Stylish prescription glasses on a budget. That’s the goal, ladies. Let’s chat maj sticker shock when buying glasses, shall we? You feel me? Been there? Multitasking: Choosing frames (to go with your prescription) + trying to monitor the budget. All seems to be going OK-ish… until you add on the prescription fees + the non-glare coat + the cost of the frames + the extras (so you can see at night) = Hello $500… which = goodbye #NSale <insert pouty face> Do NOT make a spectacle of yourself spending that much! <haha…see what I did there?>
Unless… <solution coming atcha….>
Order eyeglasses online. Glasses, sunglasses and prescription glasses. And prescription SUNGLASSES. Like – they have it all. That are CUTE. And on trend. And stylish. And not going to fall apart in 5 minutes. WITH all the fancy-dancy extras like anti-glare and scratch-proof lenses. And the cost?
About $50. TOTAL. Maybe. If that. Talking frames, lenses…all the bells & whistles. And yep – with shipping.
GlassesShop.com. A hidden gem of a site. Sharing with you, but let’s keep this our secret, ok? <wink> My vision is <knock on wood> pretty darned good. But, I need glasses when I want to see a movie or a lecture or when I’m trying to find a street sign…when I’m lost….which I usually am. #Guilty.
Do I want to drop the price of a LV bag for glasses? Um, nope. But do I want to look fashionable and do I want to see clearly with quality frames? Um, yep.

So pretty! I would want to wear those frames even if I didn’t need glasses. They can go with anything.
This is great info. Glasses can be so expensive. These look so cute on you too!
Terri Steffes says
Those are cute and just in time for school. I could use some new readers. I hate to admit that!
I am so glad I have strong vision (for now!) as I know how expensive they can be. I’m sharing this with a few of my girlfriends who are always looking for stylish pairs! XO

I need to wear glasses for reading so I know how expensive they can get! The ones your wearing are super cute and seem like such a great brand!
My eye appt is next week and I am definitely going to order my new glasses online. Last time I spent $300 and I was sick to my stomach. I will definitely try this company.
My goodness, I agree! Last time I picked out glasses I was coming in under budget then OF COURSE after adding in the anti-glare and whatever other necessary features I was over by about $350. Insanity! Love this post and I’ll have to give them a shot! <3

Perfect timing! I am over due for a new pair of glasses. I’m heading over to the site now!
Amanda Love says
Glasses are getting more and more common these days, especially since we use a lot of gadgets throughout the day. If you’re going to wear prescription glasses, might as well look good in them! Love the frames and what’s even better is that if fits the budget!
Laura Hinckley says

jill conyers says
I need new glasses. I’m just not sure what style I want to go with this time. It has to be a style that works for a few years.
Thank you so much for this post! I will have to look into it. Those frames look stunning on you OMG
These frames look fab on you Karen – love the cat eye!

Reesa Lewandowski says
I absolutely love your frames! The fact that they are not expensive is also super appealing.
Blythe Alpern says
I keep putting off getting glasses because they can be so pricey. Also I don’t want to admit my perfect sight is no longer perfect. Will be sure to check out Glasseshop.com though when I need some frames. A girl’s gotta look good.
I’ve been avoiding the visit to the eye doctor. I need to start wearing glasses (after a ten year hiatus). I am glass to find some glasses that are affordable.
Mardene Carr says
Glasses can be so darn expensive. I love those frames. Obviously they are not skimping on quality
Ana De- Jesus says
50 dollars for prescription glasses is excellent! Plus I adore cat eye frames and yours is gorgeous, so many vintage feels!
Iesha Thompson says
These are great glasses for a great price. I need to get new prescription glasses soon, but have delayed because I didn’t know where to find any that I like.

Great post! I love the glasses and will tell my mom to look into it.
Leslie Hernandez says
This look great on you and are at a great affordable price, my sister and nephew would definitely benefit from this since they both use glasses. Thanks for sharing this!!!
Cathy M says
Those frames look so cute on you!! I totally need to update my glasses–this year I opted for new contacts so I put my health care budget toward those, but I think I may need to check out Glasses Shop now too!
You really rocked these! Love the chicness of them and your mini photo shoot!
I appreciate this post as I have had to spend WAY too much money on glasses over the years!! I will definitely be checking out this site – thanks!!

I am so checking that website out! I got glasses during 10th grade. I switched to contacts when my vision got so blurred that I barely saw the tv screen. But sometimes contacts can be a pain in the butt! So I change to framed glasses. I need stylish ones for when I go out, because mine are so not street style approved.
Love the frames you picked out. So trendy. I love that they have prescription services as well
So awesome, these glasses look fab on you!! Xo
