You all know I wear glasses & I like to keep to a similar style each time I get myself a new pair. I’m a creature of habit so I always gravitate towards the same sort of frame. When I was asked if I wanted to try a new pair from London Retro Glasses I instantly headed towards the Restrospektiv collection to have a look at what was on offer. I decided to go for the Ohara frames, which I know are extremely similar to my previous pair. However the frame is slightly more cat eye in shape, making them a little more feminine. I actually think my previous frames from London Retro were unisex frames so they were a lot more rectangular. So if you want to get all technical in the end I have gone for something different! – Well that’s what I tell myself anyway!
It’s crazy how much of a selection you have to choose from when it comes to getting yourself a pair of designer glasses though. It can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to narrow it down. On this particular website, you have a whole range of styles to choose from. Realistically I should probably be a little braver and try out some new styles.. or least venture away from the classic black frame. Maybe I should give tortoise shell a go next time, or maybe even colourful ones, try a new shape? This is the problem I have, there’s always so many type to choose from I panic and just stick with a classic as I know they suit me best. But what If I do want to be a bit daring and venture away from the norm? Fortunately Glasses Direct offer a new free home trial service on their website. If I can’t decide on a specific pair next time I’m glasses shopping, I can select 4 different frames and try them out before I commit to purchasing them. It could be something minor like trying the same frame in the alternative colour options, or trialling 4 different styles to see if I would suit something different. Tom is actually looking to get some new glasses and struggles trying to find a frame size/shape that suits. We have spent a fair bit of time in the shops trying to decide on what to buy. He still hasn’t got himself a new pair so I suggested trying out this 7 day home trial service instead. It doesn’t even cost you to send the trial box back once you have decided (yay I love free postage!) I might even pop a review up on the blog if he decides to go ahead with the trial, I know sometimes people can be a bit apprehensive about things like this!
Do you find shopping for glasses hard? How do you like the sound of the home trial service they are offering?
