Hello New Glasses | David Kind


You guys are awesome.

Thanks for throwing your wonderfully varied opinions on my search for some new glasses (check out the original post here).

I ended up with two pairs from David Kind.


As you can see I went with number 5 and number 6.

The darker, thicker pair and the fun green cat-eye pair. Those two will work in conjunction with the super light-weight pair I’ve been wearing most recently. Number 2 and 3 were similar to pairs I’ve worn in the past and I was just ready for something different.

This is the first time in my life that I’ve had more than one pair at a time and I love that I can wake up and choose which one I feel like wearing depending on mood, activity, etc.

Big thanks to David Kind for reaching out to me and giving me the chance to share about this process! It was a simple, easy experience working with them and it went off without a hitch. Great service and I love my new glasses!

    Aren’t new glasses fun? If you have to wear ‘em, you may as well like ‘em, right? And #5 and #6 are absolutely perfect!

    Kylee said…

    Sorry…I don’t like the 2 choices-they don’t fit right! Makes you look so much older. Oh well, it’s your life!

      Ali said…

      Yep – isn’t it awesome that everyone gets to make their own choices?

  • 23.
    Alison said…

    Yep. Both pairs look great. Where did you get your sweater? It looks nice and soft and cozy.

    Kathleen said…

    Change is fun! I love your choices! I still remember when I was in seventh grade and trying to decide which new pair of frames I would choose. I knew I should probably pick the black frames, but I was so drawn to the red ones. I could only have one and I expected my mom to lead me to the black ones…but she didn’t. She said, “It’s your choice. Pick something you like.” I took the red ones and I loved wearing them every day!

    Kathryn said…

    #6 was my pick! Smart/confident/playful – my favorite look on anyone. :)

  • 26.
    Marilyn said…

    You look marvelous! I think I will try David’s later this year when I will be selecting new frames. My doctor’s office does not carry “cool” frames. It goes along with my OLW – create. Creating a new me! And I like the idea of being able to have some time to make the decision. Thank you for sharing.

    Krista said…

    They look great. Not my choices originally, but these are very hip and make you look younger (not that you look old) so awesome choices!

    Mary-Kay Tilden said…

    Ok, Miss Ali,
    Please, PLEASE, please answer this question…
    What is the brand and color name of the lipstick?
    Also, #6 was my choice and I’m so happy you got those. I’m happy you also got #5. Those are amazing as well!

      It’s called Wine With Everything from Revlon. I randomly grabbed it last weekend because I just don’t wear or have enough lipstick options. I got lucky :) .

    Rá! Number six!!! My bet!!! :)
    You look so nice wearing those ones!
    Loved it!

    Alida said…

    Both look great. May I also say that whenever you wear make up, you share a lot of resemblances with the current/recent Miss South Africa, Melissa Bam. Noticed it on your photo at Katie’s wedding too.

      Alida said…

      Sorry, Melinda Bam, Melissa is her sister.

    Please check out Warby Parker the next time you need a pair of lenses. They also offer try before you buy with their free home try on program. Frames at around $95.The best part: Warby Parker partners with non-profits to provide glasses for those in need. So for every pair you buy, you’re helping someone less fortunate be able to see. It’s a good feeling. I’m not affiliated with them in any way other than purchasing glasses and feeling good about being part of their mission. You look swell in #5, Ali.

      Ali said…

      I will check them out next time – thanks Renee!

    Mary Sara P. said…

    You look amazing! Yay, those were my picks. ;) I will definitely check them out when I need new glasses. Enjoy the new glasses and the fun update to your look.

    So glad you took my advice and went with #6! ;-)

    Patti L said…

    cute! i like them both

    karen c said…

    They look great!! And what a nice splurge to get 2 pairs, one dark and one light should cover any mood you’re in! ENjoy!

    Jewel said…

    They look great! What a nice way to purchase glasses. Often when I first buy new glasses, they need some tightening or adjustments. What do you do for adjustments needed on the glasses when you buy them through this company?

    Tiffany said…

    Love BOTH your choices! And I am so happy you shared the color and brand of lipstick… I was going to ask the same question! You look GORGEOUS with a red lip!

    beverly said…

    YAY! Awesome choices Ali! You look mahvelous! A daring new look that fits you and your adventurous spirit!

    Lorna S. said…

    Hi Ali,

    Both look great on you. I am interested in the buying process – how did they fit the rx to the glasses without checking for the pupil placement – or do you go into an optometrist and have them mark the glass?

  • 42.
    Izzy said…

    YaY!!!!!! I love #6 on you. So much fun. I’m kind of warming up to #5 too. Love the idea of two different styles that you can wear depending on your mood. I always end up picking sunglasses as my second pair…so predictable. I thinking I need to get some new glasses. :)

    You ROCK.

    Hi Ali~

    Loving number#6…you look awesome!!! I am needing to get eye exam AND then new glasses…Oh to how I hate the process. Such decisions! AND my script is SO expensive so you want to make a good decision on style. So I was wondering if you could answer a question.
    I usually go to Costco as with our insurance they are by far cheaper than the lab right by my eye doctor. BUT Costco does not deal with insurance AT all. So you simply have to pay up front and then they give you a itemized statement which I can then send in to our ins. Co. and they then will only give you out of network benefits…again still cheaper than eye center thats in with my Dr. So…I was wondering how that would work with this company. Not sure if you had to pay as you kinda advertised for them but do you know if they work with ins. companies AND give you a itemized billing to then send into insurance. i know I whould check with them. But I just read your post again while I had more time and this comes to mind. Thank you:)
    P.S. OH yea…the lipstick rocks!!!

      Hi Lisa,

      We have quite a few customers in your situation! We can provide you with an itemized receipt that can be used for your out of network insurance benefit. You can also use a FSA/HSA credit card. We do one of the widest prescription ranges online. One of our stylists would love to help you find a great pair of QUALITY glasses and I think you will find our process the most enjoyable experience online, or offline!

    #6 was my choice, and you look great in them, especially with the red lipstick!! You look young and perky!!

    Cindy Welch said…

    Love them, I tried the service as well and my new glasses are on the way. Love it. I tried to go a little out of my comfort zone, but after showing many people the frames, they all disagreed, so went more conservative….

    Shannon said…

    Nice glasses! How did your kids like them?

    So great to find somebody with some unique thoughts on this subject matter.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up.
