Black Velvet + Firmoo Review

______Recently, Firmoo contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing an honest review in exchange for a pair of their eyewear--of course, I jumped at the idea!  It didn't take but a few days for these lovely sunglasses to arrive, and when they did, I was more than impressed with them.  The quality of these beauties is high, and they're nice and sturdy and don't feel like they're going to break if I toss 'em around a bit.  And just in case you couldn't tell, they're kind of sort of super attractive.  Seriously, there's something about the way the light looks on these lenses that sets them apart from other sunglasses I have.  I'm quite fond of these shades, and will be merrily channeling my inner John Lennon with them both now and in the future.

______So, my lovely followers, if you're interesting in getting either some prescription or non-prescription eyewear that's good quality but won't break the bank, take a look at  In fact, they've got a program going on right now where you can get your first pair of eyeglasses for free, meaning that all that you have to pay is shipping!  They've got great customer service and will reply quickly to any questions you may have.  I would definitely recommend them!

______Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and listen to Mr. Lennon's Imagine while peacefully swaying side to side. Au revoir, my delicate citizens.

Those are some pretty sweet shades, and I love how you are making crushed velvet cool and edgy again. The cut outs in the back are so unexpected.

You make for a super attractive John Lennon. Just saying. I can't wait to see more pictures of you in these glasses because they're perfect on you, Ali.

Black velvet is also perfect on you What ISN'T perfect on you?

Those sunnies are really something! Love your velvet dress! Not being a big fan of velvet I'm surprised with some very cute pieces that I've seen lately representing this upcoming trend for the fall! I think it looks lovely on you, especially how you paired it with those booties!
