I have had the same style glasses for as long as I can remember, and I wanted something DIFFERENT! I needed a change, something no too crazy, but still cute. This is where Rivet & Sway come in. Right before BlogHer, they approached a few bloggers about doing a review on not only their glasses, but their unique service. I checked out their styles, and KNEW I had to be in on this!
So, what is so unique about their service? Unlike other online options to buy glasses, Rivet & Sway have a try on kit. You can pick out 3 pairs of glasses at a time to try on, decide if you like them, then send them back and order your prescription. It is a really neat concept actually, and one that I think all online shops that sell glasses should offer. It really changed my mind on the whole thing. When I first heard of this service, I thought, “But I already know which pair I like best, I’ll just order those.” and I am SO glad for the try on kit option, because if I ordered the ones that I liked on their site, I’d be stuck with a pair of glasses that just do NOT work at all for me.
These were the ones I picked out for my try on kit.
This picture is MUCH better, and shows more closely to how they actually look. I think they make me look a little nerdy, and I like it!
To make the process a little easier, and stress-free, the woman in charge of the blogger review program, had them sent to her at the hotel in NYC, so that we knew we’d have them on time for some of the festivities, instead of worrying that they would not make it to our house in time. This was a very last minute thing, and I had placed my order only a couple days before I was scheduled to head out to BlogHer. We met up, and I got to try on my new specs right there.
I really like my new glasses, and I am SO GLAD that I took advantage of their home try on kit! I have NEVER, not ONCE in my life, received a compliment on my glasses….until I got these. It is really interesting to me actually. I have already been asked a few times where I got them, and told that they looked great. It is a good feeling to receive compliments.
Rivet & Sway was gracious enough to also offer Freetailers a unique code that will give you 20% off your order, should you wish to purchase a new pair of specs. They know you all love coupons!

HURRY though! The expiration date is the 26th of this month, so you will want to order your try on kit (FREE, but they do require a credit card on file, so they know you are real) right away to check out the styles that you like.
