New In : London Retro, Metropolitan Collection Glasses

Friday, 25 October 2013


I wear my glasses on a daily basis. It's rare to see me without them (I'm still trying to muster up the courage to give contact lenses a try!) so it's always nice to have a couple of pairs to choose from to mix things up a bit. I was recently sent the some frames from London Retro, which are exclusively available at MyOptique.

 The frames I chose were from their new Metropolitan line, and if you have a look at the different names of each style you will see that they all relate to the Underground. I chose Westminster Frames, a classic rectangular style which I knew would suit my face shape. These particular frames come in black and tortoise shell. I did debate over trying something a bit different with the tortoise frames, but opted to stick with what I knew worked well & it was a colour frame I was used to!

In total there are 17 different frame styles within the Metropolitan Collection, all of which have two color options. So depending whether you want to play it safe like I have, or try something a little bit different there will be a style for you. I know the particular frame wouldn't suit me at all, but I did think the cats eye glasses looked very glam!

I really like wearing these bigger framed glasses, they are slightly out of my comfort zone being the largest frames I've ever worn. My other pairs look tiny in comparison now! One thing I do like about having the larger frames, is that you can see my eye makeup a litter clearer. I'm sure other glasses wearers will agree with me when I say, its a shame when you do a nice makeup look on your eyes and then plonk your glasses on. People dont get to see the full effect! Now they can! :-)

I'm still toying with the idea of trying contact lenses. I put things very close to my eyes when it comes to applying makeup, so why can't I get my head around putting some contact lenses in? Please tell me I'm not the only one that has a problem with this! But for now I'm happy to just be rocking my Retro London Westminster frames.

Much Love, 


  1. You look gorgeous on that photo and the glasses suit you very much!! :)


  2. Looks like you chose a good 'un. They look brilliant on you!

  3. Love the glasses, they're not too big and not too small. Putting contact lenses in isn't as creepy and difficult as it may seem, you really get used to it quickly!
