Accessories...Sometimes Not A Choice But A Necessity!


HAPPY FRIDAY, EVERYONE.  I have a very special deal for you today! 
I am certain there are many of you like me….you just cannot exist without your eyeglasses!  Mine are not just the reader “find-a-million-pair-at-the-grocery-store” glasses.  Mine are the serious progressive lenses “I-am-blind-without-them” glasses!!  As a lover of fashion, it is quite frustrating that my frames are so expensive and it is very hard to find quality, fashionable cheap glasses.  
You know that I love accessories.  I have tons of scarves, bracelets, and necklaces…but, I have not been able to afford more than one pair of glasses.


Until now!  I am pleased to introduce you to GLASSESUSA.COM !  This company is an answer to accessory-boredom!  They make it possible to own more than one pair with amazing prices and great selections.
Also, they have this cool feature, Virtual Mirror Feature, where you can download a picture of yourself and actually see what the frames will look like on your face…this could be fun from the kitchen table!  Once you select the frames, then you just need to send them the eyeglasses prescription and soon you will have your new glasses.  You might also want to check out their trendy sunglasses while you are on their site.
Now, for all you who follow over50feeling40, here is an amazing special MEMORIAL DAY SALE and this is a great way to add to your glasses accessory:
Take 50% off+ free shipping for all orders. Code: MEMORIAL2012
Take 10% off any order of prescription glasses.  Code:  Blog10
Super deals, girls!  Check them out today on FaceBook and Twitter @GlassesUSA…remember, your fabulous accessories must include your eyeglasses!!




Have a relaxing, fun, safe, holiday weekend.

  2. If I'm awake, I'm wearing my glasses! They are such an important accessory. I wonder how they're able to determine the vertical point at which your progression needs to start?

  3. This sure beats the $200 - $300+ for a pair of eyes you can't do without and get tired of wearing before you feel justified in replacing. Good question déjà pseu.

  6. Oh, I can't believe how expensive glasses are! I go to those "$48 a pair" places and somehow end up paying over $600 after they add my progressive lenses and everything else. Horrible!
    I've been afraid to try an online supplier because I don't know how they would map the lenses to my eyes like they do at the optometrist. Have you tried Glasses USA yourself? I would love to do that if other people have had good experience with them.

  8. I have been wearing glasses just over a year now. I choose a mans design, it was from their basic collection, but look as though it from a designer collection

  9. I am with you on accessories, and I can feel the need for glasses creeping up on me. I don't know how I will ever choose a style. It seems overwhelming. Thank you for being a true blogging friend, Pam, I just read a great post by Sacramento (did you see it?) and it's making me realize how much I value your blogging friendship. Have a great holiday weekend, my dear Pam! XO, Jill

  10. Yay! Good to know. I used to work in ophthalmology so I could get glasses heavily discounted--but those days are over. Thanks for the information. : )

  11. PAM MY DEAR!!!

    Oh, I have a pair of TITANIUM FRAMES that can go on and on and on....I just get new lenses! But you are wonderful to give us these options because glasses are so expensive! We can adorn ourselves on the cheap with jewels but glasses are a bit overpriced!

    Thank you so much for coming by to visit. I cannot wait to see what you show for Paris! FASHION, WHATEVER!!! Anita
