Fantastic glasses~~Spex 4/28/2007

In the lovely area of 6th and Stewart lies a phenomenal place to get glasses. I had been needing a new pair of glasses for a year or so (getting older, ya know) and I went to Spex. I'm 46 and wear contacts about half the time and glasses the other half. A couple of years ago, tipsy from a party I crashed into a wall and broke my all-time favorite pair of glasses. I have been wearing peepers since 3rd grade, so I have had a LOT of glasses in my life. I put up with old, outdated glasses for 2 years and kept seeing cool glasses on everybody I saw. I was tired of my red pair, plus my vision changed for the worse, so it was high time. I did some sleuthing and came across Spex. When I went into the stylish store I was warmly greeted by Brandi, and she took me by the hand and started pulling glasses off the racks. It felt like "Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match...find me a find ...catch me a catch..." Brandi made me feel ever-so-at home, offered me coffee and we were off and running. I probably tried on about 50 pair of glasses, and I knew for sure one pair I wanted (or kind of what I wanted...framelesss like Stephen Colbert so I could take them off and look really cool and serious the way he does) and I was wide open on what I wanted the other pair to look like. Funny how the very first pair of framed glasses were the ones I ended up with, but then we tricked them out with lenses that darken in the light (can't remember what they are called) and the Brandi thought of some other adjustments that I hadn't thought of (like polishing the frameless ones) and I was so excited to get my new glasses! A week went by and Brandi called to say that the glasses were ready and they just completely blew me awya. Both pairs are perfect, funky and, best of all, I can see again! So, OK....I dropped $1800 on 2 pair of glasses, but the frameless ones will never go out of style, and the other ones I will have for at least 10 years so I was really psyched. They gave me a bunch of freebies: fantastic cases, special wipes, lens cleaner AND a coupon for a free haircut! I am very devoted to my hair stylus, but my hair is pretty straight-forward, so that will save me $50 the next time I need a trim. They also carry a line of hair care stuff that I hadn't heard of before, so I had to get some, and I am looking forward to my free cut. I guess the science behind having a hair salon/eye glass place is so they can do the "total" look, and I think that's a cool concept more
