November 19, 2012 - Easy Outfits, Style


Does this outfit make me look smarter?  Yes!  I thought so too.

Or maybe it’s not the outfit at all.

Maybe it’s my new tortoise shell frames from online glasses retailer Firmoo.  When Firmoo offered to send me a free pair of frames to test out and review on my blog, I was all over it.  They have so many great pairs to choose from, I couldn’t decide!  But their Virtual Try On feature allowed me to upload my photo and pick this square tortoise shell pair.  According to Firmoo, 98% of their customers who use the Virtual Try On tool are satisfied with their glasses pick.  Count me among the 98%!

Ordering was super easy and they got here in just a few days.  Perfect timing too.  My lens prescription recently changed and I hadn’t yet ordered a new pair of glasses.  The minute I got them, I had to try them on.  They fit perfectly – sizing is easy on their web site.

Do you want a free pair too?   Of course you do!

Even if you don’t wear prescription lenses, you can get a free pair of non-prescription fashion frames (a la Taylor Swift) or sunglasses.   Their fun frames come in classic, modern, vintage, geek chic and hipster styles.   And these make great (and did I mention free?) Christmas gifts too!

Firmoo has launched it’s First Pair Free Program worldwide. You will absolutely fall in love with the excellent quality, affordable prices, fashionable designs, fast delivery and great customer service after trying them with paying shipping only! You can even get a refund or exchange if you are not satisfied with them. It’s totally risk free, so why not have a try?  Visit their web site and get your free pair today at

Black + Brown

The black and brown in my Firmoo tortoise shell frames inspired today’s look.  If you would’ve told me a few years back that I would mix black and brown in an outfit I would’ve said “shut the front door!”.  But I’ve really come around on it.  I mean, REALLY.  It looks smart and fresh and oh so of the moment.  Just remember to keep your browns light (taupe, caramel or cognac, not chocolate) to successfully pull off this look.

    Love the glasses on you, Alison! I got a pair of sunnies from Firmoo that I love and wear daily. 😉 They are a very cool company, especially if you like the idea of having multiple styles of frames to choose from but are on a budget.

  • Super cute specs! The whole sassy librarian thing works for you!


  • I love the pair you got! I’m so checking out this site – I need a new pair of cute specs.. and of course you look smarter 🙂

    Pearls & Paws

  • what a gorgeous blouse — I love anything with polka dots! xo

  • Cute glasses! I may have to check out their website – the price for glasses at my eye doctor is absurd.

  • I am so in love with those glasses. They look fabulous on you. Love the whole look!

  • You look great – I love the glasses on you!

  • Annie

    Love your new glasses, and love love that polka dot top! It looks great with all the black 🙂

    The Other Side of Gray

  • You are so cute! Love the glasses on you!

  • You just don’t put a foot wrong, young lady. A very cool and understated look, but the side-pony flipping over your shoulder takes it to youthful and, with the earrings, all the way to flirty. Lots to look at and learn from. Thanks again!

  • I love that polka dot blouse and your side pony tail is so cute!
