Rivet and Sway is a new online destination for shopping the coolest eyewear for women. They only design for women, which means everything they make has style and sophistication. I was invited to their pop-up shop held at the University Village Swink Style Bar last week to check out their frames up close and personal.
Full disclosure: I was offered a free pair of glasses in exchange for this blog post. But if you know me, you know I only write the truth.
They don't throw many of these parties, so being able to try on all the different styles of frames was a real treat. After looking over the collection I was shocked to learn that the $199 per pair price was not a promotional sale, but their every day price. It includes the frames, prescription lenses and coatings, all the whistles and bells, plus free shipping. These are not your run-of-the-mill discount frames. They are refreshingly stylish and unique for the cost. I think the last time I purchased glasses through my eye doctor, the lenses alone cost $150!
The lovely Ritzy Ryciak, stylist extraordinaire, was on hand to assess my face shape, coloring and personality, then recommend frames for me to try on. It actually made my choice more difficult because she suggested frames I probably wouldn't have tried myself, and they looked amazing! I ended up choosing the Spitfire in Tortoise and Galapagos green, but I already know which style will be my second pair.
Here's the thing. They know that women are busy, so they made the website easy to use and all inclusive, with fast, free shipping. What could be better than that?
However, if you aren't able to attend one of their pop-up shops, no problem. You can experience Rivet and Sway the way they originally intended. Just go to the website and click on Style Advice and you too can get help from Ritzy. Narrow your choices down to 3 and they will ship them out to you to try on in the privacy of your own home. For free. There's no obligation to buy, just try them on, make your choice and return them postage paid. Don't blame me if you end up ordering all three!
My new frames arrived within just a few days, and I love them!
