Accessorize with Firmoo Glasses

You all know me.
I love hats, shoes, pretty hair ribbons, belts, scarves, flowers. Basically anything that makes a little big statement is my kind of style. This occasionally has been the despair of my sisters and my husband.
Much to my delight I've discovered a new way to accessorize. Glasses! I have to wear them because if I don't I can not be held responsible for my fashion choices. And then we would all be sorry.
But at least I can wear exciting ones.
 Recently I had an opportunity to try a pair of glasses from Firmoo. I spent at least two days choosing them. There are so many cool pairs to choose from.
I thought these were pretty great, but I know that my husband would call me nerd-girl everytime I wore them. (Hey, that might just work.)
Then I thought these would be lovely. 
In the end this was my choice.
What do you think?
Now my glasses match my lipgloss. 

Firmoo says:
  • Free glasses for new buyers
  • Free shipping worldwide on 2 pairs or more
  • Prescription sunglasses for as low as $40.00
  • In case you missed it. Free glasses for new buyers!
Find out for yourself how great shopping for glasses with Firmoo can be.

Have you ever bought glasses online? If you haven't would you buy glasses online?

New glasses

Sophia is turning out to be quite the little lady. She's really into playing dress up, raiding my scarf drawer, wearing my shoes, and my sunglasses. She's turning into me! That's just a teeny bit scary.

The pose however, is her very own.
I'm getting some new glasses that she may not borrow from Firmoo. It's an online glasses company that makes prescription glasses an accessible fashion statement.
Like these
I'm not getting that pair. I wanted to, but they have an online glasses-try-on program and I look like a wise little owl with those.
I'll post pictures of my new ones when they come.
Tell me, would you wear those super glamorous sunglasses? Or would you go for something more understated.
