If you’re like me, you.. get bored easily. You always want something new. You’re impulsive.. AND, you like to online shop.
Okay, I think I just summarised my whole life in a sentence! Damn, I’m simple. No, not really. Just the typical GEN Y.
So.. online shopping has come a long way. For clothing, shoes, accessories.. it’s been quite easy. We just take measurements, select our sizes, and check out! But, what about for specs? I mean, I don’t have time to go out to see an OPSM or Specsavers to try on hundreds of pairs of glasses? And I don’t want to buy them online because how it looks on the model may not be how it looks on me!
Well, Bespecd is probably just the thing you’re looking for. The “Home Trial” feature on Bespecd now allows us to “try on the glasses” for free before we order our prescription lenses! The only catch is that you do have to put in your credit card details INCASE you don’t return them, but you do get a one week trial before you have to return them!!
I got two home trial packs – specs and sunglasses, so I’m going to show you some of their designs!
Each home trial pack allows you to order 5 frames so that you can test which looks best on your face! I chose the above 5. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org your favourite 5 lenses and contact details, and they’ll send you the pack! More information on Home Trial here.
1. Minsk – Cherry Red
I don’t know, this has to be my favourite lenses. I featured it on instagram before and got your feedback too, seems to have the majority of the votes. It’s just.. so unique, yet classy.
I love the shape of the lenses because it kinda feels “cat woman”ish. And the deep cherry red colour just suits my dark hair perfectly!!
2. Wilmington – Dark Tortoise
Chose this one cause I thought it’d suit my round face but obviously makes my face look even rounder! Dislike these lenses on me but the colour of them are so cute! A little vintage looking! I’d probably recommend these on a smaller face!
Btw, check out my crazy bicep muscles here. bighead.jpg
3. Nara – Midnight Black
Another one of my favourites – as you can tell, this is in no particular order. I love these lenses because it’s like Minsk – gives a cat eye kinda look. I think these lenses suit me the most!
I don’t know about the black though.. makes me feel as if it’s abit too dark for my liking but will suit a lot more pieces of clothing! I think it also looks mysteriously sexy!
4. Bremen – Turquoise
I wanted to try more colourful lenses! I like that Bespecd focuses on more “fashion”able frames rather than the boring traditional frames! I’m abit so-so about these ones but I think they are much more fun than any other black frames!
5. Zurich – Honey Brown
Another one I was not particularly fond of but may suit others! I may have chosen the wrong colour – it’s also available in Midnight Black and Dark Smoke. This is why Home Trial is important!! Try before you buy!
6. Rhodes – Crystal
Okay, you caught me. I actually chose more than 5 for my home trial, but that’s okay, because they let me! :)
I like these lenses because they look really fun! Kind of reminds me of the lenses you can buy at the Asian street markets, but they are actually quality frames and you can add your prescription! I’m digging it – maybe suitable for those who don’t like to wear glasses but needs them!
I think overall I enjoyed trying on the specs alot! They were fun, colourful and unique! I feel like I’m going to make an order for the Minsk tonight and possibly the Nara!
What do you guys reckon?
The best thing I found about Bespecd is that you don’t need to know your prescription! Just include your optometrists’ name and address and Bespecd will contact them for you!! But if you want to make a claim on your private health fund, I’m pretty sure you still need to go to your optometrist and get your eyes checked out yearly!
Next are the sunglasses!
I’m quite picky with my sunglasses and I feel like I don’t look very good in many. But you can be the judge!
7. Izumo – Midnight Fade
Like I said, I don’t suit many sunglasses frames. Not sure why! I definitely don’t think I suit these, but your taste and face shape may be competely different!
I do love the colour combination though! The fading/ombre effect is super cute!
8. Dresden – Black Walnut
Just like the name, this pair replicates a walnut!! These frames are wooden on the tips!! Kinda crazy but very stylish!! I like the fact that they are so unique and the shape is quite nice too!! I think these sunglasses may be one of my favourites!!
These are super lightweight as well, so they won’t form marks around your face after wearing them for an hour!
9. Montpellier – Artic Leopard
Wrong choice in colour for me but I wanted something other than black and a bit funky!
10. Treviso – Burnt Chestnut
These are definitely my favourite sunglasses. I realised I don’t suit the “retro/vintage” look so much. I feel something fancy and a little sly. Thinking of picking up a pair of these too!! Thoughts?
Now, the greatest thing about Bespecd is that it’s not just convenient, but it’s super affordable. I remember those days in highschool when I couldn’t afford expensive sunglasses and went over to Paddy’s market to buy sunnies. They were about $20 but the quality was so horrible that they used to break if I ever “accidently” dropped them on the floor. Common problems include having the lenses drop out or the frames bending!!
Prices at Bespecd are very fixed and very affordable.
Standard prescription optical or non-prescription sunglasses $95
Stronger prescription optical $145
Prescription sunglasses $185
And you can still claim on your health insurance!!
The best part is the service. You have FREE SHIPPING with every order, FREE 60-DAY RETURNS and FREE HOME TRIALS. They are essentially not charging for all their services!! What have you got to lose now?
And it gets even better, the Bespecd team will donate to charity every time they sell a pair of glasses!! So as it goes,
