Zenni Video Contest – Third Place Winner!

Jim Truong of City of Industry, Calif., created an animated video that wittily and imaginatively showed how different styles of Zenni glasses are indispensable components of various put-together looks. He said he wears glasses because “I like to fall asleep at odd hours and not worry about taking off my contacts. I hate poking my eyeball.”

Check out his video below and let us know if you have any tips for upping your fashion game with Zennis!
