Is Your Wardrobe Rainy Day Ready?



When the rain is coming down, and you don't really need to go outside, it can be easy to stay inside. But that would be no fun!





Being ready with the right outerwear is key to enjoying the day no matter what Mother Nature throws your way.  Your wardrobe should include at the minimum a pair of rubber boots, rain jacket, and umbrella.

Outfit Details: rain boots - Burberry (similar); black tights - Urban Behavior ; cream pull over sweater - Banana Republic, (similar) ; tan pomp pomp sweater - Fenn Wright Manson (old) ; rain jacket - Cole Haan, double faced travel packable rain jacket (similar); handbag - Gucci, Soho Leather shoulder bag; umbrella - Pasotti, Iconic Golden Lion; eye glasses - Chanel

What are your rainy day essentials?

An Accessory We All Need (sooner or later)


Eye glasses - whether for reading or seeing distance as we enter the "women of a certain age" (if not sooner) chapter in our life - chances are we will require one or both. Me ... both. But, bi-focals are not an option for me (according to me). So I have a pair for distance and a pair reading. The only problem is that I'm often running around the house searching for my reading glasses. I've tried drug store readers and while they are "cute/fun" - too often the lens are easily scratched and the frames quite flimsy. But, spending and extra $400-plus for frames (my prescription is very mild so I can get away with readers) just to have a spare reading pair also doesn't make sense to me.

So when I received an invitation to try out a pair of eye glasses courtesy of Firmoo, I thought why not? 

A week later ... These arrived in my mail box. Complete with a hard case, a soft pouch, cleaning cloth and mini-screw driver.
The eye glasses were exactly as I saw on the website ... the red and nude two tone is quite elegant and the metal detail on the corners adds a little personality... don't you think?


 I keep them on my writing desk ... no more searching the house for a pair when I want to write a letter/note to someone. 
No more running upstairs to my office or bedroom when I need to read the news paper ... I just walk over to my writing desk - and voila a pair of reading glasses!!!
Did I mention the beautiful detail ...?

Ok I know what you are wondering ... what about the quality? Ladies I'm happy to say the plastic though light weight is durable and feels smooth to the touch. After a little adjustment, the fit is great - they include a handy screwdriver with your order (or you can visit your local optometrist who often will adjust at no charge). If you have a prescription - just enter it on your order form. Should you encounter any challenges with your order the customer service is efficient and able to address any concerns. 

I have been using my Firmoo reading eye glasses for about a month now and I am most pleased. This particular pair of frames is only $29.00 and you can find them here on Fimoo's website. Check out all the fabulous eye glass options (readers, prescription, sunglasses, safety glasses etc.) on their website here ; on Facebook here ; or Instagram here.
