A Friday shout-out to Fellow Four-Eyes: Some Special Specs for ya!

If you like the lunettes I wear in the various pics above, know this: they’re $US99 INCLUDING THE PRESCRIPTION LENSES!

You can order them online today from Bonlook and have them perched on your nose in days. Different styles, sizes, shapes and colours.

Here’s how:

1. Simply click here.

2. Then choose the shape, size and colour you like. Clockwise from top, are Nomad in olive, Urban Dandy in tortoise (sunglasses), the Nomad again and La Marquise in black.

My favourites, though, are the Urban Dandy reading glasses in tortoise... I wear them all the time.


 3. Follow the instructions to fill in your prescription details and sizing. The best idea is to a) get the script off your optometrist (making sure they provide the details for the distance between your pupils etc) and b) go to a glasses shop, try on some styles, and note down the measurements (written on the inside of the arm of the glasses)…then find a style that has roughly the same measurements on the Bonlook site. I have a big face and head and so only choose the Large styles in women’s. So you know.

Full disclosure: I get 15% of any referrals to Bonlook. They approached me about this, and offered the commission based on the fact I’d referred so many people to their site after getting asked where I get my glasses from on Twitter etc 34891784 times.

    Love you for making glasses look so damn sexy! I have to wear lenses ALL the time and am still attempting to make peace with wearing glasses in public since being prescribed them about 15 years ago. I’m gradually beginning to wear them more – I shall wear them more proudly now 🙂


  • That’s a great deal. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 14 years old. Mostly I wear lenses because I hate waking up and not being able to see (I can wear my lenses 24/7 for a month). My glasses are really uncomfortable. Might be time for new ones!

    I cant wear lenses so it it specs 24/7 for me – I am going to check out the site as my last pair locally was nearly $600 and that was with a not too expensive frame 🙂

    Perfect timing, thanks!

    They are such cute styles. I only wear glasses for reading & computer but I favor a big, thick fram -, they give you a much better field of vision. Plus they look adorable!

    I have already ordered mine – late January and can’t wait to get them (purple coquine). If they work then I am getting some more!!! Although I didn’t mention that I found them through your blog Sarah – should I follow up with them?


  • linda

    paid $520 for my last pair with a discount and then the lenses went all strange after a few months – so sick of getting ripped off because I have poor eyesight!~ might look into this


  • Sarah, I know this comment is off topic, but CONGRATULATIONS on the sales of the book!!!


  • Oh wow, I love these specs! I’ve had the same daggy pair of reading glasses for, erm, probably close to 10yrs!!!! Thanks for this post Sarah – I’m going to order a funky pair very soon! 🙂

    Hey Sarah,

    Just thought you should know about the terrible customer service Bonlook gives to their international customers. I ordered the urban dandy’s after seeing them on your site a few months ago and was super excited to rock some glasses after having dorky ones for so long! They took 6 weeks to arrive, and when they did they were a yucky orange colour – not the tortoise like your pictures. So I paid another $35 to send them back… and after 7 weeks and numerous emails they FINALLY received them. The last straw was when they asked me to pay another $35 to have new glasses shipped. 4 months and $200 later still no glasses. BUMMED!

    Chiming in on the terrible BonLook customer service. I have a pair of glasses that were fine for a year. 2 months later the lens went blurry – when I contacted BonLook I was told outside of warranty (2 months) and there was nothing they could do. So be warned the lens will probably fail and they won’t back up their product. Terrible slow response from customer service by email and they never answer their phone – shady!
