor) and the Marilyn. Think I have to go with the Marilyn in green for everyday wear. Thanks sfgirl!

  20. Jesse? FDR? Ricky?! It’s so tough, they’re all so cute. These would be so fitting since my favorite pair just broke! Sure I can see with my “back up pair”, but no glass wearer looks forward to the dreaded back up pair.

  21. Hard to decide between the Tipi & the Evelyn. But all are so rad!

    I’m not on Twitter, so hopefully you’ll email me when I win!!! :))

  22. I’m in love with glasses. First I hated them, but now they grow on me. I started wearing them when I was 6 :) If I can choose, I will gladly take the tortoise/clear REEVE glasses. They look so vintage with a hint of modern! Like Them!
    Hope to win ;)

  23. Ohhhh boy, what a great giveaway. The Abby sunglasses are really calling out to me – classic and basic, with just enough flair!

  24. I loveeee the Hobbs frames – classy yet quirky. Amazing blog, Instagram, and Pinterest page – follower for life! ;) Have a wonderful week – thanks for hosting such a fab giveaway!

  25. The tippi with the blue look close to cateye glasses which are my favorite. Praying to win! I havent been able to afford beautiful glasses such as these in years!

  26. The Kitty sunglasses are calling my name… but the optical BelAir pair are fancy, too. Can’t decide!


  27. I’ve been wanting to try a new frame. I’d like a chance at the women’s Darcy in Tortoiseshell & Blue.

  28. My vote has to be for “patti goes to paris”, in pink.
    Thanks for posting this—I’m glad to find out about this shop, as well!
    Thank you! xo

  29. Good gawd it takes me so long to find the right pair… but I just fell IN LOVE with the prescription Uncle Leonard in clear!! What a great style! I’d rock those so hard. Thanks for the opportunity to win via your blog, I’m a huge fan!

  30. I’ve caved to the masses and have fallen for the Jesse in black! Though the thickness of my prescription takes the trendy/cool factor down a bit…

  31. I agree, women in glasses are way charming and cute!
    I was just on their website adoring the Uncleonard. I will be giving birth to my second baby in December and I couldn’t think of a better accessory than new glasses as we welcome our new baby girl!

  32. I am in desperate need of new prescription sunglasses so I would love to win this! My favorites are Tippi and Slims :)

  33. I love wearing glasses! I always feel like I’m a little bit more shielded from the world when I do! :)

    I’ve never had prescription sunglasses, so that would be an amazing luxury. I’m really digging the Abby!

  34. So many to love! I can’t decide between the Bel Air or the Apprentice glasses, and I love the Marlowe sunglasses!

  35. Wow, awesome giveaway! I’m really digging the vintage vibe of the Marilyn in red.

    Thank you! @TieDye64

  36. I love them all but I think Ricky in Red would be so fresh and fun for fall! Thanks for telling us about this website!

  37. Who doesn’t love a classic? I chose Dane in Tortoise! Thank you so much for hosting this contest. Keep up the fabulous posts. :)

  38. As a girl who is only slightly (ok totally) obsessed with glasses I’m so excited to learn about Lookmatic!

    And could we talk about Kitty! I’m willing to give up my perscription Jackie O glasses for those beauties. Yowza!

  39. Wow! All of these glasses are just so great! I’ve been looking for a new pair of quirky teacher glasses! I absolutely adore the Davenport! Hobbs is a close second!

  40. Quite the selection.

    Partial to the Ricky’s myself, though can’t say that wouldn’t change at the drop of a hat.

  41. The Belair in citrus is my favorite (same style in clear is my second fave).

    Best giveaway ever!

    I’m @eightohtwo on Twitter

  42. Those are some very reasonably priced specs! Of course, since I’m saving up to move, a free pair of the bel air in ruby wouldn’t be too shabby.

  43. Oh dear, I was JUST looking last night at some prescription sunglasses on their site! I’m that person who wears her glasses with Target sunglasses over them while I drive. :)

    I personally love the Payton sunglasses. :)

  44. I love the Uncleleonard frames in Olive. Thanks for sharing the wealth/a new way to feed my eyewear addiction. Yeah!!!

  45. How ironic, I was looking at Pinterest last night at your “four eyes” board looking for inspiration.Well… I can’t wait to win a contest so I ordered the Tippi, but if I win (which I never do) I ‘ll order another pair as I loose glasses on a regular basis :0)
    P.S. I’m not on Twitter ;(

  46. Please please pick me! Absolutely love the Evelyn…gorgeous and I agree, girls with glasses are super mysterious and sexy!

  47. Hi my name is Julie and I’ve been a glasses addict for about 13 years (when I needed them for reading anything….)! I love the Holly, in red of course. Love your blog and love following your pins!!!

  48. Oh my gosh! What cute styles! I think I may want to enter this for my daughter. I think they would look just precious. I love how all the adorable styles come out after I had iLasik. But I am glad I did have the surgery. Maybe I can find a pair of sunglasses like these in the store. Thanks for sharing!

  49. THIS IS AN AMAZING GIVEAWAY!!! i was so hard to choose but i love Apprentice and payton :)!!!cross my fingers, THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT GIFT

  50. The black Slims are my favorite! A classic. I’d love to wear glasses more regularly and this chic pair would a perfect way to start!

  51. I love the Jesse frames! I simply adore them….I want them in every color, because well, that’s how great they are! Would love to win a pair! @nikitabandita

  52. I have several pairs of glasses from Lookmatic. Great site for inexpensive, stylish frames. I would get the Uncle Leonard or maybe the Shelby.

  53. Yay! I love Lookmatic for their styles and their costumer service. I already gave Jesse in black, I would want Morgan in black tortoise or Davenport in tortoise and gray combination.

  54. I don’t want them I NEED THEM….just had cataract surgery and could use the tortoise Tippi for some very hip reading glasses…..plz help me!!

  55. I bought a pair of Lookmatic glasses a month ago and they never arrived. They must be lost mid-atlantic because I live in Scotland. So perhaps fate would help me win as it lead me to your lovely blog. Thanks so much, if I was lucky enough to win I would love love love The Uncle Leonard designed by the very cool Jason.

  56. I love the pale pink Bel Air glasses! Pink is my favorite and I am blind as a bat so this would be amazing to win! <3

  57. This giveaway could not have arrived at a better time! Ricky Ricardo, my 7 month old French Bulldog has taken a liking to eyewear (2 pairs in a month!) and I’ve been searching for a cute new pair. I’m thinking about switching up the classic black frame to something in the brown/tortoise shell range, like the Dane frames. Crossing my fingers!

  58. I own a tiny, high-end optical shop. I “fix” online orders like this all the time. They’re rarely correct and there is no service so people come to me. People want the same deal as online but don’t realize that I don’t carry that made in China crap and won’t sell my good stuff for that price. The lowest price doesn’t always mean the bets deal. Buy the best, locally . Keep brick and mortar businesses open and in business. We provide knowledge, experience and service.

  59. I just got Tippi in TORTOISE/LIGHT BLUE and I LOVE THEM…I am constantly getting compliments from friends and strangers! They fit perfectly out of the box, too.

  60. I am in love with most of these glasses, Its so hard to pick. THey are all so beautiful.
    I think my favs Payton in Tortoise . They are classy , and funky .

  61. I need some prescription sunglasses, and I think Jones would probably fit my face best. Great giveaway!

  62. All of their frames are great, but my favorite would be the RX tinted tortoise Marlowe frames! I’m a lifelong glasses wearer and nerd, so I love the idea of RX sunnies and the fact that they have a literary name!

  63. WOW! FANTASTIC looking glasses! Hard to choose.
    Marilyn – black
    Hmmm hard for me to just choose pair…what I do know is I am need of eyeglasses!
    This giveaway couldn’t have come at a better time.

  64. I really do need a pair of new prescription glasses! I’m loving the SLIMS right now!! There are tons of cute frames on their site, though!! Awesome!!! @katejones365

  65. Whadya know, I picked out the Jesse pair from the sunglasses page in black/clear and then again in turquoise shell for regular without noticing until I went to post this comment! … Guess I know what I like! hah.

  66. Tippi in Tortiseshell/Blue for sure! Classic on the outside, with a playful modern twist on the inner that’s like your own little secret (& as a a bonus one of my favourite colours).

    The only dilemma now, new perscription frames, or sunglasses?

  67. I can’t stop LOVING the tortoise Parker. What a fabulous website…affordable and fashion friendly. Free shipping too! Thank oh four eyed gods z:D twitter handle @ontheCL

  68. the tipi frames look fab for those ‘why miss carruthers, without your glasses you’re…beautiful’ moments. would love a new pair of specs, mine are ages old. alas the photo i just took for the virtual try on makes me look ancient – 5 month old baby keeping me up all night. x

  69. The Kitty frames in horn I was drawn to immediately. They seem to be a more directional design and interesting materials used. The Marlowe in pink are cute too! I must say there a quite a few that inspire. Great price. Thanks for your blog. Enjoy reading it! Deborah from Melbourne, Australia

  70. Oh! Entirely too many perfect choices! I’m having a blast with the virtual try on feature (this from someone who abhors self portrait photos) and can not choose just one style until I absolutely must (and probably not even then, thankfully they’re so affordable!). I love the dark grey, the clear, the silvers, the pastel pinks…. Oh, just fabulous, all of them! Thanks for the chance to win!

  71. Oh, I’ve seen so many beautiful people popping up on the internet lately with Lookmatic glasses! As soon as I decide on which pair I want (maybe the Jesse in black?), I’m getting them, so winning your contest would be such an awesome bonus!

  72. After just seeing “The Birds”, I’m going to have to go with the “Tippi” sunglasses in black/purple, if I am the lucky winner.

  73. The Morgan. For sure. I’m super duper hardofseeing and need some fancy chunky ones! Would lovers these 💜

  74. I’m just smitten with the wood and gold apprentice! They are all so cute but I think these would bring out the green in my peepers.

  75. Like everyone has said, it’s so hard to choose, but I’d love a pair of the “Woody” glasses. It’s a fun and classic unisex option, and since my boyfriend and I wear the same prescription, we could share!

  76. Oh man. I need this.
    I should wear prescription glasses but don’t because the ones I bought over six years ago are so weirdly flashy frameless ones that feel really dated and I made the double mistake of picking weird frames and getting transition lenses. They tint at any sign of light and I look like a weird Diane Keaton wannabe. Needless to say, I need new, fresh lenses.

    My picks from Lookmatic would be Slims, Evelyn or Jesse

  77. Can’t miss with a classic: I love LUCY!

    After years of monovision contacts (yes, I only wear one!) I am feeling the tug to go back to glasses – like you I love the nerdy look and finally nerdy is IN :)

    I’m on twitter: http://www.twitter.com/sacitxn

  78. Ack! I’d not heard of lookmatic before, but they friggin’ ROCK! Lovely glasses. Right up my alley. I’d do the Reeve. Or the Hobbs. Or the Reeve. Or the Hobbs. I think the Reeve. Yeah. The Reeve.

  79. I love abazillion of the styles here, I like any of the two tones like the Jesse, I like the Maxine and the Apprentice (who doesn’t love that name?), and the Peyton are great as well!

  80. Well I already love my bright red glasses from lookmatic. They have become part of my signature style!! I have been eyeballing the blue Maxine’s. I think the blue clear color is just amazing!! I also love the kitty for sunglasses- too much fun! Thanks and fingers crossed I get to wear one of these soon.

  81. I’ve had my eye on the Ricky frames for the longest time. I can’t decide whether to go for the classic black or change it up with the red. Thanks for the chance! @fetusdumplings
