Summer Specs

I’ve been craving some new glasses lately.

You know what it’s like, fellow glasses-wearers. You reach a point where you’re just absolutely sick at the sight of your old glasses – and you crave a shiny, new pair. A pair that you haven’t accidentally sat on, isn’t covered in smudges and you haven’t been photographed in 2,324 times.

(Okay this might be a slight exaggeration, but you get the point.)

You want a new pair of glasses to add to your collection and you want it now darn it.

I had all of these feels recently. I was about to make an emergency trip to my local Specsavers when an email from the good folks at arrived in my inbox. At exactly the right time. (How did you guys even know?)

For those of you who aren’t already aware, I introduced y’all to back in January. (Y’all? I seem to have turned American – it must be the consequence of dating one.) are an online American retailers specialising in prescription sunglasses and eyeglasses.

They kindly sent me a fabulous pair of floral blue glasses frames late last year from their AW16 collection (which I absolutely adore, still wear and haven’t yet sat on – FYI). And this time I got to choose a pair from their sexy SS17 collection.

Usually I play it safe and go for rectangular frames; however, I really fancied something different. As I touched upon earlier, I have an American boyf, and he recently bought a new pair of glasses that were oval-shaped Wayfarer-style.

The top half of the frames is black acetate and the bottom half is metal. And I liked them so much that I decided to copy him.

I saw these black/golden beauties on the website and immediately fell in love. I adore the fusion of textures and the oval frames themselves seem to suit my face shape. Plus, I’ve seen a lot of glasses on the market recently with this style of frame – they seem to be extremely fashionable for this season – so it’s a win, win!

Now this means that the boyf and I are twins – but who cares when my new glasses are this nice! I’m all kitted out, in terms of glasses, for another season. Thank you,!
