Thank you Kindly

I don’t typically buy things from sponsored links on blogs.  I very rarely use Amazon affiliate links, I’ve never done Stitch Fix, and I don’t enter contests.  And, I don’t read Raechel Myers’ blog.  So to be honest, I’m not quite sure how I found her sponsored post on David Kind glasses, why I clicked through to the site, why I signed up for a styling. But I did.

I’ve asked for money for new glasses probably 3 out of the last 4 Christmases, so updating my old (not awful but definitely not cute) glasses has been on my mind for quite some time.  I tried on Warby Parkers a couple of years ago but none of the frames fit my face that well, and I sent them all back.

The biggest difference with David Kind is that they recommend frames for you, rather than picking them out yourself.  I noted that a) I’m super pale, b) I seem to have a narrow face and c) I wanted something age appropriate, not overly hipster.  I filled out the rest of the survey and (not very) patiently waited a few days.

They arrived in a nifty cork box with a handwritten note from my stylist.  She noted a particular pair that she recommended for my face shape, coloring, etc., but I wanted to try them on anonymously first without looking at the frame names.  glasses 1.jpgglasses 2.jpg

So the trying-on process went.  #6 (clearly) was the only pair that I flat out didn’t like.  The others were all contenders.  Chad and Ranae weighed in, and I made my decision.  My years-gone-by is offsetting the price of them (or so I’m telling myself) and I excitedly placed my order.  In February.  Definitely before No Money March started.


The Laurel in Rust turned out to be my stylist’s recommendation for me, and I agreed!  Love love love my new specs.  Thanks, David Kind.  IMG_2540(yes, I think they look a little crooked, too.  getting adjusted this week.)

No, this isn’t a sponsored post, I’m just super excited about my new glasses.

    Well this is amazing! I have been asking (begging) for new frames for awhile, my prescription isn’t up-to-date and I’m already legally blind, it’s just an awful combo. I’ve done Birchbox/StitchFix, but this looks like the one I actually really need to try!

    BTW, your frames are really cute!
