Specs and the City: MarchoNYC Frames Are Chic Yet Affordable (Plus: Win a Trip to New York!)

By on

Big Apple, big style. As the fashion capital of the U.S. and home to next month’s Fashion Week, New York City embodies chicness and cutting-edge trends—including the latest eyewear styles. Directly inspired by this style capital is the MarchoNYC optical collection, encompassing city trends through its four collections: East Side, West Side, Uptown and Downtown.

Available at many local eye doctors’ offices near you, these stylish specs are also affordable—plus, VSP members get an extra $20 to spend on top of their existing frame allowances when they purchase a featured frame brand like MarchoNYC. So as you’re looking to use your 2014 vision benefits, MarchoNYC glasses are a great, affordable option that can have you looking like you just came straight off the catwalk!

How would you like to win a trip to New York City to experience the Big Apple?

Just click here to take this survey and tell us what your MarchoNYC “look” is, and you’ll be entered to win a trip for two to NYC and the chance to receive a pair of MarchoNYC glasses. Bonus: give yourself an extra entry by tweeting a link to this blog post with the hashtag #MarchoNYC.

Entries will be accepted through January 29. Click here for sweepstakes terms and conditions.

  • Natalie J Vandenberghe says:

    I’d love to have glasses that fit well, look great, and help me see better. After wearing contacts for more than 30 years (using reading glasses over contacts for the past several years and wearing my bi-focals when I’m at home), I’d like to give up the contacts and only rely on glasses. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Marla King says:

    I could always use another pair.

  • Rachel Bernhardt says:

    It would be so helpful to win a pair of glasses! My research contract was cut off due to government cut backs and I haven’t been able to find another position for nearby a year. My current pair of glasses were purchased in July 2013 “on the cheap” because of my financial situation, and they already have a crack- which I discovered one morning when the glasses had been sitting untouched on the bureau overnight! In other words, I got what I paid for.

    So, as you can see, I really need a new pair of glasses, preferably a well-made pair of glasses from a reputable company such as MarchoNYC, but the only way I can hope to get a good pair of glasses would be to win them.

  • Theresa Davey says:

  • Cindy Hampton says:

    I do need glasses bad, so does my son. Haven’t been able to afford them on disability checks. The ultimate prize is to win glasses for him and I and take him to New York. This would be a dream of a lifetime! If you would like to make two peoples dreams come true please pick us. If you can’t pick me can you please pick my son to win a free pair of glasses? I couldn’t even get him a present for Christmas, no tree, no Christmas dinner nothing, we just stayed in our room watching TV pretending it wasn’t Christmas, so at least this might make a dent in an awful time he had. If you can find it in your heart I would be very grateful. Thanks for anything you could do. Cindy Hampton
