Coastal.com and Derek Cardigan Eyeglasses: Great Style and Great Price

This post brought to you by Coastal.com. All opinions are 100% mine.
Until this past December, I don’t think many people realized I needed glasses.  I actually got my first pair in 6th grade – they were big pink plastic frames and I felt very cool in them (it was the late ‘80s).  However as I got older, I didn’t like wearing glasses and kept a pair just for driving, seeing the chalkboard in class, or going to the movies.  When I was getting married, I decided to get contacts so I could see Karl while walking down the aisle, and I have worn contacts ever since.This winter, I had my eyes re-checked and decided a pair of glasses would give my eyes a rest from contacts once in a while.  I found I really liked how I looked in them… but I didn’t like the pricetag.  That’s why I was excited to find Coastal.com where they have stylish frames for great prices.  Coastal.com has become the largest online retailer of eyeglasses and contact lenses in North America, offering an alternative method of purchasing eyewear online and offering the same designer brands and products offered in brick-and-mortar stores for half the price.  Not only that, for every pair of glasses purchased, Coastal.com donates another pair to someone in need! Look good, while doing good!

I was especially impressed by the Derek Cardigan line of Designer Eyeglasses, which feature very on-trend styles but not a single frame is over $100.  Derek Cardigan’s vintage inspired line of eyewear is on trend, statement making, yet still classic.  Derek Cardigan eyeglasses were even featured in Flo Rida’s “I Cry” music video and Alicia Keys' “Brand New Me” music video!

Knowing from my glasses buying experience in December, I have a big noggin.  Seriously, most glasses look strange on me because of the size of my head.  I knew the size of my current glasses and used that as a guide on Coastal.com.  Since I already own traditional tortoiseshell frames, I was looking for statement glasses.  I really fell for Derek Cardigan’s 7003 frames, which are an oversized Wayfarer style in black.  I love the math symbols on the Derek Cardigan frames, a very fun touch.

Derek Cardigan 7003 Frames

I ordered my glasses late on a Wednesday and when I came home from work on Friday, my Coastal.com order was waiting in my mailbox!  The Derek Cardigan eyeglasses came in a hard black patent case and came with a glasses kit of mini screwdriver, spray cleanser and a chamois.  As for the glasses, well I am a fan.

Not too small for my face, quite comfortable, and cool looking.  The prescription is accurate, and I enjoyed wearing my new glasses all weekend.  I liked the glasses with a band tee shirt and boyfriend jeans, as well as dressed up for my friend's “high tea” themed baby shower and Date Night with my husband

The Coastal.com ordering process was quite simple.  I called my eye doctor for my prescription, and entered it into the site.  My doc didn’t provide me with my Pupillary Distance (PD) but Coastal.com provided simple instructions for me to figure it out on my own.  I couldn’t be more pleased with the entire process and will be ordering from Coastal.com again in the future… and they very likely will be another pair of Derek Cardigan frames!
