And My New Rivet & Sway Frames are…

Street Smart! I had so much fun reading through your responses and Parker helped me keep a tally of which Rivet & Sway frames were in the lead.

Rockin’ my Street Smart frames in Cherry Bomb.

My glasses were ready less than one week after I placed my order (which was completely painless) and opening my package was like Christmas morning.

I’ll be honest with you, one of the things that I was afraid of when getting my glasses online was that my prescription would be wonky or the fit would be weird. I was so incredibly relieved that the Rivet & Sway technicians got it just right. I wore them right out of the box for a full day of sightseeing in New York City. Considering that I was a full-time contact lens wearer, that’s pretty dang awesome.

Their awesome branding.

The great thing about getting to keep the try-on frames for three days before having to send them back was that I actually got to wear them around the house for hours (while wearing my contacts) to see if there was any discomfort or any distortion in my line of sight due to the shape/thickness of the frames. Nothing bums me out more than shelling out hundreds of dollars for glasses only to find that I hate wearing them.

I’ve only had my Rivet & Sway glasses for a little over a week and I’ve already worn them for three full days in lieu of my contacts. My optometrist will be so proud of me since he’s always on my case about wearing contacts 24/7, year after year.

Finally, I’m not going to lie, my cherry red frames make me feel kind of hip. Cool. Edgy. As a mom in my mid-30s, I love when glasses can be a great accessory instead of just a nerdy necessity. 

My goofy face because, you know, you might not have recognized my ‘normal’ face.

As a big, fat thank you to all of my readers for helping me choose my new frames, Rivet & Sway is extending 20% off until August 26th. Every single pair of glasses they sell is $199, period.
