I own 8 pairs of eye glasses—I know it’s ridiculous, but I never claimed not to be—5 of which are from Clearly (AKA Coastal if you’re in the states).
I like to switch it up depending on my mood:. I have a favorite pair for movie-watching, a pair perfect for driving (which live in my glovebox and I’ve coined my “car glasses”), and I have certain pairs I like to wear depending on my outfit or how I’m feeling. So sue me!
So in celebration of four-eyes and spectacle-lovers everywhere, I thought I’d take you through my most recent few pairs and do a giveaway of a free pair of exclusive designer specs to one lucky lady or lad (open to Canadian entrants only)! To enter, simply comment on this post sharing the name(s) of your favorite pair(s). Or just write “2+2=4 eyes.” Seriously, I’ll officially count that as an entry. (EDIT: CONTEST NOW CLOSED)
I have a square face (where my jaw is the same width as my forehead), so I’ve always opted for rectangular-shaped glasses thinking the suited me best, but I took a risk on these super-round Joseph Marc 4137 frames and they’ve become my new go-to, everyday pair.
In the write-up online, they specifically mention being a great size and shape for people with wide jaws (AKA me), and they truly are. In real life, the tortoiseshell pattern is much more subdued than what is presented online–they border on being solid deep brown, which I’m actually happier with than if they had a stronger contrasting pattern.
The keyhole cutout at the nose is also cute and gives some vintage vibes, and I like that the lenses dip down low from the arms, rather than sitting up high and covering your brow.
Next up, the Ray-Ban RX7098-48 in Havana Gold. Unfortunately, I nabbed the last pair, but they may come back in stock so keep checking Clearly. They’re a tad Terri Richardson, bordering on aviator, but a little more wearable and approachable. I love the mix of gold and tortoiseshell. They won’t be an everyday pair, but for certain days I’m feelin’ like going a little rogue, I love ’em. So does Piper, apparently.
And last but not least, some sunnies in time for spring! These are the Hardy 905S‘s with grey polarized lenses. I love how they swoop low on the sides and arc up at the bridge of the nose so your brow arches can be on fleek. They’re also really comfortable. I’ve worn them for a three-hour hike, and they didn’t bug my nose or temples like some glasses do for me after a while. Functional for a fuzzy-eyed astigmatism gal like me, and they look cool.
And just for good measure, I took a few shots of my entire Clearly specs eyeglasses collection. From top left to bottom right: Derek Cardigan 7014, Joseph Marc 4137, Ray-Ban RX7098-48 in Havana Gold, Love L746 in Tokyo Tortoise and Kam Dhillon’s Cathi in Crystal. (The cute spotted plate is from Pursuits of Happiness.)
And for anyone curious about my clothing and accessories. The dress is from Hackwith Design House, the camouflage bomber is from Topshop, my bracelet is from Cradle Jewelry, necklace from Aldo, and sandals are from Topshop.
So remember, to win a free pair of exclusive designer specs, comment sharing the name(s) of your favorite pair(s) or just write “2+2=4 eyes.”
