Hello, my darlings, happy December! I hope you had lovely Thanksgivings and are ready to dive into the Christmas season. I had been a little under the weather, but I am back up and ready to share some exciting things with you as 2014 comes to a close and we start anew in 2015. (Let’s be real- did 2014 even happen?!)
If you have been following me for a while, then you know that I LOVE sunglasses. Getting the right pair that not only suits my style, but also fits my face shape and size is very important to me. I’m also very careful when I buy sunglasses because I actually browse for mine online- at times, I’m not sure if the sunshades will fit my head well or if they may look a little off because of my face shape, and the uncertainty can really bother me!
Imagine ordering a pair of sunglasses that you found to be ultra chic, but, when you open the box and try those bad boys on, you realize you actually opened up a box of disappointment. Avoiding these issues is ultimately the goal, and I’m so excited to share this amazing sunglasses company that has truly revolutionized the art of shopping.
Meet DITTO, the company that has made me and several others look at online shopping in a whole new way. DITTO and I partnered up to share with you their new online store, amazing try-at-home technology and a sweet giveaway! I had the chance to try out their site and all the fun that comes along with it and I want you guys to follow along! Keep reading for all the juicy details…
When you first get to DITTO’s website, you can browse their vast collection of sunglasses or optical glasses for both men and women. You can also take their quiz that will assist in putting together a personal shop just for you based on your style and exactly what you are looking for. Just click the “Take the Quiz” button on the front page and you are ready to start!
The first question in the quiz is pretty basic- are you looking for Men’s glasses or Women’s glasses?
The next one is also pretty simple- are looking for optical glasses or sunglasses?
Here’s the toughie- Do you know what you’re looking for? Actually, one may think that this is a tough question, but DITTO makes this process as easy as possible. I personally know what specific shades I like and want, so I chose “I know the specific look I want.”
The next question will ask what “look” you are going for. These looks are the different sunglass frames DITTO offers, so select the ones you like best for yourself!
The final step is to select the looks that suit your own personal style! If you do not see any that really resonate with you, just click the “see more” button in the upper right corner until you are happy with your selection! This step is going to help the stylists choose the perfect pairs of sunnies for your store.
If you don’t know what exactly you are looking for, that’s okay too! Just select the “I don’t know the specific look I want.” option and be on your merry way.
To get an idea of what your style is, DITTO will ask you to pick out some items that resonate with you. For instance, if you like the way that varsity jacket looks, go ahead and select it!
After choosing your items, the final question will be to choose the outfits that suit your style, the same question that appeared earlier for those who know the looks they’re aiming for.
That’s the end of the quiz, but it’s not the end of the fun! You’ll be asked to have your measurements taken so that 1) your glasses are the perfect fit and (this is the best part… prepare to be mind blown) 2) you can virtually try on your sunglasses…AT HOME. Yes, you did read that correctly and it’s pretty phenomenal. If you’re not quite ready to take the photos and measurements, you can always go back later!
Once you have followed the prompts you’ll be taken to your Ditto profile! This is what mine looks like right now; as you can see, my style has been evaluated and it shows me which styles suit my persona and face shape the best. On the right, my fit is shown too. My face width has been categorized as wide, so my recommended glasses will be for wider face widths. How perfect is that?
These are the recommendations I received for my style and fit- there are optical glasses as well as sunglasses for a wide range of choices.
Here comes the coolest part… trying on the glasses in the comfort of your own home!
Wow. Just wow. I selected a pair of sunglasses that I liked and I know exactly what it may look like on me before I place my order. How amazing! I don’t know about you all, but DITTO is now my number one place to shop for sunnies.
You guys are probably thinking that it can’t get any better than this, right? Well, my sweets, think again. DITTO’s new website that I just shared with you just launched recently.
