The time was finally there to get myself a new pair of glasses (oh well, the time was already a long time there, but it was patiently waiting for me to accept it). And when I say ‘a new pair’, I actually mean ‘my first pair’. (If you don’t count in my real first pair of Vogue glasses that were very fashionable AT THE TIME and that I very obediently wore during car driving lessons – and that was basically it). Anyhow, let’s make a long (or actually very short) story short (even shorter): I had (almost) zero experience and/or expectations when I walked into the Eyes and More shop a few days ago.
Two friends of mine recommended me to go to Eyes and More, because here they sell glasses including prescription lenses (HAHA, Google Translate says glass for strength, isn’t that proper Dunglish?) for only €100! And what’s even more: while two pairs of glasses are still €200, you can take three pairs home with you for only €222. Of course, this is only for you if you don’t mind having a non-designer frame (and to be honest, I couldn’t care less, I don’t even see the difference).
So, I walked in, got great service from three different girls (which sometimes was a little annoying, hearing the same info three times, but hey, it was Saturday and super busy), tried on a dozen of different glasses, couldn’t make up my mind, left the store and the three girls disappointed and irritated (probably), went to Eyewish, got really upset because of the prices (why do I always pick the most expensive stuff? I DON’T EVEN SEE A DIFFERENCE), went back to Eyes and More, picked the first pair of glasses I originally tried on and was DONE WITH IT.
But then the shop assistant handed over to me a flyer with a krasactie (Google Translate gives me scratch action, but I don’t think that covers what I’m trying to say). It doesn’t matter how though, but I ended up winning a second pair of glasses for half price. So I quickly grabbed these kinda crazy brown-and-blue ones (below without colored glasses, but they will be brown), ‘cause they’re just made for my face, really (Luuk hates them though). And last but not least, €100 turned out to be covered by my health insurance. I guess it was my lucky day? Of coouuurse, I’ll show you more pictures soon when I receive them. Let’s hope I’ll get used to wearing glasses this time, because I can’t wait to welcome another kind of accessory in my life (oh, and because I want to take care of my eyes of course)!
