I am a member of the four-eyed freak club. Have been for about four or five years now and I pride myself on my stylish eyewear. My first glasses were a gorgeous Red or Dead pair in a beautiful bright red with a multi-coloured detail on the legs. My granny actually picked them for me and they quickly became my signature style. I love them for that reason, but the frames were a bit small for me on placement so at my next check up, I got my red ones re-lensed and I also got myself a more ‘sophisticated’ Missoni pair which were more practical for placement.
About a month ago,
Specspost asked for a bunch of glasses-wearing bloggers to review some of their glasses. Specspost have a huge range of both glasses and sunglasses and have a few designer brands to choose from also. The best part, is that you can customise your lenses with any extra care you may need such as anti-glare and tints. Their website also gives you the specifications of the frames so if you’re like me and prefer a larger frame, you can choose glasses that are better suited to your taste.
I got to choose 3 pairs of glasses to try out and review and I also get to keep a pair too so I definitely need your help as I am STILL undecided. The three pairs I chose are all under £35 and are very stylish even though they are not designer. I was really impressed with the variety of glasses on offer that it took me a good while to decide which ones I wanted to try out.
“Elizabeth Diana” Purple Leopard Print £26.99*
“Twiggy” Vogue Inspired £27.99*
“Purday” Tortoiseshell Cats Eye £29.99*
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen my many poser photos wearing these beauts (Warning: I have many more). Apart from all the adorable and amusing nicknames, I found these glasses to be really good quality for their price. Although I couldn’t wear them for long obviously because I needed to see, but the lens sizes were perfect for me. I have to admit, I am in love with the tortoiseshell glasses but I feel like they would maybe be better as sunglasses? I think my favourite is the Twiggy ones. I love the purple of the leopard print glasses but I just don’t think they’re very ‘me’. I am very tempted to keep the Twiggy ones and order the Tortoiseshell ones as sunglasses for next summer. Thoughts?
You can get a home trial of their glasses from as little as £30 (which is the average cost of one pair) and you get a fully refundable deposit so it’s a win-win really. I doubt you’d be disappointed if you had a scroll through their range! Visit Specspost.co.uk
Which is your favourite? And which do you think I should keep?
