For those of you who are not familiar, I have been wearing prescription glasses since I was in grade one. That is a long time in my honest opinion – and through those years, I have had my fair share of nicknames. I have been called bug-eyed, a nerd as well as a geek. The last one I still do and I do not mind at all. However, let us be honest here … no one wants to stand out just because their glasses or look are not as appealing or trendy.

Prescription glasses have come a long way too. Back in the day most glasses (especially in the Philippines where I grew up) lenses where very thick and heavy. Since I inherited my family’s poor eyesight, I developed vision problems at a very young age. Thankfully, our generation now offers advance technology that keep those lenses thin, lightweight and even better than ever for being trendy and fashion forward!

Since I take part in managing our household expenses, I always search for bargain deals without compromising style and quality. There is no way I would pay for full retail price if I can avail it for a fraction of the cost. Personally, I love shopping at – they have well-known brands such as Armani Exchange, DKNY, Nicole by Nicole Miller, Ray Ban and so much more! That is not all, they also offer virtual try-on, competitive vision care plans and offer awesome deals! Here is the back-to-school eyewear I have picked out … it features a soft square shape with a touch of cat eye that shows off a fabulous pattern detailing on the temples. I’m totally obsessing on the contrasting pastel colors – it makes the whole frame POP!

Don’t you just love those feminine details? It is bold and soft at the same time! Since I have been wearing glasses for as long as I can remember, my back to school gear will always have fashionable eyewear on top of the list. I consider every detail, as I want to make sure it compliments my facial features.

Back to School Gear + OOTD Tips

1. Your eyewear / eyeglasses frames should fit and frame your face to bring out it features instead of masking or covering it up. Before purchasing and deciding what style to purchase, find out what will look best with the shape of your face.
2. Cool tones are nice but they are harder to find matching outfit and accessories. Look for darker, solid shades or frames with mixed patterns.
3. Enjoy your new frames and be yourself! Have fun creating looks and ensembles.

At the end of the day, you shouldn’t worry about what other people have to say. If you believe it looks great on you, so be it! Don’t ever let anyone define you by their words. I have been told one to many times that I am weird – and you know what I tell them? Weird is good. Because that makes me different and unique. I am not just like everyone else — in fact, I am limited edition! Strut your style and be confident about it!

JCPenney Optical is also offering a Labor Day Sale through 9/9 – 60% off one pair!

    It’s important to take good care of your eyes. But eyewear can get pretty expensive if you don’t know where to look. Sounds like JC Penney offers great deals when it comes to glasses!
