did you know i wear glasses? i wear contacts most of the time, but i’ve noticed the older i get, the more i wear my glasses. my eyes just get tired! #oldlady
i was THRILLED when david kind contacted me to see if i’d like to try out a pair of their glasses! glasses shopping is not really fun, unless you think trying to make a decision on your appearance while 3 kids also try on every.single.pair. of glasses within reach is fun. no? me neither.
the david kind experience is so different. SO different! first i filled out a super simple profile on their website and included a picture of myself. but i was in a hurry and i made a mistake: i didn’t add anything to the notes for my stylist!
soon after, i got the prettiest package on my doorstep.
and opened up to find 6 pairs of frames hand-picked for me! my stylist added notes for me – why she chose each pair, the pros of each, and the differences between them.
and then she followed up with me via email. i am slow to make decisions (hence shopping in costco optical is not always ideal), and her follow-up email was really helpful. she offered to Skype with me, but my home rarely has a Skype-able moment due to the constant noise level, so i opted out.
instead, i took phone pics of myself with my current pair, then each of the pairs she sent me. not pretty you guys. what is it about cell phone pics that distort your face? or is it just me? either way, i feel like i should’ve done my hair and makeup just as a courtesy to my stylist. but no. sorry trish!
(btw, these pics are a bit funky because i was holding the camera up high to get rid of the camera glare on the lenses, so these all look really low on my face. not so in real life.)
i told trish what i liked about my current pair, what i disliked, and what i wanted to be different. and thats where i should’ve started in the beginning. those were the types of things i should’ve added to my notes in my profile. after looking over my pictures, trish responded with her opinion of each of the frames, which were definite no’s, which she preferred, which fit well…
with her guidance (and actually my first inclination), we chose “laurel”.
yay! i wanted a slightly chunkier pair, and i love tortoise shell. they are kinda nerdy and kinda funky. love them!
so what next? this full service experience just got better. rather than making me search for my glasses rx or call my doctor, trish did it for me! they did all the work and i get my new glasses in the mail.
no running to the store to choose my glasses then again to pick them up. so easy, and i couldn’t recommend this experience more highly!
thank you david kind, not only for the great glasses, but also for the incredible service!
