Hello Fabulous readers. This post is written on behalf of my sponsor, VSP. This is a vision plan I have used as a near-sighted freelancer for many years. If you work in the creative industries or work as a consultant, you probably already know about VSP.
I come from a family used to wearing thick glasses. As a child, my dorky eyewear was a source of nerdy embarrassment. In high school I graduated to contact lenses. I never got out of my head that glasses were a geeky look, but they were still a necessity. (This is me at 13 years old in horrible frames and hair).
After going to college and entering the fashion industry, paying for health care in New York as a single worker in a creative industry was rough. Trying to upgrade my eyeglasses for a professional, fashion forward look was even tougher. “Designer” frames were exorbitant, you had to make sure your prescription was up to date and you still had to pay for contact lens fittings and the lenses themselves.
As a non-profit vision care company getting a VSP plan was definitely helpful to me. Their plans started at about $17/month. Their plans covered annual eye exams with low co-payments and a lot of convenient optometrists near wherever my latest office was. They have allowances for glasses or contact lenses. I wish I knew then, but happy to know now that my new plan provided by them gives me access to all sorts of designer frames like the stylish bebe collection above.
Now, with all of the gorgeous options you have to frame your face, your glasses are as much a part of your fall wardrobe as much as anything else. Go for a new accent color, a new silhouette or maybe a new finish.
Once you have your smart new eyewear look, coordinate it with an entire outfit and then win it all! Yes, enter VSP’s Pin It to Win It and you could receive a year’s worth of VSP coverage and a new bebe ensemble for fall. You don’t need glasses to see how sweet that is…
