A friend of mine needed glasses and knew the owner of this franchise. I wouldn't say that I need new glasses (and as it turns out, my prescription from 2 years ago remains the same), but I did want a fashion accessory update. And I don't know if you know this, but also - buying glasses is sort of like updating your personality.
As it turns out, I am still sassy as I was two years ago, but slightly more feminine and less futuristic, a touch more fashionable and sunny. That is what my new glasses purchase says about me.
