There's a new place to get your cheap-but-cool glasses online: Mezzmer. The site just launched with a 24-frame collection will all vintage-inspired frames. Pick up a pair with your prescription for $99. To make sure you buy the right style for your face, Mezzmer will let you borrow 5 pairs for free to try on at home. No, it's not an original concept, but dammit this is America and we like options, right? Bonus: If you buy a pair of glasses, you get to pick a charity for a portion of your sale to go towards.
