Happy Thursday Lovelies!
When My Optique contacted me to choose a pair of glasses to review I thought twice about it at first, as I had received a new pair of glasses in March this year here.
However, as I'm prone to loosing/dropping/breaking (yes, clumsy is my middle name) a 2nd pair of glasses seemed like a sensible option, not to mention they could create a completely different look for me by choosing a different style to the frames I already had.
What finally clinched it for me was browsing the website & discovering the amazing choice of frames My Optique had to offer. Knowing what a brand freak I am when it comes to my accessories - glasses/sunglasses included, I was impressed to see a decent array of designer brands to choose from...think Chanel, Fendi, Valentino, Miu Miu, Ray-Ban & London Retro who are launching their iconic Metropolitan range of frames named after London Tube Stations (avail September) .

Choosing Your Frames...
Luckily, as I wear a lot of sunglasses I'm pretty clued up on the type of frames that suit my face shape & colouring, as let's be honest, choosing glasses off the internet can be a little bit daunting.
Nevertheless, I decided to try the Style Finder which takes account of face shape, skin tone & hair colour to suggest frames for you.
I was really impressed with the selections suggested for me...the pair of Ray-Ban's I settled on were in this bunch of suggestions.
There's a personal Style Advisor on hand to help you make the final decision by way of answering questions & uploading a photo of yourself.
Order & Delivery...
Wanting to go for a more "Geek Chic" look, I settled on a pair of classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers in Tortoiseshell. I loved that anti reflective (important when I'm driving) & scratch resistant lenses were included in the price of my prescription lenses.
Ordered on the Monday, they arrived on the Friday...that's just 4 days including making prescription lenses...PDQ if you ask me!
Shipping is free to the UK.
You can return your glasses for an exchange or refund if you're unhappy with them when they arrive, but be careful as there are conditions & sometimes additional charges for amendments- best to read through these before ordering!
I'm so happy with my new specs I no longer consider them as the 2nd pair, I've been wearing them non stop & have received some lovely compliments from family & friends. They're now my go to pair & dare I say it, my Karl Lagerfeld's have been relegated to the 2nd pair!!
Of course, my best critics are you, my lovely followers...so what do you think?
A totally happy & fuss free experience!
A massive thank you to My Optique for my new Geeky look my new glasses have created!
Have a fabulous Thursday Lovelies
