Firmoo Glasses Review



   Hello friends! Let me tell you how I happen to be posting on a Friday. There were two posts I wanted to publish soon and just today I had a special outfit photoshoot that I can also hardly wait to share. Hence, you get back-to-back Friday/Saturday postings this week! Today's post is extra special already because it is a review for a company called Firmoo! Take a look at the glasses they sent me...



   Firmoo.com is an online company which offers stylish glasses available with prescription or non-prescription lenses. I was excited when they asked me to write a review for them! After looking at the frames in the blogger selection, trying them on virtually (which no longer seems to be an option), and asking my mom's opinion, I decided on a pair of retro-style tortoiseshell frames. I uploaded a scan of my prescription from my eye doctor, put in my pupillary distance and ordered my new glasses!


    My glasses arrived just nine days after ordering them. I am glad to say that the prescription is just right! This pair is a little bigger than I expected (which probably stemmed from the fact that I forgot which ones I ordered...silly me), but is still cute! The proportions are a bit too large for my face, but not to the extent that it's a problem. Happily, this pair has nose-pads, which means that they can be adjusted to fit the narrow bridge of my nose. Though different from what I normally wear, I like the overall look of these fun frames and hope to feature them in upcoming vintage-style outfits! 


   These glasses came in a cute and sturdy case, which also contained a lens cleaner. Along with these, I was sent a repair kit and a soft travel pouch. The repair kit consists of a screwdriver on a jumpring, extra screws, and extra nosepads. I appreciate all the handy extras that came with the glasses!

  So, the big question is, would I recommend Firmoo to you? Yes, but with a word of caution. Firmoo has fun styles available, prompt customer service, and offers sturdy frames at a decent price. My warning is just to be aware that if you have a petite face the frames might be a little bit big. One can't try glasses on if ordering them online, so keep in mind that it's a risk. Besides that, I have no reason not to recommend this company. Click HERE to see what they have to offer.

What do you think of my new glasses?
Do you see any frames on Firmoo.com that suit your style?

    1. My opinion on the glasses: I did notice they seemed a bit bigger than what I'm used to seeing you wear, but I figured it was a fashion statement, and when you mentioned retro it seemed to tie in. Glad you did this review!

  3. I like them so much! Even if they are bigger than expected, they don't come across that way because of the half-rims. They probably should put up pictures of models wearing the glasses on their website for size reference lol.

    1. Thanks Lauren! :) Haha, that would be nice! They had a tool where you could upload a photo of yourself and "try on" the glasses, but it doesn't seem to be there any more.

  11. Okay you look so completely adorable in those frames! Makes me wish I needed glasses so I had a reason to buy them. ;)

  12. You clearly have an eye for all things vintage. I love how the frames are so retro; it gives your face some added dimensions and angles. Also, they look geeky but seemingly functional, so I’m sure it would go well on your retro-vintage style. Gorgeous choice!
