London Retro Metropolitan Frames* (£95)
Another pair of new glasses courtesy of the brand London Retro available at Glasses Direct. I always find glasses shopping so hard, so when an email came through to my inbox asking if I would like to collaborate with the brand again I jumped at the chance seeing as I am already a fan.
I now know what suits me which makes it a bit easier for me when it comes to deciding on new frames. This time around I decided to go a little bigger with the Metropolitan frames, which I believe are unisex. To mix it up slightly I chose to for for the black/brown style frames instead of my usual black. I will be honest I am a little dissapointed because I thought all the frame would have a tortoise shell effect not just on the bottom half of the frames. I guess on the plus side it makes a subtle change which I can easily get used to so all it isn't the end of the world!
As I've mentioned before in previous posts about the website, they do offer a free home trial where you can pick 4 different frames to try out before committing to buy. Something I may consider next time if I want to give a different brand a try other than London Retro Glasses! Sometimes it is a case of 'if it isnt broke dont fix it' This brand works well for me and they aren't too expensive either really. None of the frames are over £100 which is good for a branded pair of specs. Tom recently bought new glasses in store when he got his eyes tested and ended up spending a small fortune! If you are looking to save a few pennies it is often best to have a look to see what you can get online first!
Perhaps one day I will be brave enough to try contact lenses - because lets be honest there are some occasions where you want to just show off your makeup and glasses do kinda get in the way of that! I'm just a bit scared! I have quite dry eyes aswell so I don't know whether contacts would make it worse? Calling all Contact Lens wearers, share your wisdom and advice!
