Eye Buy Direct Review

Hello everyone!

I am a person who tends to wear contacts every single day. For anyone who can relate, I’m sure you’ve heard your optometrist say “you should give your eyes some breathing time, and wear your glasses once a week”. Now listen, I think we all know how much glasses with prescriptions from our doctor’s office or places like LensCrafters can cost. Usually in the three-digit range, even with insurance.

I wanted to find a different, more affordable option. That’s when I found the company Eye Buy Direct. I remember telling a cashier at Forever 21 I liked her glasses, and she had mentioned them. I’m so glad I took a chance and checked out their website! And no, I’m not sponsored or anything. I bought these myself and this is my honest review.

The website it pretty easy to navigate and is has an easy layout to work with. You can filter out many things such as the color, price, shape of the frames, and the size. My favorite feature is that you can “try on” the glasses by uploading a picture of yourself. It gives a preview of what you will look like with those frames, and I found it to be a decent estimation.

After hours of searching and reading reviews, I decided to purchase the Hepburn frames in the color Ivory Tortoise. I added my prescription, anti-glare, UV protection, and a brown case for and extra five dollars.

They arrived right when they were supposed to and came in the super chic and minimal black box. The case I purchased is brown leather (definitely faux), but it looks so classy and simple.

The glasses themselves were exactly as pictured. They sit well on my face, but the company also sends an adjustment tool with your package, so you can adjust it if necessary. Also, quick tip, you can go into any LensCrafter’s and get your glasses adjusted for free.

I love the style of these glasses. The ivory tortoise design is professional, yet fashionable, adding a nice touch. It’s perfect for work, but can also go with casual looks. Before these, my other glasses were a tiny rectangle shape, with an all black frame. I didn’t like it and only wore it at home. I’ve definitely been wearing my new glasses out and about, and have gotten a lot of compliments on them.

So, price-wise, these are amazing. The frames were $40 and with all of the things I added, the total came to $62.95. But, EyeBuyDirect seems to have a lot of deals and have a lot of social media promoters. I checked their Instagram and saw that on their story, they showed someone’s promotion link with a code. I used the code and got $15 off my purchase. I chose regular shipping which was $5.95, so my overall total was $53.16. That is a great price compared to the typical retail glass-wear stores.

They have a lot of different style options, with varying prices. Most of the ones I saw were from $22-$70. I think it has something for everyone, they also have sunglasses as well.

Let me know what you guys thinks and if you have a favorite place to purchase your glasses! Thanks so much for reading! Follow me on Instagram and Twitter at AmandaSushma. Also, check out my video review on these glasses here.

Loft Haul (Video) | AmandaSushma

Hello everyone!

Sorry for taking a little sabbatical from the blog! But now I’m back and ready to share some fun outfits, makeup, and other awesome things with you guys!

I made a Loft Haul video so you guys can see all the items I received. I really like Loft because it’s one of the first “adult” stores that caters to my size. I’m petite, so it’s hard to find affordable work pants and tops that fit correctly, but Loft has it. I also like that it carries sizes for plus sizes and taller women, so everyone should be able to find cute things from them.

Thanks for watching! Let me know which items you liked!

YesStyle Mini-Haul

Hello there!

I had ordered three items from YesStyle in February and I finally got them! So without further ado, here’s what I got.

Pompom-Accent Patterned Hooded Top:

Pom-Pom Hoodie

I really love this! It’s in the color “Honey”, from Tokyo Fashion. It’s actually really thin for a hoodie, but the actual hood is lined with fleece. It’s one of the softest hoodies I’ve ever felt! Also, I love the huge pom-poms! The only thing I hadn’t expected was that it was going to be a v-neck. It’s just unusually low for a hoodie, so I would recommend a tank top underneath. But overall, I really like this one!

Crochet-Collar Sweater:

I was looking forward to this piece the most and was extremely disappointed! From the look of the pictures the website used, the peter pan collar looked like it was sewn on the sweater, but only the top is. The bottom of the collar isn’t attached and it looks like you hurriedly sew a doily on your sweater.

Inset-Shirt Cat Embroidered Sweater:

INset
This one is my favorite out of the three! I was actually surprised because I had decided to take a risk on it. From the pictures the website had of it, I thought that it was going to really big, but it fit perfectly! The material looks thick, but it’s not at all. The “sweater” part of it, is really thin, so I can wear it during cold spring/rainy days. Very happy with this purchase! The store I got it from is Fairyland, but they ran out of this specific one! Sorry guys, but they have a lot of similar looking ones!

For those of you who don’t know what YesStyle is, it’s an Asian clothing website. From what I understand, it features many popular stores and fashion from China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, etc. There are so many stores on this website, I couldn’t go through them all! Some stores are high quality, others are low. When you click on an item, it’ll have a tab that says reviews. People who already bought the item leave reviews and let other people know what the product is really like. The reviews are extremely helpful!

One downside to YesStyle, is that because it is an Asian specific clothing store, the sizes run quite small. There are some that are the usual S,M,L,XL, but the majority of stores I came across all say “one size”. If you’re short, I would recemond you try this out! If you’re taller than about 5’4, I would suggest by only a couple items and see how they fit before you buy a bunch. I only bought the three items because I wanted to gauge how well they fit. I’m 5’1 and they were all quite long on me, so they may work for taller people. Let me know what you guys think!

Thanks so much for reading!
