David Kind Eyewear

I've been wearing glasses since the 5th grade. Back then, glasses were not exactly cool.  I had gold wire rimmed with thick lenses - even though my prescription was not and is not to this day very bad. I switched to contacts in the 7th grade and stuck with that until college. Glasses were finally cool again. Plastic frames made a comeback and glasses were no longer reserved for "Nerds". Since then, I've loved wearing glasses as an accessory and to give my eyes a break from the contact-wearing.

My friend, Blair, and I got a chance to try a David Kind home try-on box. Unlike other at home try-on kit glasses companies, what I appreciate about David Kind is their stylists.  When you make a (free) account to sign up for a try-on box, you upload pictures or connect to your Facebook profile.  A stylist then picks glasses for you based on your coloring, face shape, etc. You also have the opportunity to request specific glasses or give your stylist some ideas of what you are looking for.  Since I have tortoise shell and black glasses that I already love, I wanted to play around with colors! My sister wears light blue glasses every day and gets mega compliments so if she can, I can...right?

Getting a home try-on is free and comes with no obligation so Blair and I thought it would be fun to have a try-on party at her house. This included our collective 3 kids running, screaming, laughing and photo bombing our pictures - but don't we look so serene sipping on our coffee and trying on glasses? You can check out Blair's post by clicking here.

We both found a pair we are super excited about. All we had to do was let our stylist know which pair we liked and return the box with our prescription.  Return shipping of our boxes was free and we can expect our prescription glasses in as fast as 5-10 business days!  I can't wait! Check back in a couple weeks to see which pairs we each picked.

You can check out and learn more about David Kind on their website.  You can also find them on Facebook and Instagram.  (They've also been featured in InStyle, What Wall Street Journal, & Bloomberg!)

  1. This is way too fun. I have never heard of anything like this. Recently I have noticed that my vision is starting to go. I am strangely a little excited about this because it means I can add a new accessory to my life and change my look up quite a bit. I have not made any decision yet, though.
