Serious Me & Glasses Giveaway

Normally I wear glasses only at home. As result, friends are surprised when they see me without the usual contact lenses. Most friends agree I look completely different, a great deal more serious. Anyhoo, I was thinking about getting a new pair of black frame glasses that says serious and business-like, instead of my usual trendy styles. So do I look more serious?

As I have never purchase glasses online before, I was slightly skeptical when savvy folks at Eye Buy Direct offered me a pair to review. To make sure I have the right measurement, I first measured my own glasses (that fits perfectly) from side to side to determine the correct width. Then, I picked the style I liked on the site. You can also upload your own photo online and impose a pair of glasses to see it for yourself on the website. My glasses arrived and I was pretty happy. To be honest, I didn't know a gal could buy a pair of glasses, including lenses, for around $100 because of my high prescription.
Of course, what is all this without offering one lucky Savvy Mode readers a chance to try for herself/himself. This is what the winner will receive:

*One winner will get one free pair of prescription eyeglasses.( Frame + lenses )
*Please note this is with the exception of designer eyewear and sunglasses. 
*Lenses option except ’thin as possible’

How to Enter:

1. For one entry, MUST let me know which is your favorite style on  EyeBuyDirect.com
2. Entry period from 9/8/2010 to 9/21/2010, only US readers this time.
3. For 2 additional entries, tweet, Facebook or share this this giveaway on your blog. Please let me know if you have done so.
4. For 2 more entries, join Eye Buy Direct on Twitter and/or Facebook Please let me know if you have done so.

P.S. For those who are thinking about ordering but is apprehensive, there is a satisfaction guarantee rule.  If a consumer is not happy within 7 days, there is a refund or new pair policy. In my past experience, once I buy a pair of glasses, it is mine forever. Anyhoo, if you do wear glasses, check out the site because it is very savvy!

  2. My favorite pair of glasses would have to be the Avignon. They are burgundy on the outside and purple on the inside.
    They remind me of my black kate spades.
    They had the purple on the inside too.

  16. Those glasses are lovely! And I completely relate on only wearing glasses when at home. My friends started expecting me to have had the plague or no sleep when I would come to school in them. Now I'm trying to get over that block though. I have two pairs that I love but contacts are still so much more comfortable!

  19. I didn't know you wore glasses, either. Thanks for the recommendation for this site! I also have a high prescription (so I have to opt for the pricey composite lenses, anti-glare coating, and scratch protection, all of which racks the price up pretty quickly), so that is great to know that glasses can be had for such a great price. Not sure whether I'll have a chance to figure out something prior to the end of the contest, but I'll certainly take it under advisement.
    You look GREAT in your choice, by the way!

  20. Count me in! I need to get a new pair - I haven't bothered to update the lenses in my current pair for a few years!

    It's hard to choose, but I think I'm leaning toward these: http://www.eyebuydirect.com/plastic-glasses-bourges-black-clear-p-4466.html I'm a huge fan of plastic frames.

    (And you look so good with glasses - definitely more serious, but still stylish!)
