About five years ago I noticed a significant shift occurring with my eyesight. When I first hit 40 I used reading glasses to view the computer. A few years later I needed them to read the labels on bottles. Now, at 48, readers have become an indispensable part of my life.
I have a pair by my bed, two by my computer, a pair in the kitchen, my bathroom and about 5 pair in my purse. I can’t live without them! So, when Readers.com contacted me about doing a post it seemed like a natural fit.
When I first started wearing reading glasses, they were just a tool I kept by my computer to help me see more clearly. However, when they started becoming a way of life for me I quickly realized that I needed to take them from mere function to fashion accessory. Anything that is going to sit on my face for the majority of the day has to be fabulous! And now, thanks to Readers.com, I have several more to add to my collection.
Have you made that shift? Is it time to take your reading glasses from function to fashion? I know it’s tough to realize you can no longer see without the aid of glasses, but glasses can be fabulous fashion accessories that enhance your features, coloring and your own unique style vibe.
I was first contacted by Angie who is the owner of Readers.com. She and her husband started this company in their garage and now have a staff of 60. This online company offers a large array of reading glasses and sunglasses; as well as, a prescription line (felix+iris).
I loved the idea of their homegrown business and the fact that she personally contacted me about working together. I was also thrilled to hear the Readers.com wants to offer a 35% discount to you to buy your own fashionable readers!
