New glasses

Do you wear glasses? I love the big nerdy glasses look, but I lost my beloved pair a few months ago. I wanted to buy a new inexpensive pair online, but, to be honest, I dragged my feet because I worried that if I couldn't try them on, they wouldn't look good on me. But then a reader, MacKenna, sent this photo of her wearing Lookmatic glasses. How adorable is she?!

Inspired, I chose a cute pair, tried them on virtually, and voila. My awesome new glasses were $95, prescription included. I'm psyched by how well (and quickly) it worked out. I'd highly recommend it!
(Top photo by MacKenna; photos by our photographer/babysitter Sophie:) Glasses are the Woody, my shirt is Madewell and gray jeans are Emerson Fry.)

question re: emersonmade pants: are you tall or did you have them altered? if altered, did they turn out nice?

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww..you look so adorable, Joanna!

Jenny said...

Joanna, how do you try glasses on virtually?

naomi: said...

cute! i've been hearing great things about spex club. love your glasses, i'm a tortoise shell kinda girl too!

Joanna Goddard said...

anonymous, i didn't have them altered. i'm 5'6" and a quarter! :) they are a great length on me -- i can wear them with flats, sneakers or low heels, and sometimes i roll them once at the bottom just to be hip, haha.

Joanna Goddard said...

jenny, you can upload a photo of yourself! then you can put the glasses on your face in the photo:) it's actually pretty awesome/hilarious.

Hannah said...

LOVE your new glasses! I need a new pair and have wanting to get a big, nerdy looking pair :) well, used to be nerdy. now big glasses are cool again! :)

Jenny said...

Oh yes, so you can. Missed that! Cheers :)

Sara Szatmary said...

You look gorgeous! So glad you look the plunge!

Ana Magdalena said...

Beautiful frames, and the price? "say no more" ... thanks for introducing this website.

Mandy said...

Those glasses look sooo cool on you! And indeed very cheap ;-)

X Mandy

Joanna Goddard said...

haha, yes, hannah, giant glasses are so nerdy, they're cool :)

Jessica Wray said...

I have been meaning to do this but I lost my prescription card. It's just a matter of me going to my eye Dr. and wrangling my prescription free. They insist they have the best prices available... ya right :)

catherine said...

they look cute, but it would be nice to see them with you facing the camera instead of looking down. curious, are these glasses courtesy of spex club? aka is this a sponsored post? I've noticed you don't disclose sponsored posts all the times, although it's not required by the FTC for bloggers. It seems a bit fishy how many times certain items/companies are the sole topics of many of your posts (pinhole press, for example)

And do you link madewell and emerson because you make money if somebody clicks the links and make purchases through an affiliate site, such as rewardstyle or amazon? because it makes me want to clear my cookies every time I visit your page (or not visit it at all)

Is there a reason why you don't have a disclosure about affiliate programs, linking items that you receive a commission off of, or mentioning when you've received an item courtesy of, to review and keep? I'd be curious to know what a "big time" blogger like you feels about the ethics of selling and making money off of readers, and not telling them, up front, about it.

Erin said...

I just ordered a nerdy pair (and my first pair of glasses in my life!) today from Warby Parker. I hope I look as adorable as you do in yours when mine arrive! xo

meesch said...

LOVE those glasses on you! I've always been hesitant to purchase frames online, but now that I know it's worked for someone else, I might have to do it (if only to save time!)

where is your pretty necklace from?

Dancing Branflake said...

Cute! They fit your style so perfectly! You somehow just upped your hip factor by a thousand, something I didn't think was even possible because you are so freakin cute all the time.

Anonymous said...

Joanna which style did you pick? They're so cute!

katie [the bright life] said...

I LOVE them! They look so great on you! I'm in the market for a new pair...I've got some semi-nerdy black frames, but I'm looking for bigger, browner, rounder full-on nerdy specs. They're the best! Xo, Katie

Ash said...

But which style did you order?? I can't pick! And was the size accurate like in the virtual try on?? I really want the Preston frames....

Un coup d'aile said...

they are very nice!!!! i got new ones last week!!! and i 'm in love! in france we don't do the visual thing so i had so cash out almost 500 €

Anonymous said...

Love them! I've wanted a pair of nerd frames for a while, but I look like a dork in them (and not in a good way). I just ordered a cute pair that actually look nice on me, though. Can't wait!

photohogger said...

Those are super! Really goes well with your face. And $88 - INCLUDING prescrip?!

Anna said...

girl, i love them!

nicole said...

I love your new glasses. I've been avoiding glasses for so many years... I think it's time to bite the bullet! Thanks for the push. xo.

Marita said...

Love your necklace! Any info on it would be much appreciated!

B. in the Know said...

Super cute - I love them! I totally want to get a pair for myself - that is a great deal!
Much love,
B

Sarah said...

They look awesome on you. Good pick! The virtual try ons are great. I was thinking of getting some Warby Parkers. They send you up to 7 or 8 glasses to try on so you can actually wear them. For every 1 pair of glasses purchased, they donate a pair for people in need. Cool huh?

You AND Toby are soooo cute!

Anonymous said...

I LOVE the glasses. I want to order some ASAP! They didn't by chance offer a reader discount (due to your great marketing for them)? wink....here's to hoping :)

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, $88 including prescription! spex club's philosophy is that eyeglasses are way too overpriced and they're selling them for down-to-earth, affordable prices.

SisterBatik said...

They really suit you : )

Joanna Goddard said...

thanks for these sweet comments! i got the woody, but they're sold out now -- i'll email them to see if they're getting any back in stock. i also love the wayfarer glasses, such a flattering and classic style.

jeanette from everton terrace said...

My daughter is looking for some new glasses and has been a bit nervous about getting them online. She reads your blog so I won't bother forwarding to her :)

jenny said...

They look great on you! Good choice. (:

maggie said...

Those are cute!! I'm looking to get a similar pair, but I get mine from the zenni optical website. Pretty similar to spex, but MUCH cheaper! I've been putting off ordering, too... Maybe I'll get around to it tonight seeing how cute yours are!

Megan said...

I just got spex club glasses too. I got a deal from Refinery 29 and got two pairs for $88. Which style did you choose?

Joanna Goddard said...

catherine, thanks for your note! this is not a sponsored post. i'd love to do a post coming up, though, about the business model of my blog, explaining how i (and other bloggers) work very hard on both the editorial and business sides of our blogs to make it feasible. especially because i work most evenings now to make it possible to have my blog as a job:) thanks for the idea. xoxo

Lauren Kent said...

I've worn glasses since I was 7, but recently was told I didn't need them anymore. I was more than a bit gutted, because I was a geek chic glasses wearer too!
They look so rad on you, Joanna!

Erica @ Acire Adventures said...

Cute! I thought about ordering online, but just couldn't do it. I have a hard time finding glasses to fit my face anyways, I didn't want to complicate it further. But that sure is a good price!

Joanna Goddard said...

wow, lauren, i've never heard of that! that's awesome, did your eyes just correct themselves?

Jessica said...

super cute!!! I don't wear glasses (except for the occasional night time driving) but I totally bought a non RX pair just to pull off this look! Does that make me a nerd? Lol.

Leah Buckley said...

I ordered some spexclub glasses last week...pretty excited to get them and see how they look in person! yours are very cute.

re: blogging and sponsored posts, I'm looking forward to your post about your business model. i absolutely don't mind affiliate links/sponsored posts/etc, but i do like to know when they're being used.

AmyKelleyBell said...

You should check out Warby Parker for frames. Their company is set up like Toms shoes where every pair of glasses purchased donates to their cause. They travel the world giving children in 3rd world countries eye exams and outfitting them with a pair of glasses. They are only $95 a pair - slightly more than Spex club, but certainly worth it considering the charity involved. www.warbyparker.com

Mai Pai said...

I like your new glasses! I just did the same exact thing, only from BONLOOK, and you inspired my post! (I'm not sold on mine yet though).

Super cute! I want a pair myself. And btw, when did Toby get so big? :)

thinkpriddy said...

that is so cheap! thank you for sharing!! seriously, i need these

M said...

Thanks for the glasses and featuring me in your post! That was a fun surprise when I pulled up your blog today.
PS Yours are really adorable.

Angel Y. said...

Holy cheap! I love these and I will definitely put in my order soon.

Nomadic D. said...

They are so cute! And I can't believe how CHEAP they were! I wear glasses and I absolutely LOVE my big nerdy ones, but I don't think I ever would have had the guts to buy them online without trying them on. Though this idea of virtually trying them on is pretty appealing...

http://nomadic-d.blogspot.com/

Diana said...

You look fantastic, Jo! I desperately need some new specs, as mine are literally falling apart. People always ask me if I'm sporting a new trend in eye wear. Maybe I should just go with it?

Hola Joanna,
This is the first time that I drop you a note. I just wanted to tell you that I follow your blog from Madrid (Spain), I like it a lot....
P.s. No comments about the glasses, i do not wear them!

You look like a young Diane Keaton!! Beautiful.

joanna, i just saw your sweet response to caroline, and i'd love it if you did a post about the business side of your blog...i love the creative side of blogging but have no idea about how to turn a blog into a job or if doing so is feasible for me...but learning more would be really, really awesome :) just wanted to let you know...

Will have to check out spex club. That is a great photo of you and Toby!

Joanna Goddard said...

hannah, wonderful! i'd love to share. will start working on that post now. :)

Shal said...

Joanna you look SO good! I have been spotting these large nerdy glasses everywhere and am tempted to get one too but... am slightly averse to following fads! Even though, I would have gotten some, fad or no fad! :)

There is nothing wrong with a great big pair of nerdy glasses. I cant imagine wearing anything else :-) x

Gabriela said...

I love your new glasses! The funny thing I noticed about getting big "nerdy" glasses is that not only is the plastic chunky frame way more comfortable, but I can see better! Trying on an old smaller pair made me feel like all I could see was the frames. And the nerdy ones are so hip! The ultimate accessory these days. The only thing that bothers me now is the extra sunny days, though few and far btwn here in SF. Do you have prescription sunglasses too?

Anonymous said...

I think they are super cute on you! Great price. Glasses have gotten very expensive these days.

re: sponsored posts: I have to admit I have wondered that too about your blog. You link to many products and I figured they had to be affiliate links sometimes. I too like to know when a link is an affiliate or when it's a sponsored post. Your biz model post will be very enlightening. You certainly have managed to market your lifestyle/image very well and I'm sure many readers are falling over themselves to buy the products you wear and/or suggest. You're like the Oprah of the blogosphere!

Nice choice! Also, Toby is TO DIE FOR CUTE!!!!!

they suit you so well Joanna! it must be a lot less hassle to buy glasses online, maybe I'll try it next time. on a side note, Toby looks adorable in this picture! xo

Kerry said...

Wow, Toby is all Alex! Have you compared photos of you and Alex at Toby's age? My mom and my brother looked like the same child when they were each around 3 or 4. Kind of spooky. But then he grew up to look a lot like my dad.

And great glasses!

Fancy Pants said...

Super cute. Also, I regret to inform you, that Toby looks more and more like a little boy and less and less like a baby with every new photo. My goodness he is precious!!

chrissy said...

I love the glasses! very cute :)
lol how on earth did you know you can virtually try on glasses.. i wouldn't have know that.

i bought some glasses from spex club after seeing them on your site a few months ago. i was so surprised that the prescription was perfect, and the glasses have a better fit than any others i've tried. thanks for the recommendation!

You're making me wish I wore glasses!

I love your new look! Makes me wish I needed glasses (well... almost!). :)

I love these glasses! I saw someone beat me to suggesting Warby Parker, but they're great because you can try 5 pairs for 5 days for free! I really have to try glasses on because they have to be perrrrfect. I love both sites!

Also, I highly appreciate you linking everything you post about. I know you don't do sponsored posts because you've mentioned it a few times, and I think it's really admirable that you link the said brand/shop/etc regardless. I love to be able to just click and have what I'm looking for right in front of me :). You're also very good with giving credit for pictures and things which is something a lot of bloggers need to learn.

Hannah said...

I recently got 2 pairs of SpexClub glasses for $88 from the Refinery 29 Reserve coupon. They're great! I'll have to post them and send you the link sometime. :)

michal said...

I buy my glasses from Zenni Optical, where you can find glasses (prescription included) anywhere form $6-45. Such cheap glasses sound a little sketchy, but I've loved every pair!! And when you're spending $10 on glasses, you don't have to worry so much that they won't look good, because they weren't very expensive.

asiajane said...

Cute glasses. I ordered some virtually from Warby Parker and I was a little nervous-- but they worked out great! No fuss, no muss, and only $98 (plus they donate a pair to someone in need).

Jessica May Lords said...

I alternate between four pairs of glasses and two pairs of rx sunglasses, and not one pair cost over $30 total (with lenses). I use Goggles4u.com (they're alright, not lot of selection), Zennioptical.com (love them), and coastal.com (like them on Facebook and get a pair free, just pay shipping and coatings). My newest pair, that I LOVE:

I think you'd like these:

When glasses are so inexpensive, I think of them as just accessories. For $30 I'll buy a pair to match a blouse! I only wear contacts once a week, so I get a lot of use out of my glasses.

Anonymous said...

I think it's a great site, but I just ordered glasses from there and unfortunately I have to send them back. A word of warning: If you have a high prescription (i.e. need thick lenses like me) try the thin lens option (which is more expensive.) Mine came in the mail last week and I had to laugh at how thick the lenses were. They looked like coke bottle glasses! They were true nerd glasses (but not in a good way.)

Elysse said...

I don't know if anyone has already asked you this... (so many comments, lazy to scroll through)

What style are your glasses. I've been looking for tortoise glasses. Thanks! I love your blog! I'm a newbie!

Carissa said...

I have some Warby Parker home-try-ons in the mail to me as I type! I definitely need a new pair of glasses... mine are about 4 years old and all scratched up! not to mention the prescription is a bit old... but I may have to go check out Spex Club now :) you're looking super cute in your glasses! (as is MacKenna!)

Amy said...

I've been wearing glasses that have been getting progressively nerdy. Love them. I'm at uber nerd at this point. :)

romanholiday said...

Oh my, those look fabulous on you! Then again, I tend to think that you look terrific in everything (seriously!). I've been So curious about SpexClub and am in desperate need of new glasses, but I still don't trust the virtual try-on. I wish they would offer free pairs to try-on at home.

Anonymous said...

I don't know if someone has already asked, but which frames is the reader MacKenna wearing?

Tbadee said...

hope I'm not posting twice.. I just had to say how adorable Toby is and how much he looks like Alex! Also, I just got new glasses and love them! They're Paul Smith, and they're the best new accessory! (kind of hipster+nerdy chic) :)

Chessa! said...

you look fantastic in your glasses...and btw, it looks like you're carrying a mini-Alex here! Toby is his dad! but then sometimes he looks JUST like you. Isn't that so funny how that happens in different photos?

I am a big fan of you in those glasses and of you owning that extra quarter of an inch!

could you do a hair post with pictures of your haircut and how you style it, please?
I love the way its thinner at the bottom and layered, and would love to see more pictures.
Thanks!

Jo - I think you look so like Wonder Woman before she did her twirls and turned into actual wonder woman - hot hot hot glasses!

Your blog is just so so lovely - really enjoy reading it from rainy old Dublin - will deffo be using your NYC recs on my next visit - they're amazeballs and am so excited to see the city from a non-tourist point of view.


Also your little boy is the cutest little cherub in your pictures - he reminds me of my 25 year old bro when he was that small - so squishy!

koblinsc said...

Omg, I love glasses! I must have 10 different pairs by now. My intention is to cycle between them, coordinating them with my outfits, but of course I'm lazy, so I really only cycle between 2 or 3 that go with everything.
AND!
I love your outfit, Joanna. The glasses, the button-up...and that necklace! Lovely :D

Sara B. said...

The glasses are adorable and that Toby....overwhelming cuteness!

P.S. I admire your diplomacy. ;)

I love the glasses. I don't have to wear them, but I dread the day I do because I fear I won't suit any.

The Jilly said...

Those look great on you! I have (or had, they were stolen - silly to steal someone's prescription glasses) a pair of prescription sunglasses from SpexClub that I loved. They are a really easy company to deal with - returns and all. I also have two pairs from Warby Paker. I love them because of their home try-on feature. In addition to these (yes, I have a lot of glasses) I have a couple of pairs from Coastal Contacts - they do a lot of free glasses giveaways.

I started having problems wearing contacts about a year ago (probably a side affect from having to stare at a computer all day for my job) and I was really thankful there are now a lot of online companies providing alternatives to expensive frames found in most doctors' offices.

Thank you for sharing this with other people so they may have the opportunity to save money on something so many of us need.

Linda said...

I actually think you are prettier with glasses than without, they are soooo cool and your outfit is beautiful.
& Toby. No words. I just love him!

Anonymous said...

Wow, I don't think Catherine's very legitimate question about sponsorships/affiliate links warranted her being called a bitch!
Perhaps someone should share their bottle of chill pills!

shoegirl said...

Love the big/nerdy glasses- you both look great! I've gone back to glasses full-time (from contacts) in the last year because of all the great, inexpensive frames that are offered now. Can't say enough good things about Warby Parker. I'm hoping to get my third pair from them for Christmas...

I too am looking forward to a post on the business behind the blog. Blogging is my main outlet living as expat in Europe and I'd love to learn more about how to develop it. Thanks Joanna!

Trista said...

I love your glasses! I say, wear them with pride! I have glasses and I chose chunky plastic frames too :)

Hi Joanna,
I have been following your blog for over a year now and I would also be really interested in a post about the business side of it. I recently (very recently) started a blog of my own and am curious to learn all I can about the world of blogging.

P.S. Your glasses are adorable! I've been thinking about getting some online for a while now, but had the same doubts that you did. I think you may have inspired me to try it out :)

Holly said...

another really great and super inexpensive online glasses shop in zennioptical.com they have tons of styles. I've gotten a couple pairs from there and love them!

Wear The Canvas said...

so cute! I need to find a good place to buy glasses because my last pair were like $300!!! Thanks for the tip.

Chardy said...

Thank you for this fabulous recommendation! I have been wanting a pair of the wayfarer style frames, but hesitated to invest in a trend that might have a short life. What an easy way to do it. Love your Blog!

g. said...

You are the epitome of chic! Love them on you! xo.

Hollie said...

I just bought a pair of glasses from Spex Club a few weeks ago. I think the hardest part was only choosing one pair, there are so many cute one!

Apricots+Silk said...

Oh, Jo, you're so adorable! And what a great pair and for such a grand price.
I got a pair of glasses recently...though, I admit, they're faux. But I enjoy that as an accessory.

I love nerdy glasses too... I've got loads and can't get enough!

nichole (eat & be pretty) said...

i love these! I've been wanting a pair of the Ray Ban eyeglasses like these ones, but I'm usually just in my contacts anyways. That's an amazing price though!

Sammi said...

I knew the shirt was Madewell!!xx

Mel said...

Did you look at Warby Parker's glasses at all? They have tons of cute nerdy frames and they're all only $99 for the frames and lenses. They also let you try on five pairs at home for free, with no shipping fees to receive them or send them back. And I think they give away a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair you buy. Something to remember for next time! :) Love the tortoiseshell!

Maria said...

They are awesome glasses! I would love a pair like that although I'm really not sure I can pull of the 'geek chic' look....

jennifer said...

Those glasses are fabulous on you! I have a jean question though: I know this is above and beyond - but I have the hardest time with her pants sizing. Do you wear J Brand or other standard jeans to compare sizes with. I'm always a 28 in their jeans - but according to website I think I'd be way off in hers. How did you find sizing? Any advise please.

Joanna Goddard said...

jennifer, good question! i wear a 27 or 28 in jeans, too, and i wear a 28 in emersonmade. they fit really, really well on me. so i think they're pretty true to size. (the only time i wear a 27 is if it's a brand that often runs big, like Gap)

Joanna Goddard said...

for those who asked, i got the Woody glasses and they're back in stock:

xoxo thanks for all these really sweet comments!

Rocio said...

I got my big nerdy NASA engineer glasses at CoastalContacts.com - if you like them on facebook, you can be informed of when their next sale is. What they do is give you the glasses with the standard type of lens (extra for super thin, or whatever coatings) and all you have to pay is shipping. So I paid $15 dollars for them. It's a great deal!

Sofia said...

I LOVE THEM!!

Hi Joanna! I love the pair of glasses you ordered and I checked it out on the site but, they appear to not be there. Do you have any other similar suggestions? Thanks!

I wear the Kate Spade Blakely. They are turquoise on the inside, which is kind of fun. I think I'll buy my next pair from Warby Parker because I love the mission of that company.

I can't WAIT to read your biz model post - I just started receiving ad money for two different blogs that I write and it's a tricky path to go down.

Yup. Big, and perhaps nerdy, looks nice. The noticeable frame has a nice image when you have the confidence to wear it, and you look great with those new glasses of yours. Cheers!
