Eye Buy Direct – My Experience

To buy online or not to buy online? That is the question.

I am a huge online shopper but sometimes I just don’t know whether or not I can trust a website, especially with all the spam these days. We’ve all seen ads or something offering incredible deals on frames, lenses and sunglasses but are they legit? Just to name a few of the companies that I have seen a lot of recently: Warby Parker, Eye Buy Direct, and Firmoo.  These sites have one thing in common…affordable frames!

I tried Warby Parker and I enjoyed the fact that I could pick five frames and have them shipped to my home to try on or if your like me and impatient you have everything shipped to your job :).  If I liked any of the frames I order online and input my prescription but if I didn’t like any of my picks then I simply return them and that’s it, no strings attached and no obligations. Shoot they even paid for the shipping to and from me…that was a plus! I felt that Warby Parker had a lot of styles but I also felt that they didn’t have enough styles, nothing really caught my eye, therefore, I did not purchase from them but I had a good experience.

So what’s up with Eye Buy IMG_MBD1Direct?! Everything!! Don’t tell me you haven’t seen them because they are all over the insta! There is something there for everyone and I mean EVERYONE. With so many styles, colors, and sizes, it was incredibly hard to choose frames when I wanted like 10 of them. Unlike with Warby Parker, you do not get to pick five frames to try on at home but what you do have is 14-days to return your purchase. If you are not happy or satisfied you can return your glasses for a refund and/or exchange but honestly, I think you will be so happy with your purchase that the thought of returning them will be non-existent.

As I was walking into my local Whole Foods the other day I noticed a store next door called Hobby Lobby. I thought to myself “aww how nice, they are finally making stores for men” haha..WRONG! The temptation to a shop is EVERYWHERE! It’s no wonder why women are shopaholics, temptation looks us in the eyes every time we walk into a Tarjay. I guess some or even most women are just natural spenders. I, for one am not going to sugar coat it, I work to spend. I can’t even tell you how many promises I have made to myself to not shop and I just break them every time. I tried giving it up for Lent…yea, no success.
