I was pretty excited when I was contacted by Firmoo to participate in reviewing a pair of their glasses. I hadn't heard of Firmoo before, but I'm a fan of trendy glasses.
My latest pair's from Warby Parker and has a "I go with everything" style and color. So when I was browsing through Firmoo, I decided to go with something fun and different. Which is why red happened. Then this glasses style guide post happened.
I hope it's not completely disastrous.
Disclaimer: Although Firmoo sent me these free glasses for review, my opinion of the product is 100% honest.
I chose red frames because I realized I have a decent amount of red clothes in my fall/winter wardrobe and hoped and prayed I could pull them off.
I won't lie. I was super impressed with the packaging. When I picked the glasses up, I was surprised at how sturdy they felt. Firmoo has pretty cheap prices for frames, so I think I was expecting a filmsy product. These frames are not.
I am also in love with the case, which is a consistent reminder of my continuing travel fever.
Everything Firmoo sent: Glasses, case, sleeve, and repair kit. I was also very impressed with the repair kit. It's like they knew I've fixed screws in my frames with a steak knife before.
Ugh okay, one of my ears is much higher than the other one (wahhh lol) so these images are me trying them on pre-adjustments. Which is why they're going to look a little crooked.
But you get the idea.
For this first outfit, I paired a Forever 21 sweater with black leggings from Ross. Because I'm super fancy like that.
Anyway, it's super casual and I liked the way the frames look with it.
I think they are Gizmo approved.
The next look is the glasses paired with my red Forever 21 peacoat (last season's)
I was a fan of the pop of color the glasses brought to my face with the coat.
Here's a close up of the frames. Also my face.
My last style was pairing the glasses with a simple red cardigan.
Cardigan: Papaya; Blouse: Forever 21; Boots: Lauren Conrad
End result: I really really like the frames. They're fun and something I don't think I would have normally picked out for myself, but I'm glad I did! I'm not sure how they work with non-red articles of clothing, but I guess it's good that I'm a fan of red.
Firmoo is letting me give away $15 voucher code for their Classic Frames to 5 blog readers (guys, that's like HALF OFF some of the pairs of glasses they offer.)
