So I bought some cheap glasses from China back in December from Zenni Optical.
I said I would report on how long they lasted. Three months, I have sour cream older than that. The plastic I now realize wasn’t just naturally occurring red plastic. Its peeling red paint at the tips, where it touches my naturally oily hair. Hmmm.
Is it worth it? Well if you are a fashion maven like me, cough, then its nice to have 10 pairs in every color to match your barrettes and toenail polish. But if you just need some quality and are frugal my 39 dollar glasses from 39 dollar glasses.com that I bought last year lasted longer. But if you regular readers (yes I realize adding the “s” was bold) remember, I also measured my pupil distance in the mirror because the lure of the instant internet gratification wouldn’t allow me to wait one more day and have my dh just measure it for me, thereby rendering them a 39 dollar headache.
Now in Zenni’s Opticals defense, they also have 10 dollar and 20 dollar and on up glasses.
I think I will just order another pair from 39dollar. I started getting the creeps when the paint started peeling because I thought what if there is lead in this paint. And its leeching into my scalp. And its what there’s lead in this paint? Eeks I already said that.
