A Pioneer of Paisleys + Firmoo Review


______Firmoo, an online glasses company that I'm sure many of you have heard of, sent me over a pair of prescription glasses, and just in time, because I tossed my last pair of contacts the other day. Now I can live in these for a few days until I decide to crack open a new box o' eyeball lenses...

______I really enjoy the color and size of these, though. Nice and sturdy too. Excellent for accidentally falling asleep in. I usually go for black glasses because then they're more apparently nerdy, but these tortoise ones have a pinch of class to them that black lacks. Not so harsh, either. I like 'em lots. Firmoo now offers a way to try on glasses virtually by simply uploading a straight-on view of your face, which super helpful since a photo isn't always the best indicator or size and shape and such. In addition, with their First Pair Free program, you can get yourself a pair for nothing!


______I spent this past weekend cutting a bajillion (okay, more like a hundred) squares. These art classes, man. Makin' me think in all sorts of weird new ways. Rather than working on something ginormous, I've been passing the time squabbling with swatches of fabric. By fabric, I mean my bedsheets. Sorry, mom.


______Other than that, I've been feeling pretty ajdhakjsdsdfgdsf;; (yes, you read that correctly--I have been feeling keyboardsmash). Whenever I eat, my stomach ends up hurting, burning, or cramping in some manner, almost like there are two miniature martians inside me battling fiercely for whatever food ends up in there. That's the cutest and least miserable description I can whip up of the situation. I've got a doctor's appointment scheduled on Halloween, which is great since that means I'll (hopefully) be diagnosed with something soon, but at the same time, that's a whole week away, and I kind of wish I could be feeling better now!

Your new tortoise frames are the perfect mix of classy and geeky, and I love your pretty paisley dress.

sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, hope things get sorted out soon!

Katie Aman said...

Oh no, gorgeous! I'm sad you're not feeling well, it can be so frustrating to wait for a doctor appt to find out what's wrong. I hope you feel better immediately! That is an order! I'm glad you got a pair of glasses you love too, I love the tortoise shell so much! You still manage to look beautiful while not feeling well, just how do you do that? The dress is lovely and made up of the perfect colors. Also, your socks kill me every time, you're so quirky and fun, I love that.

Samantha said...

Your hair looks so lovely up and that hairpin is a precious little thing! I am loving your dress too, is it velvet? The floral print with the warm colours of the dress make it so perfect for fall. And I hope you feel better soon hon :D

Jessi said...

That dress!! GAH! I love velvet so much... And that hairpin is so perfect in your gorgeous hair. I hope you get feeling better girl! That sounds like an awful thing.

Rose-et-Violet said...

Aw man I'm sorry about the trouble that you've been having with your health! Hopefully, the doctor's visit goes fairly well.
Love the royal-looking dress you're wearing here. So opulent!


Alexandra Marie said...

I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well! I'll keep you in my prayers <3

This dress is beautiful, love the way you did your hair too! Alex

Sammi said...

THIS DRESS. Also, the glasses are wonderful! I always want to order something w/the first pair free thing, but I don't have my prescription info (like how wide whatever is, blah blah) and I can't really order them without it!

Brittney said...

I know I'm supposed to be focusing on the glasses, but all I can pay attention to are your great socks and those beautiful silver shoes. That is one great color combination that I'm going to have to steal for the future!


Imogen said...

This is one of the most incredible outfits I've ever seen! The dress is so unique. I love the shape, colour and pattern. I just adore the way you pair socks with your dresses, the pattern mix is perfect. Ali, take care of yourself. Really hoping you're feeling better. All the best.

Jamie Rose said...

Aw I'm sorry you're not feeling well! I hope your stomach feels better soon.

These new glasses are so adorable. I love tortoise frames. They're classic and neutral but with a pretty pattern. This dress is so pretty on you too. I'm loving your quirky socks, as always!

I've got this exact same Minkpink dress and I LOVE it! Velvet is so perfect for the holidays!

Xo, Hannah

Jacqueline said...

great dress ali, I hope your stomach sorts itself out, maybe it's stress from art classes and fabric square mind arguments! xox

Keit said...

Oh dear, hope you get well soon and the doc knows what he's doing. Not being able to eat is a horrible curse O_O I'll google your symptoms to see what might be the problem, yeah, I'm weird that way :P
The dress is lovely, you chose the perfect color to match the glasses ^_^

TheTinyHeart said...

The glasses look so cute on you! My eyesight is so bad that I can't order glasses from that site. I hope the dr is able to figure out what's wrong and you can start feeling better!

Those glasses are so cute, and very classy looking! I love how they look with that dress also! Very nice outfit Ali! The glasses look really good on you!

I hope you feel better! That was a cool description of your symptomns though, it would be awesome/horrible if there actually were little martians inside of you!:)

You look fabulous, I love your hair and everything just looks so cute <3

Cool new Firmoo glasses!

Ivana Džidić said...

You definitely need to have that checked...It may be nothing and it may be something, but it is always better to know. Maybe there is some kind of food you're not tolerant of and if I remember correctly you have mentioned something of the sort. It was really a challenge for me to discover what works and what not ever since I was diagnosed with Chron.

But let's move to happier look really really cute! and those glasses fit you so well:)

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

Those shoes are fab - love the bit of a heel.

(Hope you feel better soon).

Joyce said...

The glasses look awesome, I have a very similar one from firmoo that I wear all the time (well mainly when I'm too lazy to put in contact lens, hahah). I also really like the polka dotted socks with your oxfords, you are so good with matching socks+shoes+outfit!

Awww hope you feel better soon :(

Jen Hsieh said...

I hope you're feeling better by now so you don't even need that doctor's appointment later this week! But anyway, I'm glad to see that dress again because I'm in love with it. :)

And you always pull off glasses so much better than I ever will. Teach me your ways, please. <3

Halie said...

So stunning, I remember that dress!
