My glasses have arrived. It’s so nice to see everything clearly! But of course the thing you want to see are the frames! Bonlook was kind enough to give me a discount on a pair to give them a try. They set me up with a stylist who worked with me to find the right pair for my face.
For reference, here is a photo of me sans-glasses (and apparently eyebrows… sometimes being a natural blonde is awful).
The first frames are the Bonnie & Clydes in black. These are the frames the stylist from Bonlook selected for my face shape and size. I love them. The frames are nice and thin for a large frame. They don’t overwhelm my face or look too big and costumey, but of course it is going to take some time to get used to wearing glasses at all. I’ll have to keep my eyes out for a pair in the brown when they are back in stock. I think they would look great in a softer color too.
The second pair of frames is the Hoovervilles in brown. I picked these ones out myself. We actually had a hard time getting a good photo of me in these. They are thicker than the Bonnie & Clydes. The shape is classic. I love the color. The texture is more matte, very little shine. I can see me wearing these often. They make me feel studious.
Overall I have to say that the Bonnie & Clydes are my favorites. I think they are more flattering and balanced on my face size. The stylist that helped me did a great job picking out a pair that really flatter my face. They really have it down to a science over there.
As far as the technical stuff goes, they feel nice and sturdy. My prescription seems accurate. Shipping was pretty speedy. I think it took about a week from order to arrival on my doorstep. Their customer service was beyond wonderful. I’m really very pleased.

Note // Thanks to my little brother who helped me take the photos. Although for his sake I would like to note I did the final editing. As his expertise is cars and snowboarders, he’s not a big fan of my dialed back coloration. ;P Thanks Drew!
