My new London Retro specs

I’m quite picky about the brands that I feature on this blog – I only ever talk about my favourites – and as a thrifty retail kinda gal, the products I share need to be the best bargains around. So when the lovely team at MyOptique got in touch with me last week offering all my readers the chance to win a free pair of their super-cool glasses, how could I possibly say no?! Not only is it a treat for you guys, but luckily, when I looked into their product range, I found a massive selection of über-cool designs at super-saver prices – I am officially a MyOptique fan and I’m not ashamed to say it!

As a glasses-wear since my teens, I’ve spent years wearing the wrong kind of glasses for me and have always been driven to contact lenses as a result. Every time I head to the opticians (usually a famous high street optician) I am always left slightly deflated by their product range and I find it really difficult to choose a pair of glasses at a price that I’m happy to pay. Lets face it, I’m never going to be the kind of person to spend hundreds of pounds on a pair of glasses – I know that I change my mind so often to I’ll probably be fed up with the design in a couple of months time, plus I am super-clumsy and am likely to sit on them and do them some damage! So it makes sense to me to shop as thriftily for specs as I would with any other piece of clothing. But with this ethos usually comes a lack of choice and I always have to allocate at least an hour to umm and ahh over the glasses and eventually chose a pair from the limited range. Thank goodness that I have now found MyOptique!

The designs on the website are very cool and exactly what I have been looking for all these years. Their London Retro range are fabulously well designed and do exactly what the name suggests – they are retro-style specs with a modern twist so I won’t end up looking like my grandma in an NHS pair! The glasses in this collection are named after iconic London stations and famous locations around the capital. I chose this pair of Carnaby glasses for their funky shape – I now feel like a trendy fashion blogger when I wear them! 😉 They were available in 3 colour choices but I went for red. I was delighted when they arrived looking exactly like the images online: a gorgeous deep burgundy red that would go with most of the clothing in my wardrobe – I’m a sucker for burgundy and can’t get enough of it! Plus these glasses come with a scratch-resistant and anti-reflective lenses (which I’d usually have to pay extra for!) as standard, which is great news for a clumsy glasses-dropper like me!
