Coastal.com has become the largest online retailer of eyeglasses in North America. They offer all the great styles that you can get at a traditional brick and mortar store and for only half the price too. The last time I went to my eye doctor to buy glasses, I paid over $150 for the most basic and plain plastic frames. They weren't even designer and they were that expensive. At Coastal.com you can find so many Designer Eyeglasses at a great price. They have all the desiger glasses you could want; Guess, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Fendi, Michael Kors, Ed Hardy, Vogue, Ray-Ban, and so many many more!
One of the designer brands that Coastal.com offers that I love is Derek Cardigan Eyeglasses. Derek Cardigan is a vintage inspired line of eyewear that is very in style right now. If you love large glasses, half frames, geeky glasses, square frames, and cat eyes then you will adore these glasses. Even better, all of the Derek Cardigan glasses are under $100!
I looked through the glasses at Coastal.com and it took me quite a while to decide on one pair. There were so many great eyeglasses to choose from. I finally decided on the Derek Cardigan 7021 glasses in the color Olive.
Buying the glasses was very simple. After I picked out the pair I wanted, I just filled out the prescription and picked out the type of lens I wanted (clear, photochromatic, or sunglasses). Then I could have chosen more lens options, but I went with the free package which included durable air lenses, anti-reflective coating, UV protective coating, and scratch resitant coating. I couldn't believe all of that was absolutely free! Usually I would have to pay over $100 for all of those special coatings on the lenses.
After a few days, I found a little blue Coastal.com box in my mail. I was so excited, I couldn't wait to open it up and try on my new glasses!
I really like them! They are well made and high quality frames. I adore the shape of them. I have never owned a pair quite like them. They are almost slightly a cat eye shape. Derek Carigan has some extreme cat eye shape glasses, but I like the subtle pointed shape of these more. I'm really liking the size of these as well. I think the larger frames shows off my eyes more clearly compared to smaller glasses. I really like the small detail of the Derek Caridgan signature on the side. It's that kind of detail that I think makes them even more special.
