I have been wanting to get a new pair of glasses for ages. But honestly, who has the time to go to their local optician and spend hours trying to go through all of their models just to realize they don't have exactly what you are looking for? Me neither... So the 'try at home' service by Misterspex was a perfect fit for me. You can choose up to 4 glasses and get them send to you without them charging you anything. Then you have 10 days to try them on and send back. If you liked any of the models you can directly send them your prescription details and they will send your favorite model back to with your prescription. 

What a great service, right? Honestly, the hardest part is to choose the right one. So I went to my Instagram Stories and you helped me out. These were the ones that I ordered to try on. 












It was a pretty tough decision between the Ray-Ban model and the MK Ambrosine. Although I absolutely loved the Misterspex Aurel design, I think the model is better suited for people with lighter hair or darker skin tones at it almost blended in with my skin and wasn't opaque enough against my dark hair. Which is funny because I thought this one would suit me the most. So their 'try at home' service absolutely saved me from ordering new glasses that don't even suit me. In case you don't have the time to order a few pairs and send them back later, you can also 'try them on' on their website. For this, you simply need a webcam. Seriously, that is so much fun and totally helped me to narrow down which pairs I want to order.
Also, I wanted to add how amazing the service was. The first 'try on' package was with me the next day and my prescription glasses only took around a week. Which is perfect for an impatient online shopper like me. 

So I bet you want to know which one I chose? After consulting Instagram, Twitter and my family I decided on the Michael Kors Ambrosine style. It's probably the most classic and flattering on my face.
