Rivet & Sway - a new way to order cool specs + score 20 % off

I honestly dread the day of my eye appointment, not the dilation, not the measuring of eyes but the trying on of glasses.  I stare blankly at all the glasses on the wall with no clue to pricing or how will look (thanks to being dilated and can not see worth a darn w/o glasses).  I never know what glasses will fit my face, what design works with what  face shape, etc.  It is like a crazy equation that I have yet to figure out.

Recently I found this super cool company called Rivet &Sway! They let you try on your glasses from the convenience of your home and order the ones you want!  The Rivet & Sway website let let me sort by face shape and width! I then had all my choices filtered and ready for my to choose.  I narrowed it down to three frames and ordered away!  You get to order up to 3 frames to try on at home for free (no need to enter your Rx just yet). Then you have 3 days to decide on "the one"!
See how cute the packaging is on the Rivet & Sway samples

I was torn, I was in love with two pair of glasses. I posed the question to my fellow Rivet & Sway Original Bloggers for their input and the same two glasses were the consensus.  So I bit the bullet and ordered the pair I would not normally order!

Ordering is easy peasy! Just ask you eye doctor for a copy of your RX and plug in the info. If there’s an issue a real person will contact you.  GASP! My only issue was my State has laws and a copy of the RX must be scanned and attached with order. Apparently the image I attached would not open and a get person at Rivet & Sway let me email them the attachment and my glass order was underway!

While in NYC for BlogHer12 my glasses were delivered and I got to pick them up at my hotel and sport my new specs around the conference!  Can you tell that I chose the Pinstripe?

I totally loved the ease of ordering online, trying my samples on at home with my contacts in so I could get a good feel and how fast they came.  It was a smooth and easy process.  I never expected ordering glasses to be so easy.   My hubby is jealous, he wishes they did glasses of guys this way as well.  Working, sports and two kids doesn't give him time to try on glasses like he would like as well. 

 Would  you like try some out for yourself?  Well I got a 20% off coupon to share with you! Use coupon code: CWHOUB09A3B18D at checkout when you order your final choice.  The entire process takes 13 days from home try on to Rx delivery, if the customer orders 3 days after their home try on arrives.  The coupon code expires 08/26
