When it comes to anything new in fashion my good friend Emily and I are the first to want to try it out—or at least know about it (ie. I love the new gaucho pant trend this season, but my dad told me I looked like I belonged on the short bus last time I wore them, so I will continue to admire from afar!).
The new glasses brand called Felix + Iris contacted me with their new eye-wear collection that just launched last week that may revolutionize the classic pair of glasses and I couldn’t wait to be one of the first to try their system out.
I know you’re probably thinking, I’ve seen things like this before, but hear me out; you’re going to find the glasses that were meant for you. You may even fall in love with two pairs.
-They send you a free at-home try-on “Fit Kit” 4 pairs based on your preferences, coloring, your face shape and even your lifestyle, so they’re completely tailored to you.
-A marker is included in the kit to mark your pupil in the glasses to get an exact measurement for the perfect fit. No more prescription glasses headaches!
-The glasses are beautifully crafted and all stylish, yet classic styles—nothing wild or crazy.
-If you’re not thrilled with what you get, they have a no-questions-asked return policy that allows you to ship your glasses back for free, for a full refund.
-The prices are flat-rate and totally affordable for glasses (no middle man here!).
I usually have trouble finding a good pair of glasses that look good on my oval/long shaped face and with my fair skin and blonde hair, so when I find a pair, I stick with it for a while. My face shape looks best with wider and more angular frames to balance out the long, curved shape of my face. I also told them that Emily has a similar shape face, but more angular so surprisingly some worked better one one of us than the other.
We definitely had fun trying all of the glasses on together and seeing what works best on each other.
WAY too much fun.
I think these were our favorites on each of us. Head over to Emily’s blog and see what else she chose and check out my top two below and let us know what you think. Which would you choose?
The “Butler” glasses in tortoise?
or the “Morgan” glasses in blue/wine?
YOUR GLASSES SHOPPING CHEAT SHEET
STYLIST TIP: balance out your face shape with your glasses by going with the opposite of your face shape.
Ο // Round: Most angular shapes flatter your face. Stay away from round and over-sized glasses, which will make your face appear rounder.
 // Square: Glasses look great on your face, but avoid anything too boxy or wide, and stick with the complete opposite to work with your shape.
♥ // Heart Shape: You can wear just about any shape, but stay away from the cat eye shape or else it will exaggerate your features.
() // Oval: Lucky you, most shapes work well on your face but anything over-sized and too long or narrow will not work well with your face shape.
